Jan 4, 2022

Effective Jan. 4, 2022, the Regulatory Exam - Practical Nurse (REx-PN)​ is now the recognized entry-to-practice exam for practical nursing in British Columbia and Ontario. 

The launch of the REx-PN is the culmination of years of exam development by BCCNM, the College of Nurses of Ontario and the National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN). We thank our partners, and appreciate and thank stakeholders who contributed to the exam's development by providing feedback and/or participating in item writing and item review panels.
