Do you have to pass the NCLEX before your hired in IL? I know in Missouri you can start working but have to pass NCLEX within 3 months.

Some of my friends who just graduated in may had job offers before graduation. Of course they were pending licensure so it could be rescinded at any time by the hospital.
One caveat is that they were already working as techs at the hospital.
