take NCLEX without capstone


Do you need to pass capstone to sit for CA NCLEX? I have completed all prereqs and fund/pharm, MS I &II, OB/peds, and psych. I am currently trying to pass capstone but heard it is not a requirement to sit down for CA NCLEX.

CA mostly likely does not have a specific requirement for a course named "capstone" however there is a requirement that you must be a graduate from a board approved nursing program and if the program that you are attending has a requirement that you must pass a "capstone" course in order to graduate then I'm afraid that you will need to pass this course in order to sit the NCLEX.

Best of luck.
