How long after graduating did you wait to take the NCLEX? What is the average wait time? Thanks for all responses.
I waited about four weeks. I don't know what average is, but most of my classmates took it within 3-6 weeks.
Rnn2003, MSN, RN
I waited four weeks after graduation to take the Nclex and that was only because I wanted to attend the review that my employer offered to new hires.:balloons:
It ended up being about 5 weeks before I took the NCLEX after graduating. I signed up as soon at I got my ATT. Good luck
