Abstract: In this paper we show that a ring (not necessarily commutative) with identity element and without nonzero nilpotent elements is a von Neumann regular ring if every completely prime ideal is a maximal right ideal. Using this result, we show an integral extension (not necessarily commutative) without nonzero nilpotent elements of a regular ring is itself a regular ring.
