In order to help you prepare for a successful NPLEX experience, CCNM is pleased to offer you our new and improved NPLEX Prep Course. Dr. Anderson’s Basic Sciences review now includes Comprehensive Courseware + 20 New ON-LINE Video Tutorial Learning Modules including Study Strategies that will be accessible to you for review up until the date of your NPLEX exam. This is the course offered at the other naturopathic colleges, with the bonus of allowing you to review the material at your convenience.
You will have access to the course materials 24-7 up until the exam in Feb 2015.
Please allow a 3-5 business days for access to course materials.
NPLEX 1 - ON-LINE PREP COURSE (by Dr. Paul Anderson)
Date: Nov 2014 - Feb 2015 NPLEX Exam
Time: On-line Modules (24-hour access)
Instructor: Dr. Paul Anderson
Information based on learning content areas and seventeen years teaching and writing board exam questions will be given in the following basic medical science areas:
Microbiology – Immunology
Based on the change by NABNE to an integrated case-based basic science examination these five topics will be integrated to the degree possible to enhance integrated learning. Some areas such as cellular physiology, portions of biochemistry, and portions of immunology will necessarily be taught separately as required.
The on-line learning modules will cover:
(Note: Anatomy includes pertinent embryology and histology)
Introductory cell physiology, general pathology and microbial physiology.
The neurological system; anatomy, physiology, pathology and biochemistry
The Cardiovascular system; hematopoesis, anatomy, physiology, pathology and biochemistry
The Pulmonary system; anatomy, physiology, pathology and biochemistry
The Musculo-skeletal system; anatomy, physiology, pathology and biochemistry
The Digestive system; anatomy, physiology, pathology and biochemistry
The Renal and Urinary system; anatomy, physiology, pathology and biochemistry
The Immune system / Microbiology; anatomy, physiology, pathology and biochemistry
The Endocrine system; anatomy, physiology, pathology and biochemistry
The Reproductive system; embryology, anatomy, physiology, pathology / biochemistry
These reviews follow the NPLEX / NABNE outline and format for the current year.
They are intended to form a core of information from which the student can focus their study for the Basic Science NPLEX board exams. They of course are not intended to replace personal preparation but rather give overviews to the topic areas and point out common areas where board questions arise.
