General FAQ

  • Hurst Review takes a three-step approach to NCLEX® review that includes the best of all worlds. We know that the first step of NCLEX® preparation is mastery of "must know" core content and a development of critical thinking and application skills. We also provide practice questions for students to utilize as they study. Step two requires the incorporation of NCLEX®-specific testing strategies to facilitate critical thinking skills for the entry level nurse.The final step is to take NCLEX®-style practice exams called Simulators. Our proven method teaches students to answer questions the NCLEX® way after they have learned the content. Our testing strategies are specific to the NCLEX® and are not appropriate for the GRE®, LSAT®, or MCAT®. Hurst Review’s exclusive focus is preparing nursing graduates to pass the NCLEX® exam the first time; it’s what we do 24/7.

  • We recommend that students take Hurst Review as they enter the last semester of school or upon graduation. Students should have been exposed to all of their medical–surgical courses before taking the review. 

  • Our goal is not only to help students pass the first time, but also to help students become competent and safe nurses. Hurst provides a comprehensive, step-by-step approach to the NCLEX® with our “Critical Thinking and Application NCLEX® Review.” We fill the gap between graduation and NCLEX® testing by transitioning the student from education to practice.

    We take a step-by-step approach:  1) Core content (incorporating critical thinking and application skills)  2) NCLEX® testing strategies (We teach NCLEX®-specific testing strategies, not strategies that are universal for the MCAT®, LSAT®, or GRE®) 3) NCLEX®-style practice exams (4 exams with 125 items each, plus additional practice questions).  We focus on the students’ understanding of the “why” in relation to causes, signs, and symptoms.  We use multiple teaching strategies with direct interaction to enhance student learning and engage the learner.
