NCLEX

Licensure

To work as a Registered Nurse in the United States, you must be licensed in the state in which you plan to practice. Initial licensure in a state is awarded by receiving a passing grade on the National Council License Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN?). Once you pass the NCLEX-RN and are licensed in a state, you may apply to other states through a process known as endorsement.

The NCLEX-RN

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. For more information on the NCLEX-RN visit the National Council of State Boards Web site at http://www.ncsbn.org.

Alda will assist in your preparation for the NCLEX-RN. The study program includes a self-guided home program as well as instructional sessions, in many cases. You should not take this study program lightly but complete all materials provided to ensure adequate practice.

When you are ready to take the NCLEX-RN, Alda will fly you to Saipan or Guam, where you will take the exam. Alda will also pay for your accommodations. You should bring enough money to pay for food and other incidentals.
