16 Individuals Complete NCLEX-RN Review Course at NMC (August 2, 2013)

Sixteen individuals, most of whom graduated from the Northern Marianas College with a nursing degree, recently completed a preparatory course for the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN).

The NCLEX-RN is used by nursing boards in all 50 United States and all U.S. territories to award nurse licenses. The rigorous examination tests students on their nursing knowledge, skills, and abilities essential to the safe and effective practice of nursing at the entry level.

The review course was facilitated by the CNMI Area Health Education Center (AHEC) through the NMC Community Development Institute (CDI), which awarded the sixteen participants certificates of completion during a ceremony held at the NMC Nursing Department.

The participants completed 40 hours of classroom instruction, as well as mock exams. The review also focused on the analysis of the type of questions commonly given on the NCLEX-RN along with an in-depth review of the each content area. In addition, course participants were taught test-taking and studying strategies. The course was taught by NMC nursing instructor Johnny Aldan.

“We are very happy to be of service to members in our community who are trying to pursue a career in nursing and in other fields,” said Acting CDI Director Floyd Masga.

“It is critical to pass the NCLEX-RN in order to begin a career in nursing and we are happy to be able to assist members in our community work toward their career goals,” said Acting CDI Director Floyd Masga.
