part of the licensing process now is to pass the exam and although I haven't had to take it my understanding is the exam can be done whilst checking answers. I am sure someone will correct me if that is wrong

Make sure you read all the documents they say you need to know in advance. Have them open while you are doing the exam just in case. I remember it was not difficult but time consuming. Most questions were common sense while I had to google some of them. None of my friends failed it. Good luck!

[ONTARIO] Hi there, yes CNO has a lot of study materials and it is ALL very important in helping you to plan, prepare and pass your jurisprudence exam. Even though you "can write until you pass" you ideally want to pass it the first time. According to the College of Nurses, "there is no limit on the number of times you can write the examination."

The jurisprudence exam helps you to protect your license once you get it. It is all the laws, by-laws, regulations, practice standards and guidelines that govern nursing in Ontario (Canada).

Don't see it as a "waste of $40" see it as a practice run for your CPNRE/NCLEX if you have not written your CPNRE/NCLEX yet. See it as a safeguard for your license.

Yes it is "open book", but you need to prepare your materials you will refer to ahead of time. Otherwise you end up burning through and wasting a lot of time looking up material and you only have 3h15m to write the exam and answer 150 multiple-choice questions as an RN or RPN. You want to learn this material very well and do a very "thorough review" of the material. You don't just want to "learn it and forget it". You will not finish the exam if you do not prepare in advance.

If you have any other questions about the jurisprudence exam feel free to ask me. Happy to help.;)

I had to write a jurisprudence exam to get licensed in a maritime province as I had graduated out west. The College of Nurses had a large document that I read before writing, then had it open while I wrote and passed no problem.
