From incoming students preparing to take the HESI entrance exam to recent graduates studying to take the NCLEX exam, while attending the Nursing School of study, it takes discipline, determination, and a lot of learning.
The FNU Library has created a Quick Reference Guide to assist students throughout their health sciences education, especially for the career in the Nursing field.
This content has been developed to support nursing students preparing for the National Council Licensing Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN). As you know, NCLEX is the official test that all prospective nurses must take before being allowed to practice in the 50 states, the District of Columbia, or United States territories. It is owned and developed by the National Council of State Boards of Nursing, or NCSBN. The purpose of the test is to enhance public health and safety by making sure that only people who are qualified to act as nurses are actually allowed to do so. Passing the NCLEX demonstrates that the prospective nurse has the knowledge, abilities, and skills that are required of a professional nurse.
The FNU Library goal is to assist students to enhance their critical thinking skills by using both traditional printed books and digital electronic resources.
In the current Library Collections, there are NCLEX exam books to check-out and take home or students can log-in to the LIRN databases and upload, and read the full-text books from their own computer monitor at any time and at any place, 24/7. Students can request the Reserve/textbooks or Reference NCLEX exam books to study in FNU Library, from early in the morning till late at night.
The FNU Library Staff provides access codes to the UWorld eResource for NCLEX exam practice preparation. The UWorld is more than a practice question bank, it is an “explanation bank” that is a 1-stop learning resource where you have all the information you need to master NCLEX concepts.
