Hi, I completed my ADN but I didn't pass NCLEX the first time. I really need a job. I worry about getting a job as a tech or something in the hospital knowing that I might pass Nclex in a couple of months and quit so I can be an RN... or is that a good idea? As a tech, would a hospital appreciate my experience and be glad that I am going to move onward and upward with them? I don't think I qualify for a temporary permit because I failed on the first attempt. I know I can pass though I am in limbo, not a student and not a nurse. Please help, I really need work now. I have a 5 month old that's counting on me. Any suggestions? I love nursing and I just want to keep moving forward.
