You can enhance the process of preparing for the NCLEX-RN or NCLEX-PN with help from the Houston NCLEX course thanks to Varsity Tutors. This course offers test-taking strategies and study tips designed to help you do your best on your chosen test. If you have been studying nursing at the University of Houston, Houston Community College, or another area institution, you already have quality foundational knowledge in nursing. By enrolling in this course, you could grow that knowledge and build your confidence as you head into exam day.

What topics are covered in a Houston NCLEX prep course?

The National Council of State Boards of Nursing, Inc. (NCSBN) is responsible for developing and administering the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN) and National Council Licensure Examination for Practical Nurses (NCLEX-PN). These exams assess candidates' entry-level nursing competence and are used by the Nursing Regulatory Bodies to grant nursing registration or licensure.

A good way to understand how to prepare for either the NCLEX-RN or NCLEX-PN is to take a Houston NCLEX class at Varsity Tutors. Your instructor can familiarize you with Client Needs, which are topics that serve as the framework for both exams' test plans. Client Needs are divided into categories and subcategories and measure candidates' understanding of client health needs as well as nursing practice fundamental processes. The Safe and Effective Care Environment category features a Safety and Infection Control subcategory for both exams along with a Management of Care subcategory for the NCLEX-RN and Coordinated Care subcategory for the NCLEX-PN. The Physiological Integrity category features the Parenteral Therapies subcategory for NCLEX-RN and Basic Care and Comfort, Pharmacological Therapies, Reduction of Risk Potential, and Physiological Adaptation subcategories for both exams. All examinees will encounter the Psychosocial Integrity and Health Promotion and Maintenance categories.

The exam test plans work with the assumption that aspiring nurses bring with them a healthy knowledge of social, biological, and physical sciences. Through class discussions, your instructor can help reinforce your existing understanding or build up any knowledge gaps for these sciences as well as the Client Needs framework and fundamental processes in nursing like Communication and Documentation, Caring, and Teaching/Learning. You could learn even more by requesting a one-on-one session with your instructor outside of class.

How can I benefit from taking a Houston NCLEX course?

The NCLEX class is offered in a virtual classroom that lets you interact via live chats and learn with an online whiteboard. You can communicate directly with your instructor and classmates in real time, which can be highly beneficial when aiming to better understand Computerized Adaptive Testing (CAT) used to administer the exams. CAT is designed to determine your true ability level during the testing process. After answering each question, the computer uses all of your previous answers and their difficulty to re-estimate your ability. The next question the computer selects is expected to give you a 50% chance of providing a correct answer ' one that is not too easy or too difficult.

Your Houston NCLEX class instructor can also help increase your understanding of CAT as it relates to exam structure and length. With CAT, students generally will not answer the same number of questions since they are determined by answers provided for previous questions. Students taking the NCLEX-RN can expect to answer between 75 and 265 questions, while NCLEX-PN examinees can expect to encounter 85 to 205 questions. If you are worried about your ability to answer questions within the time allotments of six hours for the NCLEX-RN and five hours for the NCLEX-PN, your instructor can help build your confidence by offering test-taking strategies focused on maintaining a steady pace and keeping your composure while taking your exam. You could also receive tips for answering different types of NCLEX exam questions like multiple choice, ordered response, multiple response, and hot spots.

If you develop questions about NCLEX exams while taking the Houston NCLEX course, the interactive online environment makes it easy to get instant answers from your instructor and classmates. You might even get extra time to collaborate with your peers if your instructor breaks the course into small groups.
