The NCLEX course offers a chance to strengthen your preparations for the exam you plan to take and help you do your best on test day.
How can a Nashville NCLEX class help me study?
The National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN) and for Practical Nurses (NCLEX-PN) are exams developed and administered by the National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) and used by nursing regulatory bodies to assess each candidate's entry-level nursing competence and grant licensure or registration to nurses. NCLEX-RN and NCLEX-PN test plans both feature similar client needs framework categories and subcategories to ensure candidates have a quality understanding of clients' health needs and fundamental integrated processes in the practice of nursing. Every three years, these tests are updated to ensure they cover current nursing competency at the entry level.
The Nashville NCLEX prep course offers insight into clients' needs to help you better understand how to address categories like Health Promotion and Maintenance and Psychosocial Integrity. You can also learn more about the Safe and Effective Care Environment category, which features a management of care subcategory for NCLEX-RN examinees, coordinated care subcategory for NCLEX-PN exam takers, and safety and infection control subcategory for all test takers. The Physiological Integrity category consists of subcategories that are covered on both exams: basic care and comfort, pharmacological therapies, reduction of risk potential, and physiological adaptation. This category also features a parenteral therapies subcategory that is addressed only on the NCLEX-RN exam.
What are the advantages of enrolling in a Nashville NCLEX course?
A great way to improve your confidence as you approach exam day is to get acquainted with the structure, testing system, and types of questions you could encounter on your test. The NCLEX exams are administered using Computerized Adaptive Testing (CAT), which is designed to offer questions that are not too hard or easy and ultimately gauge your true ability level. After answering an NCLEX test item, the computer will use your previous answers and their difficulty to re-estimate your ability. The next question will be designed to give you a 50% chance of providing a correct answer. Keep in mind that you will not be able to return to any questions after they have been submitted. Fortunately, the Nashville NCLEX course can help you become more familiar with CAT and provide tips for analyzing and answering each question with care.
Students who take NCLEX exams generally don't answer the same number of questions. Instead, they could answer any number from 75 to 265 on the NCLEX-RN and 85 to 205 on the NCLEX-PN. The reason for this variation is that each student's questions are generated based on how the previous question was answered. Your NCLEX course instructor can help you better understand this testing format and also introduce you to the types of questions you could encounter on exam day, including hot spots, fill-in-the-blank calculation, multiple choice, ordered response, and multiple response. You can also learn strategies for pacing yourself through the questions so you can make the best use of the six-hour time allotment for the NCLEX-RN or five-hour allotment for the NCLEX-PN.
In this Nashville NCLEX class, you have the opportunity to interact with your classmates via live chats in a virtual classroom you can log into from any distraction-free location with an internet connection. During class discussions, your instructor and classmates might explore processes fundamental to nursing that might be covered on the exam like communication and documentation, culture and spirituality, and teaching/learning. If you need personal time to discuss exam concepts or test-taking strategies, you can request a one-on-one session with your instructor. You and your classmates might also be divided into small groups in which you could offer each other instant feedback to questions and share study tips that could strengthen your preparations for the exam.

...a clinical instructor for the past 4 years. My teaching style is extremely laid back, there's too much going on in this world to stress you out- I absolutely refuse to aid in making education a stressful, anxious experience. I use real world examples while teaching, I find this works best to bridge the (large) gap between knowledge and application. Nothing is a better feeling than assisting my students in achieving that "light bulb" moment where...
