CXC managed nursing exams set for October 2014

CARICOM Secretariat, Turkeyen, Greater Georgetown, Guyana)     Representatives of National Nursing Councils of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) and the Caribbean Examinations Council (CXC) met recently in Barbados to complete the final review of the process to launch the CXC managed Regional Examination for Nurse Registration (RENR) in October 2014.

With the recent growth of training opportunities in the field, nursing stakeholders were of the view that the existing organisation of the examination required strengthening for long term sustainability. The relevant technical aspects of examination will continue to be supported by nursing experts but its overall administration will be the responsibility of CXC given their experience in the administration of examinations. 

The examination is recognized by international nurse registration bodies and is the standard criterion for obtaining employment in nursing in many Member States. The meeting was facilitated by the CARICOM Secretariat and the Pan American Health Organisation (PAHO).
