CTS or Continental Testing Service is the accredited agency that handles applications for nursing licensure
ATT or Authorization To Test

Registration with Pearson Vue was needed before the Eligibility was issued.
So, if your CES report has been issued or, at least, when all the documents needed for the CES is already complete, you may want to register and pay the testing fee to Pearson Vue ( so that your Eligibility and your ATT can be issued.

Technically, you can register earlier with Pearson Vue since you have one year to get your Eligibility.

Once you get your ATT or Authorization To Test, you have three months (90) days to schedule your exam. The testing fee is $200, and if you're taking the NCLEX outside the US, there's an additional $150-fee.

At this point, CTS is only waiting for yout CES report, which should be ready soon. Be assured that when your CES report is ready, CTS can issue your Eligibility right away (assuming you have everything else completed, e.g. application, fees). They only want you to register with Pearson Vue to complete the entire application

Just register and create an account online with Pearson Vue. You can pay using a credit card, bank draft, or international money order.After you register and pay the $200 fee, you will be issued an ATT or Authorization to Test.

This can take from a few minutes to more than a week, depending on the response time of CTS and IDFPR. Once you get your ATT, you can call the Pearson Vue hotlines to schedule a testing date. Have your ATT and credit card ready when you call as they will need to charge the $150 at this time.



International NCLEX test-takers, including those who will take the test in the Philippines, are required to present their Authorization to Test (ATT) and their passports as proof of identification. The passport is the only form of identification accepted by Pearson Vue, which administers the NCLEX, from international applicants.
