Jurisprudence 2017 update

Almost 10% of registrants scheduled to participate in Jurisprudence this year have completed the exam. What are LPNs saying about their experience?

“Don’t do the exam while you’re at work. Take your time and do it on your time off.”

“Read through all options and select the best answer, not just the first one that sounds good.”

“The Jurisprudence exam is open-book. Use all of the resources and links included in the exam.”

“Review all of the material provided. You might think you know it already, but you need to review it again to be successful!”
