NCLEX RN Diagnostic Test

The NCLEX review services for international nurses usually start by conducting a diagnostic exam that helps the students as well as the faculty to develop an individualized study plan based on the learner strengths and weakness. The study plan may include hands on nursing training at an acute care facility, English Language Courses, and Skills Simulation Training.

Week one: The Test-taking Strategies

The first week will give the nurses the edge they need. It prepares the nurses for the latest computerized exam, so they can pass. When it comes to Comprehensive Nursing Examinations it is not enough to have the knowledge, nurses need to learn how to critically think the question, analyze it, avoid the distracter and choose between the two best options.
