I can make you an NCLEX study plan that is specific to your needs. But what does one look like? And how do I tailor it to your needs?
I take 4 major points into consideration when I develop a plan for you:
- When is your test date?
- Is your test date realistic?
- How much time do you have daily to study and practice questions?
- What are your content weaknesses?
There are certain topics you have to review. All of the topics come from the official NCLEX test plan. In certain cases, it’s easier to study by system instead of the section of the test plan. This is true especially if you are weak in content or it’s been a few years since you graduated.
The above example is a 4-week NCLEX study plan. As you can see, we are really cramming in a lot of material in 1 month. But this is assuming you just finished school or are extremely strong in content. Otherwise, you would need to break up the studying over a longer period of time. Your plan can be 6 weeks, 10 weeks, 12 weeks or longer.
If you’re not sure how long you should study for, read this blog post to get a better idea. But usually the average person needs 2-3 months to prepare.
As we figure out your study plan together, we talk about what resources to use:
- What resources should you use for content?
- What resources to use to answer questions?
You don’t want to use too many resources because you can get conflicting information. You want to simplify your studying! Yes, I help with that too.
We also talk about how often we should meet and what topics to go over.
Tutoring is extremely helpful if you are struggling to figure out the best way to study, what resources to use, and getting a plan together that is specific to your needs.
