NCLEX Canada!

  1. Hi everyone,

    I would like to know once a nursing student passes the NCLEX-RN exam in Ontario, can he/she be able to practice with that license in United State since the NCLEX used in Canada and the United States is the same. Please let me know

    I would greatly appreciate your help in this regards.

    Sincerely yours,

    Yahya Ahmed

    Hi guys,

    I got my answer however, please let me know if someone has transferred to US after passing NCLEX in Ontario and what where the requirements does not matter which state I just want to know the process.


    If a Canadian student takes the NCLEX for licensure/registration in Canada, will they be able to work in the
    U.S.?
    The NCLEX is only part of the nursing regulatory licensure/registration process. As such, any other
    licensure/registration requirements or policies are determined by the regulatory body or board of nursing in the
    jurisdiction in which the candidate is looking to practice. Candidates will need to contact the regulatory body or
    board of nursing for further information on the requirements and how these can be met.

    Your best bet is to contact the BON in which ever state you are interested in working for and asking them/ review online their RN requirements
