I am in the process of working my way through all the license by exam steps having just graduated out of state and moving to NJ. I have my ATT finally, and have scheduled my NCLEX. I had my fingerprinting done 2 weeks ago. Does NJ give a temporary license as a GN for a period until your NCLEX is taken and passed like other states? I guess I thought I would have that by now since the fingerprinting is all computerized. Is that wishful thinking?
Thanks for any help -
I just graduated and haven't even received my ATT yet, but I will start working as a Nurse Intern in a few weeks. At least at my hospital, there is no temporary license, but I am certainly able to begin work as a Nurse Intern and my hospital gives me 2 months to pass NCLEX. Until I provide Human Resources with a letter stating proof of passing NCLEX, I just can't do certain RN things like starting IVs, passing meds, etc.
Hope this helps!
