Hi! I am currently applying for RN Licensure by Exam in Nevada. I'm having troubles with the English Proficiency Requirement because I already took the TOEFL twice but failed (particularly the Speaking Section). I only got a 24 and 23 speaking scores so NSBN sent me a letter saying that I need to send them a documentation of completing an English course (ESL) before I can take another exam.
I don't know where I'm supposed to take this English course. I already called NSBN and they told me that I can choose wherever I will take this course, and no number of hours are required as long as I send them the documentation. I prefer taking it online and if possible, with a much lower cost. I've been searching the net but most ESL programs cost around $200 and above. Can anyone give me an advice on this? I also would like to know if IELTS is better than TOEFL, because I really have difficulties answering in the Speaking Section of TOEFL.
Thank you so much and I really appreciate all your help!
