Nclex regs in GA

  1. 0
    I have seen several topics about the Nclex and I was wondering if anyone knows if you can take the Nclex after 3 years from your graduation date?

    I read where a lady graduated in 2008 and had taken the Nclex in 2012.

    According to Georgia State Board of Nursing a graduate is unable to take the Nclex after 3 years from their graduation date.

    Every state is different. It would be best to check with the board of nursing in your state

    410-6-.01 Licensure by Examination. Amended.
    (1) The Board-recognized licensing examination is the National Council Licensure
    Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN), for which a passing result must be
    achieved.
    (2) An applicant must pass the licensing examination within a three year period from the date of graduation for graduates of United States nursing education programs or the date of eligibility for graduates of out-of-country nursing education programs.
    (3) An applicant whose period of eligibility has expired must reestablish eligibility as a duly qualified applicant by enrolling in and graduating from an approved nursing
    education program.

    Some states have no time limit to take and pass NCLEX so could look at surrounding states; however would still have problems obtaining GA license.
