State Board Examination
To be registered (licensed) to practice professional nursing, graduates of approved programs must pass an examination, administered under the authority of the State Board of Nursing. The computer-assisted test, known as the NCLEX, may be scheduled soon after graduation; examinations are given in all jurisdictions throughout the United States. Information on the exam is available from the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX).
