How to Pass the NCLEX RN

Update: This competition is now officially over. Check the latest nursing updates

This site is about Health Licensing Exams around the world and we are now starting to cover Nursing-related news from all around the world. Today we would like to introduce you to one of the exciting competitions from Khan Academy for NCLEX-RN (wikipedia) Students and instructors.

While returning from the hospital on a hectic day I was thinking about the new standards and the way we are lagging at many things. Where we are not learning these new things and recent advancements in our field. We are not upgrading our knowledge as we should. As we know Necessity is the mother of invention many ideas come and go but some ideas are worth implementing. Pondering over such an idea to continue the education just like the Continuous Medication Education (CME) sessions we get. I realized there should be something similar about new trends beyond the usual class learning tempo and with fun as well.

Khan Academy is such an organization working online to provide free education with video sessions, and tutorials online. Subjects include Computers, Mathematics, and Science while their latest focus is now on Healthcare and Science. Khan Academy is currently running a competition for NCLEX-RN tutorial videos.
