About the Nurse.
Jorelie Anne Guirao, MSN, RN
Overcoming your disability or even your failures is the "mother of success."
“I teach others with what I’ve used to pass myself.
There I was, a struggling nursing student trying to pass nursing school. My disability of being born partially deaf in both ears meant that I was better at speed reading and lip-reading.
It was 2013. It was difficult getting to the 4th year as a partially deaf person because the only way to understand anyone throughout my life, especially during clinicals, was by lip-reading them. As any nursing student would know, listening is partially the key to passing clinicals.
That summer, I was studying for the NCLEX by using a combination of review guides, textbooks, and other material. I was worried that I’d fail the NCLEX on the first try. It was too good to be true thinking I would pass the NCLEX on the first try after studying for hours upon hours. Unfortunately, I ended up taking the entire test to 265 questions.
By failing, I’d have to re-take the exam and review for the NCLEX again, which stunted my drive to becoming a nurse.
“Then, I realized something astonishing...
I restructured the way I was studying by creating my own flashcards and creating my own study guides!
Instantly, it became crystal clear to me that not everyone has the same learning methods. Everyone should know that reviewing through KAPLAN and Saunders may work for some, but not everyone.
This is how I saw that I have the ability to help others pass their NCLEX.
My plan was to start creating a set of digital flashcards on the topics I knew were key to taking the NCLEX.
“So I started brainstorming a format that works. But I didn’t stop there.
I then started putting each key topic on this particular format.
After that, I sent it to a small group of nursing students that I felt could benefit from the format. By the time they took their NCLEX, they admitted that my digital flashcards had a hand in their passing.
I figured out a study method that helped me with my short attention span to lectures and showed others how to do the same.
Building on that success, I decided to build an accessible resource – this website and hundreds of articles – for continuing education in nursing, as well as take the format I made, and scale it into a product and then into a program.
I call it...
"Every Day Nurses" or "QD Nurses"
With QD Nurses I can now show any nursing student how to optimize their study habits, whether the NCLEX is 2 weeks away, 4 weeks away, or even 2 months away! I am proud to say that thousands have passed with my first product.
My learning method has helped so many get through the studying process with less anxiety, and that’s why I’m so excited to share this website with you – so you can get these types of results too!
A QD Nurse is a new type of nurse.
Smarter, confident, and ready to take on healthcare’s toughest!
A QD Nurse believes that nursing is their calling… whether they become a registered nurse, a licensed practical nurse, a travel nurse, or even a nurse practitioner; they share the desire to care for the lives of people other than him or herself.

Road to NCLEX Success
I was accustomed to therapeutic techniques at an young age. This led to a growing passion for teaching others and gave me enough drive to found QD Nurses.
I faced the truth early on. Taking the NCLEX can be stressful and challenging. It is the last test you need to take before you can start practicing and gaining experience towards the career path you’ve chosen.
When I found out that the annual failure rate for candidates taking the NCLEX averages 30% in the United States, I made a stern decision to figure out how to help.
Helping you pass the NCLEX is exactly why I made these products. Every single one of these steps in your road to NCLEX success should help make the study process easier and help you on your journey to becoming the awesome nurse you will be.
My hope is that you will continue to stay motivated and on track to accomplishing your goals.
Remember that the NCLEX does not define you. It is only a stepping stone to the rest of your nursing career.
Remember: your success is my top priority. I look forward to helping you reach your goals.
