MedPro International Team Member Spotlight: Malinie Roopchan, NCLEX Team Lead

A native of Trinidad and Tobago, Malinie Roopchan credits her love of education and nursing as to influencing her career path. She earned a bachelor’s degree in nursing from Florida International University, while also earning International Honor Society of Nursing accolades in being inducted to the Sigma Theta Tau International society. She also has a master’s degree in education from Nova Southeastern University, where she graduated with a 4.0 GPA and was a staple on both the Chancellor’s and Dean’s list(s).

As a member of both the Hospice & Palliative Nurses Association (HPNA) and American Nurses Association (ANA), Roopchan is an ideal National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) instructor in helping guide foreign-educated nurses to succeed and achieve their ‘American Dream’.

“The most-rewarding part in being an instructor is preparing MedPro Explorers to take the NCLEX,” said Roopchan. “Having first-hand experience, I understand the anxieties associated, as well as the excitement of passing it. MedPro International offers many unique opportunities, which otherwise would be impossible for healthcare professionals in their homeland. I’m proud to work for an organization that provides such amazing possibilities!”

Her role requires her to not only be an instructor, but also as a counselor. The balance of the two roles is key when guiding Explorers along the path of passing the NCLEX. As an instructor, she sets guidelines for what is expected to pass the exam, while providing test-taking strategies and having anywhere between 50-75 practice questions at the ready, per day. The other end of the spectrum, as a counselor, she offers them advice in staying motivated and focused to successfully garner a U.S. license.

“I am regularly creating new courses and modifying nursing content to reflect clinical updates. I review their progress and monitor their course activity. I also present a general orientation 1-2 times a week for those who are new to the program, as part of an RN review introduction,” said Roopchan. “I collaborate with my local team, as well as my team in the Philippines, to ensure we are sharing best practices and proper standardized processes. All the while, I answer any of their questions and address any concerns, regardless of the time zone. My day is never typical, but that is what makes it so interesting!”
