Hi, I completed my ADN but I didn't pass NCLEX the first time. I really need a job. I worry about getting a job as a tech or something in the hospital knowing that I might pass Nclex in a couple of months and quit so I can be an RN... or is that a good idea? As a tech, would a hospital appreciate my experience and be glad that I am going to move onward and upward with them? I don't think I qualify for a temporary permit because I failed on the first attempt. I know I can pass though I am in limbo, not a student and not a nurse. Please help, I really need work now. I have a 5 month old that's counting on me. Any suggestions? I love nursing and I just want to keep moving forward.

Hi Ashley - I live in north Louisiana and at our facility we have had some nurses in your same situation and they did take other jobs in the hospital while they were waiting to retake boards.

Good luck with Nclex next tie!

Anne, RNC

Also in N. LA and some of the students from my class failed the first time. They worked as techs until they passed the 2nd time!
