RN & PN Licensure Information
Begin your application for licensure by examination after passing your HESI Exit and no more than 60 days before graduation. Check with the Office of Finance to make sure your account is paid in full. Start by registering in the state in which you will be practicing. Once you work your way through all state requirements, then register at Pearson VUE for your NCLEX. The state and Pearson VUE will issue your ATT (Authorization to Test). Then you proceed to sign up to sit for your NCLEX.
You must proceed step by step. Have patience with the process. Remember, each state requires an official letter of completion be sent by the school. Make sure you are financially cleared before starting the licensing process as we have to secure financial clearance before processing your request. Your transcripts cannot be released if you have an outstanding balance.
