4. QuestionDoes one need NCLEX-RN exam to practice in Canada also

 

Answer: Yes, in order to practice as a Registered nurse in USA or Canada for the first time, you must pass the Nclex exam which is a National Council of State Boards of Nursing,(NCSBN) examination, Nursing usually handled by Pearson Vue.

N.B. Some agencies are willing to take the responsibility off you as soon as you have passed the IELTS. They will sponsor your NCLEX-RN exam journey, and recruit you once you have passed.

In the subsequent edition, I will be listing the agencies that can sponsor you from the beginning.
