Good Morning, I passed my NCLEX! I loved your program; everything about it! The hours for tutoring were so flexible. The nuggets you made as well as the 3 readiness tests were very helpful. The strategies you have come up with to help with analyzing questions were the best thing ever! Without those strategies, I might’ve still been struggling! As for Beth, she was the best tutor I have ever had. She always gave me great advice, was terrific at explaining information, and was always available to talk, even through a simple text. She was helping me throughout this whole process mentally with the exam but also helped ease my anxiety and fears of failing again. I would 10/10 recommend your program to others, it is AMAZING! My sister graduates in 2 years in nursing school, my mom said we will use her program for her too! Thank you, Kelsey

After attempting my NCLEX twice, I had lost hope on myself, my ability and knowledge. I began to think nursing wasn’t for me. Thanks to Justine I was able to gain my confidence back. She empowered me to take my exam a third time. Justine prepared me adequately. On my third attempt I passed in 85 questions. I am glad I took that step to begin tutoring sessions with Justine!

Nothing worth having is ever easy. Since I was 10 I’ve dreamt of being a nurse. I tried various reviews, I even had a tutor. I had failed the NCLEX 6 times and was ready to give up. A friend of mine recommended The NCLEX tutor and I was willing to try anything at this point. After lots of hard work and dedication I’m proud to say I’m officially an RN. Thank you to Justine and my amazing tutor Lindsey for making my dream come true!

Justine was recommended to me by a nursing school friend, and I am so grateful that she had the availability to take me on and help me prepare for the NCLEX. Following nursing school, my program provided me with a few days of Kaplan prep, and through other recent grads UWorld was highly recommended – however as someone who needs structure, I felt I needed more. Justine not only provided the structure I needed for my studying, but she taught me extremely valuable test taking strategies that I otherwise would not have had the opportunity to learn. Justine was ALWAYS available via email / phone to answer questions and went above and beyond to provide feedback as we worked through material. Lastly, Justine’s nugget pages were truly lifesaving, her book condensed the overwhelmingly large information base needed for the NCLEX into organized sections – not only do I wish I had this book and access to her lectures during school, but I seriously plan to keep this book forever to use through my nursing career.
Because of Justine, I developed confidence in myself, and I was able to pass the NCLEX as a first-time test taker in 85 questions. I HIGHLY recommend working with Justine to prepare for the NCLEX. Justine, THANK YOU – I truly do not think I could have passed without you!

I found Justine online after my first attempt at NCLEX was unsuccessful. She responded to me right away and was a wonderful teacher. She explained content in a way that made sense and taught me strategies that I was never taught before. I wish Justine had been my teacher throughout nursing school. I think it would have made everything make more sense and it would have been less stressful!
With Justine’s help, I understood a lot more, was able to get lots of practice questions right and even did well on the practice assessments. I took the NCLEX after working with her and I passed, just a few after the minimum amount of questions! And my last question was information I specifically learned from Justine and her nuggets!
I cannot recommend her enough. If I had known about her during nursing school and even before I took the first NCLEX, I definitely would have started with her sooner. Without her, who knows how many more times I would have to test. I am just so thankful for her and all of her help because I am finally an RN!

I had the wonderful pleasure to work with Justine and my tutor Heather. I graduated from nursing school back in 2018 and ever since then the NCLEX was my biggest obstacle.
I have used Uworld, Kaplan, varsity tutors (which was a horrendous experience) and nothing worked for me. I’ve taken the NCLEX so many times that I lost count and started to second guess nursing as a career. However, just as I was considering a career change, my girlfriend discovered Justine and her amazing nuggets book. Justine’s nuggets book is the BEST. Trust me when I say you DO NOT need to buy any other NCLEX book to study from other than Justine’s nuggets book. I was also genuinely scared of the new gen style of NCLEX with all the case studies because I didn’t know what to expect.
My tutor Heather was very patient with me and with her help I was able to build up the confidence to tackle this exam. I took my exam on September 1st and I finally passed after 85 questions!! I am a strong believer in the saying, “Everything happens for a reason” and I wouldn’t be where I am today if my girlfriend never discovered Justine and the nclex tutor. I am glad I never lost hope and I can officially start my nursing career.
Thank you Justine and Heather for everything you guys are the best and to anyone who is struggling with the NCLEX don’t lose hope, I would highly recommend going through with Justine and the NCLEX tutor because I would never have passed without their help.

I have taken the NCLEX several times and have purchased many study guides. I honestly wish I found The Nugget Pages sooner. This study guide gives you all of the pertinent information needed to pass the NCLEX. After using this book (and obtaining a tutor through The NCLEX Tutor) I passed the NGN in 85 questions.
I also wanted to tell you again how great of an experience I had with Heather as my tutor. She really helped me understand the material I was struggling with and helped me navigate test taking strategies. Most importantly, she helped me feel confident as a student again. I really cannot thank you both enough for your help!

I believe God guided me to Justine. From my first semester in nursing school (ADN program), I was on a quest to find resources to help me prepare for NGN (NCLEX NG). I bought ‘Simple Nursing’ at the end of first semester. I attended Mark Kilmek lectures after my second semester. I listened to Cathy Parks, LevelUpRn here and there. Fourth semester one of my seniors told me about Dr.Zee – Nclex High Yield. I listened to his videos as well. I had UWorld starting 4th semester – I sometimes answered the questions correctly and later on the same questions I answered wrongly. I didn’t know why. Even though I am a first time test take – I was on a quest to find the right resources to pass. I am an engineer by profession, and being a single parent getting into a career in Nursing was a big decision, and I wanted to do everything right to succeed at this profession. February 2023, I thought to myself I need a tutor else I am going to fail NGN for sure. I checked out Varsity Tutors – something didn’t feel right as they wanted payment upfront for about $1,000 plus. I had checked out Justine’s ‘The NCLEX Tutors’ as well, and all her videos on YouTube and at the website. I remembered Justine’s guidance on how to select the right tutor, and I knew Varsity isn’t right as they didn’t offer me a first introductory lesson – they just wanted payment upfront. Hence, I finally zeroed in on ‘The NCLEX Tutors’, and entered their waitlist. I was praying to God everyday, and finally at the end of March (one month’s time after getting on waitlist), Justine contacted me, and gauged where I stood in terms of my knowledge. Then she connected me to Beth (Elizabeth Embry, a tutor with The NCLEX Tutors). Wow! Personalized tutoring with Beth, and constant motivation from Beth & Justine helped me nail my performance at NGN. I passed NGN in 85 questions! I knew NCLEX was a tough exam, but in reality it was more tough and vague. Beth prepared me for the exam well. She helped me conquer my weak areas. She worked sincerely hard in every tutoring session to train me to answer questions. ‘The NCLEX Tutors’ were the missing piece in the puzzle I was searching all along from my first semester. Beth taught me strategies to answer questions, and on days I felt doubt and something in my personal life bothered me, Beth encouraged me to focus on the ‘now’: the present moment. I am truly grateful to Justine and Beth for being my guiding light. I couldn’t have passed NGN without them – “I am not bluffing”. Seriously studying all the content couldn’t help me answer the questions – it was the magic sauce : “The NCLEX Tutors’ strategies” that helped me!

Hi! Justin and Heather, I’m very happy and proud to let you know that I finally passed the nclex!!! Thank you so much for everything and for teaching me the right way and not giving up on me. I never knew how grateful I am to have such amazing tutor that helped me until the end. God bless to both of you. I’m forever grateful and humbled by your teachings. Proud to be part of The NCLEX Tutor KoaPine tutoring & Test prep. Nugget book and the strategies were very helpful on my nclex journey. Took it last Friday June 9, 2023 and it was 85 and out!

I worked with Justine and Heather and can’t thank them enough! I took the NCLEX twice before finding The NCLEX Tutor. Studying for the NCLEX can be overwhelming, but Justine managed to condense the complex topics in the Nugget Pages, into a clearer way of understanding the material. I honestly wish I had the Nugget Pages during nursing school. The resources you are given access to through the content videos, Nugget Pages, and face-to-face tutoring, with Heather or Justine were extremely beneficial! I learned test taking strategies and how to apply them to various questions. I don’t know where I would be without the NCLEX Tutor, I can’t thank them enough for their continuous encouragement!

I recently had the pleasure of working with Justine and I can confidently say that it was the absolute best decision I made in preparing for my NCLEX-RN.
I went to Nursing school when COVID started and all lectures/clinicals transitioned to distance/virtual learning. It was a learning curve and when it came time for me to take the NCLEX I really struggled and failed the first time. I experienced extreme testing anxiety because I felt that I wasn’t properly prepared by my school. Prior to working with Justine I failed the NCLEX 3 times. I was using many different resources, I even reached out to my school seeking tutoring and they told me they don’t offer tutoring to graduate students. I was beginning to feel incredibly discouraged. That’s when I found this company and began working with Justine.
She is incredibly knowledgeable and experienced, and was able to provide me with the guidance and support I needed to pass the exam and become a Registered Nurse! One thing I appreciated about her was her personalized approach. She took the time to get to know me, my strengths and weaknesses, and tailored her teaching style to best suit my needs.
She was patient and encouraging, always pushing me to do my best while also being mindful of my progress. Throughout our sessions, she used a variety of teaching methods, including practice tests, real life case scenarios and working through practice questions with me. This helped me to better understand the concepts and also allowed me to see how they could be applied in real-world situations. She also helped me to stop over thinking the simple concepts and using effective strategies when approaching the questions. Overall, working with Justine was an invaluable experience that helped me to feel confident and prepared on exam day. I would highly recommend Justine and her tutors to anyone seeking to pass their NCLEX exam with confidence. It is more than worth it and I can’t say enough good things about her and her company!

