Brainscape’s NCLEX-RN exam prep has over 3,000 flashcards covering the most important concepts you need to pass the exam … the first time around.

Most aspiring nurses who face down the NCLEX-RN ® Nursing feel overwhelmed by the avalanche of content and resources they need to learn. But Brainscape’s smart flashcards empower you to study BETTER and FASTER, saving you time and anxiety!

The ultimate content review for NCLEX exam prep

Brainscape’s NCLEX-RN course was developed by Justine Buick, "The NCLEX Tutor", an experienced Registered Nurse and owner of KoaPine Tutoring & Test Prep. For years, Justine has worked with nursing students of all levels, helping them to prepare for the NCLEX-RN.

Through her work (and personal experience taking on the exam), she recognized how tough it is to retain the huge volume of nursing content tested by the NCLEX. But in Brainscape—the world’s smartest flashcard app—Justine found the perfect study tool to make the job much faster and easier for nursing students everywhere.

Master facts quicker with Brainscape’s NCLEX-RN flashcards

Brainscape’s 3,000+ NCLEX-RN flashcards provide a review of the most important and commonly tested topics in the latest, most current NCLEX-RN Test Plan: Fundamentals, Management of Care, Safety and Infection Control, Pharmacology, Adult Health, Mental Health, Maternity, and Pediatrics.

All of this information has been distilled down into neatly organized question-and-answer flashcards, many of which include illustrations for greater (and faster) understanding. By eliminating the inessential content and streamlining your learning with our proprietary learning algorithm, Brainscape saves you hours of study time.

Master NCLEX meds without the headache

A major complaint of NCLEX candidates is: how do I study meds when there are so many?! We’ve narrowed the pages and pages of pharmaceutical content down to the top meds you need to know to ace the NCLEX, along with the most common side effects, adverse reactions, and nursing considerations.

We have also included ‘Prioritization’ and ‘ABC's’ flashcard decks, which are designed to test all the priority topics for the"Who Do You See First" NCLEX-style questions. These are great for a quick review whenever and wherever you find yourself with a few minutes to study.

Brainscape helps you learn faster and remember for longer

The brain is hardwired to learn and remember information a certain way. The Brainscape™ flashcard app was born out of the question: what if we leveraged this hardwiring to help students learn more efficiently? Fueled by curiosity, our team of cognitive scientists from Columbia and Yale spent years developing a scientifically optimized learning platform to boost your learning.

Our"secret sauce" is a learning algorithm that delivers information to your brain in a way that optimizes its ability to retain that information. And it’s the spaced repetition of Nursing content at precisely the right interval for YOUR brain that makes Brainscape so effective for remembering the facts.
