Nursing School is an important part of the journey of becoming a licensed nurse. In order for a nurse to become licensed and practice nursing legally, he or she must have completed all of the necessary educational requirements as set forth by the State’s Board of Nursing. In addition to completing the nursing school’s educational requirements, all necessary tests (such as the NCLEX) must be passed in order to obtain proper licensing.
Nursing school can be very intimidating for some students. That is why we wanted to create a useful resource to help current students (and pre-students) succeed.
