  • Course Overview

    Please note: As of April 1st, 2023, the NCLEX-RN® exam will be changing to a new format called the Next Generation NCLEX-RN®.  For those writing after this date, we will be launching a new course on March 27th,  2023 to meet your learning needs and the new format. Please sign up for the “notify me” or “register” in advance for access to the new course when it opens through this link. Alternatively, if you would like to register for the current course (old NCLEX-RN® exam format) to begin studying now, we will place you in the new course when it opens. This online, (self-paced), NCLEX-RN® preparation course is designed to provide strategies to prepare candidates for writing the NCLEX-RN® exam. Developed specifically for Canadian nursing students/nurses who are preparing to write or rewrite the NCLEX-RN® exam in Canada. The University of Toronto nursing faculty, share their content expertise and in-depth knowledge of the NCLEX-RN® exam structure and foci, test taking strategies, and effective study strategies. The course includes focused modules on selected areas of nursing practice covered in the NCLEX-RN® exam. This course does not provide an in-depth content review for all content explored in undergraduate programs, but does review delegation, chronic diseases, labs/diagnostics, maternal/child, pediatrics, pharmacology, and critical care nursing competencies. This course is most effective if started at the beginning of your exam preparation process.

    Course Objectives

    At the end of the course students will:
    1. Understand how the NCLEX-RN® exam & question formats are structured.
