Thanks for that info.
I have recieved my letter from the NYSED to say that I can sit the exam but I havn't yet registered with pearson veu. that is my next step - just wanted to make sure how much revision time I had.
1. If you have not registered with Pearson-Vue, then you do not have the ATT. The Authority to Test is the letter that is required for actual admission to the exam site. It is sent by Pearson-Vue after you have paid the fee, and they have received an okay from the BON to release it.
2. What you have is a letter telling you that you have had all of your credentials approved for licensure in NY, pending outcome of your NCLEX exam. Two different letters.
3. NY is usually one year from the time that you recieve the letter to take the test, and Pearson-Vue gives you a 90 day window to test in for most states, or you forfeit the fee.
Best bet is to read what is stated in your letter, it gives a cut-off date for testing.
