Students who meet educational and other standards for application for a license to practice as a registered nurse (Sect.335.046.1 RSMo) may apply to take the NCLEX-RN examination for RN licensure (4CSR 200-4.020 Missouri Code of State Regulations). There is a fee for the examination and license. Successful completion of the nursing program does not guarantee licensure. Applicants may be denied licensure in Missouri for one or any combination of causes stated in the Missouri Nursing Practice Act Sect. 335.066, 2 (1-15) RSMo. A copy of the Missouri Nursing Practice Act Sect. 335.066, 2 (1-15) RSMo is available upon request or may be found at the Missouri State Board of Nursing website: http://pr.mo.gov/nursing.asp.
