Unfortunately, few websites offer free NCLEX review questions. For comprehensive sets of questions, NCLEX books are a good choice.

For tips on test preparation and registration, visit the National Council of States Boards of Nursing website.

For websites that will help you review for the various topics covered on the exam, visit the library's Best Websites for Healthcare.

Information for Alverno Alumnae

Getting an alumna library card:

  • Graduates who have earned a degree from Alverno College are eligible for a library card. Persons who have successfully completed a certification or recertification program at Alverno College may also be eligible for a library card.
  • Alumnae may apply for a free card in the first year after certification or graduation. After the first year the annual fee for a library card is $10.
  • Applicants must complete a library card application form (and show a photo ID) at the library's Help Desk.
  • Application forms may be mailed to applicants at their request. Checks should be made payable to Alverno College. 

The card entitles alumna to:

  • Check out books from the Alverno Library collection (including NCLEX books).
  • Request books and check out books from other SWITCH libraries.
  • Access Alverno Library databases from within the library.

Due to licensing restrictions the Alverno Library cannot provide off-campus access to databases for Alumna or Courtesy cardholders.

The card does not allow alumna to log into the Alverno computer network. If you are an alumna and need to use a library computer, ask the reference librarian to log you in as a guest.
