Am I a nurse??

  1. Well I graduate from my RN program this weekend. Am I a nurse then? Or technically do I have to wait to pass boards before I can say I am a nurse?? I am curious. Thank you!

    You survived nursing school and should feel proud to call yourself a nurse. You will be a graduate nurse until boards but a "Nurse" all the same. You do not have to wait until your boards ro call yourself a nurse, just remeber you are a grad nurse.

    Welcome to nursing.
