Are you looking for a course that is affordable, interactive, and self-paced? Well, the NCSBN review course, or the National Council of State Boards of Nursing, may be the right course for you! Notably, Hurst, Kaplan, and Sylvia Rayfield are the most publicized and recommended review courses among nursing students and faculty. Certainly, these review courses are excellent resources, but they are marked with a hefty price.

For the nursing student living on a budget or raising a family, those prices may create a deathlike squeeze. So, during my last semester, I searched for courses to prepare for licensure. Certainly, major search engines, such as Google, pushed those heavy hitters (Hurst, Kaplan, and Sylvia Rayfield). However, I stumbled across a hidden gem. A jewel christened NCSBN. During my preceptorship, I overheard underground chatter regarding the course’s increasing popularity. Likewise, my preceptor praised that the course equipped her with the knowledge, strategies, and confidence to successfully pass on her first attempt. She boasted that NCSBN’s review course questions were startlingly parallel to those she encountered throughout her exam, and she passed with  75 questions! Of course, I was impressed with her recommendation; nevertheless, I conducted an inquiry. Wonderfully, I discovered that the hype concerning the course was justified. Want to know why it’s hot?

Because of its features and promising references, I selected NCSBN’s review course. Initially, I found it to be very challenging and intense. The content provided a comprehensive review of all subjects. As I reviewed the material, I progressively gained confidence and knowledge, and I developed vital critical thinking and test taking skills. Furthermore, I found that the questions provided in the review course were uncannily similar to those on my NCLEX exam. Thankfully, I passed with 75 questions on my first attempt! Frequently, I recommend this review course to all of my friends enrolled in nursing programs. Undeniably, I am confident that the NCSBN review course delivered a ready-made guide to success.

In the end, you must choose the best review course that meets your needs. Some individuals engage and thrive in a classroom-like atmosphere. While, others flourish in self-paced lessons. All in all, I advocate studying hard, staying committed, and trusting in the power of your knowledge. You made it through nursing school!
