The Center for Student Achievement (CSA) engages students to help prepare them for the NCLEX examination.
We offer a series of tests and a Comprehensive Adaptive Test, just like the NCLEX to identify subject weaknesses and help students study with a purpose. This is after graduation or during the last nursing course, while the student prepares for the NCLEX exam.
Our Comprehensive Adaptive Test (CAT) mimics the NCLEX exam. Through detailed reports students can identify their weak subject matters and focus their studies on areas of improvement. We provide material for remediation or allow students to use their own resources such as Uworld, ATI or Pearson. We allow students the flexibility to remediate at their own pace and welcome other evidence-based practice tools for studying they may choose. Students re-test, periodically to build testing endurance and reach the Acceptable level of proficiency.
The CSA team encourages students to avoid testing for the NCLEX exam blindly and seek help so that they may pass on their first attempt. The Center for Student Achievement can mentor, coach, and tutor students through bootcamps offered both live on campus, and via 1:1 tutoring, conveniently available throughout the week.
Furthermore, students who participate with the CSA and pass NCLEX on the first attempt qualify for the Future Hero Grant of $650.00.
