2016 NCLEX-RN: Canadian Results - Full Report
Message from CCRNR's President
As a council of regulators, we share a common legislated role: to protect the public through the regulation of nurses. The NCLEX-RN plays an integral role in meeting this mandate; it is one way that we evaluate whether an individual has the required competence to deliver care safely.
The NCLEX-RN has been in place since 2015. While maintaining the exam’s integrity requires regulators not be directly involved in preparing students to write the NCLEX-RN, we are working with educators and other stakeholders to ensure nursing graduates have what they need to write the NCLEX-RN. We also continue to work with these groups to determine what factors are influencing the outcomes of those who choose to write the exam in French.
