Candidates will be required to present one form of acceptable identification at the test center. If candidates arrive at the test center without acceptable identification, they will be turned away and required to reregister and pay another exam fee. If candidates paid the additional international scheduling fee, that will be forfeited as well.
All forms of identification must be valid and meet the following requirements:
Due to U.S. trade restrictions, candidates living in a sanctioned country aren’t allowed to take the NCLEX. This is a federal requirement by The Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) of the U.S. Department of Treasury.
Candidates using a passport from a sanctioned country as identification must also present proof of residency (government issued identification) from a non-sanctioned country to take the NCLEX.
If the name that the candidate registered with is different from the name on their identification, they must bring a marriage license, divorce decree or court action legal name change document to the test center on the day of the test.
All documents must contain the name change in Roman characters and be the original copies. Candidates wishing to make a legal name change, address change or email address change must contact their nursing regulatory body (NRB). This cannot be done at the test center.
