Preparing for the NCLEX Exam

5 January 2018 By Lucas

The National Council Licensure Exam (NCLEX) is the final test for practical nursing students to pass before entering the nursing field. How can you use what you’ve learned at Pioneer Pacific College to prep yourself for the big exam? We have a few tips that can take you on the path to success!

All Practical Nurses must take the NCLEX exam with the state nursing board to become a nurse. The NCLEX determines whether you are prepared for an entry-level nursing role. Your Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) certification is permanent, but continuing education and renewal may be needed. You can only retake the NCLEX test every 90 days if you fail, so make sure you are prepared!

At Pioneer Pacific College, our LPN program will get you ready for the big test in a number of ways. Skills taught during this program include injections, medication administration, wound
care, urinary catheterization, and specific preparation for the NCLEX. You will gain practical, hands-on experience during the clinical phases of the nursing program in interdisciplinary settings of
hospitals, long-term care, and other community health facilities under the supervision of qualified nursing faculty.

How to Prepare
The NCLEX test itself has four categories and six sub-categories, and the answers are multiple choice. You have up to six hours to take the test, so you shouldn’t feel the need to rush. It is
also a pass/fail exam, and the number of questions can range from 75 to 265. Here are three specific test-taking tips for when you take the NCLEX:

  1. Think Critically
  2. Study Strategically
  3. Come Prepared and Remain Calm

Have you thought about becoming a licensed nurse? We offer a unique, accelerated 50-week course that enables you to be ready to take the national NCLEX in less than one year! And not only
that, we also ensure that you can take the classes you need without waiting for them to become available or have space, as is the case with other LPN-granting institutions.
Pioneer Pacific College also knows the value of your time. There’s no class that we require in the program that isn’t directly necessary to pass that national exam. Everything you learn
prepares you to not only pass the exam, but to be successful in the LPN career. That includes a discussion of industry trends and being informed when there are new LPN job openings.
We understand that taking the NCLEX is hard, and we’re here to help relieve some of your fears and worries about the big test! Passing the NCLEX takes nursing knowledge, skill, and
preparation, and at Pioneer Pacific College, we are here to help!
