    Seems sort of silly to take the NCLEX-PN when you qualify to take the NCLEX-RN. Besides from what I have heard the NCLEX-PN is harder than the NCLEX-RN.
    i wish id still have the drive to get back to drawing boards again and start reviewing for nclexrn. i mean its my 3rd try, i just wana try pn, maybe itll be my stepping stone.

    I didn't think that was even possible. Wouldn't you have to get a separate ATT?

    I would agree that the PN exam seemed harder. I took the PN in 2009 thank God I passed on my 1st try. And I just took The RN exam on 4/30 and passed. I used Kaplan online Q bank and Saunders. I did not like kaplan they gave me to much info I did not need. I used Saunders for my PN with no prep class I just used the book and CD. I would like to give you some words of encouragement. I am student with a diagnosed learning disabilitiy and I received accommodation through out school and I could have gotten accommodation for both exams , I decided not to use them and I passed both times. I say all of this to say u can do it Also have tried test taking skills maybe its not content u need. I the front of Saunders yellow book they have very good tips on how to take nclex. I used them every time I did questions. Its not just about doing questions you need to know how get to the right answer

    When you do the content review, you should be get 80% or better. Also remember that the NCLEX is CBT. It is testing critical thinking, but you need to have a strong grasp of the content. Www.learningext.com is a great review since it is written by the people who write the test. keep studying until you have content down.

    NCSBN 3week course, the "study guide" that has been shared on this blog before and the KAPLAN 2013-14 test taking strategies should be enough... i took boards and passed the test in record time of 40min.
