Online NCLEX-RN prep course for international Ss

  1. I'm an RN working in the Persian Gulf. I'm not a native English speaker and completed my RN program in a non-English international program in Asia. I'm looking for a NCLEX-RN prep course that is tailored for the needs of international students. I looked at the Kaplan online course which says it is tailored for international Ss like me. But it doesn't look anything special.

    Has any other interational nurses taken Kaplan's NCLEX-RN prep course?
    Are there other online prep courses you took that were helpful?

    Thanks. Snoopynurse

    Hi there. I'm not an international nurse, but I just wanted to say that Kaplan is really good for preparing you to answer NCLEX type critical thinking questions. The questions are very similar to the real NCLEX, except the ones in Kaplan are a little harder. If you can't afford Kaplan, the co-moderator of this forum, Suzanne4, has a 6 week program using Saunder's Comprehensive Review book (3rd edition). What you have to do first is go to the sticky on top of this forum that says "First tip of my new study guide." You have to follow it exactly. After you're done with that tip, PM Suzanne your email address and she will send you her plan via email. She has helped A LOT of international nurses pass the NCLEX and her passing rate is ~100%. And her plan is free. All you need to do is to get the Saunders book. Hope this helps! Good luck! I wish you all the best.

    That is true, listen to Lena, kaplan is an excellent review and also saunders will get you familiar with USA nursing, all the best.

    Do I need the CD with Saunders or just the book? I got the book but have lost the CD somewhere.

    My husband wants to help me with studying. Has anyone else found success in someone else helping you study (that someone would not be a nursing student)? I question whether my studying methods are helpful. Since I failed the test 3 times using this method, I wonder if I need something else. I like to memorize nursing content from various textbooks and test prep books.

    How can another person help? My husband is a teacher (but not in health) and thinks he can help me studying in different ways.
