Hello,

I just wanted to know if anyone knew if the Canadian NCLEX is the same as the US NCLEX?

I am planing on writing the US exam, but since I live in Canada, there are many prep centres around here I would like to go to, however Im just not sure if it's worth it if the US exam is different.

Can someone please help, or offer any suggestions?

I don't think that the Canadian exam is NCLEX. Could be wrong...

Actually, Canada switched over to NCLEX: https://www.ncsbn.org/6655.htm

The same NCLEX-RN exam will be used for Canadian and U.S. entry to nursing practice in 2015. For questions about whether you can practice in another state/province/territory, please contact the board of nursing/regulatory body for that jurisdiction.
