Abstract

This article describes the experience of adopting the NCLEX-RN as an entry-to-practice exam among francophone baccalaureate nursing students in New Brunswick, Canada. The journey between 2012 and now has been difficult, and nursing leadership was necessary to inform key stakeholders regarding the inequities faced by francophone nursing students and to bring about change. Here is a description of the arduous work done by a group of concerned nurses (active and retired) to advocate for the rights of francophone nursing students.
