Visit the Exam Results page for all the information.
If you have provisional registration and have met all other registration requirements, your provisional registration will be automatically converted to full registration. If you have any outstanding requirements for registration, we will notify you by email.
If you do not have provisional registration, but have met all other registration requirements, you will need to pay the registration fees for full practising registration or for non-practising registration.
After you passed the NCLEX and met all of the registration requirements, you have 90 days to finalize your registration. If you don't plan to work right away, you can apply for non-practising registration.
If you don’t plan to work in B.C., you are not required to complete your registration in B.C.
However, we recommend that you complete the registration process in B.C.:
in case you return to B.C. to work
to prevent delays when registering elsewhere. Many jurisdictions require proof of initial (original) registration in the province/territory where you were educated. If you do not finalize your registration, you will need to request a letter of your exam result be sent to the province/territory where you would like to register.
You can go to the BCCNM Nurse Verification page. The verification page will list the provisional registration conditions for individual registrants.
NCLEX results are provided only to the BCCNM applicant.
