This class has two purposes: get you used to being a nurse (hence, 180 clinical hours & 12 hour clinical shifts) and prepare you for NCLEX (hence, 8 hour lab days that involve nothing but covering NCLEX topics). Each week we are assigned 300 NCLEX prep questions from this book:
So far I’ve completed 1,050 questions. I like it because it’s the first class that isn’t content focused. It’s focused purely on passing the NCLEX by doing practice questions (there’s no better way to prepare). In other words, I don’t feel like I’m wasting my time, which is a novel feeling in nursing school.
