The Canadian Council of Registered Nurse Regulators (CCRNR) has released the preliminary NCLEX-RN exam results for the first six months of 2015, the first year that NCLEX-RN could be written in Canadian jurisdictions. On Sept. 1, all nursing schools in Canada in jurisdictions using the NCLEX-RN received the results for their graduates for the first six months of the year. Canada’s nurse regulators are accountable for ensuring that licenses or registrations are granted to those who have demonstrated they can use their nursing knowledge to provide safe care. In January, Canadian regulators, with the exception of Quebec, adopted the NCLEX-RN as the exam that tests whether an applicant to the nursing profession in Canada is ready to provide safe care to the public. The NCLEX-RN tells us whether an applicant has the ability to assess and respond to changes in vital signs, perform comprehensive health assessments, assess a client’s need for pain management, perform calculations needed to safely administer medications, and maintain client confidentiality and privacy. These are just a few examples of the knowledge, skill and judgment that is assessed on the exam. Visit CCRNR’s website for additional information.
