Does anyone endorse their RN license to nevada that requires english proficiency exam? Anyone knows about the PTE exam? It said that you should have an overall score of at least 55 and individual section score of at least 50. What are the individual section? Are those the Reading, Listening, Speaking and Writing? Are the enabling skills in pte included or are they just part of scoring the for the Four sections? I am so confused. I don't know if I pass my exam or not because I got an overall score of 65 and more than 50 for each section. But there's this enabling skills that has oral fluency, pronunciation, grammar, vocabulary and written in which I got below the 50 on two of those. So, I mean they only look at the four sections or what?

Same situation here. That's what is said on ncsbn. They only mentioned the 4 skills but when I called Nevada board of nursing and they said I failed the English test because the pronunciation skill was below 50.

No I didn't. I just did some research after I talked to them. Why don't you call Nevada board and ask them about the pte enabling skills.

I actually did the moment i got the results. And i did the same thing, i researched and even called pearson. I even sent a message in pte page in fb. The person in fb pte said that institutions only take the 4 sections. So I thought everything was ok although i was bothered by the person i talked to in nevada brn. She told me everything is included. I guess I'm just in denial that I need to take the exam again.

Omg... I took my exam yesterday morning and got my result at midnight... Same dilemma here. I got 59 for overall scoring. But in that enabling skills, i got below 50 in spelling.

Does it mean i failed my exam too?

Any news? Did you retake again? Or they give considerations?

Please let me know....

Thank you.
