Foreign-educated nurses (FEN) who pursue bachelor's, master's, or doctoral degrees in the United States that include clinical practice preparation must successfully complete the U.S. Nursing Licensure Exam (NCLEX). Nurses who plan to seek employment in the United States must pass the NCLEX prior to licensure.
The Regis ESL-NCLEX Prep Program is designed for nurses educated outside of the United States. It is designed to assist foreign-educated nurses in their preparation for the NLCEX and graduate nursing education in the United States. This program enables the FEN to successfully transition into professional practice as a registered nurse in the United States.
Students are conditionally admitted to the master of science in nursing program at Regis on acceptance to the ESL and NCLEX Review Program. Final admission is contingent upon successful completion of the program--including passing the NCLEX exam and demonstrating English proficiency and earning a B or better in the first two graduate courses.
The cost is $20,000, which does not include room and board, transcript evaluation, or NCLEX exam cost.
