A new version of the NCLEX-RN will launch on April 1, 2023. The Next Generation NCLEX (NGN) exam will include case study questions that are reflective of nursing practice today and test the writer’s clinical judgment. If you are taking the NCLEX on or after April 1, 2023, use the NCSBN resources below.
If you are eligible to take the NCLEX, you will receive an email from BCCNM Registration Services with instructions to register and pay for the exam through the Pearson Vue website. Do not register until you are notified by BCCNM that you are eligible for the exam.
The NCLEX-RN uses a computer-adaptive test (CAT) format. The test will adapt questions to your ability level as you proceed through the exam.

The fee to write the NCLEX is $360+GST per attempt. This fee is paid directly to Pearson Vue and is non-refundable. This is in addition to BCCNM
application and registration fees.
The NCLEX-RN is available year-round in some locations, and on specific dates in others. If you would like to write your exam at a temporary testing location, be sure to time the submission of your application to ensure that your ATT period will overlap with the dates of the chosen test location below.