Justine and my tutor Beth Y. were amazing . Beth always held me accountable and the structure was overall amazing . The nugget pages and the videos were Chefs kiss. Very easy to understand with the pictures. You learn strategies from the beginning , utilizing them in all questions . By the time it’s time to test you’ll have them memorized!
I heard Beth voice in my head as I was testing…”stick to the simple problem” lol. This program was a huge help in my journey/success as this was my 2nd attempt . Passed in 85 with the NGN NCLEX. It was worth every dime! Very affordable .

Thanks again for everything sending nothing but blessings your way as well as Brian’s. THANK YOU!!!

My testimonial with The NCLEX TutorI had great experience with The NCLEX Tutor Elizabeth Embry was an amazing tutor. I had learned different test taking strategies which helped me pass the NCLEX exam. The NCLEX Tutor test taking strategies have different methods of answering NCLEX questions and I recommend you to take The NCLEX Tutor. On my second attempt, I had made a great decision to take The NCLEX Tutor and I am very happy with the results, I have passed the NCLEX exam. I had learned great skills from Elizabeth Embry how to apply the test taking strategies on the NCLEX exam. The NCLEX Tutor is the best choice of reviewers that are out there and I am glad I made that choice to take The NCLEX Tutor for my NCLEX journey. Thank you so much to The NCLEX Tutor finally I am on the other side and can say I am Sandy Gosal Registered Nurse. Thank you so much Justine Buick for recommending me to Elizabeth Embry and I appreciate your time and consideration. The NCLEX Tutor is the Best !!!!

Amazing tutoring service – I strongly recommend it!! I have taken the exam and failed with multiple attempts only using Uworld. With this program, face-to-face tutoring was accessible which helped tremendously and granted me more confidence.
Justine has created the nugget pages and video content that turned intimidating and complex topics into a simple and easy way of understanding! The program also supplies techniques to analyze + strategize that helped navigate and break down the questions. It made the process of elimination and SATA questions easier.
I passed the NCLEX (new generation) right after I completed this program; I don’t think I could have done it without them and the support of my tutor, Beth Y.! Thank you for helping me start my career in nursing!

When I failed the NCLEX my first time I felt like a failure because I ran out of time and my performance report was below passing. After some time of reflection, prayer, and mental healing I decided to take another shot at boards again, but I knew I could not do this alone and I needed someone to help me pass this crucial exam so I searched through the internet and found Justine’s video about how to choose the right NCLEX review course and I decided to reach out to Justine and her company The NCLEX Tutor for help.
After a brief conversation with Justine she hooked me up with one of her amazing tutors Elizabeth and from there they helped me put together a game plan to help me pass. During my tutoring sessions I learned important test taking strategies and how to approach and breakdown the different types of NCLEX questions which helped to give me a routine to stay on task while practicing question and especially during the boards where time management is important.
The amazing information from Justine’s Nugget Pages made the content easy to understand and remember which makes these pages worth keeping and referring back to in the future. Lastly I had an issue with taking too long on answering questions so Justine and Elizabeth helped me to overcome that issue with an awesome game plan for that. All in all my experience with The NCLEX Tutor was amazing!, their encouragement, and belief in me that I was ready gave me the confidence and belief in myself to pass my exam.
Thank you Justine & Elizabeth!!!

Beth Y. was a great resource for me after 2 failed attempts of passing the NCLEX on my own. My sessions with Beth gave me all the tools and tips I needed to better understand the NCLEX questions. This 6 week program gives you a great schedule to follow. It’s a good refresher on material but more importantly it helped find my weakness and what I needed extra help on. Overall, I highly recommend Beth as a tutor and this program if you are having difficulty with the NCLEX.

I finally passed the NCLEX with 84 questions. The nugget pages, content review videos, testing strategies and the readiness test were very helpful tools that helped me pass my NCLEX. I had Beth as my tutor and she did a great job breaking down the question and making sure that I use the strategies to answer questions. Beth E. was always available when I need help and she helped me build my confidence. Thank you Justine and Beth for your support! I would absolutely recommend them for anyone who needs help passing the NCLEX.

This book was an amazing resource for me as my RN license had expired! After years of being home raising kids, I wanted to re enter the work force and found out I had to re take the NCLEX! This book was a life saver for me- the content is organized, approachable and concise. Exactly what you need for this challenging exam! I passed in 75 questions and could not have done it without this book and Beth as my tutor. She was smart, warm, encouraging, professional and kept me on track for this overwhelming task, after being out of the hospital for twenty years! Thank you, Beth and Justine!

Justine Buick and my tutor Alida from the NCLEX tutors were amazing throughout my experience. I was extremely depressed and felt hopeless when I contacted Justine as I had just failed my third attempt at the NCLEX. From my first meeting with her, she made me feel at ease and explained their program was tailored to each individuals needs.
I cannot emphasize that enough. My tutor Alida quickly identified the target areas to work on and set forth a plan to pass my NCLEX. After 8 weeks of tutoring and dedicated resource support, I passed my NCLEX. I cannot thank them enough for their tremendous insights, test taking strategies and support throughout. I wouldn’t have passed without them.
Thank you so much Justine and Alida!!!!

I had Simmy and Justine as my tutors. I would absolutely recommend them for anyone who needs help passing the NCLEX. I graduated an accelerated nursing program in 2021. I am a repeat test taker and I had a difficult time trying to figure out how to pass this frustrating test. I wasn’t sure what I needed to do to get to a passing level.
They were amazing with going over content, test taking strategies and keeping me accountable with doing practice questions daily. My only regret is that I didn’t look into tutoring sooner. I passed finally in February 2023.

Justine and Heather came into my life when I needed help the most. I have severe test anxiety and had a full blown panic attack when I wrote the NCLEX the first time. I spent 5 months working on myself, but felt like I was in the dark with how to study and be successful with the NCLEX. There was so much riding on passing this test! I had spent months studying with other Q-banks and review courses and felt MORE anxious after those programs. Then I got an email from Justine. We chatted on the phone, she got to know me and I was very fortunate to have Heather as my tutor. What a difference those tutoring sessions and nugget pages made! Immediately Heather made me feel supported and I had a guide to help me with weak spots, practice the strategies, and have the rational of questions and the answers explained in detail. It completely changed the way I was able to answer questions. Heather made me feel confident in my knowledge and having someone tell you you’re ready to write the NCLEX was truly invaluable. I wrote the NCLEX a second time and passed in 75 questions. To say I was shocked is an understatement. I never could have done it without Justine and Heather. I very highly recommend using their expertise and guidance to help you write one of the biggest tests of your life!

I graduated nursing school on may 6th and it was one of the best days of my life. I was so proud of myself for finally doing something with my life at the age of 34. It came time to take the nclex and I was so nervous. Let me tell you I highly underestimated it! I thought they taught me everything I needed to know in school but boy was I wrong. I failed my first time and was devastated but kept trying with no luck on the second or third time either. I studied and did questions and practice tests, I tried the archer review and hurst and mark klimek.
I was on the edge of wanting to not try anymore and my aunt signed me up for the nclex tutor! Best thing that has ever happened! Alida was my tutor and she was amazing! Justine knew what she was doing when she started this company! All of the strategies and confidence boost from my tutor made me that much more confident and comfortable in taking the nclex again. I went to take it and passed it this time in 75 questions! I highly recommend the Nclex tutor if you are having problems in passing the nclex or just in general! It was such an amazing experience.
Thank you guys for everything!

I would just like to say how thankful I am for The NCLEX Tutor program. I am so thankful for the support and help that I received from Justine and Elizabeth. The concepts and strategies that I was taught during the tutoring process made all the difference in the world. I was not that nursing student who struggled during school. I graduated with a B+ average and a knowledge of content. I had previously taken the NCLEX twice with failed attempts. During this program I was given a study plan. I utilized the nuggets pages, content review videos and flashcards. All of these things along with personal feedback from Elizabeth and the readiness test prepared me for the NCLEX. Understanding how to break down the questions and what strategies to apply helped me to pass the NCLEX with 75 questions. I am forever grateful for this program!

I took it on 12/28/2022 and it stopped at 76 questions. The Texas Board of Nursing Website updated this morning with my license. Your nuggets book and review videos were Awesome! Elizabeth was the perfect tutor! THANK YOU!!!!
Thank you for taking the time to help me understand the concepts and how to use the strategies. It helped me select the correct answer for each question. I remember I had told you that I wanted to postpone the exam, but you helped to keep me on track, and I really appreciate that. I am so glad I took it sooner rather than later. Thank you for tutoring me especially on the weekends and the day before and after Christmas. That really helped prepare me!

I would like to thank Justine and Beth for their support and guidance throughout my journey. When I first talked to Justine and Beth I had no confidence that I would ever be able to pass the NCLEX.
I am proud to say that with the help of the nugget pages, content review videos, study plan, testing strategies and the readiness tests; I was able to pass my NCLEX. Beth taught me how to break down every question and gave me tips and tricks on how to answer a question without having the need to guess. Beth was able to answer any question I had at any moment of the day, helped me build confidence and was very kind and knowledgeable. Without Beth and all the material available to me, I don’t think I would have been able to pass.
This was truly an amazing experience and I cannot thank Beth and Justine enough for everything they have done for me. I am proud to officially call myself an RN.

I passed my Nclex on my 4th attempt! I did many qbanks, studied for many hours, listened to many videos, tried different tutors, strategies, but something was missing. I have pretty bad test anxiety and even though I have worked in the medical field for 15 years as an EMT the nclex was on another level!
I thankfully found The Nclex Tutor and KoaPine Tutoring and Test Prep. I want to thank Lindsey and Justine for giving me the tools and strategies to become successful in passing the Nclex! They are your biggest cheerleader throughout this process. I strongly suggest if you are struggling with passing the Nclex to get in contact with Justine.

