If you have an interest in receiving help preparing for the NCLEX, you should reach out to Varsity Tutors to get started with Portland NCLEX prep. The National Council Licensure Examination, or NCLEX, is designed to measure competency in nursing. You can sign up to take the NCLEX-RN or NCLEX-PN depending on whether you are interested in becoming either an RN or a PN. The NCLEX is different than many other standardized tests in that it is adaptive. Whenever you answer a question, the computer estimates your skill level based on your performance. The subsequent question should reflect your skill level and give you a 50% chance of answering it correctly. The NCLEX covers an extensive amount of concepts. As such, going through a comprehensive review in Portland NCLEX prep could be helpful as you prepare to take the exam.

What topics can Portland NCLEX prep review?

The amount of questions on the NCLEX varies for each student because questions are generated based on previous answers. While exam content changes every few years to reflect current practices in nursing, there are some concepts that are pretty consistent. One content area is client needs, which contains questions on physiological integrity, safe care environment, and health promotion, among others. The NCLEX also tests on scientific topics, such as chemistry, anatomy, and psychology. Finally, the exam looks at fundamental processes in nursing, including culture, documentation, and learning.

Reviewing relevant topics is an important aspect of preparing for the NCLEX. But it can also be valuable to go over test-taking strategies. One key factor is time-management. This skill can ensure that you move through the exam quickly enough that you have a chance to answer each question while not moving too quickly that you make errors. This is vital on the NCLEX because once you submit an answer to a question, you won't be able to go back to it later. Taking practice tests can also help you get more comfortable with the test format because you may not be familiar with adaptive exams. It may also be beneficial to develop a more effective method of guessing. Rather than picking a letter at random, you can find ways to eliminate answer options based on the information you find in the question or provided data. Information on the exam can be provided in many different ways, including graphs, videos, or audio clips.

What are the benefits of the types of Portland NCLEX prep?

There are two versions of NCLEX prep: a Portland NCLEX prep class and private tutoring. Most students sign up for one option, but there are some who enroll in both. Whichever one you decide on, you can get expert instruction.

If you enjoy studying with others, you might want to enroll in a Portland NCLEX prep course. This gives you access to an instructor who can help you review content and classmates who you can collaborate with. Your instructor can provide feedback, guidance, and answer any questions you have after class. Studying with classmates can be advantageous because you can discuss alternate study strategies and approaches to nursing. As the NCLEX contains several different types of questions, such as multiple response, short answer, or sentence completion, it can also be beneficial to go over strategies for answering each type.

If you prefer preparing in a more personal fashion, you may wish to connect with a Portland NCLEX tutor. One benefit of private tutoring is that you have more flexibility in which topics you prioritize. If there is a particular topic you're having trouble understanding, you can focus on going over that topic while not prioritizing topics you're already familiar with. In addition, your private instructor can change the way they present content to match up with your learning style. If you are a visual learner, they can provide diagrams or pictures to help facilitate learning.
