Graduate Nurse Internationally Educated

Graduate nurses who have been internationally educated are prepared, at KPU, for success practicing as nurses in Canada.

Best Bet: PrepStep

This database includes study material for many standardized tests.

To find practice tests, ebooks and study flash cards for the NCLEX-RN exam, click on:

  • Career Preparation
  • Prepare for Nursing Exams

You will see links to different material in the Prepare for the NCLEX-RN section.

A couple of things to keep in mind:

  • the Library subscribes to PrepStep, so you'll need to use your KPU login to access it off campus
  • unlike most other library databases, you will also have to create your own account within PrepStep to access the material (this account will allow you to track your performance on practice tests)
  • PrepStep is an American database, so you will encounter a few study material questions that are specific to the United States

Most of the print books are located at our Langley campus library. You can come to the library and retrieve the books yourself. Or, if you see any items of interest:

  • login through the Place Hold button
  • select the campus library where you want to pick up the items
  • the Library will email you when the books are ready for you

For ebooks you will need to enter your KPU login information to access the full-text off campus. A few of the e-resources that come up in this search link to the PrepSTEP database. If you access those PrepSTEP e-resources, you'll also need to create/login to your personal PrepSTEP account after logging in with your KPU login.

Google searches will also bring up more free resources, but you may need to create an account to get access to this material. If you do search on the open web be sure to note which person or organization created the content, and assess whether it is a reliable source.
