NCLEX Exams Scheduling in the Philippines opens July 13, 2007

Good news for Filipino nurses. The National Council of State Boards of Nursing, Inc. (NCSBN) will begin the National Council on Licensure Examinations (NCLEX) testing in Manila at the International Pearson Professional Center on Aug. 23, 2007.

Scheduling for examination appointments will begin on July 13, 2007.

The Manila site was chosen in February by the NCSBN Board of Directors because of the deep commitment shown by the Philippine government to ensuring a secure test center. The placement of a test site in the Philippines will allow for greater customer service to nurses without compromising the goal of safeguarding the public health, safety and welfare of patients in the U.S.
