How many times can you take NCLEX?

  1. I thought you can take NCLEX as many times as you want. But, I just checked NCSBN website, it said 'the minimum frequency within which a candidate may retake the test is established by policy by each individual board of nursing and NCSBN." I am in Georgia, how many time can I take NCLEX-RN in Georgia?

    You should probably check the Georgia state board of nursing website, might have some info? Some states have maximum number of times you can take it and then you have to have remedial classes.

    Varies state by state. Check your state's BON. Hopefully they will give you the answer.

    A quick look at the GA BON website shows that the relevant law is 410-6 and does not state a number of times you can take the test, it just says you must pass the test, and you have 3 yrs to do so before you have to take remedial education.

    This post is over 2 years old. Always check with state nursing board and if you can't see anything contact them.
