To be eligible, you must meet one of the following:
I’m a student in my final nursing semester: You’ll be eligible to take the exam once we receive the list of potential nursing graduates from Dalhousie University, St. Francis Xavier University and/or Cape Breton University.
I’m a new graduate in Nova Scotia: If you didn’t register for the exam in the final semester of your nursing program, you are eligible to take the exam at any time.
I’m a new graduate from an out-of-province nursing program: You’ll be eligible to take the exam once we receive confirmation from the nursing regulatory body in your jurisdiction of study that you’re eligible to write the NCLEX-RN® Exam.
I’m an applicant registered in another province: You’ll be eligible to take the exam once you’ve met all the criteria for licensure in Nova Scotia, with exception of the successful completion of the jurisprudence exam since that’s to come.
I’m an internationally educated nurse: You’ll be eligible to take the exam once we have written confirmation on file indicating that you are eligible to write the NCLEX-RN® Exam.
We will contact you directly when you’re eligible to write the RN Jurisprudence Exam.
