Change to number of NCLEX writings allowed

Posted Nov. 1, 2016

Effective Nov. 1, 2016, there will be no limit to the number of times CRNBC applicants can write the NCLEX-RN, as long as they have a valid CRNBC application. This change is being made to harmonize exam administration policy by regulators across the country.

Please note: Our provisional registration policy has not changed. If applicants are unsuccessful at passing the national nursing exam after two attempts, they will no longer be eligible for provisional registration.  These individuals will be unable to work as a Registered Nurse in British Columbia until they successfully pass the NCLEX.
