dear [address as sir or madam]:
as you are aware, as of july 23, 2001, the nursing shortage response act of 2001 was introduced in the house of representatives [h. r. 2594] as was the need act [h.r.3020] which was also introduced to the senate [s.721].
i am writing you today on behalf of the nursing profession. as you know there is a shortage of nurses in the united states today and the problem will only grow to be worse in the years to come. with the number of new nurses getting state licenses barely rising (http://www.ncsbn.org/pdfs/nclex_stats_fact_sheet.pdf) and demand for nurses soaring because of an aging population and the popularity of home health care — the labor department projects a shortage of 450,000 nurses in just seven years.
the nclex is the exam that all nurses must pass to be able to practice in the united states. the persons that are responsible for this exam are the board of nursing in each state where the potential nurse wants to get his/her license to practice and thepearson vue / many testing sites in michigan 5601 green valley drive bloomington, mn 55437-1099 usa ([color=#333333]866) 49-nclex (866) 496-2539 http://www.pearsonvue.com and chauncey group international, ltd 664 rosedale road princeton, nj 08540-2218 phone: 609 720 6500 fax: 609 720 6550. in order for a future nurse to take the exam, they must pay a fee to the board of nursing in the state in which they wish practice and a fee to thepearson and chauncey group. if an individual does not pass, they pay the entire fee again. this individual keeps paying the entire fee until they pass. at present, the fee to take the exam is in the range of $220 - $250 between paying the board of nursing and the chauncey group and pearson vue.
today, i am writing you with growing concern that the failure rate for the nclex keeps rising. granted the nclex administrators will say that they raised the passing standards and it is logical that one will have more failures. yes, while this fact may be true, i wonder as to the intentions of the pearson vue and chauncey group and the board of nursing. are their intentions to raise the standards of the nclex passing rate at a time of such a critical nursing shortage meeting a need or taking advantage of a situation? we have no choice as graduate nurses or foreign trained nurses but to take this exam and they understand this. to pay a complete fee each time to retake the exam, many future nurses run out of funds or get so discouraged, they give up. now, the education they received in college to be a nurse means nothing. the diploma earned is no more than a piece of paper and they are stuck paying back the student loans. this fact definitely contributes to the nursing shortage.
naturally, with the united states government trying to recruit nurses into the field, this would be an opportunity for the pearson vue and chauncey group and the board of nursing to capitalize on such a situation and i believe it is one that is worth an investigation.
thank you so much for your time concerning this matter. i am sure i will hear from you as soon as possible concerning this matter.
