What do I need to qualify for a Registered Nurse job in the United States?
- First of all you have to be a graduate of an accredited nursing program with an associate degree or higher in nursing.
- You must have at least 2 years of experience as a registered nurse in an acute care/tertiary hospital after graduation
- You must pass the US National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN)
- You must be fluent in English, and must have taken the International English Language Testing Systems (IELTS) with a satisfactory result
- Good attitude, good personality, hardworking, including references that can be verified is a must.
How long will it take for me to prepare to take and pass the NCLEX and start working in the United States?
Preparation for the NCLEX:
On average, it takes about 6 months to prepare to take and pass the NCLEX.
The immigration process:
The immigration process to the United States may take between 6 and 12 months depending on your country of citizenship and other factors. Some cases may take longer than 12 months.
Global Nursing Recruiters gives you a maximum of 3 months to study our NCLEX review book and take our Entry Exam. If you fail in your first attempt, you will be given an additional 2 months to prepare and retake the Entry Exam. If you fail the second time, your application will be denied.
If you pass the Entry Exam and complete your registration, you will be enrolled in our 4 months NCLEX review program. Typically, our nurses are well prepared to take the NCLEX at the end of this program.
GNR only makes arrangements for you to go and take the NCLEX when your scores in our internal examinations have met our requirement, which means that your chances of passing the NCLEX in your first attempt is very high.
This means that your own effort in studying for the NCLEX is what will determine how long it will take you to pass the NCLEX.
What happens if I fail the NCLEX in my first attempt?
GNR understands that failure is part of human nature and can occur. However, we have developed a robust review program to help our nurses become successful. We also provide a holistic support system for our nurses to help them achieve this goal. We are therefore confident that you will pass the NCLEX on your first attempt if you focus on your studies, take our review classes seriously, and follow the guidance of our instructors.
But should you fail, after following all the recommendations of GNR, we will continue to support you as you prepare to retake the NCLEX. You will however be responsible for the cost of your flight and hotel this time around.
