How does this work?
JOAN: Recent graduates and those who have tested unsuccessfully just once, are able to learn the required critical-thinking skills in about 6 weeks of practice, 3-4 hours a day, 5 days a week. NCLEX Intensive is recommended.
Those who have made more than two unsuccessful NCLEX attempts and those trained outside the United States usually require 12-16 weeks of training and extra support to increase reading comprehension and information processing skills as well as strategies t0 reduce test anxiety. Extended training is recommended.
Not sure what you need? Does your nursing board require Remedial training to issue an ATT? Contact me by email or schedule a call.
JOAN: If you have a test date within the next 6 weeks and can practice problem-solving skills for 3-4 hours a day, 5 days a week, NCLEX Intensive is recommended. Intensive training begins at registration for up to 6 weeks.

JOAN: Training fees are kept as low as possible to keep the program operating. You will make the fee back quickly once you’re licensed. But if you’re struggling, email me a proposal for payment arrangements. I do my best to help: firstname.lastname@example.org
JOAN: Testers in Extended training can get started with the candidate performance report from a recent attempt. Testers in Intensive training must have a scheduled test date within the next 6 weeks or so.
JOAN: Yes! Live webinars are held at different times to meet the needs of members and all live sessions are recorded so you don’t miss anything. Training is self-paced. Coaching keeps you motivated. I’m here with you daily. Training is designed for working adults. Those who work full-time days train four evenings a week. Those who work 3/12-hr shifts train on their four days off. We work out your schedule together. On-demand recorded sessions are available whenever you want one.
JOAN: When you register on the website you’ll get instructions and a program tour. We create your practice schedule and get you set up for daily practice. I get a notification when you register and we are in touch throughout training.
JOAN: Testers repeat when NCLEX is approached as if it’s an academic exam like in nursing school. NCLEX isn’t testing what was memorized. NCLEX tests the ability to use problem-solving skills to make clinical judgments. You simply need to learn to read questions effectively. No need for study guides or flashcards or other short-term memory strategies. I teach repeat testers how to approach NCLEX with the NCSBN Clinical Judgment Measurement Model. This is very easy to learn and essential for an above-passing exam performance.
JOAN: Practice consistently on free days and add extra weeks if needed. Training is designed for busy, working adults. Most nurses I work with have full-time jobs and family responsibilities. We”ll wout the best schedule for you at registration.
JOAN: I’m flexible with end dates within reason. The goal is to practice consistently, improve weekly and test strong. Too much time causes procrastination. We evaluate along the way and if considerably more time is needed, we deeply discount extensions.
Problem-Solving and Critical-Thinking Skills
The nursing career ladder requires testing up. All professional nursing exams require the ability to use problem-solving skills to make clinical judgments. NCLEX is not testing what was memorized in nursing school. NCLEX is testing if you have the skills and abilities to do the job.
happyNCLEX training addresses this preparation-to-practice gap. No more cramming, no more flashcards, no more confusion.
Critical-thinking and problem-solving skills are taught by a coach’s demonstration, guided practice, and evaluation, the way you would learn any new skill.
You will learn to process information and make clinical decisions the way you will on the job. As problem-solving skills improve, test anxiety is reduced.
