    Got my ATT yesterday and I will be testing on the 24th. My job pays for Kaplan review so I had to work around that.

    Good luck to everyone here!!

    Really??? I am in MD but don't have my ATT yet. I'm not a morning person either. This could be really bad.

    Well there are only a few centers in MD ( I didnt check Salisbury) and there were even a limited amount of dates open!

    My director said she is flabbergasted that there are only 8 am slots open. She said Pearson must have cut back slots being there are less grads in Dec. I got my ATT a week ago and Jan 16th was the EARLIEST date I could find open ( out of Baltimore/Columbia/Bethesda and DC centers). Now today I checked back and saw Jan 3rd is open but I am in no way ready to test in 2 days...haha...just got back from vacation and need to crack a book open!

    Cross your fingers that someone who has a later time slot cancels or else, yep, it will be 8 am

    I graduated with a class of 140 on December 21st, so maybe they will open up some more slots when they get our list. Hoping so because I do really badly on early morning exams.

    I am in Maryland, too. If Maryland is full, then I will have to go to Virginia to test. Vienna is close by.

    AHHHHHHH. I graduated on Dec 16. Scheduled my NCLEX for Jan 23rd (wanting time to study) and then rescheduled it (on the advisement of my instructor and the persistence of my husband) and took it TODAY!!

    75 questions. In and out in under and hour. Phew. Relief.

    Prioritization, of course and several "check all that apply" (which I theorize are the "practice" ones that don't count. I HATE THOSE!). I was sick all day yesterday and had a HR of about 140 during the exam. I was thinking "man they should have a question about decreased cardiac output!"

    Good luck to all. We WILL survive!
