    Txgal is right. The jurisprudence exam is the easiest test you will ever take. You just go to the BNE site to take the test and look up the answers as you go. A lot of them are common sense as well. Congrats on finishing school. Welcome to Texas!! :spin:

    The BON website also has a study module for the exam. It cost me $25 to take and highlighted the topics that the exam covers. (I took it because I was preparing a presentation on the Nurse Practice Act.) It might be a good idea for you to take since you are coming in from another state.

    Thanks to all who helped me on this! I did end up taking the study prep course. It helped me a lot taking the test, but i'm not sure that it was really necessary. It was easy and passed! One step closer to getting there!

    This is a good idea. Texas is a state that has a lot of malpractice activity because the whole state is run by the trial lawyers association. It is a topic that every nurse needs to know about and understand. ( I used to work in Texas). Here in Washington state we have to take an extensive exam on HIV. Every state has their own requirements I guess.

    Hello all! I recently graduated in PA and am moving to Houston suburbs where I found a job. Last week I purchased the study guide for the jurisprudence test from the Texas BON. I went through it one day and took the test the next day and passed with no problems. Personally, I didn't think the study guide was much help...it did however show how to find laws etc on the BON website. The test wasn't too hard and didn't take up too much time. Just use common sense and take your time.

    The Jurisprudence exam took me less than twenty minutes to complete. It really is simple, common sense. No need to stress over it.

    Hello All...I just graduated last week! YAY me...and I took the Jursiprudence Exam like 3 weeks ago. VERY EASY. If you paid an ounce of attention during your Nursing Trends course...or whatever it's called at your school, you should do fine. It is open note, book, and internet! (hehe) You have about 2 hours to take it and there are about 60ish questions. Whenever I had a question about something I wasn't sure of, I just searched it on the BON website(and that's perfectly okay to do). According to our professors, they want to make sure that we understand the rules to the career for which we have decided to embark upon! You can take it before you graduate, after/before the NCLEX, whichever you like! Good luck!
