Click on a question below to see the answer

  • $50 Non-Refundable Deposit

    Hurst requires a minimum $50 non-refundable deposit to reserve a seat for any live or N-Stream review.  If you register and then cannot attend, the deposit can be applied to any other review event registration.  Any amount paid over the $50 registration is completely refundable.

  • As a Hurst Review student, when do I get access to the Online Resource Materials and quizzes?

    Access to the Resource Documents and the Qbank/Customizer (1,500 practice questions for RNs/ 1,000 questions for PNs) begins on the day you register with a $50 deposit. The Readiness/Simulator (4 practice exams for RNs and PNs) access begins on the last day of your Live or N-Stream review. Hurst Now students receive the Qbank/Customizer and the Readiness/Simulator exam access as soon as your account opens. You may access these materials for the life of your Hurst account.

  • As a Live Review student, when do I get access to review the core content we covered in class?

    Your two-week access to the Core Content lectures online begins on the date you choose. After you complete your live review, log into your online account and you will see a notification bar at the top of your home page listing your pending access. Click the "activate it" tab. You will be asked if you wish to begin.  If you choose to start, you will have 14 days of uninterrupted access.  This option expires 9 months (6 months for our PN Review) from the end of your first live review.  This access includes Qbank/Customizer and Readiness/Simulator exams, Specialty Area Lectures, and Resource Materials with Pharmacology, Infection Control and more. 

  • How can I obtain a course completion certificate?

    Hurst Review students may view and print a course progress/completion certificate.  Sign in to the Hurst account, then from the Welcome Page, choose "Progress Report." At the top of the page, you will see the "Course Progress" link with the word "print." You will be prompted to print your certificate of completion. Readiness/Simulator exam completion certificates can be printed at the completion of each exam. Scroll to the bottom of the Q Review page, and a "Previously Taken Attempts" section is available.

  • How do I register for a repeat review?

    Students who have purchased an RN Live Review, paid in full and completed the first review are allowed a repeat registration. These students may log into their Hurst Review account, hover over their username menu in the top right corner, then select the 'Past Reviews' menu item. See the link for 'Register fo Repeat Review'.  PN Live Review students are not allowed a repeat review registration.

  • How do I schedule a Live Review for my school?

    Easy!  All we need are 20 students to conduct a live review for your class.  Email us at for more information.

  • What happens if I can't attend at the last minute?

    We will transfer your payment to another review of your choice or refund all but your $50 non-refundable deposit.

  • What is Hurst Review's pass rate for first time takers that took your Live Review?

Traditional PN nursing graduates who graduated in December of 2017 and chose the Hurst Review Services live, online or classroom video review package for their preparation had over a 99.17% chance of passing their exam the first time.

  • What is the start and end time of your live reviews?

    Generally, 8am - 4:30pm. Check the full details of the Hurst Live review you want to attend. If it is a N-Stream review, this typically is 10am - 3:30pm Central Time zone; however, these times may also be adjusted so check the details of the review when you register.

  • What should I bring to class the first day?

    Please bring your registration receipt and a photo ID. It is also a good idea to bring a sweater/jacket for comfort and a snack if desired for break.  We break for an hour around noon for lunch.  We do not provide lunch or drinks.

  • What's the difference in the Live review and the N-Stream review

    The Live review and the N-Stream review are essentially the same. The only difference is with N-Stream, the student can participate from the convenience of their own home or classroom (if appropriate). All that is required is a laptop and good internet service/accessibility.

Hurst Review was absolutely wonderful! I enjoyed the way the content was condensed and simplified in order for me to master the key points needed to pass the NCLEX. The Q reviews were helpful, NCLEX style questions. I'm happy to say that I passed the NCLEX with 75 questions with help from this review. Highly recommend!

I took this review and passed my NCLEX first try, in 75 questions! Such an excellent review service. I understood concepts that I struggled with all through nursing school! So thankful HURST review. To future NCLEX takers, I really encourage you to get this review package! Couldn't ask for anything better.

S. Elizabeth, RN

Took the live review! Instructor was amazing and the course resources and content beyond it were so helpful. Passed the nclex the first time with 75 questions! Thanks aunty Marlene!

S. Thoms, RN

I recently wrote the NCLEX exam in Canada. I passed on the first try with 128 questions! Thanks to your comprehensive review, I gained the confidence in what I already knew. I wouldn't have passed the exam without Hurst Review :)
