What about new graduates that have not had any practice?

New graduates must be licensed within 2 years of graduation or they will be required to complete a refresher course upon passing NCLEX®. Because of the steep learning curve for new graduates as they enter practice, new graduates that do not practice at the level of their academic program within 2 years are considered by the Board to be in a vulnerable position. The Board has determined that an update of knowledge and skills is necessary after 2 years of non-practice for these individuals.
