These questions have been created to be challenging and, in most cases, to be even more difficult than your actual exam. Additionally, many questions are written to include real clinical or life scenarios so that you can see how this knowledge applies to actual challenges you may face later.
The reality is YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU DON'T KNOW UNTIL YOU ARE QUESTIONED ON IT. So we encourage our clients to challenge their knowledge by doing hundreds, if not thousands, of questions to accurately prepare for your TEAS VI or NCLEX-RN or HESI A2 exams. Our questions also require you to apply what you know.
The TEAS VI exam is, as its name implies, a Test of Essential Academic Skills. It assesses a candidate’s aptitude in reading, math, science, English, and usage of language. Many schools utilize the TEAS VI as a means of testing potential candidates looking to enter a nursing program—as such, it may often be a requirement to even be considered for acceptance. There is no minimum passing score standardized by the Assessment Technologies Institute (ATI), so score requirements are left up to individual nursing / allied health schools.
Thankfully, the TEAS VI test format is not unlike that of other standardized tests. If you have taken a standardized test before you may, to some degree, know what to expect. However, studying on your own can only take you so far. Learn the ins and outs of the TEAS VI by both brushing up on your foundational skills and diving in deep with Adkins Academy at your side.
The HESI A2 test, much like the TEAS VI, is a standardized screening test for applications interested in nursing school. This test—which stands for Health Education Systems, Inc. Admission Assessment—is comprised of a multiple-choice test with nine exam topics: General Knowledge, Reading Comprehension, Grammar, Vocabulary, Anatomy, Physiology, Chemistry, Physics, and Basic Math Skills. It may also include personality and learning style sections.
Again, like the TEAS VI, each nursing / allied health school sets their own passing score for the HESI A2. With 326 questions and nine topics to consider, you must be vigilant in your prepwork.
Unlike any test you’ll take in nursing school, the NCLEX-RN does not determine eligibility to enter nursing school. Rather, the NCLEX-RN tests application, analysis, and whether or not it is safe for you to enter the field as an entry-level nurse. Your judgement and nursing knowledge acquired in school will be tested.
The NCLEX-RN is an exam of integrated topics, meaning you may face questions derived from many different subjects often tested separately in school. To do well, you must comprehend the four major categories and their subcategories:
Safe and Effective Care Environment
Management of Care
Safety and Infection Control
Health Promotion and Maintenance
Basic Care and Comfort
Pharmacological and Parenteral Therapies
Reduction of Risk Potential
While questions are mostly multiple-choice, the NCLEX-RN also features drag-and-drop, fill-in-the-blank, hot spots, as well as chart/exhibit. You must answer a minimum of 75 questions out of 265 within a 6 hour timeframe.
HOW TO PREPARE
Taking a practice test prior to your exam preparation can give insight to your strengths and weaknesses. You cannot pinpoint an area of attention without knowing it needs attention, but reviewing the results of a practice test can reveal everything you need to know in order to do well.
As you navigate study material and practice exams, keep in mind the following three crucial statements:
I answered correctly and confidently.
I was unsure, but answered correctly.
I did not know the correct answer at all.
Taking note of how you feel about each question you encounter, as well as the result of your answers, can better highlight what needs to be worked on. If you answered several related questions correctly and with confidence, that may be an indication that you know the material well enough to move on to something else. However, if you felt unsure about your decision or did not know the answer at all, it may be best to review notes regarding that specific section
