NCLEX in CanadaRegister Today!
- by nursesmarty Nov 27, '12Does anyone know when and if for sure that Canada will be administering the NCLEX for licensure? Also, when and if Canada does proceed with the NCLEX, will other countries such as the USA be able to practice nursing in Canada if they have already passed the NCLEX in their home country?
- Nov 27, '12 by Fiona59It won't be the NCLEX as Americans know it. It is to reflect Canadian education, values and norms.
From what we understand, it'll be administered and drafted by the company.
It won't be an identical test.
So you will have to be tested for Canada.
We are an independent nation with our own requirements.
- Nov 27, '12 by janfrnAs Fiona59 said, the examination will remain the CRNE. The only similarity to the NCLEX will be the common administrator. The new completely computerised version of the CRNE is expected to be offered in 2015. Content and focus will remain the Canadian health care system and the exam will continue to be completely separate and different from the NCLEX. No one will be permitted to practice nursing in Canada without passing the CRNE, no matter where they come from.
