I may be wrong, if I am then i need some sort of explanation please. Over the last three years I have come in contact with dozens, maybe more, of "nurses" who don't speak a lick of English. How is this possible that they pass the nclex? When I say they don't speak English, I mean I cannot even have a basic conversation with them (hi, how are you? Do you know where the bathroom is? The simplest terms....)Please don't take this post in any racist manner because I mean no harm at all, these people I am referring to come from all different backgrounds, Hispanic, Haitian, African and I find it very hard to believe that with such limited English they were able to sit and pass the nclex. I sat through orientation today with a lady who didn't know basic fundamentals of nursing, the presenter had to explain things 2 and 3 times for her. I can accept an older nurse forgetting things but this woman told me she just passed her nclex last month. I asked her what school she went to and she told me Dade medical (lol that made me feel a little better about this situation because we all know that school is a joke, and knowing the right people anyone can graduate) but I couldn't help but to think did she pay someone to take her nclex for her? does she know someone with the test bank and memorized the answers? Because there is no way I can believe that this woman or many others I've come across took the same nclex as me and passed.
