Question regarding license renewal. I have a few more CE credits that I have to finish by May 30 which will be no problem at all but can I still renew my license although my CE hours are not complete which they will be by my expiration date.

Yes you can do it before they are done. NJ doesn't require proof that your CE's are done. They do random auditing of nurses to ensure compliance. If you are selected for the audit you are notified by mail. Here is a link you might find helpful.
This is a long shot and I am doing research now, does anyone know... how i can find out about NJ license renewal? I just got back from a 6 month deployment and before that I was a recent grad, no RN experience. I know we have to do CE's but I''m not sure about the specs or anything like that. Any advice or info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
Unless you are audited, you don't need to provide proof of CEU's. You just check the box that says you've completed them. But if you get audited you'll need to provide proof that says you completed all your required CEU's before your license was renewed.
So yes, you can still renew, but it could come back to bite you. You can get CEU's for free through Medscape. I'd just go do a few free hours on there before you reapply.
