Licensure Eligibility

Upon receiving their degrees from the Crouse Hospital College of Nursing, graduates are eligible to take the examination for licensure as registered nurses (NCLEX-RN) in New York State or in any state where they expect to practice. All forms for licensure in New York State are available in the Registrar’s Office.

Individuals who have been charged with, or convicted of, a crime (felony or misdemeanor) may not take the licensing examination until a review of their case has been conducted by the New York State Board for Nursing. It is recommended that such individuals initiate the review process well before graduation.
