I didn't think that was possible! Personally I wouldn't recommend it. Imagine climbing to one of the highest ranks in nursing with zero actual nursing experience. After you get your BSN I would try to work for at least a year. You pick up a lot on the job and I think it would be a benefit for you.

Why do you think it would be just us? Any test administered through Pearson (including the MCAT) will require test takers to don a mask. If you don't feel comfortable testing, then don't. You should reach out to your state's BON and see what they say about extending your ATT window.
I got it a couple weeks after I graduated but I should have gotten it sooner. It seems most people take 3-4 weeks to study with it which is how long the least expensive option is (a month of access). But it really depends on how well you feel prepared! If you feel unsure you should definitely take more time to look over your stuff.
Did you really feel like the NCSBN review was that good? I did not feel like the questions were challenging enough (so I felt like it was under-preparing me) and the rationales could have been better. I was annoyed I spent money on it honestly. But I am glad it worked out for you in the end.
You can get them done at the UPS store. It depends on your state though, in FL we had to get ours done but I see from this thread other states don't. You should check with someone first before you waste your time/money.
