We will notify you of your exam results and any outstanding requirements for registration. If you have met all requirements and have provisional registration, your provisional registration will automatically be converted to "practising -registered nurse" registration. This can be verified online using the
nurse verification tool instantly.
You can continue working on provisional registration after one exam fail. You’ll be eligible to write the exam again in
45 days from the date of the first attempt. It is your responsibility to inform all of your
current or prospective employers of your unsuccessful exam result and updated provisional registration conditions.
After applying to write the exam for a second time, you must provide employer contact information to CRNBC before receiving the Authorization to Test needed to schedule your next exam date.
If you do not currently hold provisional registration or if you intend to add additional employers to your provisional registration and you have failed the exam one time:
Check the CRNBC website to see if any changes have been made regarding provisional registration.
If you fail the exam a second time, you are
no longer eligible for provisional registration and will not be considered for registration until you pass the exam.

Note: If you apply for your
third attempt at the NCLEX while still holding provisional registration, you
will not receive the Authorization to Test (ATT) until your provisional
registration has expired.
