We do guarantee that you will be given essential techniques, strategies, and a clearer understanding of many difficult nursing concepts. If you study and apply yourself, your chances of success are excellent! If necessary, you may repeat the entire course within 6 months of your original class date for only $300.

It is a priority of Americas Empowerment Institute Nursing Review course to make high quality, nursing review classes accessible to all students preparing to sit for their NCLEX-RN/LVN examination. The faculty is also committed to making sure students pass this examination upon completing the review session.

⦁ Americas Empowerment Institute Nursing Review Course prepare our students with test taking skills and comprehensive Nursing content which can be successfully applied to any nursing exam. The review program is conducted in a classroom style environment and focuses on the components of the NCLEX-RN/LVN test plan as indicated below. Even though the test plan format changes every few years, Americas Empowerment Institute Nursing Prep faculty always adjust its program to reflect these changes.
⦁ The nursing content we teach is applicable to any exams; the primary difference is how each exam requires you to apply that knowledge. Each candidate will receive additional materials during the course that is specific to their NCLEX-RN/LVN. Our instructors will teach you how to apply the knowledge you gain to your specific exam. Americas Empowerment Institute Nursing Review faculty has been very successful in helping its students pass the NCLEX-RN/LVN examination.
⦁ Since the exams consist of multiple-choice questions at the cognitive levels of knowledge, comprehension, application and analysis, similar style questions are used during each session to prepare candidates to build on their experience in answering them. Four major categories of client needs organize the content of the NCLEX-RN/LVN Test Plan. Therefore the review will focus heavily on these major dimensions:
⦁ Psychosocial Integrity – sessions focus on concepts related to client care and mental health diseases.
⦁ Physiological Integrity – Sessions focus on respiratory, cardiovascular, neurological and endocrine disorders, nutrition and elimination or gastrointestinal and genitourinary disorders, mobility, sexual and sensory functioning.
⦁ Health Promotion and Maintenance – Sessions focus on the maternity client and her family.
⦁ Safe, Effective Care Environment – Sessions focus on growth and development and how to create a safe and effective care environment for the adult and child client.
