I live very close to the Canada - U.S. border so I am planning on applying for my state license and writing the NCLEX after I write the Canadian board exam June 6.
My questions are:
1. I've heard the NCLEX is much more pathophysiology rather than psychosocial based. Is this true? Also, what can you tell me about the testing process? How many questions can i expect and when can I get results?
2. How long should I give myself to study before writing it? Here, we are told 6 weeks to prepare for the CRNE (Canadian one) is adequate.
3. What are the best study guides/books to use? Before I spend more money on books, I'd like to buy the best ones. I heard Kaplan is pretty good...?
