How long after you graduated did it take you to take the NCLEX-PN?

Nurses LPN/LVN


I am halfway through completing LVN/LPN school (finishing Feb 2010) :yeah: and was wondering how long did it take for you to take the NCLEX-PN after finishing school? And when did you receive your license? Thanks:heartbeat

Specializes in med-surg.

I finished on May 15, 2009 and took my boards on Augsut 4, 2009 and passssssed!

It actually took me a little longer, graduated March 25th, didnt take the test until July 30th, passed, got license number on website 8/11. Some people in my class took it right away and failed it. Just depends on how well you know your stuff and whether or not you can interpret the questions.

Specializes in LTC.

I graduated July 22. Received ATT Aug. 20 and took my boards on Aug. 22. So exactly one month after graduating. Got license 4 days later.
