Customer Reviews

“I used StudyPRN to help me to prepare for NMC registration, as I am an overseas qualified nurse. Thanks to StudyPRN I passed the CBT exam without any difficulty on my first attempt. I did the CBT preparation for 1 month only and I passed it, now I am a UK registered nurse. I’ve already recommended StudyPRN to 2 of my colleagues, who are also overseas nurses trying to get registration in the UK. The content is very well written and easy to understand. I am so happy that StudyPRN came up first on the list when I searched for service to help me to prepare for the exam. You guys are doing a very good job - again thank you very much!

“I accessed the NMC CBT resource and it was the best thing I could have done for myself. The resource was comprehensive and prepared me fully for my NMC CBT Exam. I would advise anyone who wants to be successful at this or any exam to use the resources StudyPRN has to offer - it is well structured, thorough and cost efficient. Thank you StudyPRN for helping me on my path to CBT success.”
