ATI Comprehensive NCLEX test?
- 0Jan 10, '08 by BecksalmostI took the ATi 180 question Comprehensive NCLEX predictor and I got a 79.6 on it. I want to know what other people got the passed the NCLEX and if it is anything like the NCLEX.
I was also woundering if the ATI helped to use to study for the NCLEX and if it is a good predictor.

I took it without reviewing anything to get a good idea of where I stood and got a 67.8% which translated into somewhere between a 97-98% chance of passing on my first try. The faculty member that proctored the exam said that those that score 62% or higher tend to pass NCLEX on their first try.
I got 75 questions on the NCLEX and passed on the first try. I think the ATI exam helped me focus on some of my problem areas. I did awful on endocrine questions and some of the therapeutic communication quests that fell under mental health, so I focused on those areas when I reviewed for NCLEX.
I thought the NCLEX was more difficult, but that may have to do with all the anxiety that it brings. I wasn't worried about getting my RN license when I was taking the ATI. With your score, I think you have a pretty good grasp of how to test and would just review content areas that you feel you need to work on.
Best of luck to you!
- 0Apr 22, '09 by EponaHi mmmc2. I am taking the comprehensive this Friday and I am a bit scared because you have to pass that test in order to graduate. So far, I have been getting mostly level ones with somewhere b/t 61 and 63 for my scores. So I am kinda scared with having to get a 65 (that is what our teacher told us was passing). I am around there, but it's close. You said the ATI comprehensive was pretty easy?? Good! Have most people you know done well on it??

We only had a couple of people (out of 42) who didn't pass the first time. They passed the second time, though.
We had to get at least a 74% at my school in order to graduate which I don't think is too hard to get.
I have averaged between 72-78% on the previous ATIs which is a level 2. Never could get a level 3 (except in Leadership this semester).
If you are able to do the ATI practice comprehensive, do it. Many of the questions seemed to be pretty similar to the proctored test. Lots of maternity and peds. questions. So if you aren't good at those areas, review. Also there were several questions on Crohn's, which I really didn't know enough about.
Good luck and don't stress too much. Let us know how you did.
