    Hi, ghillbert, I saw this thread while searching for NP H1b info. I am F1B in adult/geri NP program in Pennsylvania, and planning to graduate in May (or August) 2015. I have the option of taking one last elective in summer 2015 so that I will have more time to prepare for the board. I feel uneasy with the timeline because once I graduate, I only have so many days (60? 90?) to apply for the test, and actually have to pass it the first try. Your timeline restored my faith. Thank you!
