    Just double checked on pearsonvue's websites. There is a pearsonvue testing center in Singapore but it does not offer NCLEX testing as of the moment.

    Everyone can check this by themselves as well by clicking 'Locate A Test Center 'option on top of the website then choose Prof. Licensure in the 'Area of Study' and then NCLEX testing in the 'Testing Program' option.

    Countries w/ Pearsonvue test centers currently offering NCLEX testing are the ff: America Samoa, Australia, Canada, Germany, Guam, HK, India, Japan, Seoul, Mexico, Saipan, Puerto Rico, Taiwan, UK, US, US Virgin Islands and nothing more.

    Pls. do note that Pearsonvue does not exclusively just give NCLEX exams. It offers a wide variety of Examinations and Certifications. So it does not mean if a country has a Pearsonvue testing center that it automatically handles NCLEX testing as well. NCSBN determines w/c country NCLEX can be given base on their discretion so if there will be any new Testing Centers that can offer NCLEX testing it has to be approved by NCSBN first w/c is also the reason why Task force-NCLEX (from the Philippines) constantly negotiates w/ NCSBN for a possibility of a test center in Manila.

    Also, note that Bangkok has a pearsonvue test center but it does not offer NCLEX testing as well.

    Or in my earlier post, they should point and click to this instead of the pearson professional centers:

    See where Pearson VUE has test centers that deliver the NCLEX examinations.

    Sorry, but no. That is an office of theirs, but not a testing center for the NCLEX exam. You must look up the countries where the NCLEX is available, not where they have an office.

    And that is not a new office. Pearson Vue handles testing for many certifications all over the world, which ones that can hold the NCLEX exam are approved by the Board over the NCLEX exam. And is specific to them only.

    Singapore is not a listed NCLEX testing center.

    And if you look at the link above that you posted, you will see that Singapore is not listed.
