COVID-19 Affecting NCLEX and IELTS Testing

With the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic around the world, many NCLEX and IELTS testing centers globally have suspended testing.

We understand this is a very stressful and difficult time and we want to be transparent with our candidates by providing the latest NCLEX and IELTS testing updates.


As concerns related to the COVID-19 continue, the National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) is working with the NCLEX testing vendor, Pearson VUE, to ensure the safety of the NCLEX testing candidates. If your region/country is not on this list, NCLEX testing services are continuing as normal. For any questions or concerns, contact NCSBN at nclexinfo@ncsbn.org.


The IELTS Partners are committed to protecting the health of our test takers, while also trying to minimize disruption to life-changing opportunities for international migration. Testing is currently suspended in the following locations on this page. It is possible that tests in other locations may be suspended at short notice.
