I will be graduating in May with an AAS in nursing and will be starting a BSN program in June. I am going to take the NCLEX as soon as possible after I graduate. I was wondering if I am able to apply to RN jobs now, or if I must wait till I pass the NCLEX to submit applications. I live on Long Island. Thanks for any insight.

I am sure every facility is different but my experience in New York was that most wouldn't even consider an application until I had passed NCLEX. Never hurts to apply but it might be that it sits in a pending pile until you let them know you have your license.
