How I Passed NCLEX-RN 1st Attempt with Minimum Questions

  • To pass the NCLEX-RN, I knew I had to prepare adequately, especially as a nurse trained outside of North America.
  1. I started by dedicating 12 weeks (3 months) to thoroughly prepare. I developed and followed a well-structured study plan for myself. 
  2. Firstly, I reviewed all the topics and content areas that are covered in the most recent NCLEX-RN study plan.
  3. After reading so many online reviews on the best NCLEX-RN Review Programs and sorting through many NCLEX-RN Review materials and classes, I settled on some useful study resources that are tailored to my learning need as an internationally trained nurse. See below for the specific resources that I used. 
  4. I made sure to allocate enough time for studying each day and consistently reviewed the material until I had a thorough understanding of it.
  5. I also found it helpful to take NCLEX-RN practice exams and Test Banks to familiarize myself with the format and types of questions on the actual exam. After each practice test, I reviewed my incorrect answers to identify areas where I needed to improve and adjusted my study plan accordingly.
  6. Finally, I paid and attended an NCLEX-RN Strategy Course which teaches how to dissect NCLEX-RN questions and pick out the most accurate answer from other correct options.

    Passing the NCLEX-RN requires dedication, diligence, and a well-planned study strategy.

    With hard work and perseverance, you too can achieve success on this exam.
