What Exam Prep Resources Are Available?
After completing a state-approved training program, prospective LPNs are qualified to take the NCLEX-PN. While some LPN training programs include exam review sessions, it may be necessary to prepare for the licensure exam through other study aids, include books or standalone exam prep courses.
Exam-prep books can teach test-takers how to take the exam not just through memorization, but by mastering specific test-taking skills. Some companies who've created preparation books for the NCLEX-PN exam include Kaplan, Saunders Q and Delmar. Mometrix Media also has a study guide that offers secrets to achieving a good score on the exam.
Kaplan offers NCLEX-PN prep courses for those taking the test for a first time and those who've taken the test but would like to raise their score. Other companies that offer test prep include Hurst Review, Pearls Review, Pearson VUE, and others. Public health centers and community colleges frequently offer test prep courses as well.
The NCLEX-PN is taken a computer and is reported to state licensing boards as a pass-fail, meaning test takers will need a certain score to successfully pass the examination. Topics covered include effective care, health promotion, health maintenance, pharmacological therapies, risk potential and physiological adapting.
