When to begin applying

Posted

I am a senior nursing student set to graduate May 2016. I participated in an internship this summer on a psych unit and know this is where I want to work post graduation and licensing. My question is, they currently have job openings on this unit listed on their website. Is it too early for me to apply? I plan to precept on this floor during school, so should I just wait and see what happens then? Thanks in advance!!!

Check and see what the job postings are saying. Some places won't look at applications where the applicant doesn't already have a nursing license. If the job postings state that a license number is required, wait until after you've passed NCLEX.
