- Feb 29, '12 by asmclyn89congratulations! thank you for that.
- Mar 3, '12 by appleskeletonThanks everyone!! I completely forgot to wish everyone good luck! I know you'll all do great! It just takes a lot of time and organization. Good luck!!!
- Thanks for sharing your study tips! I am FAR from taking the NCLEX - in fact, I'm still waiting to see if I've been accepted into Jefferson's APW program for non-nurses. If I am accepted, it would be well over 2 years before I take the NCLEX. However, I like to be well prepared, and I will definitely remember these tips when it's my time! It sounds like Kaplan really is the best way to go, so I will be sure to do that. Thanks again for the info and good luck to you!
- Mar 3, '12 by NewGoalRNQuote from jocy_anneWhy are have you waited 2 yrs to take the NCLEX and what is an APW program? Both Hurst and Kaplan reviews are excellent. They focus on different things i.e content vs strategtiesThanks for sharing your study tips!

- Quote from NewGoalRNI have to wait 2 years to take the NCLEX because I haven't yet started nursing school. The APW program is the "Accelerated Pathway to the MSN" program that Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia offers. It is a program for people who already have a Bachelor's degree in another field (mine is in Law & Justice Studies) and are looking to switch careers. Once the program starts, it takes about 2 years to finish the nursing courses and then the students sit for the NCLEX after that period. Getting into the APW program also grants you automatic admission into their Master's program, too, which is nice. You can either go right into it after completing your BSN, or you can take up to 2 years to work and then go back into the MSN program without having to reapply. If I get in, I will start in September, but I haven't received my final decision from them. Thanks for the advice...I will look at both Hurst and Kaplan when I'm ready to take the exam!Why are have you waited 2 yrs to take the NCLEX and what is an APW program?

- Mar 3, '12 by NewGoalRN^^ Oh I see. Sounds like a good program. Good luck. I too have an NON nursing degree in another field. I did the ASN at my local community college and I'm torn between doing a BSN or NP. I'm leaning towards a MSN prgram as I already have a B.S so it's sort of redundant to have 2 Bachelors when it will only result in a .50- $.75 salary increase.
Good luck and hope u get in
- Mar 3, '12 by jess1018I took nclex today and while I do not know if I passed yet I got the good pearson vue pop up and it shut off with 75 questions. Kaplan looked just like nclex!!!! I have been working as a GN on a labor and delivery floor and wasn't able to finish q trainer 7 and the readiness test. But I took the other trainers and scored between 55-63% I also did some q bank test. When I got to the test today I felt like ok I can do this because this is exactly like what I have been practicing (if not a little easier) Kaplan I think really eases your anxiety.
- NewGoal, yeah I think you might be right about that. Since you already have the ASN, you should find a program that has you going straight to the MSN. I'm not sure where you live, but I know that Drexel University in Philadelphia has a bridge program that would be good for your situation. Their bridge program is for RN's who already have a Bachelor's in another field. The "bridge" portion is 3 undergraduate courses that you have to take online prior to graduate work. Once you pass those online courses, you start graduate courses. You don't get the BSN, but would end up with the MSN. Of course, if you don't live anywhere near Philly or have no desire to move to Philly, then this information is completely irrelevant. Thanks for the well wishes and good luck to you, too! I hope you get into a program that suits you!
- Mar 4, '12 by GoosbyLPNCongrats and thank you for sharing...can u tell me where did u get this ....Alternate format quiz & Sample NCLEX test #3 (I thought #3 was important because it is all priority questions)
- Mar 4, '12 by appleskeletonBoth are included with Kaplan. If you already have Kaplan, the alternate format quiz is in the "My Toolbox" section. For sample test #3, go to "My Toolbox" --> Qbank --> NCLEX-RN Sample Tests (link on left side of screen).