I never thought I’d be able to feel confident going in to retake my exam again, but with Justine’s help I not only felt confident and prepared, but also passed in just 80 questions!! Her (AWESOME) nugget pages, content review videos, organized schedule, and personalized study regimen makes it so easy to really learn all the information and become familiar with nclex style questions; and her testing strategies as well as the way she taught me to read and break down each question is really what I think helped me pass! I used multiple tutors and study guides in the past and nothing helped me until Justine; I’m so grateful to her and I recommend her to everyone! Hi! I am a repeat NCLEX test taker! I passed my NCLEX on the second attempt after five short weeks. I cannot thank Heather, Justine, and the entire NCLEX tutor program!
I graduated in 2021 with a biomedical science bachelor’s degree and then attended a second-degree nursing BSN program in which I graduated in August 2022. Throughout both of my bachelor’s programs, I was always that person that could walk into an exam without studying and still get an A on it. I truly did not have the proper knowledge base, I didn’t understand how to adequately study, and I strategically did not know how to take this type of exam.
After a couple weeks of being put on the waitlist for this program, I got a call from Justine saying she had an opening in her schedule! Praise Jesus. I was paired with Heather as my tutor. Heather is AMAZING. She worked for hours on end with me, teaching me content, test-taking strategies, and allowed me to regain my confidence. I told my entire family that if Heather lived near us, she was hands down going to be invited to our holidays.
Seriously, this program is great. Justine and Heather took me under their wing and never gave up on me! I am so thankful to have failed my NCLEX the first time and to have found this program. I am confident in my knowledge and so ecstatic to start this new chapter in my life!

Good morning Justine,
I write to you today to inform you that it’s official, I passed my NCLEX. I managed to do it in 75 questions. I do want to extend my sincere gratitude for all the valuable support and guidance you have blessed me with. You have been so kind, patient and motivating. You truly shine as nurse educator inspiring future nurses as they embark upon a climbing their last licensure hurdle, to master the NCLEX. Beyond this, I feel you also have helped to set me up for success as an RN to look at all patient situations presented with a critical lens. I see how instrumental this is to ultimately help keep patients safe. Keep doing the amazing work you are doing; it is needed and valued. I can’t thank you enough for your tutoring support to get me to where I need to be to finally start my career as an RN.
Take much care and thank you again.

First and foremost, I would love to thank Beth and Justine!! I was able to successfully pass the NCLEX my fourth time with 75 QUESTIONS!!! Prior to passing the NCLEX I have used UWORLD, Kaplan, simple nursing, Mark K, Archer, and a few other things. After using all of these programs, I realized I needed something more fitted to my needs. That is where The NCLEX tutor program comes into play. This NCLEX tutor program changed my life! It has a great structure and amazing tutors who truly takes the time out of their day to guide you through your journey. I would highly recommend this program to anyone looking for help to pass the NCLEX. The money is worth it!!
Beth was the tutor that I got paired with and I wouldn’t have wanted it any other way!! At every session we had together, she worked very closely with me to make sure I understood the content along with learning how to use the strategies. By the time I took my test, using the strategies became a habit. Beth truly is the best!! I can never thank her enough or find anything in this world to give back to her to show her how thankful I am. I am a nurse today because of Beth!
I would also like to say a few words about Justine. Justine is an amazing person to have founded this NCLEX tutor program! I am so thankful for her hard work and dedication to helping people become a RN. She has worked so hard and still continues to find ways to improve her already wonderful program. Thank you, Justine, for everything you do for people who are trying to pass the NCLEX. Please continue to be yourself because there will always be someone out there looking for help.
Again thank you Justine, for your wonderful program and to Beth who was by myside through it all!!

I had just failed my NCLEX after taking it for the first time. I felt so defeated and didn’t know what to turn to or how to study differently. I had used Mark Klimek and UWorld and thought that was enough. Unfortunately, I learned the hard way that that is not the best way to get content when the NCLEX can ask you anything and requires you to have test taking strategies, all of which were lacking. On top of that, i have extreme test anxiety and it reached a peak when I took my NCLEX.
My professor from school recommended the NCLEX tutor. I immediately looked into it and instantly bought the Nugget Pages and signed up for tutoring.
I cannot say enough good things about Justine and this company! The Nugget Pages were a literal lifesaver to my second journey of studying. I went through every page and could clearly see how instrumental the book was in rebuilding my content with stuff NCLEX will actually ask!
I then was assigned Brian as my tutor (as Justine was incredible and got me in quickly)! Brian worked with me on building my test-taking skills and overall confidence. He was kind, patient, and incredibly knowledgeable. I really enjoyed our tutoring sessions as they didn’t even feel like a chore. He explained questions well and really worked hard to make sure I was ready. I truly think without Brian and the Nugget Pages, I wouldn’t have passed. In only 5 weeks I was able to pass as well because of these resources!
Because of this, I was still able to start my dream job and I have this company and people to thank!

After two attempts at the exam before working with Justine, she helped give me the confidence and necessary strategies I needed to pass the NCLEX!
I am so beyond grateful for her! She works with you individually to determine your strengths and weaknesses and was such a pleasure to work with! 100% recommend!

I could not have accomplished the NCLEX without my tutor Heather! She encouraged me right from the start. She believed in me in more ways than I could for myself.
I felt more prepared the second time around because of her analyzing skills and little tips! I am forever grateful for this program they have put together!”

I passed my NCLEX on my 6th attempt because of Beth, Justine, and The NCLEX Tutor program.
I tried Kaplan, Hurst, Uworld, Saunders, and Remar. I eventually realized I needed more structure, guidance, and someone to be honest with me about what I was missing and where my weak areas were. I couldn’t figure out where I was going wrong, but having Beth read through questions with me every week, help me create and stick to a study on plan, hold me accountable, and be honest with me yet still encouraging was a game changer.
My confidence improved through working with Beth, and her patience with me and her support meant more to me than she’ll probably ever realize. If it wasn’t for Beth, I wouldn’t be able to say I’m a nurse today.
I can’t recommend this tutoring program enough, if you’re questioning if it’s worth the money, yes, if it’s worth the time, YES, and if you’re questioning if it’s really different than the other programs out there, the answer is yes. The videos, the nugget pages, the one on one tutoring sessions, everything is so organized and cohesive. If you put the work in, stay consistent, and listen to your tutor, you’ll be so so glad you did.
The NCLEX Tutor program, Justine, and most of all Beth, changed my life and I am forever grateful to them.

I was 76 and out! I did NCLEX High Yield with Dr Z, I did 92% of my UWorld qbank and that was not enough for me. As a repeat test taker I needed to step out of UWorld zone to see if I was really ready for my exam. I first found Justine’s flashcards on Brainscape and I purchased that. Then I found her website and I took 12 to 15 sessions with Justine. Two days later after my last session of tutoring I took my NCLEX (07/09/22). Because of Justine’s strategies and my interaction of one on one with her I was able to pass my boards at 76 questions. Thank you professor for your patience, dedication and for helping me to achieve my dreams.

I’m a repeat NCLEX test taker! What I did different the 2 nd time around, I came across a YouTube video of a someone talking about the “Nuggets Pages” and they were talking about how it was well written and well put together. Well, I bought it! It made everything make since.
I was all over the place with NCLEX buy this and that. The Nugget Pages caught my eye and when it arrived, I looked through it and loved how well the content was straight to the point and looking at the pictures and charts. I did do a review with another company and a Qbank as well. I was still missing something. I even tutored with other companies, and they just were in it for the money.
Long story short. I was really amazed at how much I did not know or remember with the test that is given by Justine! You would be surprised at yourself. So, I saw that this company offered tutoring and I saw a lady who went to the same University as myself and I knew I was on the right path. I signed up and asked for her to be my tutor. I got a call and we set up our first meeting and I loved it.
Jennifer and Justine are both awesome, I wished I would have known about this while in school this would have been very beneficial to me and saved me a lot of hours and sleepless nights. The Nuggets Pages accompanied with a tutor “game changer”. My tutoring was really customized to fit me! Content was my problem. Once I got my plan, I dedicated my time to my plan and stuck with it.
I met with my tutor Jennifer as the plan instructed and I was breaking down questions using the strategies given to me. Most importantly I really understood now what the question was asking. I went all the way back to the beginning “the basics” and worked my way up bridging the gap of lost content.
Now I took my exam and passed and will be working in the ICU department as a new grad RN, BSN. So many thanks to Jennifer and Justine.

My name is Rylee and I graduated in May of 2021 with my Bachelors in Nursing. I have never been a good test taker which has broken my confidence from the start of nursing school. I took the NCLEX a total of five times, and on the sixth time I was able to pass thanks to Justine, my tutor Beth, and the nugget pages!
I highly recommend this program to any repeat test taker who is struggling with content as well as strategies. I wish I would have found these two lovely ladies sooner! My cousin reached out to Justine and she called me to discuss where to go with the program. She was so sweet and made me feel so comfortable, even though I was so beaten down. She paired me up with Beth and I could not have been more excited.
Beth reached out to me via email and even called me to introduce herself and set up a time to meet. We met a total of ten times. Beth allowed me to choose what content and practice questions I wanted to go over based on the nugget pages. I loved how much freedom they provided me, however Beth provided so much structure with the content I chose for the week. I always struggled with the idea of a tutor because I did not want to feel belittled or as if I was not good enough. However, that was not the case with this program. Beth made me feel incredibly comfortable with each lesson and taught me so many strategies I was able to apply.
I was SO excited when I found out that I had passed with 75 questions! Both Beth and Justine followed up with me when I emailed them my results. Thank you for everything!

My name is Cam and I graduated in December 2021 from an accelerated nursing program with my BSN. I didn’t pass my NCLEX twice before going to see Justine. I was so frustrated and unsure what I was doing wrong. I felt discouraged after the endless amount of practice questions I was doing and content videos I was watching.
I went to her website to figure out what the issues were and developed test taking strategies that allowed me to think and approach the NCLEX questions like I never have before. I purchased the nugget pages book and got started tutoring with Lindsey. We were able to come up with a study plan so I could retake the exam and pass my third time so I can start my job on time. Every tutoring session was incredibly helpful and gave me more confidence going into the exam the third time. You know what they say: “Third times a charm.” I was able to compliment the videos Justine created with questions from the Nursing Mastery App that Justine and Lindsey suggested. I was all in and ready to pass.
Don’t ever be afraid to ask for help. Reaching out and hiring a tutor was not the easiest thing for me, but looking back it was a great decision to help me reach my goal of becoming a Registered Nurse. Very grateful for Justine and Lindsey.

