I am likely to start Linfield's ABSN program this June and set to finish about August 23, 2013. Those who completed these two programs already, can you discuss how the timing of graduation and passing NCLEX so that you can apply to new grad residency programs. I did a little research and it doesnt look like I will really be able to attack the application process for these programs until next April 2014, due to deadlines and such. Is this accurate? Any advice on how to handle this would be great.
