Upon successful completion of the Associate of Science in Nursing Program at Blue Ridge Community and Technical College, graduates are eligible to apply to any state Board of Nursing to take the NCLEX- RN examination. Each state has individual requirements of applicants for licensure by examination. West Virginia law addresses application criteria for licensure in West Virginia. According to West Virginia Code §30-7-11, the West Virginia Board of Examiners for Registered Professional Nurses has the power to deny the opportunity to procure licensure if the applicant has been convicted of a felony or for any other reason specified within West Virginia Code §30-7-11. For more information, visit https://code.wvlegislature.gov/30-7-11/ and https://wvrnboard.wv.gov. Blue Ridge Community and Technical College cannot provide verification of an individual’s ability to meet licensure requirements unrelated to its educational programming.
Students who are considering an academic program that may allow them to pursue professional licensure in another state or territory are strongly encouraged to check their state’s or territory’s information and contact the appropriate licensing agency to seek information and additional guidance before beginning a program outside of their state.
Students should contact the Board of Nursing in the state they would like to be initially licensed for more specific information or may view the website to find professional nursing licensure requirements for any state and jurisdiction.
