Hi everyone!

I am graduating from nursing school next week! I am eager to take the NCLEX-RN as soon as possible. I know that I have to wait until my school sends my transcript to the board of nursing (I'm in VA), but I'm wondering about the turnaround time after that.

Any idea/experience about roughly how long the VA BON takes to process the application and send the ATT? They already have my application and are just waiting on my transcript.

Once we get the ATT and call Pearson to schedule the test date, I know they have to give us a date within 30 days. I'm wondering how far in advance they will be scheduling. Am I likely to get a test date for 30 days? Or is it possible that I could test the next week?

I know this sounds so Type-A but I am trying to get a handle on what the next few months will be like for me. There aren't that many jobs posted for new grads in northern VA, and if I get an offer, I want to be able to start immediately.

Thanks in advance!

If you want to be ready to take a job offer, then take the first available testing appointment. There really is no other way to do it, unless you get hired before testing. That is risky though. Good luck.
