Sitting NCLEX in New Zealand?

  1. I am a recent nursing new grad in New Zealand.
    I have a keen interest in Nursing in the US.
    Can someone please inform me of how I go about sitting the NCLEX exam?
    From what I have found out so far online, you have to sit the exam in the state you apply for? So am I unable to sit the exam here in New Zealand?- Il have to fly to US to sit in?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated, Thanks!

    Hi There, just wondering if you ever ended up transitioning to the states? I am trying to do the same thing and wanted to hear about your process? Thanks!

    Suggest you check out the Nurse Registration forum as well as the Immigration forum under the World tab above. Also be aware of retrogression and the 3+ years it can take once you have met state requirements and find a employer willing to go the immigration route with you.
