Assessing the Impact of Change in Nurse Licensing in Canada from the CRNE to the NCLEX

July 28, 2016 | By |

Recently, nursing regulatory bodies in Canada announced a new partnership agreement for the Canadian registered nurse licensure entry exam, moving the exam away from Canada to one offered by the US National Council of State Boards of Nursing effective January 2015.

No research has been directed at examining the impact of this change on key stakeholders such as educational institutions and nurses themselves. This pilot study addresses the need for an understanding of the impact of the nurse licensing process for Canadian student nursing graduates, and identification of any adjustments needed to respond to this change, in the context of effective health human resources planning and management in Canada.
