Student NCLEX Reporting Process

Students are required to have an active Connecticut R.N. license as per YSN’s Licensure Policy. This NCLEX reporting process outlines student responsibilities with respect to reporting exam date(s) and results by set deadlines. This standardized process will allow for students to receive remediation if needed and allow YSN faculty and staff to better support students, particularly those who have not passed the NCLEX-RN.

Guidelines for Taking and Reporting NCLEX Results

  1. Students are given information in May on the NCLEX-RN testing process, including recording date of exam and reporting results.
