Important Note: The Records office normally takes about 6 weeks, post commencement date, to send out requested transcripts, but they try very hard to process requests by nursing students first. Transcripts are usually received by the Hawaii Board of Nursing within 2-4 weeks post commencement date. The Office of Student Services (OSS) will also send a letter verifying your graduation to the State Board of Nursing the work day after your graduation commencement. This letter will allow the State Board to assess your eligibility for examination.
Once the Hawaii Board of Nursing determines your eligibility for examination, they will send you the NCLEX/CAT Candidate Bulletin and Registration Form which will tell you how to register for NCLEX.
Register for the Exam directly with Pearson Vue Professional Testing
Register via internet, mail or telephone
Once the NCLEX/CAT Data center has processed your registration and verified your eligibility with the Board of Nursing, you will be mailed an Authorization to Test (ATT) along with a list of Testing Centers.
Once you have received your ATT, you must schedule your appointment to take the test at the Pearson Professional Center of your choice.
Take the test. Test will last a maximum of 6 hours.
The Board of Nursing will mail your results approximately two weeks after taking the test. DO NOT CALL THE BOARD OF NURSING AS RESULTS WILL NOT BE GIVEN OVER THE TELEPHONE. Unofficial Results will be available within 48 hours through Quick Results Service (www.pearsonvue.com/NCLEX).
You can re-take the exam within 45 or 90 days after the last date the exam was taken.
After passing the exam, the License fee of $100 will be due.
