Quick question, I did the CPNRE test last week..is it too early to apply for RPN jobs? Can I put myself as RPN or just "PN" until it's official...will any companies bother looking at my resume if I don't officially have license yet/no CNO license#? Or can only expect interview once registered/name appear on the website? Hope someone who went thought this before can answer! Thanks!

You can absolutely apply for jobs. Just make sure you clearly state on the application and your cover letter and résumé that you are awaiting the results of the test.

You can use Graduate Practical Nurse for now. Not wise (or legal) to use RPN until you’re officially registered! I would begin applying immediately, you never know what might come your way!
