About this review course:
The NCLEX exam can be a frightening moment in any nursing student’s career. Long hours of study, lecture, and clinicals have been finished and now comes the moment to take the big test.
This knowledge-based AND strategies-based course is designed to prepare the registered and practical nurse student to take the NCLEX exam and be successful. It is also designed as a preparation course for the HESI if a college requires the student to take this as an exit exam. The segments cover all aspects of disease conditions and pathology, pharmacology, lab analysis, clinical correlation, and critical thinking needed to excel and pass! In addition, test-taking strategies and review questions are incorporated throughout to help find the most correct answer.
The extensive 400-plus page text gives a comprehensive review of all aspects covered in the course and provides an invaluable study packet in addition to other resources the student will be using to prepare for the exam. Throughout the text are “bolded” drugs, labs, assessments, and facts the student should focus on for the exam.
When a student takes a “live” course, it is offered over 3 full days. The on-line program is a total of 53 segments of approximately 30 minutes each to make the course manageable for the student. Each segment contains the lecture in full HD videos to help the student “see” pathophysiology, assessment abnormalities, and diagnostic tests AND questions to reinforce the knowledge covered and test-taking hints. Students have access to the on-line course for a full three months after they complete their registration.
Once a student purchases this course, an e-mail will be sent to them acknowledging receipt (within 24 hours) and within 1-2 business days, a packet will be mailed to them containing the course text, registration instructions, and extra study guides and materials.
