Does New Jersey have temporary permits for new grads so they can work while waiting to take boards?
New Jersey does not issue temporary permits for new graduate practical (LPN) or professional (RN) nurses. Only a few facilities will hire "GN" s (graduate nurses) or GPN's (Graduate practical nurses) and permit them to complete orientation and precepted skills in NJ while waiting to sit for the NCLEX-PN/NCLEX-RN. New graduate APN/nurse practitioner candidates can apply to the BoN for a work permit letter to begin practice while waiting for certification.
