Please Note:

Due to high call center volume, it is recommended that you schedule your NCLEX with Pearson VUE online

Scheduling Options

You may not schedule your exam appointment until you have received an Authorization to Test (ATT). Please note, the ATT will only be sent to the email address you provided when registering.

Waiting to call to schedule an exam appointment may significantly limit the selection of dates from which you can choose to schedule. Additionally, if you wait until your ATT is close to expiring, test centers may not be able to seat you prior to its expiration. If this occurs, you will be required to reregister and pay another exam fee.

First-time test takers will be offered an appointment within 30 days of the request to schedule an appointment. Repeat candidates will be offered an appointment within 45 days. If you wish, you may decline the appointment offered and schedule later than the 30 or 45 days. If your first-choice date or time is unavailable, you will be offered an alternative as close to  their first choice as possible.
