To ensure public protection, the Georgia Board of Nursing requires applicants to pass NCLEX-RN as a condition of licensure. NCLEX-RN measures the competencies needed to perform safely and effectively as a newly licensed, entry-level nurse. Passing the exam demonstrates your competence so that you can launch your nursing career.
The NCLEX uses Computer Adaptive Testing (CAT) to administer the examination. CAT is a method for administering exams that merges computer technology with modern measurement theory to increase the efficiency of the exam process. Click here for more information on Computerized Adaptive Testing.
