WHERE TO BEGIN —
Congratulations! You have made it through nursing school and you are ready to tackle the NCLEX-RN. There are so many study options for the NCLEX-RN that you might not even know where to start!
This course (With over 3500 Questions + Detailed rationales) is tailored to getting your review started and getting you on the path to success. Our goal is for every exam candidate to pass on the first try!
First, The Test Plan…
The National Council of State Boards of Nursing is responsible for the development of the NCLEX-RN.
Lucky for us, they publish a detailed test plan that lets candidates know what content will be on the exam in addition to information about the exam itself like how it is scored, how much time you have to take the test, and information on the types of questions you will see on the test.
To get started with your studies, take some time to review the test plan and get to know what content you will need to study.
1 YEAR (Take your time!) Review Test Prep Plan Available…
Everyone is different when it comes to how much time they need to study for the NCLEX-RN. For some it can take a month, or two.
For others, it might only take longer – depending on when and where you graduated – and other factors.
Think about how much time you will need to reasonably study for the exam at a pace that will help you feel confident about the information you need to master before exam day. One Year plans are meant to give you enough time to take care of all aspects of this important test. The goal is, WE WANT YOU TO PASS ON YOUR FIRST TRY. You can do it, if you give yourself enough time to review!

Meanwhile, it helps to immerse yourself in extended learning. Boost your readiness and confidence for test day.
👇👇👇👇1 YEAR NCLEX Plan
Deep breathing, meditation, yoga, and a glasses of fine wine – it’s time to clear the way ahead, work on the zen, and dig in.
How do you go about it?
So glad you asked. You ready to beast this thing?! Here’s the extended study gameplan. Let’s break it down into 3 categories:
- Get Prepared
- Master the Content
- Master the Questions
Step 1 – Get Prepared
I know organization may not be your thing – I mean, just look at the state of your car! 🙂
All kidding aside…
Before diving in on question banks or NCLEX-RN prep tests, it’s important to set yourself up for success with a plan. This small amount of upfront effort will maximize focus and time – Remember, every review study session counts! Failing to do so will waste time, energy, and potentially cause more stress and anxiety as your NCLEX-RN date comes closer.
1a – Review how the NCLEX-RN works
The exam is unique relative to most exams out there. It uses Computer Adaptive Quizzing (CAT) to evaluate you. So, rather than being completely in the dark as to what you’re heading into. Things like ‘how many questions will I receive?’ and ‘when will the exam end?’ are covered there.
1b – Review about the types of questions on the NCLEX-RN
Haha! You thought it would be multiple choice only, huh? Well guess again. The exam boasts various types of questions including:
- Ordered Response (place the answers in sequential order)
- Select All That Apply
- Fill in the Blank (Math)
- Drag and Drop
- Hotspot (click a location on a diagram)
Being prepared to answer all these types of questions will ease anxiety and build confidence.
Even with a limited time window (which seems fast), studying will seem like a marathon. However, setting aside chunks of time at regular intervals will provide the best study experience. Should you study for 30 minutes at a time or 3 hours?
It depends on you and your study habits. However, make sure you allocate enough time to cover the content you want – especially problem areas. Remember: regular study sessions at regular intervals will help ease stress and prevent the night before cram!
PS. Make sure you get enough food and sleep!!!!! The brain needs fuel!
Step 2 – Master the Content
Don’t know what you don’t know? Welcome to my world. Luckily there’s an app for that… and online resources, prep course, and our pinpoint daily assignments. Get started, commit and stick with it.
2a – Take a self evaluation
This is a crucial step! Working diligently on the “problem” categories and brushing up on the “piece-of-cake” ones is recommended. If you don’t know where your blind spots are, you’re likely to be surprised when these questions arise.
2b – Map out a content calendar
Now that you know your strengths and weaknesses, it’s time to map out a few weeks at a time. A general rule of thumb is to dedicate the beginning and the end of your study calendar to your problem areas. So, for example, if you lack maternity skills, begin week 1 in maternity and end week x in maternity.
The middle weeks are for reinforcing the rest. If you realize there are micro areas (like math or lab values) that need extra attention, we recommend starting and ending each study session with a focused review – practice writing out lab values when you begin and when you finish your studying. Over the course of your review span, they will be so ingrained in your memory, you’ll be recalling lab values while you sleep!
Step 3 – Master the Questions
3a – Practice, practice, practice
You should be completing at least 100+ practice questions daily. There’s no getting around it. This list on helpful hints for navigating questions is generic but proven to be imperative:
- Read the questions entirely
- Identify which part of the nursing process the questions is asking about
- Find key words
- Rule out answers
- Use critical thinking – ABC’s, nursing process, Maslow’s Hierarchy of needs.
You have only a set timeto review – remember. You can do it. These are concepts that you already have from years of Nursing school!
