Graduate Page for
LPN & RN Students

If you are planning to sit for PN or RN NCLEX, this page is for you!!

WITC’s process of completing the students’ records may take up to 15 business days AFTER GRADUATION to complete.  Statements of Graduation will NOT be submitted/approved until all campuses have conferred student records.  The Boards of Nursing will require an additional 15-20 business days to process the applications.

In order to give WITC and the applicable Board of Nursing time to process all the paperwork, WITC will only respond to inquiries regarding the process 6 weeks after graduation.  Updates will be posted on this web page as they occur.
