Abstract: Greater numbers of students who speak English as an additional language (EAL) are attracted to the nursing profession. However, there are differences between EAL nursing students and those for whom English is a first language. This presents several unique challenges to the nursing faculty, who need to meet the needs of these students and promote their success. The goal of this article is to comprehensively explore the different strategies that support NCLEX-style test taking which is one of the most challenging issues for EAL nursing students.

Keywords: English as an additional language (EAL), English as a second language (ESL), testing, NCLEX, student success
