    The Becker College nursing programs (ASN and BSN) are fully accredited by ACEN. This program has never been in danger of losing nursing accreditation or approval from the Massachusetts Board of Registration in Nursing. In fact the nursing program ...
  2. Pub-Med NCLEX Review ?????

    Med Pub was purchased by Assessment Technologies, Inc. (ATI) (www.atitesting.com ) some time ago. Med Pub materials would be outdated and probably not the most appropriate resource to prep for you NCLEX.

  5. I am only speaking for myself as my opinion does not reflect many nursing instructors. If the OP obtained the teacher's edition and test bank with the sole purpose of accessing course exam, this would indeed be cheating. That said, it is no longer ...
  6. Nursing instructor responding, I never use the textbook questions as I know they are not secure questions. In addtion the textbook test bank questions are not always written in current NCLEX-style and they aren't as high level as your instructor/nur...

  12. Darn Kaplan!!!

    Typically people score 10 to 20 percentage points lower on Kaplan than on other NCLEX-style questions (i.e, NCLEX 3500, Saunders, etc.). That said it is important to review the rationales for all questions answered, those that you got correct as wel...
