Happy Holidays!

The holiday season is in full swing and we’re sure that you’re all busy, so we’ve decided to take a little break from our constant blogging. This way, we can all show our loved ones some much needed TLC! Don’t worry, we’ll be back before you’ve even realized that we were gone. We wish you all peace and love this holiday season and a joyous new year! See you in 2016!

Davis Edge NCLEX-RN

We may have solved your NCLEX® practice woes

If you’re a nursing student, there’s one test that you’re looking forward to with maybe a bit of trepidation or dread: NCLEX®.

You’re learning as much as possible in your classroom labs and clinical days, but every nursing student we’ve talked to still wants to find practice questions and study guides to help them prepare in their own time. (You overachievers!) And of course, being a publisher, we have a whole section of our website devoted to the NCLEX® Review books you know and love.

But reading all the NCLEX® practice questions you can find in print won’t help you if you can’t identify which topics you struggle with. That’s why we created Davis Edge for NCLEX-RN®. It’s an interactive, adaptive test bank online. You can use it on any device, mobile or desktop. As you begin answering questions in Davis Edge, it will target which topics you’re struggling with and provide more practice questions related to those areas.

If you’ve never heard of Davis Edge before, here’s an introductory video that might help. We also have Davis Edge products for RN Fundamentals, LPN Fundamentals, LPN Med-Surg, and Psych courses!

 

We’ve gotten so much feedback from instructors and students that Davis Edge has helped them learn and apply their course material, and we can’t wait to see what you think of Davis Edge NCLEX-RN®! We’re even trying something completely new – students will be able to preview the product as soon as it comes out, in a free 2-day trial. That way, you can see for yourself if it will help you learn before you commit to buying. Sign up here and be the first to know when this product is available in December. We’ll email you ASAP and you can let us know when to start your trial so you have plenty of time to practice.

Feel free to leave us questions in the comments or contact us at DavisEdge@fadavis.com.
