Graduate Nurse Licence

This allows a recent graduate to practice as a Graduate Nurse while waiting to complete the RN requirements. This licence is limited to 4 months and can be renewed to a maximum of 2 times.

Once you receive your Authorization to Test (ATT) email from Pearson VUE the Graduate Nurse Licence application will now be available to you if you wish to practice as a Graduate Nurse until you write the NCLEX-RN exam.
