Texas nursing jurisprudence examination

  1. 0
    I'm eligible to take the NJE for texas and am considering enrolling in the prep course. Did anyone who has taken the exam complete the course? did you find it helpful? Has anyone taken the exam w/o taking the prep course?? was the exam as intense as the NCLEX-RN?? Replies will be most appreciated

    The jurisprudence exam is nothing compared to NCLEX. I graduated from out of state so I did the online prep course. It is more of an explanation of how to navigate the BON website and it gives you papers with quick links which you should use during your test. For me it was worth it because I was already stressed and spending all of my time studying for NCLEX but its defiantly not necessary as the test gives you a lot of time and you are allowed to surf the BON website to look up answers during the exam.

    Good looks meggo...i noticed that they give you ample time to complete the exam but I didn't know if it was one of thsoe deals where they make the exam extra hard BECAUSE you have ample time and the option to review resources during the exam... thanks again

    PS hope you find something soon ( if you havent found anything already).i understand what you're going through...I graduated in Dec 2010 and am running into the same problems

    I took the exam in December. I did not sign up for any related courses. All the info that you need to pass the exam is on the website, and there's plenty of time to search for it.

    Just took it today....SO EASY!! Seriously. One of the easiest (THE easiest), most common sense nursing related tests I ever took. You will be fine.

    It's easy. Most of it is common sense, the rest you have time to look up the answers. Even if you fail, you can retake it again every 10 days.

    I took the prep course and found it to be helpful. It definitely does help you learn how to navigate through the Texas BON. It gives you an overview and help you understand the different topics being tested. 2 hours is plenty of time and knowing where to refer to on the website will help. GOOD LUCK!

    I did not take the prep course. I did not study for the jurisprudence exam. Guess what? I passed on my first attempt because this test is written at a sixth grade level. The questions are so very commonsense. In addition, since it is an open-book exam, you can look up answers on the Texas BON website if you encounter a confusing question.

    Do not waste your time or money on a prep course. This test is easy!

    Ok, so the jurisprudence exam's not too difficult? Say one wishes to spend $25 to take the online prep course anyway. How long does the online prep course take to complete? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?
