Instructor Biography

Lisa Chou, Registered Nurse

I am an RN, BSN, who graduated summa cum laude from Thomas Jefferson University in July 2012. It was then that I realized NCLEX wasn't really difficult- I just had never been taught how to tackle questions correctly! I decided to make it my mission to create a better method so that anyone can prepare themselves for NCLEX and pass on the first try.

Throughout the years, I have worked in medical/surgical, cardiac, PACU, psych, and pediatrics. I have also been teaching students through my company NCLEX Simplified for two years- the result being nineteen new nurses in the field who wouldn't be there otherwise! This experience, combined with my encyclopedia-like knowledge, makes me the ideal person to help you in your NCLEX journey.
