Here is the NCLEX study plan that helped me pass the examination. I was able to focus on one topic per day instead of feeling all over the place. You can use this NCLEX study plan or create your own!
- Comprehensive Review Exams
I used NCLEX-RN Questions and Answers Made Incredibly Easy and studied every single rationale after answering every single question. I chose to complete an entire chapter per day. This was my comprehensive review and I learned so much from using this instead of just studying an entire review book from beginning to end. If you want to replace this with Saunders or another comprehensive review book, that’s fine. As long as you cover all of the necessary chapters possible.
Priority Questions Review
You need to practice answering priority questions before you take the NCLEX. I would practice 50-100 questions per day in the morning or night. I liked using the DavisMobile Priority Nursing App. I also used Prioritization, Delegation, and Assignment: Practice Exercises for the NCLEX Examination, 3e. but I enjoyed using the App more considering I can bring it with me anywhere.
Alternate Format Questions Review
You wouldn’t believe how I felt when I took the exam and the first four questions were alternate format questions. I surprisingly felt confident because I got a book specifically to practice these questions. I used Lippincott NCLEX-RN Alternate Format Questions, which I absolutely loved. It definitely prepared me to pass in 75 questions.
I just want to study for two weeks and take this. I feel confident!
If you really just want to take it in two weeks, here is the break down for your two weeks! I really do not advise this, but go for it if you are confident.
Disclaimer: You do not have to take this study plan. You can do it your own way. Everyone is different. This is the generic plan I gave away to assist students to help them pass. It does not guarantee that you will pass. However, I am proud to announce to this day that my students have passed using this study plan.
