NCLEX-RN®  Examination for Canadian Graduates and Internationally-Educated Nurses

The NCLEX-RN® is administered by the National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) and is delivered by Pearson VUE. The SRNA provides you with the eligibility to write the NCLEX-RN® and will grant registration and licensure to practice as a RN in Saskatchewan. 

You must complete 2 applications including one with the SRNA and one with Pearson VUE. We highly recommend that you apply first with the SRNA before applying with Pearson VUE. This will ensure the requirements are met in a timely and efficient manner. 


If you are a graduate of a Canadian nursing program, you may be required to apply for the NCLEX-RN®  exam and/or initially licence as a RN with the regulatory body in that province. Please check with the regulatory body to ensure you follow their correct process.  If you have completed a Canadian nursing program and have met the SRNA requirements, you can:
• apply to write the NCLEX–RN® in Saskatchewan;
• apply to write the NCLEX-RN® and obtain a Graduate Nurse licence provided you have employment in Saskatchewan 
• apply for RN licensure in Saskatchewan.
Please contact us for questions about the NCLEX-RN® requirements at 


You may apply for the exam only after you receive a decision letter (letter of eligibility) from SRNA indicating that you are eligible to apply for the exam. When you receive that decision letter, SRNA will share the applications for the NCLEX-RN® and Graduate Nurse (GN) licence. 


We recognize all passing NCLEX-RN® results back to 1982. If you have already passed the NCLEX-RN®, you will not be required to take the exam again.  If you have previously submitted your result to the National Nursing Assessment Service (NNAS), you do not have to re-submit your results to SRNA. 
NOTE: Please remember that passing the registration exam is only one requirement for registration and licensure.  Meeting this requirement alone does not enable you to practice in Saskatchewan.
