    Timeline for Taking the NCLEX

    My soon-to-be-wife, and American, and I intend to move to the US in a couple of years. I am a staff nurse here in the UK. I'm just starting to check on those things I need to know about in order to become a registered nurse in Wisconsin, and it seems that the NCLEX is the place to start. But, how long is the NCLEX good for? If I take it in six months and don't make the move for 18 months after that, would I need to retake it? Thanks for any help!
  3. Is there anybody on this forum that works at Gundersen Lutheran hospital? Could you please tell what it is like to work there, and what type of salary you could earn. I'm an RN in the UK, I nurse on a 25 bed Trauma and Orthopaedic ward, each shift I care for 12 or 13 patients per shift depending on which end of the ward I get. These patients come from accident and emergency department where I will look after them pre op and post op until they go home or transferred to a re hab ward. We deal with a lot of patients with dementia and Alzheimer's. My partner is American, and we're thinking of moving to the US in a couple of years; she's from the La Crosse area, so we're looking at living along the Mississippi.
