Gateway to Nursing in North America
The Gateway to Nursing in North America course is for qualified Registered Adult Nurses, educated in the UK or internationally, who wish to work in the United States.
Using a variety of teaching strategies, the Florence Nightingale Faculty of Nursing & Midwifery has partnered with Kaplan Test Review to give students their best chance of successfully passing the NCLEX-RN licensure exam on their first try.
Our students learn from an individualised learning plan which guides them through core obstetrics and women’s health, paediatric and psychiatric mental health content. This 16 week course also offers the clinical experience needed for state registration.
How is the course taught?
Our students are taught in small groups where they have the opportunity to explore and develop their knowledge and skills through a series of group discussions, seminars and online modules. Participants also undertake self-directed learning, simulation and structured clinical observation placements.
What will be provided for completing the course?
Graduates will be provided:
- A transcript of theory and clinical practice.
- Access to the knowledge and skills needed in order to take the NCLEX exam as well as the clinical experience they need for state registration.
Candidates who successfully pass the NCLEX-RN exam receive:

- Connections with job placement agencies for work in the United States.
Note: it is advised applicants familarize themselves with the CGFNS International webpages and their interview process. Additionally, it should be emphasized this course includes intensive independent learning throughout the 16-week length.
