Both the Kaplan NCLEX-RN and NCLEX-PN preparation courses offer over 3,000 practice exam questions with feedback, presented in a user interface that mirrors the actual test. Both the live online and in-person courses feature 21 hours of class time, an online question bank, a database of online practice tests, a readiness test and an e-book covering the most frequently tested material on the NCLEX exam.
Kaplan offers a self-paced NCLEX prep course that features everything offered in the live online and in-person course, with the exception of the instructor-led class time. Instead, students have access to pre-recorded lessons and receive email support.
The NCLEX-RN exam, for registered nurses, and the NCLEZ-PN exam, for practical nurses, test how students use critical thinking skills to make nursing judgments. Questions are primarily multiple choice, but there are also alternate question types, such as multiple-response, fill-in-the-blank, hot spots, chart/exhibit and drag-and-drop.
Kaplan offers a number of unique tools in all their prep courses. Decision Tree teaches students test-taking strategies. Practice tests are designed to realistically reflect the real test question and interface and emphasize alternate-item question types. A comprehensive review helps students pass the test the first time. If for any reason the student does not pass the test the first time, Kaplan offers a tuition refund or a free continuation of enrollment in the program.
