Resources for Future Nurses
Demand for future nurses is growing and creating vast opportunities for career growth. Prior to nursing school enrollment, most prospective nurses will need to take an entrance exam, for example the TEAS or HESI test. If you're not sure which entrance exam to take, check which your desired nursing schools require. These are some of the best nursing schools that require the TEAS test, for example.
After nursing school, future nurses will need to get a passing grade in one of the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) tests, NCLEX-RN for registered nurses or NCLEX-PN for practicing nurses. Studying for these tests is important to help you feel confident when it comes to test day. Flexible preparation materials, like online NCLEX study guides and practice tests can make it easy to fit study around other responsibilities. Another way to help prepare, especially when balancing childcare and work, is making a study schedule for NCLEX.
