NCLEX in the UK
- 0Nov 16, '12 by sineadsmyth29Hi everyone, I am looking for some information. I am a UK nurse with a BSc Honors and a post grad in Diabetics. I am looking to move to America and wanted to work as a nurse. I know that its very hard to get visa's or even to get a job in the States. I have spoke to a company in the UK who state that they can offer the NCLEX exam and also help with the licensing process. I have some questions I need answered and wanted to know if any of you good people on here have had any experience with this company. Nurses4America.
1 Does anyone know this company or used them?
2 Is it worth while doing this course?
3 Is this course actually recongised in USA?
4 How hard is it to get a job in America with the NCLEX course?
5 Are there any other companies in the UK who do NCLEX?
6 Any tips on the best way about trying to get work in USA?
I know i have asked a lot of questions, but these are things i need answers to. Thanks everyone for your help.

- 1Nov 16, '12 by traumaRUs AdminAgree with above...probably not legit. NCLEX is not a course but rather the US-wide licensing exam. Many foreign-trained grads are finding that their education doesn't meet the US requirements.
Plus, as you stated, visas are at a premium because unemployment in the US is still pretty high. You will find many other foreign-grads with similar issues posting in the Immigration Forum.

And then when they give you authorization, you may apply thru Pearson-Vue and take the NCLEX. You do not have to take the test in the States. You can take it at specific international sites. Best call the Pearson-VUE agent in your EMEA region.5 Are there any other companies in the UK who do NCLEX?
Here is the website link with two methods of contact: email or telephone (blower).

Then read up on retrogression and be prepared to wait the 6 plus years once you find a employer willing to wait and file immigrant visa application for you
