How long after graduating with an ADN does one have to take the NCLEX and get their license?I graduated in the summer of 2015 with my ADN and want to know if I'm still eligible to take the NCLEX in the state of Michigan? What do I need to do? TIA

Talk to your Board of Nursing they will be able to give you the information you are seeking.

You need to reach out to your state board of nursing with that question. 8 years is a really long time to have been out of school and not taken boards or done any nursing. Likely you will need to take a refresher course.

If you haven't signed up for it, I believe it's anytime? I live in Florida. They recommend you test within 90 days after graduation. So, good luck!!!
