Nursing Jurisprudence Exam

The Board's current newsletter lists the following information about the upcoming Jurisprudence Exam:

The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) will begin administering the Nursing Jurisprudence Examination (NJE) to all initial nursing licensure applicants by examination and endorsement who apply on or after September 1, 2008. A passing score on the NJE will be a new licensure requirement for LVN and RN students seeking licensure through the applicable NCLEX examination, as well as licensed nurses (including advanced practice nurses) seeking licensure by endorsement from out-of-state and from foreign countries. The NJE will be psychometrically validated and will consist of a minimum of 50 multiple-choice questions. The examination will be administered on-line, and accessible from most Internet-capable computers with an applicant’s unique sign-on code. Applicants who fail the jurisprudence exam will be allowed to retest.
