Hi, I'm a new grad RN in Canada, educated in Canada, and I want to write the Nclex soon. I've done some research and I know that there are several states that do not require Canadian nurses to do the extra CGFNS portion of the exam for international nurses. What I'm wondering is if it matters what state I choose to apply to write the exam with? Is the Nclex exam the same in every state?Are there any Canadian nurses out there who have written the Nclex and have suggestions for which state I should apply to? Thanks for your help!
