FOREIGN NCLEX RATES CONTINUE TO RISE

Rate this Entry
by Chris Musillo

The latest 2017 NCLEX statistics show that foreign-trained nurses are taking and passing NCLEX at the highest rates since the peak years of 2006-2007. Almost 10,000 foreign-trained nurses have taken and passed the NCLEX in 2017. US NCLEX pass numbers have been ticking upward since 2014, although at a much smaller rate than foreign-trained nurses

These numbers are considerably lower than the peak years of last decade. In 2006, 20,907 internationally educated RNs passed the NCLEX exam. In 2007, the volume jumped; 22,827 internationally educated nurses passed the NCLEX exam. With the onset of retrogression, 2008 saw a slight decline; 18,905 internationally educated RNs passed the exam.
