Hi guys, I'm an NP student expecting to graduate next year. I started this program while I was working bedside on a very busy step down unit and I was ready to move on! I recently got an awesome job as an RN on a different unit and now I'm not so sure if I'm ready to leave this position so soon. I still want to finish the program, especially since my work has been paying for it but I want to ideally stay in my current position for a few more years. When I graduate as an NP, am I required to take the boards within a certain amount of time?
