Registration Time Limit

NCLEX registrations stay open 365 days waiting for candidate eligibility from the NRB. Once candidates are made eligible, candidates must test within the validity dates on their Authorization to Test (ATT) email.

  • If candidates are not made eligible or are denied eligibility by the NRB within the 365-day time period, candidates will forfeit their NCLEX registration and exam fee. If this occurs, candidates will need to reregister and pay another exam fee after the current registration expires.
  • Candidates may not have two NCLEX registrations (of the same exam type) open at the same time. If a candidate reregisters before the current registration expires, the second registration will be processed and denied, and the fee collected will be non-refundable.
