Varsity Tutors is the only name you need to know if you're looking for a comprehensive Denver NCLEX prep course to help you pursue your academic and professional goals. The National Council of State Boards of Nursing, Inc. (NCSBN) offers two standardized exams (the NCLEX-RN and NCLEX-PN) to help Nursing Regulatory Bodies assess the competency of prospective Registered Nurses (RN) and Licensed Practical/Vocational Nurses (PN).
You're probably already familiar with the rigors of a nursing curriculum from your studies at a local college such as the University of Colorado Denver or Regis University, so you won't be surprised to learn that these exams can be tough. Taking a Denver NCLEX class gives you a set time each week to review not only the academic concepts likely to appear on your exam, but also test-taking strategies you can use on exam day. Continue reading to learn more about the benefits of studying with the guidance of a professional NCLEX instructor.
What subjects can I review in a Denver NCLEX course?
Both the NCLEX-RN and NCLEX-PN cover similar topics (infection control, health maintenance, pharmacological therapies, keeping patients as comfortable as possible, etc.), but there are a couple of topics unique to one exam or the other. For example, Registered Nurses need to understand how to manage care, while Practical Nurses go over coordinated care instead. Your Denver NCLEX class instructor can provide real-world examples of seemingly abstract concepts, helping you feel as though you're learning useful information instead of simply studying for a standardized test.
You can also review the structure of the exam with your instructor. Both NCLEX exams utilize Computer-Adaptive Testing, or CAT, which means that the computer selects your next question according to how you fared on the previous ones. You continue answering questions until the system is ready to assign you a score, which can take anywhere from 75 to 265 items on the NCLEX-RN and 85 to 205 questions on the NCLEX-PN. Both tests are also timed (six hours for the NCLEX-RN, five for the NCLEX-PN), but you may not need all of it, depending on the number of questions you end up answering.
What advantages does a Denver NCLEX course provide?
Every class Varsity Tutors provides consists of a knowledgeable instructor meeting with a class of students online through our exclusive Live Learning Platform. Each teacher undergoes an extensive vetting process before they're allowed to teach a class, so you can trust all of the information you receive during sessions as accurate and up-to-date.
Working on our Live Learning Platform also ensures that you don't need to worry about a commute to attend a session. It's mobile-friendly, so you can take out your favorite device at a local coffee shop, restaurant, or even your own home and attend a class. You don't need to be concerned with the quality of your study experience either, as powerful features like video chat functionality and a virtual whiteboard make you feel as though you're attending class in person.
You can also see and hear your classmates on our platform, allowing everyone to work together as they pursue success. For instance, let's say that you're having a hard time remembering all of the ways a nurse can reduce the risk factors a patient is exposed to. Hearing your classmates discuss the topic may make it easier for you to retain the information. Similarly, you can explain a challenging concept to one of your new friends to help them out while simultaneously reinforcing your own knowledge of the material. Many students find a collaborative learning environment preferable to studying on their own, so take advantage of having other students in the virtual classroom at every opportunity.
Working in a group also helps you get great value for your money. If you ever feel like you may need individualized attention to overcome a particular learning obstacle, you can also arrange extra help sessions with your instructor whenever you like for added flexibility.
Varsity Tutors also tries to make attending a course as convenient as it can be. We offer multiple course sessions concurrently, including two- and four-week options to accommodate even the busiest of students. New courses also start up on a monthly basis, so you don't need to wait too long before getting started.
