Top 3 Common Mistakes When Taking Tests

Posted in Allgen Review Center, Tips with tags , , on July 11, 2010 by allgen2008

Taking the NCLEX is not much different from taking any other kind of qualification exam.  It may be tougher than other types of tests, but the bottom line is that it is a test, and whether you like it or not, you are bound to make some mistakes.

Awareness of the incorrect practices that are commonly engaged in by test takers will help you increase your chances of passing the NCLEX, though.  As with most anything, knowledge and awareness will give you the chance to change your strategy as needed.  Here are the 3 most common mistakes that are committed when taking tests.

  1. Not practicing enough.  Some test takers fall into the trap of merely reading and reading and reading some more.  One important thing about taking tests is that you should actually do practice runs as much as you can.  Nothing beats actually taking the test, but since you cannot take the NCLEX everyday, the next best thing is to do dry runs.
  2. Not following directions. This is a no brainer, really.  Instructions/directions are there for a reason, and every teacher/reviewer will always emphasize the importance of following them.  Sad to say, many test takers still fail to follow instructions.  If you do one thing when taking the NCLEX, make sure you understand the directions and that you follow them to a T.
  3. Second-guessing your hunches. There are people who tend to over think, and more often than not, this results in incorrect answers.  You are not expected to be 100 per cent sure of your answers in the NCLEX, but if you find yourself over thinking an item, go with your hunch.

Do you tend to make these mistakes?  Take a step back and assess yourself.  Knowing your weak spots might just help you jump this hurdle called the NCLEX.

Did you know…?

ALLGEN NCLEX Review offers unlimited access to online materials, which include practice tests.  These tests will be very helpful in preparing you for the actual test!

ALLGEN Offers FREE NCLEX Trial Review

Posted in Allgen Review Center, News, Open House with tags , , , on June 28, 2010 by allgen2008

The Licensure Exam for Nurses in the Philippines is slated to occur on July 3 and July 4 of this year, and just like any other scheduled examination, the upcoming NLE is bound to be packed with countless hopefuls. In fact, numbers show that almost 100,000 individuals will be taking the NLE.

The NLE is known to be a tough nut to crack, with many examinees needing to re-take the test. It is crucial, though, as passing the NLE is the first step for Filipino nurses to practice their profession legally.

However, the NLE is just that – a stepping stone – for many Filipino nurses. There is a proliferation of nursing jobs in our country, but the supply of nurses is higher than the demand; hence the desire for many Filipino nurses to broaden their horizons by looking for jobs overseas.

In order to be able to work in a foreign country, the United States, for example, a licensed Filipino nurse must pass the NCLEX first. There are many review centers offering NCLEX programs, and among the best is ALLGEN: The Intelligent Review. With our distinctive approach to learning, we’ve proven ourselves to provide our students with personalized instruction. Indeed, we can proudly say that we offer the best NCLEX review in town.

To give you a taste of what we have to share, we are offering a one-day pass to this batch of NLE examinees! This one-day pass allows you to sit-in on a day’s worth of NCLEX review classes in our Ermita Office. Any NLE examinee is more than welcome to join us, and if you like what you see, you can enroll in any of our upcoming NCLEX review programs.

On another note, we are also happy to announce that our Cebu branch is extending its services. More than NCLEX review programs, NLE review programs are going to be held at ALLGEN Cebu by August of this year. For more information on the Cebu branch, please visit our ALLGEN Cebu blog.

Demand For US Nurses To Go Up

Posted in Allgen Review Center, Barack Obama, NCLEX Workshops and Seminars, News, Nursing Immigration with tags , , , , on June 19, 2010 by allgen2008

The American Dream.  That’s what numerous Filipinos hold on to.  Even nursing students – perhaps especially nursing students – cling on to the hope that they can, one day, go to the United States to practice their profession and build a better lives for themselves.  Time does change things, however, and today, it seems that Filipino nurses are looking to greener pastures than those that can be found in America.

The Philippine Star published an article last week about this change.  According to the author, more Filipino nurses are now choosing the United Kingdom over the United States:

More and more Filipino nurses are now opting to work in the United Kingdom than in the United States, according to local recruiters.

Citing data from the UK Borders and Immigration Agency, recruitment leaders yesterday said that the number of Filipino nurses deployed to UK in the past three years has already surpassed those deployed to the US in the same period.

Data from the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA), on the other hand, showed that less than 300 registered Filipino nurses went to the US to work during the three-year period.

While this is the current situation, things can quickly change in the near future.  Experts in the field of nursing are quick to point out the Health Care Reform Bill, which the Obama Administration is pushing.  With this bill in place, the United States is sure to need more nurses in a short span of time.

In the next few years, the demand for nurses in the United States will open up far more possibilities for Filipino nurses, who are already known for their quality work.  As such, there is no better time than now to prepare for this surge in demand!

If nurses take the NCLEX now and get practical experience while waiting out the temporary slack, their chances of getting a job in the United States will increase exponentially.

We at ALLGEN realize our role in helping you prepare for this.  With our tried and tested NCLEX review program, we are confident that we can equip you with the best tools that can get you your dream nursing job in the US.  ALLGEN’s NCLEX review program has received several awards – testimonies to its effectiveness.

Why not make the best of this waiting period?  Find out more about what we have to offer, and get the benefits of the best NCLEX review program you can participate in.

ALLGEN’s NCLEX Review Program is a notch above all other similar programs being offered in the country.  Drawing upon tried and tested methods (from Sun Tzu’s Art of War to exam simulations), the review program has helped countless nurses finally achieve their goals.  As an added benefit for ALLGEN students, the review center extends the use of its online resources for 2 months after the 17-day intensive program.  Students may use these resources to further sharpen their skill sets.  Included in the online resource center are tests that will help reviewers evaluate their readiness for the NCLEX.  With the 2-month unlimited access to the online review, it is no wonder 98% of ALLGEN students pass the NCLEX review testing every month!