After two failed attempts at taking the NCLEX, I decided to get a tutor. I was lucky enough to get to tutor with Beth. Beth was amazing and so knowledgeable.
The entire program is so well put together and the nugget book was worth the purchase! I did the 15 hour package and learned so many strategies that I believe is what led to me passing on the third attempt in only 75 questions.
If you are looking for a patient tutor, Beth is the person for you. If you are considering tutoring at all, I couldn’t recommend this program enough. I wish now that I would have done it the first time around.

My name is Adriana and I graduated with my accelerated Bachelors in Nursing in 2021. I failed my NCLEX several times and became hopeless and discouraged after each attempt. I found The NCLEX tutor on Youtube and enjoyed watching Justine’s videos and strategies on how she tackled NCLEX questions. I went to her website and joined the waitlist. I was so excited when I was assigned my tutor Beth. I also purchased Justine’s nugget pages that complimented my sessions that I highly recommend.
I absolutely loved tutoring with Beth. The study plan and strategies we applied were very structured, organized and extremely helpful. I enjoyed every tutoring session. It narrowed in on my focus for studying and what my gaps in knowledge were. Beth and Justine were always there for me whenever I had questions and ultimately helped identify my strengths and weaknesses. The classroom online had amazing resources as well, from Brainscape flashcards, videos and assessments. The assessments were challenging but so helpful in preparing for NCLEX.
If you struggle with test-taking like me, look no further. It was the best investment in my life. I am eternally grateful for Justine and Beth.

I just passed my NCLEX on my 3rd attempt and Justine is the one who got me there! As I was taking my NCLEX and I was going through each questions I felt so calm and confident because of Justine. I remember at questions 75 I was about the press next and I had this gut feeling that I had already passed and it would shut off because I really used her strategies combined with all the content I went over. And then I pressed next and my test shut off, it was such a great feeling. Even though I didn’t get my result at that point I already knew I had passed and I was right, I did!
The first time I took the NCLEX i used a different online tutoring company and I was a little disappointed with what I was paying for, but I didn’t know any better. After using The NCLEX Tutor I know that the other tutor was a complete waste of time and money. The other 2 times I took the NCLEX I studied and did practice questions but the difference between the first 2 times and 3rd time I took it is that I did not have the strategies that Justine teaches and engrains in you. Her strategies just make sense and the more you do questions using her strategies the easier the questions become. She is so knowledgable in nursing information and specifically in NCLEX content. Justine motivates you and works with you. Her nugget pages are priceless, they are straight forward and thorough without being overwhelming, I loved using them to study.
Each session Justine gives you her undivided attention, whether she is doing questions with you, reviewing specific content, or creating a study plan. While working with Justine I felt that she really cared about me and wanted me to do well. One thing that stands out to me about Justine over other tutors is that she never ended the sessions abruptly when our time was up, she would always give me an extra few minutes and never rushed me when we would come up with a plan till our next session.
Justine is the best tutor I have ever met, she is really special.
I am so grateful to have been recommended using Justine as my NCLEX tutor, i wish I has used her the first time I took my test!

There are no words to describe how forever grateful I will be to The NCLEX tutor.
I graduated nursing school a year ago, and personally I knew my school did not prepare me well enough to take my NCLEX so I knew this was going to be challenging, but not that challenging.
After graduation, I enrolled in Kaplan’s virtual class. Therefore, I did three full days of online review which was helpful, it taught me what they call the “Decision Tree”. So, I studied that for a few weeks or so and did some questions then took the test. I got all 145 questions, it was difficult but I thought I got all the questions so I have a chance. I was wrong, and devastated it took a full week to recover mentally and emotionally to start the whole roller coaster over again.
My second attempt, I had bought UWorld and Archer Review. Taking notes and making flashcards, and studying then studying some more. I even did a few days crash studying with a friend who already passed the NCLEX. I really thought I had it this time, I was so confident. I understood the main components/ideas for each disease or disorder, meds, how things worked together in the body and what affect they had when things changed. I understood both the big and small pictures of all different systems. However, another fail at 145 questions.
I literally did not know where to turn, and I mean I had no idea. The only thing I could think of was private tutoring. I had done the private class tutoring and that didn’t work so I was like I need one-on-one. I don’t care the cost, I just need someone to help me figure out why I am not passing this test when I understand the information. So, I headed to google, the first group I came upon was EZ NCLEX Tutoring they got in contact with me right away through chat, and said they had an immediate opening. However, I decided to keep looking and the next group
I came upon was The NCLEX Tutor. It seemed like a great little company and a decent amount of reviews. So, I was like okay The NCLEX Tutor it is; however, there was a waitlist. So, I put my name down, all I had to do was wait. But I was desperate to pass my NCLEX, so I was like I can’t wait so I signed up with EZ NCLEX Tutoring. Let me tell you BIG SCAM!!!!!!!!! HORRIBLE NEVER GO TO THEM!!!!
After 8 weeks of being scammed and my confidence draining, I heard back from The NCLEX Tutor founder, Justine. She called and talked to me for a half hour about what I had done, and really just let me vent. She suggested I go session by session, and see how things go and I could always add more with my same original price.
Justine assigned me a tutor, Lindsey she was new but Justine had great confidence in her. My first session I had both Justine and Lindsey in the session we went over questions by question, and they said you can totally do this we just need to work on a few things. Every session I felt more confident. Lindsey was so patient with me, and answered every question I would have she would give me suggestions on what to review and how to answer all types of questions. Justine’s tips on answering questions are amazing, and Lindsey taught me how to apply and use every tip. Justine’s nugget pages is the best review book, it is so organized and full of all the minimum information you need to know for the NCLEX. It has tips, tricks, pneumonics, and lots of pictures for visual learners.
Justine also has study plans and outlines for you to follow if needed that to correlate to her nugget pages. I found that so helpful when tutoring with Lindsey we would figure out what subjects to study together for the week, and also what nugget pages to study if I had trouble with a certain NCLEX subject such as Basic Care and Comfort. Justine also created voice over videos of her nugget pages, which allowed you to listen and read anytime you wanted.
Along with Justine’s program you get a three-month free access to Brainscape flashcards, another aspect I loved of her program. These flashcards included what I felt like everything from every single nugget page. I rewrote all her flashcards…. Over 3,000 and reviewed them which I found extremely helpful, the concepts just ended up sticking with me easier that way.
My tutor Lindsey, was incredible she would answer any question I had good or bad. She really became the person I relied on for confidence and knowledge all things NCLEX. I came out of ever session feeling better, even my parents could tell the difference in me after every session. During my time tutoring with Lindsey, I lost my grandpa and that really took a toll on me and Lindsey was so supportive and was very blunt with saying we need to push your date back a week or two. She could tell just over Zoom how I needed that extra time, how stressed and overwhelmed I was but she was always thinking what was best for me to accomplish my goal.
Lindsey and Justine were ALWAYS in constant contact with each other to personalize your tutoring needs and to keep assessing your needs. Lindsey really went above and beyond to be there for me when I needed her the most. I really appreciated this because towards the end, I was unsure if I was ready and I knew I couldn’t go through not passing again. But Lindsey would reassure me that Justine and her thought I was ready. And they were right, I passed at 145 questions!! I was so thrilled and ecstatic, I was finally a nurse, and I really couldn’t have done it without finding The NCLEX tutor.
Essentially, Justine has really just thought out this whole program on what will make it easiest for her students and her tutors to accomplish the end goal of passing the NCLEX. Throughout this program, you feel a real sense of family standing with you through the process wanting you to succeed and cheering you on. I will forever be grateful for what the NCLEX program, Justine, and Lindsey did for me, they are truly the reason I passed my NCLEX.

JUSTINE!!!!! I think Beth already contacted you and let you know I PASSED. Beth is the only person I have told so far; I think I am still in disbelief and hoping it’s not just a dream. I think I have checked the NMBON 10 times. I can’t thank you enough for the program you have created, the book, the flashcards and most importantly the most amazing, supportive, smart, kind and patient tutor/cheerleader!! I feel beyond blessed to have been set up with Beth and I just can’t thank you enough. You and Beth helped me make my dream a reality and I am so beyond grateful.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart and soul!!

Heather, thank you so much for being an awesome tutor by helping me apply the test-strategies to the questions and getting me to stop overthinking things hahaha. Thank you guys just for being nice and so helpful with the whole process.

My name is Wendy and I graduated with my Bachelors of Nursing in 2020. I have been working as a RPN for 7 years prior to writing my exam but for some reason I struggles to pass the NCLEX.
I was a repeat test taker, with each failed attempt making me feel more and more like a failure. A friend once told me that I needed to stop looking at failing this exam as failure. I was told “It’s not failure, you just learned the answers to the wrong questions.” It was this message of support that lead me to Justine’s tutoring Service. Justine and my tutor Beth, had faith in me right from the beginning. Through their assessments we were able to determine that I struggled most with testing strategies.
Each week we reviewed content with a focus on specific strategies for answering NCLEX style questions. Being able to talk out my rationales with Beth helped me gain the confidence I needed, by ensuring me that, I was on the right track with my thinking and assessments. I am so happy to announce that I have passed The NCLEX on my 4th attempt and I am confident that I would not be saying this to you today if I did not have the help and support for both of these ladies.
I would recommend their services to anyone studying for the first time or to anyone who is a repeat test taker like myself. I can promise you that you will not be disappointed.

