Thankfully, I am almost finished with nursing school. December here I come! :spin: I am debating when is best to take the NCLEX. I have heard different things so wanted to get some more opinions. At this point, I would like to take it pretty much the day after graduation if possible. I figure the information will be fresh in my mind, I will have been studying non-stop up until that point and I can't afford as a new wife and graduate nurse with lots of student loans to pay off to sit around for months studying. I'm pretty much thinking if I do not know it by the time I graduate then I may just not know it ever.... I have heard it is best to take it while the info is fresh and more importantly before you work too long and see how things are really done rather than how the NCLEX tells you they are done. Did anyone take the NCLEX right out of school that might shed some light on the situation? Thanks!
