NCLEX Details

The National Council of State Boards of Nursing, NCSBN research states test results among students studying outside the United States and US educated students taking the NCLEX RN are both on the rise from 2000.

In 2000 there were a total of 71,475 US educated students and 7,506 internationally educated students taking the NCLEX RN. International students made up only 10.5% of the students sitting for the exam.

Although the number of nursing students increased significantly in 2007, it is not meeting the needs of the demands. An aging population, population explosion, and nurses performing the tasks that were traditionally performed by doctors are causing a serious demand for nurses.

The demand for nurses in the US is being answered by students in other countries. Many US Citizens are arguing that there are citizens with education and experience who want a job in the computer science field and issuing more work visas will only increase unemployment in the US. Will this be the same for the nursing industry? In 2007 there were 119,579 United States educated students and 33,768 internationally educated students taking for the NCLEX RN test. This is a bit more than 28% of all nursing students, which are taking this exam.

The increase in international students could be as a result of the NCSBN opening three new test sites outside the United States. In just seven years the percentage of international students has risen 17.5%

Students educated outside the United States are keen to the demand for nurses in North America and know that educating themselves may be their opportunity to obtain a work visa and possible permanent residency in the United States and may garner them a life of a greater quality of living and freedom from oppression.

How well are US educated students performing compared to their internationally educated counterparts? Last year, there were 119,579 US educated nursing students taking the NCLEX RN. 85.5% of them passed. Only 52% of the 33,768 internationally educated

How about the students who did not pass the NCLEX RN Test? In 2007 there were a total of 26,411 students retaking the exam. These were US educated students repeating the test. Since this is obviously more than 14.5%

Many students utilize the audios to prepare for the test, but a few students have thought ahead and use it to learn the class material prior to starting the class.

Students around the world find it difficult to make time to study. NCLEX review materials on audio make it easier to review while performing other activities such as driving or going to the gym.