Thank you to the best tutor, Justine at The NCLEX TUTOR. Justine helped me through a 16 month of nursing program and the NCLEX. Switching career to nursing was not an easy decision. During the program and the NCLEX, it was challenging.
Justine’s tutoring helped me with understanding testing strategies, contents, many things. We completed several sessions. When it was time for the NCLEX, she tutor me again. Her study plan and calendar for prepping for the NCLEX was GREAT and EFFECTIVE. I was able to pass the NCLEX and start nursing residency.
To me she is not only my tutor, also a mentor. Mentor who is always willing to help and guide you to be the best RN and person. Thank you Justine for helping and your continue support through this journey.
By the way, I was the first person to buy her amazing NCLEX book. The book make easy utilize through school and the NCLEX. THANK YOU!

I wouldn’t have been able to pass my NCLEX on my second attempt without the help of Justine and my tutor Beth. They created a customized study plan based on my own needs and prepared me in a way that I would not have been able to do on my own.
Beth was an amazing tutor and very helpful in teaching not only vital information but throughly explaining test taking strategies as well.
Justines nugget pages are fantastic and I highly recommend using it study. Because of them, I can finally call myself a RN!
Again, thank you for everything and now I can officially start my journey as a nurse!

I could not be more thankful for all of the help my tutor, Beth, gave me! Because of the knowledge and confidence I gained from her, I was able to pass the NCLEX in 75 questions.
I couldn’t have done it without her! She always came to our sessions with such a positive attitude and I truly felt that she cared about my success. The study plan she created put me on the right track and the Nugget Pages were also amazing to help learn content that might seem overwhelming.
Very excited to say that I am now an R.N.

After trying THREE different tutors (Mark Kilmec, Kaplan Nursing, and Think NCLEX) I found Justine and she was by far the best tutor of all!
After studying for almost 6 months with the other programs and still not passing I decided to try Justine’s program and it was the best decision I’ve ever made for my future. Her one on one tutoring is really a game changer when prepping for the NCLEX. She breaks down questions with you and really dives deep into the thought process behind picking the right answer and showing you how to use strategies to get to that right answer. The one on one tutoring coupled with her AMAZING nugget pages was worth every penny.
I absolutely hate pharmacology and the nugget pages really broke them down into a format that made it really easy for me to remember. All of the other content in the book was amazing as well and definitely helped me brush up on commonly asked about topics on the NCLEX. I owe my future career as a nurse to Justine and her team!
If you are considering an NCLEX tutor do not hesitate to book with Justine she will change your life and confidence!

That is the first thought that comes to mind when I think about Justine! She is absolutely amazing!!! She truly cares and attempts to get to know you during your tutoring session. I already have severe test anxiety and add taking NCLEX to that mix, I was stressed beyond belief. I can’t even remember all the different types of NCLEX books, classes, study guides, and test-taking strategies books and classes I invested in to attempt to pass. I had already missed out on a job opportunity and was not allowed to continue my RN to BSN program until I passed boards. To say I was stressed and had so much carrying on this test, is putting it lightly. Then I found Justine!!!
At first I did the webinars, thinking that this would be like the other NCLEX test strategy classes I had already attempted. BOY WAS I WRONG!!
From the very first webinar, I knew I had wasted all my time and spent so much money on the other things I had tried.
I found Justin’s webinars just in time. I was coming down from using another program that I found very hard & challenging. It made me doubt not only if I knew my content, but also myself as a student and as I nurse. I had taken repeated CATs on this program all saying I would fail the NCLEX. I took some time to have a pity party for myself. I was going on 3 months of graduating and seeing all my friends and classmates pass, while I was over here with the probability of failing.
Finding Justine was a complete Godsend! The webinars, which I watched later since I work nights, helped me to see how and why I was answering questions wrong. I was also going over the nugget book, which helped me to fill in missing content.
My NCLEX was scheduled for the end of January, right before a Bachelorette weekend with my friends so I could either drown my sorrows or celebrate. The webinars ended at the end of November. I attempted to continue going over the nugget book and answer questions from my test bank on Board Vitals, but I noticed I was going back to my old habits of answering questions. I knew this would not work for me. So I reached out to Justine for tutoring at the beginning of January. She was amazing and with only a few weeks until my test, she worked with my crazy night schedule to met with me 1 or 2 times a week.
I really appreciated how she always helped to make me feel confident about myself. She never made me feel ashamed for missing questions or when I was going over why I picked the answer I did. She always gave me pointers and ended each tutoring session with positives that I did and things I needed to work on.
I remember my last tutoring session, it was a few days before my test. I wanted 1 more session and Justine kept reassuring me that I would do fine and it would all be great. She had no doubt that I would pass and her confidence in me helped me so much!
She was the 2nd person I text, right after my mom of course, with my good news. There really are not enough words to begin to explain how amazing Justine is. I am forever grateful to her that I can finally say I am an RN!

After hearing about everyone in my graduating nursing class pass the NCLEX on their first attempts, I thought for sure I would also pass. Unfortunately, that is not what happened.
I looked into different tutors (varsity, ez tutors), different question banks (Kaplan, uworld) , hard copy review books for content (saunders, hurst), anything I could think of to help me pass this exam. Nothing seemed to work. After taking all 145 questions on the exam three times, I felt lost and confused about why I could not pass this exam after being so close and still failing every time. I wanted to give up. I was beginning to lose hope of passing so I didn’t know why I should keep trying.
But then I found Justine, who to my surprise was the only thing I actually needed to succeed. She worked with me 1:1 for 14 one hour sessions via zoom. She made me read questions out loud so she could understand the way my brain works and individualize a study plan that best suited me, unlike the other tutoring platforms I tried that were generalized. She provided me with practice questions, covering every NCLEX topic as well as feedback to why certain answers were correct over others I may have chosen, taking the time to explain it to make sure I understood. She took the time to understand me and the way I learn and process information so I could retain the information and actually apply it. Most importantly, she taught me test taking strategies!
My biggest problem was not being able to identify how to properly answer the question based on the way NCLEX wants you to think. After learning and applying the strategies, I was able to get above a 70% on all 4 practice exams I took before my fourth NCLEX attempt (keep in mind before working with Justine, I was barely getting consistent 50% on practice tests). I also did review on my own with Nursing.com question bank to keep practicing and applying the strategies, which was helpful in increasing my test taking confidence and reducing my anxiety.
Thanks to Justine I was able to finally pass the NCLEX on my fourth attempt in 89 questions! I am forever thankful to Justine for taking the time to work with me and cater to my individual needs. She literally is the best at this! – Ashley

I greatly enjoyed the service I experienced with The NCLEX Tutor. The nugget pages are very bite size and was enough to use in a sustainable way along with other question bank services (in my case UWorld). Beth and Justine are the two best things that have happened to me, and I cannot thank them enough for giving me their precious time to help me though the process. I completed my education here in the US, but English is my second language and Beth was patient with me and teaching me to slow down especially when I make reading errors.
The day of the test, I was well rested, took 4 long breaks, and did not rush myself at all. It took me a little over 2 hours to complete the exam and passed in 75 questions. The not panicking when I saw similar questions, and I wrote down the test taking strategies down on the side and I went though 4 whiteboards. I feel very fortunate that I was able to find them and get the help that I needed. Now I am in a DNP program and I will continue to use the test taking strategies for all my tests moving forward.
Mahalo for all the help and thank you for having such an awesome service!

I tried various different study resources and none of them seemed to work for me. I am so glad that I chose to work with Justine. She is the best, hands down! I have always struggled with standardized testing, and Justine’s test-taking strategies were exactly what I needed. They helped me weed out the bad answers and narrow it down to the correct answers, especially with SATA questions. I loved that she was honest with me about content areas that I needed to study more, and that she used repetition during our sessions to help me remember the content that wasn’t sticking.
I highly recommend using her Nugget Pages book! It is very well organized and easy to follow. It is straight and to the point, which is exactly what you need when reviewing for the NCLEX. She has lots of mnemonics in the book that will help you remember difficult concepts.
Spend the money and don’t hesitate to work with Justine. She is WORTH it and will help you be confident and successful on your next NCLEX attempt.

I want to say a big thank you to Justine for her support towards my passing of the nclex-RN exam.
As an Internationally educated Nurse, I was lost in my nclex preparations. I tried to study on my own using Uworld, Hurst and Saunders and failed the Nclex on first try. I really needed help and reached out to a few friends to see if they could point me to some online resources and tutorials. Although the suggestions were helpful, none of them was able to meet my need. I continued my search online and that is where I found Justine. After my first conversation with her, I knew she was the one I have been looking for some time and so decided to go ahead with her tutorials.
Justine gave me the confidence and the knowledge I needed to write this exam. Since I had my nursing education in Africa with a different health context, it was difficult for me to tackle some of the questions. Justine taught me the strategies needed in solving questions. She also provided me with her NUGGET PAGES which was lifesaving. I had used other books initially but truly, all I needed was the NUGGET PAGES. In addition, her 12-week study plan helped me greatly. I also used the mastery app, archers and flash cards from brainscape which was recommended by Justine.
Besides the strategies provided by Justine, she is also very caring, patient, a great teacher and mentor. I love how she encourages you to keep pushing hard. Now here I am all happy because I passed my nclex.
Thank you, thank you, thank you so much, Justine. I will definitely recommend her to anyone seeking for help with Nclex.

Justine is by far the BEST tutor ever. Her professionalism, patience, love for teaching and expertise in her subject is above and beyond phenomenal. She is absolutely amazing!!
Justine’s positive reinforcement and encouragement exceeds all expectations.
She helped solidify my weakness and strengths. We built on my weaknesses and went over each disease state with pointing out important key points. She isolated important things for me to focus on. Overall it was a great experience and would highly recommend Justine!
I failed boards once and couldn’t understand what I did wrong because I knew the content. I was looking for a tutor and after looking at Justine’s reviews I signed up. The best decision I ever made; after 5 private sessions and attending Justine’s webinar, I took boards and was very comfortable. I PASSES BOARDS on second time. Thank you Justine’s from the bottom of my heart, I know I could not have done this without you!

