    Did you actually have clinical hours as well as theory in maternity? That may be your area that causes you much delay. The BON does not issue the ATT, that is done by Pearson-Vue once they have received payment and GA has okayed you to sit for the exam. I would definitely give them a few weeks once they have received your CES to make a decision on it.

    Always recommend three months at the minimum for preparation before sitting for the exam. Check out the tips that I have on the NCLEX Forum for my program.
    Wow, you respond so fast.
    Yes, I spent 7 weeks in total on the maternity inpatient unit, and 2 weeks with the community midwives. Are there any other areas that you feel will be problematic?
    I should start preparing for the NCLEX over the next couple of weeks, will have a look at your thread again for recommended study material.
    Thank you.

    The other area that usually causes issue is pediatrics. Did you have clinical hours as well as theory hours in that area? And with the maternal, did you have theory hours in a classroom, or was it all clinical?

    I do answer quickly if I am around. Currently on vacation, and for two more weeks, but drop by from time to time.

    Glad to be of help.

    YES, 6 weeks paediatrics.
    Theory hours? I can hardly remember, however I think that around two weeks theoretical prep for each area and 1 weeks reflection. No assignments or exams completed though, apart from ward based ones which I don't think would count. If my hours are insufficient can I make up the hours there?.
    I am feeling so desperate at the moment, I made a questionable decision to leave my 6 year old in ATL with my mom while I tie things up here. I was naive enough to think that this would be a 8-12 month process. Nearly 5 months have passed and I haven't evevn yet passed the first hurdle, don't even know if I will get past it.
    I miss him o the point that I cn barely function.

    I think you should be ok as long as your transcript shows hours mine showed hours both clinical and practical and I just did class work no exams and had no problems
