UWorld vs. Hurst… Which is better for NCLEX?

Hey guys, this is Nursejanx. In this video, we are going to talk about two of the more popular choices for NCLEX prep UWorld and Hurst.

If you’re new to this channel, welcome, I make lots of videos about the NCLEX, and I’m often asked what I recommend to nursing students who are studying for their exams.

There are a lot of programs out there that you can choose from, but two of the ones that I really like are UWorld and Hurst, but they both approach studying from different directions and I feel like one might suit you better depending on your needs.

If you already have a review program:

Uworld is the winner. If you only need practice questions, go for UWorld. They are the gold standard for practice questions, and although Hurst offers programs that mainly just give you self guided learning and access to their test banks, UWorld is still better in our opinion.

If you think you need a review program:

Hurst is the winner here, because it actually offers a review program. UWorld is only practice questions. They have great rationales and flashcards where you can learn as you go, but the focus is on taking questions.

Hurst actually has live review courses where you are guided through lectures with their faculty over the course of 3 days and you review the highlights from nursing school that are most likely going to be on the NCLEX.


UWorld: $129 starting for 30 days, but no self-assessments, $159 for 1 self-assessment and 60-day access

Hurst: $109 for 30-day access, no review, $399 for 9-month access and a 3-day live review.

Money-back guarantee and passing rates

Hurst wins here because they offer a 100% money-back guarantee if you fail. UWorld does not have a money-back guarantee. Hurst also advertises their pass rate which is 98.6%, while UWorld does not.


Both are great options for NCLEX prep. Do you feel confident with your content knowledge and just want to get better at taking practice tests? Do UWorld.

Do you feel like you have poor content retention from nursing school and need a review course? Do Hurst.

Or… use what you already bought in nursing school. Start there and see if it is enough preparation. See what your passing rates are from your program and if they are high and you already got a review program as part of your school, then stick with that. A lot of NCLEX prep brands are high quality, and all of the big names have excellent passing rates and get results. So if you already have one, then save your money.
