USA Employment & Immigration for Nurses


The NCLEX-RN is designed to make sure that each nurse has the knowledge to practice safely at a minimum of an entry-level registered nurse. Many nursing schools in other countries have examinations that are knowledge-based, testing you on the facts you have learned. The NCLEX-RN, however, is an application-based examination.

The NCLEX-RN examination, administered via Computerized Adaptive Testing (CAT), uses standard NCLEX-RN-examination, multiple-choice questions. With CAT, each candidate's test is unique: It is assembled interactively as the individual is tested. As the candidate answers each question, the computer calculates a competence estimate based on all earlier answers. CAT provides greater measurement efficiency, because it administers only those questions which will offer the best measurement of the candidate's competence.

All Registered Nurses will be required to pass the NCLEX-RN, which is a state licensing examination. The NCLEX is given in the US and can be taken during the first six months of employment. Effective October 1, 2002, the NCLEX is offered by the Pearson Professional Centers. Pearson has multiple testing sites in each state and also has sites in Guam, Saipan, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

CARE ORIGIN has a specially designed study program to assist nurses in passing the NCLEX. In USA, each state nursing board acts independently. It has its own procedures and follows its own laws. CARE ORIGIN will give you complete guidelines on appearing and successfully passing the NCLEX.

The exam will also focus on your knowledge about the process of nursing, the way you communicate with the patients, and your awareness of the American culture. It will also test your ability to do proper documentation, the self care you take while treating the patients and your ability to learn.

To appear for the exam, you have to fix a date and time with NCSBN. The test is available all year, 15 hours a day, six days a week. The duration for each exam is 5 hours.

All your documents will be filed on your behalf by CARE ORIGIN.

CARE ORIGIN will obtain your hall ticket on your behalf and intimate to you the arrangements for appearing for the test. At the end of the five hour test, you will know whether you have passed the exam or failed it. However, your result will not be announced immediately. The state nursing board will inform the result in 2-4 weeks from date of exam.

Licensure requirements vary
between states. Generally, however, most states require that the nurse demonstrate eligibility and preparedness for the Nurse Comprehensive Licensure Exam (NCLEX) by presenting CGFNS certification, copies of foreign academic credentials, an education/credentials evaluation and a proficiency of English, for example TOEFL exam results. And, some states permit the nurse to take the NCLEX without the CGFNS.

You can sit for the NCLEX examination an unlimited amount of times however if you do not pass it you must wait 90 days before retaking and pay new fees. If you fail the NCLEX this can have some bearing on an interim license in some states.

Note: There is no blanket reciprocity from state to state regarding the NCLEX; each state has different licensing requirements.
