Nurse Education Application Process

NCLEX-CAT Application Process

An applicant must:

  1. Be a graduate of a school approved by the Board of Registration in Nursing
  2. Pay the application fee
  3. Declare a misdemeanor or felony conviction
  4. C.O.R.I (Criminal Offender Record Information) checks will be done on all NCLEX applicants. Unsatisfactory C.O.R.I status will prohibit participation in clinical experience. Therefore, program requirements cannot be completed.

If you have ever been convicted of a misdemeanor or a felony in a court of law; your record will be subject to review by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Board of Registration in Nursing upon application for the registered nurse licensure examination.
