Hello!

I recently graduated with BSN and and going to schedule my NCLEX sometime late January ( trying to give myself at least a solid month to prepare). My residency starts Feb 10. My question is IF I fail NCLEX how soon can I retake it and do hospitals secure the job for you in case that happens or will I have to reapply for the next cohort?

Thank you!

45 days after you are notified that you failed.

You may lose your spot and have to reapply or they may just move you into the next cohort. You would have to ask the hospital.
