Ontario Make Changes to NCLEX-RN policy, You can now Attempt Exam Many Times by Idowu Olabode : December 22, 2016, 12:54:09 AM
The Ontario government has approved changes to the registration regulation under the Nursing Act, 1991. One outcome of these changes is that Registered Nurse (RN) applicants now have no limit to the number of times they can write the entry-to-practice exam, NCLEX-RN.

Before the College can implement these changes, we must first complete the necessary adjustments to our information systems. We will finalize this work by January 9, 2017, at which time we will be able to process new applications under the revised regulations.  Also by this date, we will be contacting all those who are directly impacted by the exam policy changes, including current applicants and RN applicants who recently failed the exam three times to advise them of next steps. Please allow until after January 9, 2017 before contacting the College.  Further information will be posted on CNO.org when it is available.

A summary of the changes can be found in the June 2016 issue of The Standard

No limits to NCLEX-RN exam writes


With this regulation change in place, RN applicants now have no limit on the number of times they can write the NCLEX-RN exam until they pass. Previously, applicants were limited to three attempts.

Passing the exam is one of a set of requirements an RN applicant must meet in order to practise nursing in Ontario. In addition to entry requirements, members are required to maintain nursing competence and adhere to nursing standards. Together these mechanisms help to ensure nurses practice safely initially and throughout their careers.

The number of writes remains unchanged for all other exams that are part of the application process for registering to practise as a nurse in Ontario. The College limits applicants to three attempts on other entry exams because, unlike the NCLEX-RN, those exams are composed of a set of questions administered to all applicants. As a result, a writer’s familiarity with the exam content increases with each attempt. The NCLEX-RN exam is developed and administered differently than the other exams that have been approved by Council. For example, each person who writes the NCLEX-RN exam has a different set of questions. Unlike some other exams, there is no risk of memorizing content – the NCLEX-RN exam system knows when someone is rewriting the exam and generates a new set of questions.  Regardless of the number of writes, the only way a person will be successful on the exam is if they are able to show they have the competence to practise safely as an entry-level RN.

All relevant information will be updated on the website by January 9.

Removal of “in Ontario” from the declaration of practice

The registration regulation changes also included the removal of “in Ontario” from the declaration of practice requirements.  This change has been captured in the current renewal cycle.

This is unbelievable news. My daughter too and I was getting ready to right the second time and she graduated honors University of Windsor. The stress involved with only having 3 limited attempts at this exam and the fear that your Bachelor of Science degree will go down the tubes if you fail 3 times was absolutely ridiculous. I'm so glad that Ontario's become the fifth province to give unlimited chances for the RN NCLEX exam. My daughter was so happy she was crying and I think it's fair based on how the exam is designed. It is no way like the old nursing exam that was given before the NCLEX came into existence in Canada. Happy Days and what a Christmas gift

Nclex unlimited attempts in Ontario? Wow this is the best parting gift  for the year 2016. The list of provinces that allow nclex unlimited attempts keeps growing. The following provinces now have NCLEX-RN attempts  unlimited policy:

1. Alberta
2. Newfoundland and Labrador
3. New Brunswick
4. Nova Scotia
5. Ontario
6. Others to follow soon and it becomes National
