About the Temporary Permit

Both RN and LPN applicants may request a temporary permit. A temporary permit allows you to practice nursing until the results of the NCLEX are available. The permit is non-renewable and valid for only six months. Persons who have failed an NCLEX examination, or who failed to appear to take an NCLEX examination are not eligible to receive a temporary permit.
