When can you sit for the board exam (for the state of Florida)? Do you have to wait the 2 years of post grad internship OR can you take it immediately upon graduating? As I understood it, you would have to wait the 2 calendar years before you can take the exam for licensure but a friend who recently graduated (last month) says that that rule was changed last year and that you can take it as soon as you register as an intern (before you even begin the 2 years). Which is it?

What license are you talking about? PhD level in clinical psych? Masters level?

If you are talking Phd, it is in no way 2 years after graduating as you need 1 year postdoctoral hours (internship is pre-graduation)

The masters level. Last I checked, you needed 1000 hrs practicum, then an additional 2 years of internship (post grad) and then you can sit for the test. But my friend is telling me you can take the test right after graduating as long as you've registered as an intern. Im not sure I understand that because you still wouldnt be licensed until after the post grad internsh. is completed, right?

Isn't it on the board's website? In AZ, everything is on the site. Here, we took it right out of school, but I know every state is different.

Default Ncmhce

The NCMHCE is by far the more difficult exam of the two focusing on
experience and the use of the DSM-IV-TR. Without a working knowledge
of diagnosis, there is no way you will pass the NCMHCE. The NCE with
the exception of the statistics is far easier than the NCE.
