Students and Graduate Nurses

IMPORTANT NOTE: Temporary Closure of PearsonVUE testing centres due to COVID-19 precautions

Effective March 25, 2020, some PearsonVUE test centres have begun to reopen after making a number of changes to enhance the safety of those taking the test as well as the staff working in the centres. Not all centres will be immediately open due to a variety of factors such as staff availability and the availability of a sufficient supply of cleaning and disinfectant materials.  More test centres will be opened as soon as possible based on staffing, solving supply logistics and implementing appropriate safety measures based on provincial and federal guidelines.

The Winnipeg testing centre now has some availability for NCLEX-RN writings, while other testing centres may remain closed. For more information, log in to your Pearson VUE account to check availability.

Applicants for NCLEX exam eligibility and GN registration are encouraged to continue to submit their applications to the College and work towards completing all other application requirements.
