Nclex in mn after excelsior

Published

So I know I just need my completion date in MN, but I'm wondering if anyone applied to the state before being totally done? And also, how long will it be after my cpne before I can test in MN?

I think MN only needs a letter of completion from the school so that is ussually ready within 2wks of passing when they update your status on MyEC

Hello! I passed my cpne on November 4 2011 and I paid all of my grad fees as soon as they would let me at EC, which did actually take several weeks. I also paid a fee a the MN Board of Nursing and signed up with Pearsonvue during this time. I got my ATT to test I believe the 1st week of January and passed boards 1/4/2012. You do need to be completely done with the ADN nursing program before EC will release your info.
