Summary
This book is a focused, up-to-date strategic guide to help you prepare for the challenging NCLEX-RN exam-now with online practice test. To become a registered nurse in the United States, nursing school graduates must pass the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN). It is a computer-adaptive test with between 75 and 265 questions that can take up to 6 hours. Each year, around 200,000 nursing students take this exam. Strategies play an important role in passing the NCLEX-RN, which is a critical thinking test requiring students to go beyond simply recognizing facts. In this guide, test-takers will have access to the most effective methods available to guarantee a passing score. This book combines its strategy guide with a comprehensive review designed to meet the challenges of this rigorous exam, including: 2 practice tests (one in the book and the second both on the CD-ROM and online); Detailed answer explanations; In-depth analysis of NCLEX-RN question types; Review of alternate question types; 47-item sample of Kaplan's NCLEX-RN Question Bank online; Features more of the most challenging questions and a bold, user-friendly design