I am finally a Registered Nurse! Thanks to Justine I was able to better understand the NCLEX style questions. I am grateful to have found her. She is by far one of the most devoted teachers that I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting. She makes sure to know what type of studying works best for you to ensure that she can explain the content in ways best suited for your learning style.
I would also recommend her book ‘Nugget Pages’; this condensed, yet very informative book helped me analyse each system and topic needed for the NCLEX exam. Her patience, dedication, honesty, encouragement and overall support gave me the extra boost of confidence that I needed in order to pass the exam.
If you are someone who is struggling with the NCLEX, I highly recommend reaching out to Justine, she is truly amazing at what she does!

I was never a good test taker throughout nursing school so going into this test. I just was not good with the type of questions that nursing school throws at you! However, after 5 TRIES, I passed the NCLEX!!!!
I would not have been able to pass the NCLEX without the help of Justine. I had tried just about every NCLEX study plan and still didn’t help me as much as Justine! She was able to help me more than all of the plans together! She is the best resource for this exam by giving me strategies I could use for every question to decrease stress while I was in there. I was recommended to her by a friend and choosing to work with her was the best decision.
You can pass the NCLEX and Justine is the person to help you get there!

I want to thank Justine for helping me build back my confidence which allowed me to push forward and finally pass. This was at a time when I was left so overwhelmed, defeated and wanted to give up.
I used every resource possible, including Kaplan, the Mark Klimek’s in person review, Saunders, and uworld!! Her one on one tutor sessions are a game changer. She is able to break down complex topics so any one can understand the details and shows you how to find the critical information to study & help prepare you for the tests.
She is truly an angel sent from above. Thank you Justine for believing in me and never giving up!

I was a repeat test taker, with six years out of school, and the constant feeling of defeat. Justine’s encouragement, patience, simplified content, and test taking strategies were the game changer for me and what carried me across the finish line.
Thanks to Justine I was able to regain my confidence and pass the NCLEX!

I took the nclex twice and was feeling hopeless and stuck,I felt there was no way out. So I decided to find a tutor. I found Justine website and read her reviews so I decided to try and say why not I tried everything else.
After talking to Justine and having the first session with her. I saw what I was doing wrong Justine helped me with not just knowing the content but how to apply what I know as well. Justine showed me that you don’t need to know everything to pass nclex. Her strategies of linking answers and looking for the killer answer for who do see first question and priority questions. helped me so much when I was stuck. Also what helped me was getting rid of extreme answers.
Justine was the guidance I needed to finally pass nclex. Thrid time I passed with 75 questions. I supplemented her nugget pages with the Saunders book for content. I recommend at least read the green boxes in the Saunders if you are pressed for time. I used saunders and the nclex mastery app. Remember content with strategy is key after sessions with Justine I felt confident with her content and strategies and understood how to approach nclex style questions.
Justine told me when it doubt go with your gut and that’s exactly what I did and I passed with 75. Thank you Justine I definently recommended her as a tutor she will give you the guidance you need to pass.

I had taken the test before I met Justine and reluctant to seek help from tutors because I don’t want to be embarrassed but Justine was amazing. She is ready to take you from where you are to the next level, test taken strategy was amazing.
Justine schedule plan and nugget pages make it easy to review, build up my contents level and recognized my weakness. I persistently using the test taken strategy to identify “killer answer” I used the strategies on several question bank such as Uworld, Nurseachieve (CAT), Saunders and Archer (assessment test/CAT) and did multiple questions. it was very helpful.
“I PASSED CLEAN OVER NCLEX”. Thank you Justine for your help to actualize my dream.

Shout-out also to Justine Buick, no words can express how thankful I am for your guidance and patience throughout the process. Thank you for always being honest and for always letting me know on the things that I should improve on. I really couldn’t done it without your guidance.
Thank you for always being so considerate that despite of the initial plan of 3 months of tutor sessions, it took 7 months for the preparation. You always consider your student’s pacing as well and that is what I really appreciate the most. Thank you for your unending patience and support until to the day of my exam. Thank you for teaching me the ‘things that I should know and concentrate on’ plus the ‘test taking strategies’ that you shared with me. It really helped me a lot in order to ace the NCLEX Exam.

Justine was the best thing that happened to me post grad!! I took the NCLEX twice before I started tutoring with her! I did about 6 sessions with her and it was amazing. I took the NCLEX with 145 questions both times, and then passed in 75 the third time around!
When I started with her, I felt super defeated, overwhelmed, and was so lost. I thought I was studying well on my own, but Justine really helped find a way that worked best for me. We went over strategies, questions, and different topics I needed help on. It was really nice to have someone make a schedule and hold me accountable! I also purchased her nugget pages!
I used her nugget pages and uworld qbank the most! I HIGHLY recommend Justine and if you are doubting it, don’t!! She will help you get through it and you can do it!! -Taylor”

Justine, Thank you so much for helping me PASS THE NCLEX! You gave me the confidence I needed to PASS NCLEX the 4th and final time!
After failing NCLEX three times, feeling like no resource I used would help me (Uworld & Kaplan) and just overall feeling defeated– I knew I had to do something different about my studying the 4th time around. I went online and started searching for tutors. I was hesitant, because I’ve never worked with a tutor in my life and was worried that it wouldn’t work out especially since it was on zoom, but after reading her awesome reviews by previous students, I knew she was the ANSWER. I was so excited!
While tutoring with Justine, I also used the NCSBN 7 week study plan (I totally recommend it & would recommend the 10 week study plan) to review content for the NCLEX. I also bought her Nugget Pages, its like a mini book of everything you need to know for NCLEX. For about two months, I put myself on a strict study schedule, with minimal distractions and met with Justine at least once a week. I booked 8 sessions with Justine, but I would highly recommend buying at least 10 sessions with her to really build the confidence and practice answering questions using the strategies that she teaches you.. No one will invest in your future like you will, so I invested in tutoring with Justine.
I had the best experience and my world changed when I finally passed the NCLEX.. If you are reading this-look no further(!) and finally book tutor sessions with Justine! She is so kind, smart, patient and the best NCLEX tutor out there!!!

The first time I took the NCLEX I failed in 60 questions. I was devastated. I had used every resource possible for my first attempt and anything recommended by my friends. I had too many resources. I spent months trying to figure out a solution or what I was going to do to pass this test.
So, I came across a YouTube video made by Dee N’ Dee about Justine. I was like that’s my door to passing this test. I sent Justine an email she didn’t have availability at the time, I decided to wait. When Justine sent me the email and told me she had an availability, I jumped at the opportunity.
Then a couple months later of hard work, I passed my NCLEX-RN on April of 2021 with 75 questions thanks to Justine. I followed her plan diligently, attended some of her webinars, and purchased her Nugget pages which is my golden resource!!! I will continue to use her Nugget pages as a new nurse grad and when I start working.

“I graduated nursing school in May and was eager to take the NCLEX soon after. Being that I was pregnant and expecting the baby’s arrival in August, I was in a hurry to get the exam over with. Although I had done well in nursing school and had taken several review courses, I was not confident enough that I would pass the NCLEX on the first try. While talking to a friend she mentioned Justine Buick had helped her after she had failed on her first try. I figured i would try reaching out and hoped for the best. I emailed Justine and she contacted me the next day and we made an appointment to meet. The meeting was the best thing ever. I learned how to answer questions using strategy as opposed to only using known content. We did questions together and formulated a study plan. Throughout studying I got overwhelmed several times. I emailed Justine and she encouraged me to keep studying and gave me tips and resources that were really helpful. We had 4 sessions together and I felt extremely confident a few weeks before my exam. I even rescheduled the exam date to take it earlier. When I came to the exam I sat down and thought “it’s as if I’m doing practice questions”. I went through each question using the strategies that I had been taught. For example- where am I and what kind of nurse am I? Is there a time frame? Are there any killer answers? These were just a few of the tricks that helped me eliminate answers. When I was left with 2 choices I would then think “which one has a better outcome?” And I would choose the best option. After 1 hour and 15 minutes and 75 questions, the computer shut off. I had passed the exam, thanks to Justine Buick for all the support and for giving me the confidence I needed to be successful.”

“When I initially took the NCLEX I went to Two-hundred and thirty questions, and I ran out of time. Luckily I found Justine. Justine thoroughly understood what areas I needed help in. She set up a plan for execution and it definitely led to success. I simply followed her instruction step by step. Her “nugget notes”, and “saunders” were of great help. Her guidance made the questions on the NCLEX very understandable, and clear. She made sure I was consistent with my work and comfortable with all types of questions. She went above and beyond to ensure I had the tools/knowledge needed to pass, also working me into her schedule. The 2nd time I took the NCLEX I passed answering only Seventy-five questions! I can not emphasize enough regarding what a great help, mentor, and tutor Justine was. I highly recommend her to anyone that is looking for the same results. PASS!!!!”

“I reached out to Justine after failing my NCLEX exam twice. I was unsure what I was doing wrong and why I couldn’t answer the questions right. Working with Justine helped to to break down the questions and understand what they were asking. She provides a safe environment where you both work to identify your weakness and develop strategies to address them. The one thing that really worked for me was developing lists of things I did not know when I got questions wrong, called nugget pages. It was extremely helpful in directing my learning. If you have the chance, attend a group seminar as it helps to learn with other people.”

