Candidates Outside the United States

Candidates who received their nursing education or nursing license outside of the United States, its territories, or Canada must have their education and licensure evaluated for U.S. equivalency by a foreign credential evaluation service. The license evaluation must accompany the application form, or the candidate will be considered ineligible and will not be permitted to take the test.

For information on the evaluation service, please contact one of the organizations below. Please note that this is a lengthy process and should be initiated well before the application deadline.
