The Canadian Nurses Association: Reflections on the NCLEX-RN through the Lens of Nursing History and Evolution

Michael J. Villeneuve, Claire Betker and Tim Guest


Decades of work by professional associations, regulators and educators have produced an ethical, reliable, robustly educated and regulated nursing workforce that enjoys high levels of respect in Canada and around the world. The officers of the Canadian Nurses Association comment here on the organization's history and changing role in regulatory policy over the past decade during the introduction of the American NCLEX-RN examination as the assessment tool for entry-to-practice for Canadian registered nurses. Facing forward, to maintain a strong, trusted nursing workforce the association remains committed to meaningful collaboration among nursing's professional, regulatory, education and union sectors.
