Date Published: March 23, 2022
As a nursing student, preparing to take the NCLEX will be one of the biggest challenges you face during nursing school… if not THE biggest! That’s why when it comes time for you to start preparing for the big test, we recommend you start at its origins: the NCSBN.
The National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) is a nonprofit organization comprised of nursing regulatory bodies in the U.S., the District of Columbia, and four U.S. territories. Along with serving as the primary regulating body for the nursing industry, they also develop the single most important exam in your nursing career: the NCLEX. We know that the NCLEX is challenging, but NCSBN provides a variety of resources to make preparing for it easier. Check out a dozen of their most helpful resources below.
