NNI along with Mexconex Partner developed the MEFLSM program with the goal of providing Mexican nurses with an opportunity to become bilingual / bicultural caregivers capable of successfully communicating in English in a medical environment.  Completing NNI’s MEFLSM program allows participants to explore multiple job opportunities both in Mexico and anywhere in the world. MEFLSM also sets the basis for all of NNI’s Core Programs.

NNI’s comprehensive MEFLSM  program module is meant to be completed over the course of two semesters.  MEFLSM  program is based on one and a half hours per day / five days per week of in class room instruction.

NNI’s MEFLSM is a proprietary program unique in Mexico and Latin America. The intensive daily program leads to exponential improvement reinforced by a cyclical learning model. Learning activities are based on Gardner’s Multiple Intelligences Theory. NNI’s MEFLSM program combines aspects of both core language skills and medical concepts with critical thinking skills.
