If you have found yourself wanting to learn more about a Jacksonville NCLEX course, Varsity Tutors can enroll you in a conveniently scheduled course. While you may have already covered some of the material from one of these courses during your studies at a local university, such as the University of North Florida or Florida State College at Jacksonville, taking a prep course can help you become familiar with the material again, especially if it has been a number of years since you were a full-time student. The NCLEX is a complex and thorough exam, and being enrolled in a prep course may help you to feel better prepared and confident in what you know as the test day approaches.
What Are Some of the Topics a Jacksonville NCLEX Course Can Cover?
The NCLEX is a required test that nursing students must pass before they will be allowed to work as nurses in the state where they reside. There are two different versions of the exam: the NCLEX-RN, which is for those who hope to become Registered Nurses, and the NCLEX-PN, which is meant for those who are working towards becoming Practical Nurses.
The NCLEX uses computerized adaptive testing, so it is administered entirely in an electronic fashion. Every time an item is answered, your ability is assessed based on the previous answers you have given, as well as the difficulty of the questions. The next item is then selected, which you should have a 50% chance of answering correctly. It should also be noted that once you click on an answer, you can't return to that question later in the testing session. The purpose of the test is to acquire as much information as possible regarding your competencies in nursing.
Because of the way the test is administered, the number of questions, along with its duration, will vary from person to person. If you are taking the RN version of the test, the minimum number of questions you will need to answer is 75 and the maximum is 265. In terms of duration, the test will not exceed six hours. If you are taking the PN version of the test, the minimum number of questions you will have to answer is 85 and the maximum is 205. The test will not run any longer than a total of five hours.
Throughout the test, you will encounter different types of questions. These will be multiple-choice as well as multiple response, fill-in-the-blank calculation, and ordered response. Test questions could also include a multimedia component, which might be present in the form of charts, tables, graphics, sound, or video.
As you proceed through your Jacksonville NCLEX course, some topics which your instructor may cover could include such subject matter areas as "Safety and Infection Control," "Basic Care and Comfort," "Pharmacological Therapies," and "Reduction of Risk Potential."
What Are the Benefits of Taking a Jacksonville NCLEX Class?
The NCLEX is a detailed exam that covers a lot of information in a relatively short amount of time. That is why signing up for a Jacksonville NCLEX class provided by Varsity Tutors may be an option that you would like to consider.
It would be very easy for even an experienced test taker to feel overwhelmed while trying to prepare for the NCLEX if they were trying to do so by themselves. One of the benefits of enrolling in this type of class is that it may allow you to feel less alone. You will be working with other students who are in the same exact position you are in, and thus, all of you will have a common goal.
This can be particularly useful if you have found yourself struggling with a particular concept after attempting to study it on your own. You can easily use the Live Learning Platform to reach out to one of your classmates, who may be more well-versed in this area than you are. You also have the option to try and schedule additional time with your instructor, who may be able to help you further understand the concept as well.
These classes are very flexible in terms of scheduling, as they are available during the morning, afternoon, and at night time. The only requirement to be a part of one of the Jacksonville NCLEX classes is to have access to a reliable internet connection.
