Nurses in Africa who plan to sit for the US Nurse Licensure Exam will no longer have to spend their entire life savings on flight tickets to India and Philippines as Pearson Vue has approved the take off of NCLEX Exam in South Africa beginning from January 2020.

This was disclosed on Friday by Facebook user Nomso Opara in a post which had since gone viral on various social media platform.

Below is a copy of her post as sighted by Nursesarena:


So, this past January, I was shocked to learn that African Nurses have to travel to Asia ( Phillipines or India) to take USA NCLEX (Board exam). I could not believe that these nurses were subjected to such risk just to take an exam for greener pastures. I did some research and found out that Pearson Vue is responsible for setting up NCLEX testing centers. I tried contacting them, all to no avail. Well, three weeks ago, while attending a conference in Phoenix Arizona, I ran into a Person Vue senior staff, we conversed for a few minutes and I was able to present my case for African nurses. After our little chat, we exchanged business cards. Surprisingly, she reached out to me a few days later. She promised to investigate the need for a Center in Africa. Later that week, she emailed me again and requested for some data to validate my request. Luckily, I was able to provide her with some valid information. We exchanged a few emails and had few phone conversations. To my greatest surprise, I received an email this morning from this wonderful woman, stating that she presented my case to Pearson Vue and the National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) executives and that my request to have a Center in Africa has been granted and will be in effect from January 2020. I couldn't hold back tears. Who could have believed that something of this magnitude would be realized through little me. Thank you so much to you, my wonderful lady from Pearson Vue, Pearson Vue and NCSBN. Congratulations to African Nurses , You guys can take your USA Board in African from January 2020! To say that I'm humbled is an understatement. It can only be God!! I always fight for causes I believe in and hope you do too. And NO, there is nothing in this for me , it is all to mitigate risk for African nurses!!

You do not know what God is up to. You may feel overlooked, and nobody is giving you credit. Do not worry. God knows how to promote you out of season.
