Why You Should Take an NCLEX Exam Prep Course with EduMind

  • 28 September, 2021

Nurses are required to fulfill certain requirements before they can earn licensure.

In addition to obtaining the proper degree, typically a Bachelor of Science, nurses will need to obtain an Authorization to Test (ATT) and register for an exam date with Pearson VUE1 before they can take their NCLEX exam. This exam is developed by the National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) to "test the competency of nursing school graduates in the U.S."2 A passing grade on this exam is required to begin practicing nursing at an entry-level.

According to a 2020 study on the number of candidates who took and passed the NCLEX exam, 86% of all candidates pass on their first try3. One sure way to increase your chances of passing the first time is to take a review or prep course. EduMind's NCLEX exam prep courses are taught by nursing education experts who provide an in-depth look at each subject required by the NCSBN.
