Take NCLEX-RN outside US?

  1. I'm going to a nursing school in US. After graduation, do I have to sit for NCLEX-RN in the States? Is it possible for me to take NCLEX in Canada? or in Hong Kong?

    you can take nclex anywhere it's held. be it in korea or india. but why spend additional $150 when you can take it in any state in US regardless of where you applied?

    Do you know what other countries are NCLEX-Rn held? I know definitely Hong Kong. not sure about other countries.

    Yes, one month after graduating from nursing school, for personal reasons, I need to leave the country for about 1 to 2 years, then come back.
