About this course:
A student’s journey through nursing school is often filled with extensive hours of classroom preparation, studying, writing care plans, and preparing for clinical experiences.
The Journey through Successful NCLEX Preparation course is designed to assist the second-year nursing student to develop test-taking skills when looking at NCLEX style questions. The course offers a multitude of test-taking strategies to improve a student’s critical reading and critical thinking skills when looking at questions. By utilizing these strategies, students will improve their likelihood of passing nursing school and ultimately the NCLEX examination. The strategies and content in this course are mirrored and reinforced again in The Pearls for NCLEX Review available to the student as a part of their comprehensive preparation for NCLEX success.
