hi all just had a question. i will be graduating may 2007 and was wondering when i should start applying for nursing positions. graduation will most likely be around may the 20 something. i plan to take kaplan early june and sit for boards in july, but i am unsure when i should actually start applying for positions. should i apply and state my anticipated grad and nclex date? i don't currently work for a health care establishment and other than clinical and some volunteer work i never have. i though about applying for student nurse positions but opted not to because i like my current employers and have worked here for several years (federal government agency). any responses greatly appreciated!!!!
