Relias testing is a tool used to assess core clinical, situational, and behavioral competencies for nurses. There are two types of Relias exams you will need to complete, which are done at different stages.
After you submit an application for our team to review, you will receive an email directly from Relias notifying you that this checklist has been assigned. When you receive this email, it will contain a link to complete a Relias checklist or exam.
If you are already logged into Nomad and then click the link, you will be redirected to your Relias account to complete your checklist or exam. Please note that your Nomad credentials will be your Relias credentials. As long as you are logged into Nomad, you will be logged into Relias. If you are not logged into Nomad when you click this link, you will be directed first to Nomad to log in to your Nomad account. Log in with your Nomad credentials, and you will then be redirected to Relias to complete your checklist or exam. Please note that you can also access your Relias Checklist by logging into your account, click "Applications" on the top right and then click the orange bar that says, "Your actions needed" underneath your application. There should be a button for you to press that reads, "Complete Skills Checklist", which will then take you to your Checklist.
It will take you directly to the self assessment you must complete for the position. Once you’ve completed your Relias Checklist, you will be given a score. A score of 2.7 (out of 4.0) or above is considered proficient, and receiving a lower score will prohibit you from applying for a job in that specialty for the next 6 months. Once you complete a Relias checklist, it can be used as part of your future applications to the same specialty for the next 12 months. If you’ve already completed your checklist with another agency, feel free to email yours to and we can upload it to your account for you.
If you have signed a contract with us and are now in the credentialing process, you will be sent a few Relias assessments and you will log into these assessments the same way you logged into the Checklist, i.e. with your Nomad credentials. For these tests, you will need to score 80% or above to successfully complete credentialing and start your assignment. You will only receive two attempts to fill out a Relias Exam, and if you do not meet the proficient score, your assignment will be cancelled. You will not be allowed to apply for or work for jobs in that specialty for the next 6 months through our platform. After that time, you may re-apply for jobs in that specialty on Nomad. Similar to the checklists, if you have completed the assessments in the past 12 months, they can be used for future applications. Go ahead and send them to if you have them!
