Varsity Tutors offers an Austin NCLEX course designed to help you have a more organized and convenient way to study for the test. Preparing for a grueling exam like the NCLEX will demand long hours of studying and self-discipline. But where do you start and what materials should you review? Many aspiring nurses who are studying at the University of Texas - Austin or St. David's School of Nursing at Texas State University are also looking for more efficient and cost-effective ways for them to do their NCLEX review. Fortunately, the Austin NCLEX prep course can be an excellent alternative to traditional NCLEX test prep courses. In the course, you can complete your review online and still get access to live lectures by experienced and knowledgeable instructors.
What are some of the topics an Austin NCLEX class can cover?
The NCLEX or National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses is a test that determines whether an individual is ready to start work as an entry-level nurse. It is a computer-adaptive test - every time you answer a question, the computer re-estimates your ability based on your previous answers. Thus, the number and level of difficulty of the succeeding questions can vary with each test taker. The moment your competency level has been assessed, the questions will stop. This means you can pass or fail within a range of questions during the exam.
Candidates either take the NCLEX-RN for registered nurses or the NCLEX-PN for practical/vocational nurses. The content for both exams focus on your knowledge and skills in meeting the needs of patients and has four major categories: Physiological Integrity, Psychosocial Integrity, Health Promotion and Maintenance, and Safe and Effective Care Environment. There are also subsections that vary depending on whether you're taking the RN or PN test. For example, the Safe and Effective Care Environment for PNs will have a subsection for Coordinated Care, while the subsection for RNs will be on Management of Care. Studying with your experienced Austin NCLEX class instructor can have a positive impact on your skills as you can learn tips on how to answer different question types in the test and learn some effective ways to approach a computer-adaptive test like the NCLEX.
What are the advantages of enrolling in an Austin NCLEX course?
Studying using a well-organized curriculum can help you have a more efficient and focused review. You can see the big picture and keep track of your progress with every topic you cover in class. If you have questions about certain nursing concepts or procedures, you can easily consult with your instructor either in class or by requesting a one-on-one meeting. This approach can help you address your difficulties faster compared to doing your own research online or reading through several textbooks and materials about the subject.
If you are worried about how you can fit your NCLEX review in your hectic schedule, you will be happy to know that there are many course times to choose from since the course is offered entirely online. We have morning, afternoon, and evening courses, and courses on weekdays and weekends. All you need is an internet connection and you can already participate in the review. There's no need to set aside extra hours for traveling, which means you can invest the time you save on commuting to doing actual NCLEX study at home.
All your classes will also be conducted live in our virtual classroom using video chat and an online whiteboard. Your instructor and other aspiring RNs and PNs will be there joining the discussion, so you can have an interactive study just like how you'd do it in a regular, physical classroom. You can work on practice questions together in a group and you can get immediate answers from your instructor when you ask questions about nursing concepts or procedures. Studying with a group has shown to help students learn concepts faster, mitigate procrastination, and help them gain new insights about topics through the perspectives of other students in the class.
