In order to register for the NCLEX RN exam, a registered nursing candidate should apply to the National Council of State Boards of Nursing for licensure eligibility. Once your eligibility has been confirmed the board will provide an Authorization to Test (ATT) number. At the same time the candidate should register with Pearson VUE, the contracted test provider.
There are three ways to register with Pearson VUE: online, by telephone, or by mail. The cost of the exam is $200 and can be paid using a credit or debit card (VISA, MasterCard, or American Express). It is also possible to pay using a money order, cashier’s check, or certified check.
ATT Validity Dates
Important. Test centres can fill up quickly. Do not wait until the ATT is going to expire shortly. If you do not take the test within the specified time you will have to reregister and pay the $200 once more