“Whether you are first time test taker, a recent graduate, or have already taken the exam before, choosing to tutor with Justine will change your life. At first I was skeptical, but after emailing with her about her student pass rate and reading her online testimonials I decided to start tutoring with her. After a few sessions, I realized how I was answering questions had changed. It made me realize I had not had a strategy when answering questions, I was just answering them. Justine taught me test taking strategies and prioritization skills I know I will take with me throughout my career.
I took all of Justine’s med webinars and ECG lectures and she broke down the material in a way that was easy to understand and remember! She tailored our tutoring to my needs and what I needed to improve on. I am sure that without her help I would not have realized what I was doing wrong. She taught me about Nugget Pages which helped me focus. I was not sure if I would ever know enough content, or be prepared enough mentally for the NCLEX but Justine helped me build my confidence!
I also used the Saunders NCLEX book and U-World to pass on my second try!”

“After 4 years of completing nursing school and failing the NCLEX 3 times i knew that i had to change something. I had done Hurst Live, Hurst Online , Kaplan Online etc. You name it I’ve tried it. I decided to google to see what other alternatives were there so i came across Justine’s name. What drowned me to her was that she had helped a Canadian Student passed the CRNE in Canada (Canadian version of Nclex). Since my nursing degree was from Canada I reached out to her and told her my dilemma. She was booked and begged her to put me on her waiting list. Long story short , we did 14 sessions, 5 webinars and all of uworlds questions. If there is anybody out there reading this that needs help with passing Nclex this is your girl. She is the Nclex “god”. She got all the tools you need to help you pass if you willing to put in a little work. I was able to pass in 55mins with 75 questions. Did all that with 2 kids below 3 and if you counting my husband 3 kids lol. You know how men are. But on a serious note if i can do it you can. English is not even my first language. Now Justine I don’t think I can find the right words to thank you for what you have done for my family and I. God bless you and your family beyond measure. May He shine His face on you and Grant you all your heart desire. I thank you, thank you, thank you. Gods Blessings to you

Justine is the REAL deal. I graduated back in 2014 and finally passed my NCLEX exam May 2017, three years later! I was starting to give up on myself, exhausting all my options, feeling depressed, and hearing it from everyone, “When will you pass?” or “Are you even studying?” Being diagnosed with dyslexia sure didn’t make things any easier. It was only then, when God sent me an angel, Justine, to tutor me is when everything started to make sense. I’m not too sure how many sessions I had done but all I know is that every cent I paid was 100% worth it. Don’t get me wrong, you can’t just show up and expect her to do all the work, you have to put in the time. I did 75 questions a day (on Uworld) and reviewed for a good 4 to 5 hours. I also bought the new Saunders book and went over the chapters Justine assigned. My test scores were in the low 40-45 range but towards the end it jumped to an average of 65. My advice is to find out what works for you to retain content because this is very important. For me, it was watching videos and taking notes. Watching and listening to Justine’s webinars really helped a lot. Don’t give up because like me, you will get that PASS on your test with the help of Justine. Thank you again Justine for all your help, you have certainly changed my life and I can’t thank you enough.
P.S. If you need a prayer before you test look up Saint Joseph of Cupertino.”

“Prior to contacting Justine, I did a lot of research for help tackling my NCLEX after I had taken it a few times and was unsuccessful. Being that I felt like I was close to passing, I wasn’t sure where to begin. Justine is very helpful, knowledgeable, and professional from the get-go. Not only did she help me gain confidence, but she also helped me PASS. I am so thankful that I decided to get out of my comfort zone and reach out to Justine. She is nothing less than amazing! Thanks again Justine!”

“To whomever may be researching a tutor-
I am not the type of guy for writing reviews, look at my amazon account, a billion purchases and no reviews! BUT, I passed my NCLEX recently, thanks in LARGE part to Ms. Justine Buick.
I had a solid knowledge base that I did not necessarily believe in. I had hired a tutor before Justine and failed the NCLEX in 265 questions. We studied a TON of content, reviewing 200+ questions a week, 50 or so with the tutor, then 150+ I was “assigned” during the week. Brutal and demoralized would be how I describe those 5+ hours of testing after all that studying.
I have quite intense test anxiety, so having gotten that far, I felt that may be the closest I ever get to passing, and it was hard to see the positive in the situation. I did not want to hire another tutor as it obviously hadn’t worked previously.
My Dad did a LOT of research and came to me with Justine’s website and description of her approach. Her approach was different, not in a negative way, but in a way that made me think it may work. It was more test strategy based as opposed to content based. We have ALL gotten through nursing school somehow, right? So why review content since a lot of the NCLEX is very new and likely never covered in school. The testing strategy is key, not the content.
Like I said, I had doubts about my content knowledge going into my sessions with Justine, but they were quickly put to rest. I passed the NCLEX in the minimum 75 questions after 7 quick sessions with Justine. After each session I got a recap and feel for where we stand. Before my NCLEX she let me know whether I was ready or not; hint- I was ready.
It is nice to be proved wrong about something that can really debilitate your life- Like failing the biggest exam of your life. NOTHING matches the feeling on conquering that negativity. And this is from a guy who doesn’t tend to write reviews. Considering I changed my life by hiring Justine, and now the world is my oyster… I would do it again, knowing that my stress level would be much much better, and knowing that I CAN conquer seemingly impossible tasks.
Now, I have less hypertension worries since my heart rate and blood pressure are back down to normal levels. Don’t do that to yourselves. If you find yourself on this page LOOKING for a tutor, you are like me… Don’t hesitate, ease your mind, hire someone to help conquer this road block in front of your chosen career. There is no shame in getting help from time to time. I wish I thought like that a long time ago. YOU can pass the exam, you just may need some tweaking. Get that friendly nudge, that little bit of help before you pay for the exam numerous times. Get that blood pressure and sense of accomplishment sooner. Justine WILL help, and be very honest and forthcoming from the get go. Help yourself. Good luck to anyone reading this. You can and will get there. Enjoy the career you have ahead!

“I started out using Hurst, Kaplan, Lippincott, and other NCLEX review books and practice questions, but I was not able to pass the NCLEX. In fact, I failed a couple times. I was discouraged, but then I was lucky enough to find Justine. Justine has a great way of attacking NCLEX style questions and she gave me all the tips and strategies to get the questions right. Unlike all the other reviews that I completed, Justine’s nugget pages made sense to me and helped me organize my studying. I can’t explain in words about how great I felt after passing the NCLEX. Justine truly cares about the students she works with and wants them to succeed and become great nurses. I would highly recommend that people work with Justine before taking the NCLEX, that way you will surely pass the first time and not have to go through the stress of failing!! Thanks again for everything Justine. I am officially an RN and I owe it all to you!!”

“I finished nursing school December of 2013, I was so excited to have finished and finally was getting ready to take the NCLEX – RN. I studied my butt off went to take the test and came out of the testing center knowing that I did not pass. Went home did the Person vue trick which went straight to the credit card page I was devastated and I refused to believe it so I waited until I got my results and it said “FAILED”. This went on for another three times with the same results, nothing had changed except for the amount of questions that I would receive and now its 2016. After the failure of my fourth attempt my sister tired of me crying on the phone to her did some research and called me with her plan. “Justine Buick, the NCLEX tutor” I went online and looked her up, her pass rate was awesome and there was testimonials on her site from people like me. So I had my sister contact her,Justine was so nice to work with she taught me the correct way of looking at NCLEX questions and she worked with my availability. I did everything she told me to do, finally I scheduled my test in January of 2017 and went to take it. This time I didn’t have the “I’m so scared” feeling that I always had. The only thing I felt was “I can’t wait to get this over with”, when I completed the NCLEX I went home and did the Pearson vue trick and got the good pop up, I was so excited I called my sisters and told them and I waited until I got the quick results to call Justine and tell her.She was so happy for me, I never could have passed without her. I really wish that I had contacted her far in advance because it would of saved me loads of tears.”

“When I was given Justine’s name I had failed the NCLEX multiple times at 76 questions and at 265 and I had also been out of school for about three years. My confidence was practically non-existent. I had taken the ATI review, Kaplan Review, studied hundreds of questions, purchased multiple books and apps for my phone. From my first session with Justine I knew that I was given such a gift by being put in touch with her. I always knew the areas I struggled in but never knew how to really target my studying. Justine introduced me to the Nugget Page, kept me focused, was able to recognize my strengths, weaknesses and knowledge deficits. Justine offered me so many resources and so much feedback during my 13 weeks with her! She truly is amazing at what she does and honestly I would have not had the confidence to retest without her help. Justine made me work hard, never simply giving me answers to questions I got wrong; instead guiding me, giving me tools and strategies so that I would be able to answer the question myself. On my latest and final attempt at the NCLEX I pass in 86 questions, Justine was my second phone call (right after my mom). She was so genuinely happy for me reaching my goal, and I honestly would not have gotten to this point without her help. I would recommend her without reservation to anyone I come into contact with. Justine is one of the most talented educators I have ever met, I will never be able to express my gratitude to her in words.”

“Thank you Justine for helping me get through NCLEX-RN. She helped me break down the questions in a more understanding way for me. I learned how to answer select all that apply questions. She quickly helped me be able to recognize my weaknesses and strengths and work through my struggles. Justine guided me through this journey. I followed what she had told me and it worked. She made my dream come true, I’m finally an RN.”

“Justine single-handedly made my dreams come true. Our first session together I got exactly 0 out of the 6 questions right. Instead of making me feel bad or incapable, Justine really helped me break down these questions and understand what they were really asking. Justine showed me that I was making up information and not understanding what the questions were actually asking, something I was completely unaware of before I met with her. The biggest thing Justine taught me is how to think through questions correctly, which turned into me being able to answer questions correctly. In nursing school they always told us that it was so important to do thousands of questions before NCLEX. But after meeting with Justine I strongly believe this is only helpful if you are answering questions the correct way. Justine helped me pass NCLEX in 75 questions on my 4th try, after my last try had been failing with 75 questions. Not only is Justine extremely smart and helpful, she is also very kind and encouraging. This is especially helpful to keep your confidence up, which is important for NCLEX. I can’t recommend Justine enough!! Worth every penny!!”

