The NLN Live Review Mini Course is designed to showcase highlights from the NLN Live Review 1, 2, and 3 day review courses. The information and skills provided prepare students to pass the NCLEX® exam and be a competent, safe nurse!

  • The course is based on prototype SimScenarios, or case studies. These cases center on the basic concepts tested on NCLEX. Concepts such as pain management, ventilation, airway clearance, immobility, sterile technique, and others transcend specific diagnoses. Questions on NCLEX may refer to these concepts as relevant in the care of many different types of clients who vary in age, etiology, symptoms, treatment, and nursing implications.
  • Student's are encouraged to start to identify “red flags” in the client’s condition or situation. This is a great way for them to learn to look for keywords, phrases, and concepts in order to answer NCLEX questions. Each SimScenario presented will be followed by sample exam questions to practice memory recall and testing skills.
