National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) is an independent, not-for-profit organization through which boards of nursing act and counsel together on matters of common interest and concern affecting public health, safety and welfare, including the development of nursing licensure examinations (the NCLEX-RN and NCLEX-PN).
Upon successfully completing the UCT PN Program, graduates are eligible to write the NCLEX-PN (National Council Licensure Exam for Practical Nurses) to obtain initial licensure as a Licensed Practical Nurse. UCT offers no guarantee that graduates will be eligible for licensure in states other than Massachusetts. Each state has specific nursing education requirements that must be met for an individual to become licensed in that state. The Practical Nurse Program at UCT meets all of the requirements of the Massachusetts Board of Registration in Nursing to operate a nursing education program.
