Now that I am Board Certified in both Nursing and Paralegal I have thought about taking the Registered Nurse exam again. I know I need to have good hands on skills so I can competently provide nursing care. The Paralegal exam is not so important because we do the same things and most of the times the same documents are used. The nursing exam is probably going to be a waste of my precious time and my efforts in getting my certificate.
I know I need to be knowledgeable about many areas of medicine including pharmacology, anatomy, physiology, medical terminology, statistics and medical law. Taking these courses would really help me on my exam. However, I don’t know where to start.
I see there are a lot of Courses available online. Some are free and some you have to pay for. I was able to find free courses on the internet. I went through the Courses offered at the University of Phoenix. I had a ton of fun taking the classes and I think they were really helpful.
Once I got done with the courses I started to think about taking the actual exam. I read some reviews about the exams and I didn’t know what to expect. I didn’t know how long it was going to take and I didn’t know if I was qualified or not. The exam is administered by the Board of Nursing, and they conduct interviews with you and other examinees. It is going to be a long process.
I decided to get some guides on how to prepare for the teas test. My favorite guide was by Robert T. Kaplinger, RN. He created a program called NNAAP. It was a comprehensive guide for anyone who wants to take the exam and be prepared for it. It has helped me out a lot when I was preparing for the NCLEX exam.
I actually started taking some of the classes in June. I know it can be a hectic time especially when you have to get all your classes finished at the same time. You will learn about what to expect on the exam and how you will be tested. Most of the courses I looked into covered the information that was given in Dr. Kaplinger’s NNAAP course.
I learned that most people will get an easy ride on the exam since the teas test is designed so that the exam can be taken in two days. You are not getting into a lot of details in the first few classes and just focusing on answering questions and passing the exams. This is not the case for the Dr. Kaplinger’s course. It is a detailed program that covers all of the areas that you will learn on the NCLEX. After I got through all the material in the first three weeks, I took the next three weeks off and I have not looked back.
Now that I learned how to prepare for the teas test, I think that I am ready. I think that I have all the information that is needed to pass. The other thing that I want to do is to take practice tests on my computer and go over all of the areas that I learned from the NCLEX. I think this will help me be more prepared than if I studied from scratch. I believe that studying and learning from scratch will give me some information and a short but effective test. However, if I learn from the top-rated programs, then I will be prepared for the NCLEX.
If you want to learn how to prepare for the teas test, then you need to start studying for it as soon as possible. Make sure that you buy all of the books that are necessary for the NCLEX. You also need to get a good study guide because that will help you learn faster and get through the test easier. There are many review websites online that will help you get an idea of what you will be doing before you take the actual test.
One of the best ways to prepare for the NCLEX is to get through all of the required reading before you take the actual test. This way you can learn everything that you need to know before going to take the test. Another thing that you can do is to make sure that you know how to breathe properly before you go to take the exam. Breathing properly will help you get better focus and better nervousness before the test. You will also be able to know when you have enough of these things and when you need to have more.
