Hi Everyone,

I am in my last semester of nursing school and haven’t done any study questions or looked into useful tools for preparing for NCLEX. From experience, when would be a good time to study for the NCLEX? After graduation or right now during my last semester of nursing school? Also, what are some good websites or books to study for the NCLEX? Has anyone tried using NRSNG for their NCLEX prep?

Thanks in Advance!

I didn't do any NCLEX until graduation.  We had our in-person Kaplan sessions the week after classes were finished, I took 3-4 weeks to finish the rest of the program and took my test and passed in 75.  You still have quite a bit of content to get through even in your final semester, so there's no point signing up for NCLEX practice yet.

Thank you for your advice. 
I still need mental health and a little bit more of med-surg to complete. I wasn’t sure if I should start studying information I know I’m done with like fundamentals, OB, pediatrics now, that way it’s more fresh on my mind as I go.

I agree with the previous poster that said UWorld. I did that and Hurst which I also found very helpful but if your budget only allows 1, I say go with UWorld and you will be fine as long as you read the rationales, even for the ones you got right.

I would defiantly start now. When I started, I hadn't yet finished peds and I was able to turn off peds questions. If I remember correctly there are over 2000 questions so it's going to take time to go through them all and read the rationales. I think I did about 75-100 questions a week starting right before my last semester.

Thank you for your feedback. I’ll definitely purchase UWORLD soon and start studying. I just finished peds and all I’m needing is mental health and a few more weeks of med-surg but I should be okay.
