How We Prepare You For NCLEX
A Class Focused Entirely On NCLEX
In the final year of our nursing core program, all students will take our Professional Seminar course. In this class, our expert instructors along with ATI educators offer you clear strategies and guidance for passing the NCLEX-RN exam.
Our NCLEX Preparation Course Includes:
These assignments are individualized based on student performance of weekly assessments. The custom assignments are designed by ATI, our comprehensive learning system.
- During our 3-day live review, instructors will guide students with test-taking strategies and best practices.
During the NCLEX preparation class, our instructors work with each student individually to answer questions as they study. For the areas where a student needs extra help, teachers will walk them through example case studies and give personalized feedback.
Even after graduating, our students will continue to have access to the ATI learning products for 1 year. Using the ATI learning resources, students can go through NCLEX practice questions and get feedback on areas they need to improve.
What Our Students Say
Arizona College was incredibly helpful in preparing us for NCLEX. Throughout our nursing program, we had to answer NCLEX-style questions that prompted us to use clinical judgment. ATI’s 3-day workshop was also beneficial. Happy to say that all of the students in my nursing cohort passed the NCLEX!

Arizona College holds a special place in my heart. From Day 1, I was treated as a future success story and I felt supported throughout my time at school. After graduating, I passed the NCLEX and I’m now working as an ER nurse!

NCLEX Preparation Starts On Day 1
From the first day of general education classes in our program, students are introduced to critical-thinking processes and concepts that will prepare them for the NCLEX-RN. The core of the NCLEX is clinical judgment, which combines critical-thinking skills, data analysis, active listening, and patient observation to provide quality medical care.
Arizona College has designed our nursing curriculum to include clinical judgment training in every class that students take. Our instructors help students to utilize their critical-thinking skills as they work through patient scenarios and case studies.
Our extensive clinical judgment training gives students the skills necessary to pass the NCLEX exam and succeed in the nursing field.
