NCLEX Guide and the Online Approach to Study

Dec 28th 2015 at 8:52 PM

A doctor is the only person accredited for saving lives, but there is someone else who, in most cases is ignored, a Nurse. Nurses are as much responsible for saving lives as paramedics.

Nursing is the art of restoring the health of patients. Most people believe that it is an unappreciative job and yet there are nurses working almost 18 hours a day to save lives. Becoming a nurse requires dedication and the willingness to put your life behind the ones who needs care and attention. It also requires a good education and training by a reputed institute.

With the influx of digital mediums for almost everything, several online courses have been introduced. Aspirants have been taking online education to appear for the NCLEX (National Council Licensure Examination).

The purpose of NCLEX is to determine whether a candidate is eligible for an entry-level nursing practice or not. It is a practical test unlike the ones in the nursing schools. NCLEX questions and answers are more application based and test the knowledge one gains in the nursing school, and judge them whether they can use them in real life situation or not.

The test has the basic purpose of testing the candidate’s knowledge, practical skills and abilities to attend the patient’s needs. They are usually multiple choice questions in various categories including Safe and Effective Care, Health Promotion and Maintenance, Coordinated Care, Psychosocial Integrity, Basic care and comfort, Reduction of risk potential, etc.

Study material for these courses is available online, along with properly structured tutorials. Online courses might prove worthy to those who cannot afford to attend the classes physically or live far away in remote areas without the access of good institutes. Some tutorials provide just the study material whereas some provide step-by-step guidance going through the study material. The prices vary accordingly, but most online programs are seen to be affordable.

Benefits to studying online:

  1. Course accessibility is 24 hours, so you can study any time you want

  2. Availability in remote areas

  3. Comfortable environment, because you will be at home in your comfort zone

  4. Since the tutorials are online, you can repeat the part you didn’t understand and start over whenever you want.


The NCLEX questions and answers are mostly easy and test you for the skills you already have in the nursing school. Although the exams can be nerve wrecking but you must keep calm and be confident enough to face all the NCLEX questions and answers with the best knowledge and potential you have. Nursing requires not only intelligence but the will, dedication, and understanding to serve people.
