THE NCLEX-RN & NCLEX-PN EXAMINATION
The National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN & NCLEX-PN exam) is designed to determine if it’s safe for you to begin practice as an entry-level nurse in the U.S. The NCLEX-RN® exam is not a knowledge based exam, instead it is application-based.
With NCLEX – style practice questions, essential nursing content organized according to the test plans and reinforcement activities, you’ll be well on your way to success.
The NCLEX-RN exam is organized according to the framework, “Meeting Client Needs.” There are four major categories and eight subcategories. Many nursing programs are based on the medical model where students take separate medical, surgical, pediatric, psychiatric, and obstetric classes. However, on the NCLEX-RN exam, all of the content is integrated.
- Identify knowledge deficits in nursing content areas and test-taking skills appropriate to the NCLEX-RN.
- Remediate knowledge deficits through participation in class sessions and individual work preparation.
- Participate in group and individual investigation of NLEX-RN style questions designed to reinforce integration of nursing knowledge and concepts from different fields, awareness of ethical and legal guidelines, proficiency in teaching/learning methods and potential for safe beginning nursing practice.
Course content will focus on review of the most current nursing content, test approaches, and other topic areas designed to achieve success on the NCLEX, as well as preparation for entry level professional nursing practice. (Total of 30 hours)