“As a nursing graduate who wrote the N-CLEX three times, there was a lot of pressure writing it a fourth time. This was my last chance to pass this thing! I did some research about tutors, and stumbled across Justine’s website. She was by far, the most reputable tutor for me to use based on her credentials. I had been studying for about a month, and had a few weeks left, and would to get the most I could out of a tutor. We spent about two-three days on average per week going over questions and really focusing on how to answer the questions correctly. After about three weeks of tutoring with her, it was time. I had to go write this dreaded exam that I was so terrified of. After writing 130 questions, and 5 hours later……I PASSED! Justine was amazing. She really spent the time to help me understand how to answer the questions, and really helped me develop the proper skills to write the N-CLEX. She is so easy to discuss questions and concerns with, and really does want you to do well and pass the N-CLEX. I HIGHLY recommend anyone and everyone to use Justine in their study methods; as you can see, she DEFINITELY helped me out a lot! Thanks Justine!”

“I have no words to thank you for helping me get to this point! After failing to pass the NCLEX twice, I thought I will never become a nurse. I was so doubtful and didn’t know how to help myself. It was only with your kindness and skill that I learned how to master NCLEX-style questions. Thankfully I passed my NCLEX and have finally received my RN license! Thank you again for bring the most amazing person and tutor that you are!!!!!”

“Dear Justine, I was an RN student in your med-surg clinical. Just passed my NCLEX with 75 questions! Exam was very hard and when I studied for it I remembered our practice questions during clinical and your tips about how to answer those questions! I think it was incredibly helpful! My favorite part was learning how to read EKGs. I reviewed it day before exam because I heard it could be on it! I just want to say THANK YOU for your teaching and helpful hints about NCLEX!”

“Can’t thank Justine enough for all her help! Being a first time test taker I didn’t really know what to expect on the NCLEX-RN so seeking out Justine after a referral from a friend was my first choice. When I first contacted her she was all booked up, but then when she said that she could fit me in, I was beyond excited. In just 4 sessions, she was able to give me strategies and build my confidence in questions, it was really helpful when she had me think out loud! She’s awesome, couldn’t have done it without her! Thank you again!”

“I scrolled down my phone and it dropped from my hands as I yelled, “I PASSED!!!!!” I felt like I won the Mega Millions lottery. After two attempts- the first with 265 questions and a second in 75. I was utterly confused and for lack of a better word, “Pissed!” How did I do worse if I studied more the second time? A friend recommended Justine, so I figured, “Why not?” We met twice a week for three weeks. Having one-on-one sessions going over NCLEX strategies gave me a step by step framework for approaching the questions that I was able to apply towards the test. When I took the test, it was as ifJustine’s voice was guiding me. It proved to be the key difference because I went from failing in 75 the second time to passing in 75 the third/final time. Reach out to Justine as soon as possible because she will provide the road map to success in passing the NCLEX. Mahalo nui loa Justine for helping me pass the NCLEX beast.”

“First, I want to start off by saying Justine is an amazing person and an excellent tutor! From the very moment you talk to her,it is easy to see how passionate she is about helping others pass the NCLEX. Before I met Justine I struggled with passing the NCLEX. I tried HURST and Saunders but none of those seemed to help. I lost all hope of passing but knew I couldn’t give up. That’s when I found Justine and tutoring with her was the best decision I ever made. Justine is very dedicated to helping her students. As long as you study and do your part, you can pass with the help of Justine. She goes above and beyond for her students to get them the resources they need. She also has great strategies to answer any question the NCLEX may give you. Justine is very knowledgable about the NCLEX and different topics you come across in nursing. She is also very easy to talk to, gives great advice, and helps you attain the confidence you need to pass. After having 9 sessions with Justine I was ready to retest. My computer shut off at 88 questions and I was so nervous! Two days later I received the good news that I passed!! It was pleasure working with you! And thank you again for all your help!”

“I had taken the NCLEX-RN 5 times and failed. Each time it got worse and worse the further along I was out of school. I had tried EVERY thing out there, online courses, every book, and spent a TON of money on things that were just not helping me. I struggled with test anxiety and I felt I needed something more than just studying the content I already knew. I stumbled upon Justine’s information and thought “why not? lets try this out!” So I emailed her and we hit it off! Our first skype session I KNEW she was going to help me. I learned how to answer the question, and test taking strategies that I desperately needed and couldn’t get out of a book.Justine- you helped me gain my confidence back when I had completely wanted to quit my dreams of becoming a nurse. You gave me all the tools I needed to pass this biggest obstacle of my life. I can’t thank you enough for all of your help, and believing in me when I didn’t believe in myself. I am forever grateful for you! I FINALLY passed 4 years after I graduated nursing school and the 6th time of taking it. I also passed this 6th time in ONLY 75 QUESTIONS!!!!!!! Do NOT give up!”

“I failed the NCLEX twice and I had taken Hurst Review and tried NCSBN but The NCLEX Tutor is what helped me pass the third time around!!! A friend recommended her to me & I immediately emailed her for help!! I met with Justine once a week for about 13 weeks. Justine has so much knowledge about the NCLEX and all the different strategies to answer every kind of question. There was nothing we didn’t cover that wasn’t on the NCLEX.She is super friendly, easy to talk to and it’s easy to see how truly passionate she is in helping you pass. If you dedicate your time and do your part in studying, she can and will help you pass. I thought the NCLEX was impossible, but Justine helped me prove otherwise!!! Thank you so much!!!! You are seriously the best!!”

“Justine is one of the most amazing teachers I’ve ever worked with. It’s very hard to find someone that motivates you, keeps you in check, and inspires you to get things done! I didn’t have much luck testing for the NCLEX, and I really didn’t understand what I was messing up on. Within the first Skype session I had with Justine, she pointed out the problem! We had 5 classes in total and she entirely changed my thinking process and showed me what I was missing while reading the questions. With dedication, following her technique, and doing lots and LOTS of questions, I finally felt confident. A feeling that I never felt before walking into that room. And well… I passed!!! I am so thankful for Justine and I swear by her work. She’s a brilliant caring teacher and I’d highly recommend her!! Thank you again Justine!!!”

“Justine is a kind, caring tutor. Very savvy in new methodology and technology, with an effective NCLEX formula to pass the exam. I had strong reservation about continuity when my daughter took lessons from LA via Skype with Justine. Well even when Boston suffered severe winter storms this year, no interruption in program! She also has great empathy for students and is most supportive. A great leader that nurtures student’s confidence.”

“After graduating nursing school, I used Hurst to study for NCLEX. I took the test a month later and didn’t pass! I was devastated but got back to studying, this time using Kaplan! I admit I didn’t fully complete the course, but still decided to take the test again, and failed…again! I was so upset and didn’t know what to do! I live in Louisiana and we don’t have any NCLEX tutors here! So my mom went to google and found Justine! We started skyping every Saturday morning. After working with Justine for 2 months, with her help in testing strategies, and learning the content, I felt it was time to battle the NCLEX again! Third times a charm, right? Well for me it was!! I passed the NCLEX with 92 questions!!I could not have done it without the help of Justine!!Now I am proud to say that I am Lisa Adams, RN!!!”

“After three failed attempts at the NCLEX-RN I was losing hope and very discouraged on where to go for help in passing this test. I found Justine online and after meeting with her for the first time I already had hope that this time was going to be different. She was very easy to get in touch with and worked with me to create tutoring sessions that fit both of our schedules. Justine was able to help me make a plan for studying and kept me in the right direction. She was able to help me critically think to answer questions, which was what I was lacking in most. With the help of the strategies she provided me I was already improving my practice test scores is just a few sessions. Justine provided me with many different resources to use and guide me through the studying process. With her help, I can now officially say I am a Registered Nurse in Massachusetts andhighly recommend her!”

“I took the exam for the first time three weeks after graduation and didn’t pass. I was absolutely devastated. Late October came around and I was ready to take the NCLEX again. A couple of days later I found out that I did not pass the exam, yet again. I knew this time around I should try a completely different strategy and find out what I am doing wrong. I looked up NCLEX tutor online and found Justine Buick. We met once a week for two hours and went over the exam and strategies for all the types of questions seen on the exam. I gradually began to see myself improving and getting more questions right than I ever had. About 5 weeks later I was scheduled to take the NCLEX for the third time. Using the strategies and everything Justine and I had talked about, I passed the exam with 265 questions. It was the happiest day for me and I could not have done it without the help of Justine.”

“Justine helped me after a first failed attempt at the NCLEX. Thanks to her help, I successfully passed on my second try and this was after working with Justine for less than 2 months. I am now a Registered Nurse and am a lot more knowledgeable and have a better understanding of concepts thanks to her help. I couldn’t have done this without her and I highly recommend her tutoring services. She accommodated my schedule and returned my emails and calls swiftly. She was extremely professional, polite but yet stern enough that she didn’t allow me to slack and pushed me to work hard.She gave me the confidence I neededand checked on me to make sure I was accomplishing the tasks that we both set forth. Prior to working with Justine, I felt like I was studying everything and anything and had no direct plan of action. She was able to set me on the correct course and I proved successful. Thank you!”

“Justine’s passion to tutor for the NCLEX is outstanding.
I graduated from nursing school in December of 2014, and planned to take the NCLEX in January. I started to study and realized I needed help. Luckily, I found Justine! When I first met her, she started off by saying “I love tutoring for NCLEX, this is my favorite thing!” After one, 90 minute session, I improved my practice test scores by 5% and by the end of a few session I improved by 10%, then I passed my test. I went for 6 or 7, 90 minute sessions. She doesn’t just care about giving you the strategies and the knowledge to pass the test, she cares about you as an individual. She gave me the confidence I needed to pass this exam. Justine makes it fun to study for the NCLEX and makes you want to practice questions. I can’t say enough good things about Justine and her ability as a tutor. She has a great price and works with your schedule. I sincerely enjoyed the hours I spent with Justine!”
