The National Council of State Boards of Nursing began accepting Canadian registration for the National Council Licensure Examination-Registered Nurse on November 3, 2014. The first examination in Canada will take place on January 5, 2015. This will be the first time the NCLEX-RN is used for licensing in a country outside of the United States. The NCLEX-RN replaces the Canadian Registered Nursing Exam, which was last offered on October 1, 2014.
The new licensing program is the result of Canadian RN regulators selecting the NCLEX-RN for proper assessment of registered nurses in Canada. The new test offers increased security, accessibility and provides timely results for prospective RNs.
The test will include both metric and imperial measurement options and will be reviewed by a team of Canadian experts that will ensure the appropriateness of terms used in the exam. Nurses from across Canada will also be included in the writing and review panels for the current NCLEX-RN.
The entry-level assessment can be a daunting examination for nurses who have completed their required nursing program. Finding appropriate study material is often one of the challenges in preparation for national assessment.
