Are you preparing to write the NCK examination this year? The Nursing Council of Kenya (NCK) licensure examination is scheduled for April 2023. The Council is responsible for ensuring that all nurses within its jurisdiction meet an acceptable level of competence before they begin to practice. This level of competence is measured partly by our licensing exam.

NCK Exam Dates

The licensing examination is administered through regional examination centers. It consists of 4 individual papers for basic cadres and 3 papers for other cadres. Each paper examines specific competencies expected of nurses practicing within that capacity and is administered over the course of three hours. Papers comprise multiple-choice questions, short answer questions, and long answer questions where the candidate is expected to respond to brief health-care scenarios.

We determine applicants’ eligibility to write the exam by evaluating their conduct, and academic and practical progress at the training school. Candidates are allowed a maximum of 4 resits and must satisfy the Board of Examiners for each of the papers before they are eligible to apply for enrollment/registration.
