To become an RN, an individual will need to take NCLEX-RN and to become a PN, individuals need to pass the NCLEX-PN. There are eligibility requirements for NCLEX exams, so it is best to check you meet these criteria before registering for the exam. To help you feel confident before taking the exam, NCLEX practice tests can support your preparation.
