NCSBN Selects Philippines as New Testing Site for NCLEX

Murali Bashyam

The National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN®) has selected Manila, the capital city of the Philippines, as a new site for the administration of the NCLEX® examinations. Offered abroad since January 2005, the current international sites for NCLEX examinations are in London, England; Seoul, South Korea; Hong Kong; Sydney, Australia; Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver, Canada; Frankfurt, Germany; Mumbai, New Delhi, Hyderabad, Bangalore and Chennai, India; Mexico City, Mexico; Taipei, Taiwan; and Chiyoda-ku and Yokohama, Japan. Intended for the purposes of domestic nurse licensure in U.S. states and territories, all security policies and procedures currently used to administer the NCLEX examination domestically will be fully implemented at this new site. This is good news for nurses in the Philippines since they will not have to travel abroad to take the NCLEX exam. As more information becomes available, we will post it on this blog.
