What is NCLEX?

The NCLEX test, also called the National Council Licensure Examination, is a government standard and approved test that each state regulatory board uses to determine whether a graduate nurse is prepared to become a registered entry level nurse and can practice as an LPN/LVN or an RN. NCLEX exams are administered by the National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN).

The NCSBN is in charge of providing the State Boards of Nursing with a substantial and dependable examination that can show the hopeful’s fitness of a candidate to perform safe and effective entry-level nursing care.

There are 2 kinds of NCLEX tests and which test you take relies upon the job that you look for:

  • NCLEX-PN: National Council Licensing Examination for Practical Nurses/ vocational nurses
  • NCLEX-RN: National Council Licensing Examination for Registered Nurses
