NCLEX-RN Studying TipsRegister Today!
- by lydespain Jan 23I am in the last semester of my RN program. I am really wanting to be able to study enough for the NCLEX that I can take it shortly after graduation. I am worried that if I try studying for the NCLEX in addition to the other exams and assignments I have this semester that I will not be as successful in my schoolwork as I would like. How soon after graduation did you take the NCLEX? Were you able to study during your last semester of Nursing school or did you just wait and study for the NCLEX after you graduated? Any advice or suggestions would be much appreciated. Thank you!!!
- Jan 23 by dyanne23-RNI did the Kaplan review with my class (our school provided it) within the last 2 weeks of school. I took my nclex and passed 2 weeks after school ended. I only studied Kaplan. I would recommend doing a nclex review such as Kaplan or hurst. Kaplan was great, it taught you how to break down the question and answer. Congrats and good luck to you!!!

- Jan 24 by sunshinebear336Take into comfort that this whole time your BSN education has been preparing you to take your boards.
As for studying, I suggest spending an minimum of an hour everyday (if possible) just reviewing for the NCLEX. Just keep doing a ton of questions and reviewing rationales.
My program required us to prepare for the NCLEX via ATI and it's a pretty good program. They provided us a ton of questions (all different types) and by the time I took my NCLEX (yesterday morning- still waiting for results!) I felt surprisingly comfortable with the questions because I've done so many.
Lastly, I highly recommend getting LaCharity's Prioritization, Delegation, and Assignment workbook. The questions are super hard but I learned a lot from it. Also, the NCLEX asks a lot of those types of questions from this workbook!
