NCLEX Score Transfers

The NCLEX score transfer process allows candidates who have passed the NCLEX, but are not yet licensed in the jurisdiction that made them eligible, to transfer their score to another jurisdiction via NCSBN. The NRB, who initially made the candidate eligible, will need to provide the exams operations team (via email to with a formal letter, from the candidate, requesting the transfer. This letter should include candidate identification information and contain the candidate’s signature (a sample template is available from NCSBN upon request).

NCSBN will contact the desired jurisdiction of licensure to confirm acceptance of the score transfer. Upon approval, NCSBN will work with Pearson VUE to transfer the candidate’s NCLEX record, in NCLEX Administration, and confirm the successful score transfer to both jurisdictions.

Additional information on the Re-entry and Score Transfer processes can be found in Chapters 2 and 5 respectively of the NCLEX Member Board Manual and NCLEX Administration Manual.
