NCLEX Prep Program Update

April 2, 2019

Learn more about the two big improvements that your students will see in their Kaplan NCLEX-RN Course...

As you know, the National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) announced that there are no short-term changes to the NCLEX-RN® examination, and if Next Generation NCLEX (NGN) is officially adopted by NCSBN, we won’t expect to see NGN implemented until at least 2022-2023.

While there are no test changes this year, we at Kaplan still performed our annual review and update of our current NCLEX-RN prep programs and made improvements based on student and faculty feedback. There are two big improvements that your students will see in their Kaplan NCLEX-RN Course:

1 - More NCLEX-Like Question Formats and Expanded Explanations

We meticulously combed through our 3-day NCLEX-RN Review Course to ensure questions are NCLEX-like, and strengthened explanations on the questions where students need the most help. We revamped our in-class presentation decks accordingly, and annotated every question to increase student engagement—especially for our students who are visual learners.

2 - New, Streamlined Sessions on the NCLEX Channel

We have also made improvements to the NCLEX Channel, where your students have 24/7 access to stream live and recorded NCLEX content and test-taking strategy sessions. Session length has been increased from 30 minutes to 50 minutes—in direct response to the feedback we have received in student surveys about the pace of sessions.  We will continue to develop and launch approximately three new Channel sessions every month.

These improvements have already gone into effect for any Kaplan NCLEX-RN Courses scheduled to start March 15th or later.
