I will be graduating from nursing school
in December. I went to a board meeting for the BRN as part of my school's curriculum and they told us to apply for the NCLEX 2 weeks before graduating from nursing school.
I have a criminal history and I know they will take longer to review my application because of that. I am curious if anyone who has been in this situation can give some input. I don't want to apply too early because the board staff said they tend to lose documents if we apply too early, but I want to allow enough time for them to review my documents. I have almost everything I need ready.
A second question I have is the board wants a work performance evaluation, but my job won't give me one until I have been there for a year. Can I submit my documents without a work performance evaluation? Surely there must have been applicants that didn't have a job and couldn't provide this either.
Any input would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
