The new 2005 NCLEX®Examination Candidate Bulletin is posted on the NCSBN web site and the Minnesota Board of Nursing web site.  Within this 2005 Candidate Bulletin, there is information regarding changes to testing center admission requirements and check-in processes.  Effective January 1, 2005 the following will be enforced at the testing centers:

  • A candidate must present one of the following acceptable forms of identification:
    • Passport
    • Drivers license
    • State/province ID card
    • National identity card
    • United States military ID
  • No other identification than that stipulated above will be accepted.  All identification must be printed in English language letters, must be unexpired (clearly stated), have a recent photograph and a signature signed in English. The printed name on the identification must match exactly the printed name on the ATT.  If the printed last (family) name on the ATT differs from the last name on the identification presented, a candidate must present an original copy of legal name change documentation (such as a marriage license or divorce degree) and the court documentation must be in English.
  • A candidate must present a valid Authorization to Test (ATT)
  • If these requirements are not met, the candidate will be turned away
