Is the NCLEX examination for nurses the equivalent to the MCAT for doctors/physicians, and LSAT for lawyers?
No, the NCLEX exam is not the same as the M-CAT or L-SAT. The NCLEX is the exam all nursing students take after graduation, to obtain a license to practice. the L-SAT and M-CAT, are entrance exams that future doctors and lawyers take to get into medical or law school.
I hope this helps,
The NCLEX is a license exam. The MCAT and LSAT are entrance exams. You can't take the NCLEX until the end of nursing school. You take the BAR for law school and USMLE for physicians.
