Just wondering if anyone out there has taken the ATI (RN Edition) Maternal Newborn Nursing proctored exam??? For some reason many of us, who happen to be passing our nursing classes with B's, have struggled with previous ATI test (Fundamentals and Psych). It is a pass or fail test for us in our program, we have 2 opportunities to reach level 2. The majority who pass, pass by like 1 or 2 questions. The practice tests seem to be completly diffrent information than on the test and the sample questions in the book are way easier than the most random questions ATI places on their test. So I was wondering a couple of questions: 1. How is the Maternal Newborn Test 2. Do our instructors really not know the questions that are going to be on the test (They say they have no idea even the topics) 3. Last semester our second tests were the exact same test, should it be assumed that all future second exam will probably be the same? Thanks anyone who can help!

1. I thought the test was easy, but then again I want to go into Ob. I ended up in the 97th percentile and have never gotten anything less than a level 2 on any of the exams so far; I study the book, do the practice exams, and watch the DVDs that come with and take notes. Ours is pass or fail too, which sure puts a lot of anxiety over the exams!
2. no the instructors have no idea what questions are going to be asked on the exams
3. I have never retaken a test before, so I do not know...but if you are in hopes that the second test will be exactly the same you should study some more; the point is to see how NCLEX passable you are, not if you can memorize all the answers. Try having a positive attitude that you will pass it.
