NCLEX Testing Center in the Philippines

The National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) is also given in a testing center in Manila, Philippines starting August 2007.

NCLEX is the nursing board exam for aspiring nurses in the United States. It is a computer adaptive test that assesses the competencies of nurses for US practice. The exam is being administered by Pearson Professional Testing.

In August 2007, NCSBN (the regulating body for state boards of nursing in US) approved the Philippines as one of the many testing locations worldwide.

“As the NCSBN continues to expand internationally, we are pleased to be able to offer nursing candidates in the Philippines the most consistent and secure testing experience possible,” said Robert Whelan, president of Pearson VUE.

Actually, the NCLEX testing center in the Philippines is located Makati. Here’s the address:

  1. Hi, I am currently applying for a licensure in NY. I am now at the stage where I have to wait for NYSED’s reply if I am eligible to take NCLEX test. I received an email last Oct 2015 from CGFNS informing me that all my application papers were verified and sent to NYSED. Is there a way to follow up my application with NYSED? I think there is a delay in the processing and I feel like there’s nothing I can do but to wait without knowing if I might be lacking some requirements or if I sent the wrong one. Pls. Help. Thanks

  3. Hello my name is girlie currently residing Barcelona Spain and I want to know the schedule or the dates of exams every year. So that I can schedule my flight there in the Philippines and then I have time to review there. Thank you and I ‘m waiting for your answer immediately.

  4. They don’t usually require you to pass pnle if you apply for nclex but every state in the US has different requirements as for nevada(where i applied) they don’t require it. They also dont have any specific testing date. You can choose your own testing date depending on your convinience at the end of the application once all requirements are approved and submitted. Hope this helps.✌️

  8. Hi I passed the NCLEX for Calif on Dec. 2008. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to work as nurse in the US since then because of retrogression.
