Let’s clear up confusion about NCLEX Content.
Nursing school is CONTENT based. The NCLEX is CONCEPT based.
NCLEX is not a test of academic knowledge. Your ATT proves you have a knowledge base. NCLEX tests if you can think.
Clearly, it is impossible to know everything. Nursing is an ever-expanding body of knowledge and you will be faced with something you don’t know when testing. Are you able to make a critical decision with the limited information given?
NCLEX is designed to test if you can think, if you can control your emotional response and use problem-solving skills to make an educated guess based on the limited information given in a question.
NCLEX is a professional exam that requires clinical judgment. It tests “entry-level mental competence.”
NCLEX tests skills and abilities. You can’t study the way you did for academic tests when you were a student. Instead, train to manage each question, each situation, and the exam performance overall.
happyNCLEX training follows The NCSBN Clinical Judgment Measurement Model and is delivered by demonstation and guided practice, live and on-demand..
Learn to approach questions the way they are written and evaluated, using Bloom’s Taxonomy for the cognitive domain. This skill set is required for NCLEX as well as nursing certification exams, job interview testing, and continuing nursing education. Your investment in learning critical-thinking skills for NCLEX retains its value throughout your nursing career.
It’s so easy when you make the switch from study to practice, from student to professional.
End the cycle of study-fail-study-repeat and learn to apply critical thinking to NCLEX.
