After watching her classmates struggle to study for their NCLEX, Lisa realized that there had to be a better way- and so she made it! NCLEX Simplified holds only the core information you need to pass the test, with none of the information you don't. Students who have studied under Lisa have a 100% pass rate on the NCLEX! Join them today and get your RN or LPN. Hard work in this course really does pay off, and you'll feel ready to become the nurse you've always dreamed of being!


This is the quick and dirty version of the course- we're going to discuss Endocrine, Maternity, Neonate, Pediatrics, and Medications like you've never heard them before. This is NOT a substitute for a full NCLEX Review, but it sure is better than Kaplan!

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.
