To those who have taken Kaplan for NCLEX

  1. I'm curious about Kaplan. At my school, we are really pushed to take Kaplan but frankly, I don't have the hundreds of dollars it costs.

    My question is: what is Kaplan like? I've seen the question trainers online. We have a paid tutor who works for the school and Kaplan and she taught us the strategies. I know they have a question bank. What more is there to Kaplan?

    What else does this high dollar course consist of?

    It really depends on your study style. I took Kaplan and was glad I did because I was confident about the content, but have a lot of nerves surrounding test taking, so I wanted to know the test inside and out. Kaplan teaches you HOW to take the test and goes over a little content (it provides you with online resources to go over content on your own time if you wish), but not much in class and then provides you with lots of questions. I like the $$ back guarantee too...if you do everything they ask of you and you don't pass the NCLEX then you will get that money back.

    If you already learned the strategies though, I wouldn't buy the expensive course. You can get LOTS of other resources for cheaper that will provide you with the question bank, and you can review your notes and books if you need to review content. Good luck on the exam!

    meh, I didn't really consider it a big deal, 2 days of answering questions in a group, and it basically boiled down to do you assess or intervene. I took it because my employer reinbursed us on our first paychecks. if I had to pay for it out of pocket, i'd probably pass. but I'm a good test taker, took NCLEX in 35 minutes.

    To be honest, you don't need the class. You'll just waste a lot of money. The only thing you need is the Kaplan NCLEX-RN book and it pretty much goes over the test taking strategies that they go over in class (book has little content though).
