So, I have a lot of questions and I hope that all of you can help me find some answers. Some background on me, I have a previous degree in Kinesiology and have worked in cardiac rehab, as a college physical fitness and wellness instructor, and a personal trainer. I'm currently in an accelerated BSN program and I will graduate in Dec. 2011. As the economy in MI is awful, my husband and I plan to move to TX immediately after graduation, among other personal reasons that we're planning the move.
So, my questions:
1. Should I take the NCLEX in MI, then endorse it in TX, or instead take the NCLEX in TX initially?
2. If I take it in TX initially will it be a quicker?
3. Will I get my license quick enough to apply to an internship program that starts in January?
4. Is there anything that I should/could do to promote my chances of getting accepted to a new grad RN position or internship?
Thank you in advance for all of your replies!!
