Interim permit question


I heard that if you fail the boards your IP permit is no longer valid. Can someone point me in the direction on where I would find this info online?

Check your BON website, and read the written information you received with your interim permit.

The assumption is that the vast majority of candidates pass NCLEX on their first attempt (>80%), so some states allow graduates to practice as RNLP (Registered Nurse, license pending) or GN (graduate nurse) prior to taking NCLEX, and while awaiting results. As far as I know, all of those states require a candidate to immediately cease practicing in this capacity and notify the employer once a failing board score is received. A candidate who fails to follow these requirements may jeopardize a future license.
