"After 2 recent attempts at the RN nclex with 265 questions both times and failed, I knew there was a better way. I was determined it was not going to happen again. I have come across many sites, along with Kaplan and hurst, with the expense, it was just too much money. I read all the reviews for NCSBN and decided for the money and time it was worth a shot. I signed up for the 5 week program knowing I was going to have to really stay on the study schedule. The schedule was no joke! I even found myself doing 6-12 hours of study time daily, but I knew it would pay off. Not only did I sign up for the 5 week class, I also knew I only had 4 crucial weeks to try and finish. So now exam day is here, I walked out with 77 questions and I had no doubt I had passed this time. I am so glad I invested the 70$ and time on this program. It was way worth it! Thanks NCSBN!!!!!! Officially a RN  :) "   — Testimonial .
