Study Strategies for QuickRN Success

How to Use our Pass Quicker program to succeed on the NCLEX RN exam

Our revolutionary Pass Quicker program is designed to help you feel confident and score higher on the NCLEX RN exam.

Your success, however, will be based on how closely you follow our study plan and curriculum.

Here is our suggested 3-step process to follow as you prepare to take the NCLEX RN. This plan is focused primarily on practice questions – which we believe is the secret to acing the test.


Read our recommended review text book… then re-read

One of the most important concepts of test prep is reading the review textbook. It will  guide you through various steps, preparing you for what you need to know to answer the NCLEX exam.

While reading the review textbook you should take notes, referencing and analyzing the concepts you are struggling with. Exam Cram, our recommended textbook, is written in an easy to comprehend language. It does a good job preparing you for the exam.

Here is what is included:


Assessment Exam

Know your “areas for improvement”.

The Assessment Exam will identify your strengths and weaknesses. Answer all 75 questions and you’ll receive a report showing where you went wrong. The Exam is structured to let you know which areas you will need to brush up on before starting the practice exams.

Practice Exams

You’ll begin with the Intro Level which evaluates your foundational knowledge. You’ll need 100% in order to unlock each level. The PN Level questions are based on concepts, disease processes and general nursing knowledge. RN level questions are in the NCLEX style, designed to test your critical thinking capacity.

Simulation Exam

The Simulation Exam follows the algorithm design of the computer adaptive testing capability of the NCLEX. The QuickRN Simulation Exam monitors your path through the questions isolating when you get them right or wrong. Getting 75 consecutive questions right will give you a pass. Otherwise it will take 265 correct answers in 6 hours to get you through the exam. Good luck!

Questions incorporate the five stages of the Nursing Process (assessment, diagnosis, planning, implementation, and evaluation) and the four categories of Client Needs.

Four Categories of Client Needs

A. Safe effective care:

  • Management of care: 17%–23% ( percentage based on 865 questions)
  • Safety and infection control: 7%–15% ( percentage based on 865 questions)

B. Health promotion and maintenance: 6%–12% ( percentage based on 865 questions)

C. Psychosocial integrity: 6%–12% ( percentage based on 865 questions)

D. Physiological integrity:

  • Basic care and comfort: 6%–12% ( percentage based on 865 questions)
  • Pharmacological and parenteral therapy: 12%–18% ( percentage based on 865 questions)
  • Reduction of risk: 9%–15% ( percentage based on 865 questions)
  • Physiological adaptation: 11%–17% ( percentage based on 865 questions)
Computerized Adaptive Testing (CAT)
  • uses computer technology and measurement theory
  • computer calculates an ability estimate
  • the examination is tailored to the candidate’s knowledge and skills

Nel’s Study tip:

Try to scale up the number of questions you answer as you progress through our program!


Focus on Your Problem Areas

Most of us enjoy doing those things which come easy to us. It’s human nature! The best way to achieve these “good feelings” is to keep doing those things we already know we can do well.

But how does this apply to nursing school – and your NCLEX test?

When you take a quiz on a topic you are struggling with (or unfamiliar with)… you are going to have bad marks. That certainly won’t feel good. As you continue to work through those stumbling blocks, however, those problem areas will soon become your strengths!

Finding your weak areas becomes easy with our Assessment Exam. Once you know what they are, we’ll teach you how to strengthen your skills and master those areas – so you’ll actually feel happy when questions relating to these areas come up in your test.
