A Raleigh-Durham NCLEX course with Varsity Tutors can provide you a more convenient, affordable, and comprehensive way to prepare for the NCLEX. You can finish your entire test prep online and study under the tutelage of highly qualified NCLEX instructors. You can also have the option to enroll in a morning or afternoon course, or you can also study in an evening course during weekends. If you are like many aspiring nurses from schools like the Duke University School of Nursing or Wake Technical Community College who are looking for practical test prep courses, then a Raleigh-Durham NCLEX prep course might just be the right one for you.
What are some of the topics a Raleigh-Durham NCLEX class can cover?
There are two types of nurse licensure examinations administered by The National Council of State Boards of Nursing, Inc. (NCSBN): the NCLEX-RN for those who finished a registered nursing program and the NCLEX-PN for those who want to work as practical/vocational nurses. Both tests are computer-adaptive tests, which means the number and level of difficulty of questions that need to be answered can vary for each test taker. The questions are generated based on how you answer the previous questions.
The NCLEX measures your knowledge and skills on four major categories based on the framework of "Meeting Client Needs." These are Safe and Effective Care Environment, Health Promotion and Maintenance, Physiological Integrity, and Psychosocial Integrity. You will mainly answer multiple-choice questions, but there can also be fill-in-the-blank type questions, hot spots, multiple response, and ordered response. There can also be a mix of tables, charts, graphics, video, and audio in the questions. Candidates who take the NCLEX-RN have a maximum time of 6 hours to finish the test, while NCLEX-PN test takers get a maximum of 5 hours.
Besides covering the content and format of the test, your Raleigh-Durham NCLEX class instructor can also impart test-taking strategies to help you efficiently answer a computer-adaptive test like the NCLEX. You can also learn ways how to improve your study style so you can retain information longer. For example, you can try using mnemonic devices when memorizing terms or when mastering hard-to-learn concepts.
What are the advantages of enrolling in a Raleigh-Durham NCLEX course?
These courses have a number of advantages that you can benefit from when going through your NCLEX review. The courses are led by expert instructors who have years of industry and NCLEX prep experience, so you can learn all about the exam from people who have really been where you're going. You are not just learning from textbooks or research materials, but you can receive first-hand information from instructors who have been practicing nurses for many years. Your instructor can give detailed discussions and demos on important nursing concepts and procedures such as the Airway-Breathing-Circulation or ABC prioritization technique, or how to administer injections.
Another advantage is that the course is conducted online which gives you the benefit of studying for the NCLEX in the comfort of your home. You don't need to travel to a physical classroom or worry about your commute. All you need is an internet connection and computer and you're ready to go. You can study in a virtual classroom and use video chat to interact with your instructor and classmates. Studying with other aspiring nurses can be beneficial for your test prep since you can also pick up on new insights by listening to their perspective on practice questions you're working on in class.
Although learning with a group can be helpful, there might also be times when you may want to have personalized attention from your instructor, especially if you're struggling with certain questions or cases in the NCLEX. In those times, you'll appreciate the convenience of being able to reserve a one-on-one meeting with your instructor so you can get the extra help you need in addressing your difficulties in the test.
If you're worried about how you can fit your NCLEX review in your busy schedule, you'll also be relieved to know that there are many course times to choose from in a single day. Since the course is online we're able to offer morning and evening classes, and even classes in the middle of the day and weekends.

...Teaching is more about communication than it is about deep seeded knowledge. One with less knowledge about a subject but better communication skills will tend be a great teacher, in my opinion. For example, I may have the highest degree, highest level of understanding and knowledge of a particular subject, but if I do not know how get YOU to see it or understand, then I cannot actually teach it to you. If, on the...
