Who administers the NCLEX exams, and what is their purpose?

How can candidates prepare for the NCLEX exams?

Candidates can prepare by applying for licensure with their state boards, using study resources and review courses, and understanding the content areas covered, such as health promotion, psychosocial integrity, physiological integrity, and safe care environments.

How do I start my NCLEX Application?

First, you have to choose your desired state so we can determine which documents, certifications, or English proficiency tests they require. After submitting those documents and completing any certifications or tests your chosen Board of Nursing is requiring, we monitor your application process and provide insight into any additional documents they request to complete your application.

Will I need to be a US Citizen / Green Card holder to take the NCLEX?

Yes and No. This varies depending on the state you wish to apply for. States such as New York, Texas, and Illinois do not require a SSN (Social Security Number).

Do I need work experience from my country to be eligible for the NCLEX?

For NCLEX-US applications, work experience isn't usually required. Instead, completion of an approved nursing education program is necessary. Requirements vary by state, so check the specific criteria for the state where you aim to be licensed.

How much does the NCLEX Application cost?

NCLEX Application fees vary depending on the state you wish to apply for. Costs usually include Board of Nursing registration fees, requesting your documents from your educational institution, transporting those documents to the board of nursing, CGFNS evaluation services, Proficiency exams, and additional documents your chosen Board of Nursing wishes to request.

Please note that we cannot retrieve, transport, nor submit your documents from / to your institution / board of nursing on your behalf but we can help you collate everything, ensure documentation meets state requirements, and understand the details and deadlines along the way.
