    Sorry my message was cut short. Go ahead and read through it. Gather all the necessary requirements and apply. I would think that your mom would no longer require further education. God Bless!

    Hi,

    My mom has been working as an LVN in Los Angeles California for at least 10 years mostly private care for para/quadriplegic patients. She was an RN in Philippines but neglected to challenge the board when she came here to become an RN. She now wants to know what courses, units, and other requirements she needs to fulfill in order to take the exam to become an RN. We would appreciate any resources that could provide guidance.

    Tara,
    If you're mom graduated before 2007 in the Philippines. Most likely she will not need to take any course to be able to sit on the nclex. Why not try to apply to CA BRN to determine her eligibility? Check first their website for step by step application process. Best of luck!

    Hi all! I hope somebody can clarify this in time before I sit on my exam. I am doing Kaplan and came across to some q's that lead me to confusion.

    The online class instructor told me not to touch Iv's, only Rn does, though I feel that In those times I needed to. So As I move along and do the qbank I, then again encounter similar q's , as instructed I did pick "notify rn" instead of "stop the iv" and surprisingly i got it wrong.
    Thus, I emailed the Kaplan Nclex expert and she emailed me the rationale however it was contradictory from the first instructor's. In hope to shed some light on my end I would like to ask all of you here. ( Nclex wise) Can lvn/ pn dc Ivs,Blood transfusions showing reaction and the likes? Everybody feel free to share your inputs! Thanks in advance!

    Hmmmm... These makes me wonder whether Kaplan content will be enough for my liking. Since you purchase another source to supplement your content review. I know you said that the book did not quite fit for you, so what about the videos? TIA.

    So how does it work really? Do they tell you what to do daily? Or give you a strict outline to do each day? When do you exactly read the book and watch the videos? Isn't it the qbank needed to be last? Do they require you to devote a cerrain # of hours? Sorry for the ignorance, but I really wanna know how it works and make sure I can go through it before signing up. Just like you I have two babies and a stay home mom, husband work full time but unlike you, I have no mother or anybody to leave my kids even just for few hours.
    Just so you know your situation resembles a lot like mine. Lol. Good luck to us!😊

    Thanks so much for these.. I have a few q's on my mind that were just answered by your posts. Btw, I plan to purchase it at the end of this month (hopefully) however I won't be able to do the live class, probably the "anywhere" is what I'm going for and it may be just as good. I didn't like the fact that they only provide E-Book for I am not a fan and too techie person. Where did you happen to buy the actual book? Was it the latest edition? I will definitely be needing one soon. I try searching online unfortunately got no luck finding one. Please let me know. Thank you!

    Hi,

    I dont have access yet. They said it takes 24-48 hours to get me setup in the system. Then I have the orientation stuff, a pre-test to see where Im at and whatever else before my live classes that start Monday. As soon as I get a chance to access it, I will let you know!
    Dafishman, did kaplan give you a review book along with the review?

    Oh, and I got 76 questions. I was kinda freaked out because of the extra one, but thankful that I passed and that I didn't get 265, that would have been a LONG day. Just do not focus on how many questions it is. When I hit 76 I was mentally ready for 100. Go in there trained and ready for a fight!

    Found out today that on Monday I slayed the dragon-NCLEX. Just me and a little brain. All things are possible with God, I believe it.

    Here is my study plan:
    Kaplan
    NCLEX Mastery

    Those 2 NCLEX study guides that are floating around on allnurses were AMAZING, one is HESI/NCLEX and the other is just for NCLEX.

    I mostly did questions 50-150/day for several weeks.

    YOU CAN DO IT!!
    Congrats! Did you also used the Kaplan video for content?

    Thank you! The live class and intensive review that I took were in the Philippines. It was more on test-taking skills, exams and rationalizations. Similar to what can be found online but it helps to have a live instructor to ask questions and discuss things further. I'm not too sure if they have it in the US but you can try checking on kaplan's website I do know Kaplan has an online class with a live instructor though.
    No wonder... I see no such review offer like that here (CA),,, thanks for the info!
