Because you were licensed under one name, that name legally changed, even if it contains elements of your old name. You were denied entrance to a state licensing exam for security purposes. I know it seems unfair and may have been a huge hassle, but the exam proctors are under strict instructions to uniformly apply screening for making sure names match exactly. They do not have the resources to confirm your identity without your assistance. If this measure was not in place, someone who is unauthorized would be able to take the exam and potentially pass, causing the public to be treated by an individual who did not demonstrate minimal competence in nursing. This could severely injure or kill a member of the public, so such a regulation must be abided by.
