This checklist will assist you as you plan your program of study. It specifies the coursework that must be completed before you are permitted to take the NCLEX, the RN licensure examination.
If a student wishes to request a waiver for any of the courses required before the NCLEX, a petition must be submitted to the Nursing Graduate Studies Committee. This request should be discussed with your advisor prior to submission. The petition should include a statement of the rationale for the waiver, a transcript from the institution where the course was completed and a syllabus or equivalent document so that the Nursing Graduate Studies Committee can certify that the required elements of the course are present. See Request to Waive a Course in the Petition section.
