Exam Master Online is an advanced online study system with powerful features for students and practitioners. The Nursing (NCLEX-RN) Board Prep and Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) Board Prep modules allow you to precisely select what you want to study. All exams are available in test and study modes, and you may take Notes and create Flashcards while you test or study. You may also mark questions for later review. All modules come with practice exams.

Exam Master’s NCLEX-RN resource was completely updated in 2017 and covers all the material you need to know. The 1600+ question test bank is based on the current NCSBN test plan for NCLEX-RN and uses the same types of challenging questions as found on the actual NCLEX-RN. The NCLEX-RN practice exam is structured just like the actual exam, with 265 carefully-selected questions with explanations.

 The questions are written by subject experts, educators and practitioners, and include detailed explanations that discuss the rationale for both the correct and incorrect answer choices. All questions are organized by Topic, Subject, and Categories and include clinical cases and vignettes. A calculator and lab reference sheet are also available for use while taking the tests and studying.

The Family Nurse Practitioner bank is designed to assist candidates in preparing for the Family Nurse Practitioner board certification exam. Users have the ability to create and take timed exams that simulate the experience of taking the actual FNP exam. Focus is on Health Promotion and Disease Prevention, Assessment of Acute and Chronic Illness, and Clinical Management. All questions include detailed explanations that discuss the rationale for both the correct and incorrect answer choices.
