National Council Licensing Examination for RN

Grad Entry students may take the NCLEX to become a registered nurse when all required pre-licensure nursing courses have been completed at the end of the fifth semester or session of full-time study.  Passing the exam results in licensure in Ohio.  Applications for endorsement licensure in other states can be made to those states’ Boards of Nursing; however, some states may not endorse the license until M.S. in Nursing requirements are completed.
