    I'm in Staten Island ferry or bus ride away from manhattan..I'm still waiting for my ATT...how was the test? I went to school in Jersey.
    I admit the test is not that hard but still i failed..lol...got EKG,tons of SATA,prioritization,1-2questions of infection, meds but no calculation...The only thing is I didn't know how to read EKG and need to refresh on some disease...You'll receive your ATT usually about 3-4 weeks when you first apply...message me if you're still interested to study with me,I'll retake NCLEX probably late April..

    Hi mga kababayan, I just got my license today and I would like to share this prayer I found somewhere here in allnurses.com. I believe that this prayer is really powerful.

    This powerful prayer is very effective in examinations. It has to be said before appearing in the examination. There are two variants to this prayer. Both the prayers are equally effective. You can choose any one of these:

    First Prayer
    O Great St. Joseph of Cupertino who while on earth did obtain from God the grace to be asked at your examination only the questions you knew, obtain for me a like favour in the examinations for which I am now preparing. In return I promise to make you known and cause you to be invoked.
    Through Christ our Lord.
    St. Joseph of Cupertino, Pray for us.
    Amen.

    Second Prayer
    O St. Joseph of Cupertino who by your prayer obtained from God to be asked at your examination, the only preposition you knew. Grant that I may like you succeed in the (here mention the name of Examination eg. History paper I ) examination. In return I promise to make you known and cause you to be invoked.
    O St. Joseph of Cupertino pray for me
    O Holy Ghost enlighten me
    Our Lady of Good Studies pray for me
    Sacred Head of Jesus, Seat of divine wisdom, enlighten me.

    Good luck and God bless to everyone taking NCLEX PN or RN soon!

    Oh, I wanted to clarify my postings in this particular thread in regards to the CA BRN denying and or rejecting the majority of filipinos application to get their ATT in CA. It will NOT affect those that obtained their BSN's in the States, just those from the Phils (overseas) only. You guys in the States are lucky!

    There are 13-14 other States also making it as tough as CA, again, only for those with Phils degree and especially those from the 2004 to present years.

    Hello, mga kababayan! Just wanted to share with everyone that I passed my N-CLEX RN here in Wisconsin on my 2nd attempt!!! I was very nervous during the in-processing, but once I saw the dry erase board, I knew the good Lord was watching over me. As soon as the exam started, I wrote down all the important lab values I've memorized as well as several of the mnemonic devices that have been suggested on here by other members. I anticipated a lot of infection control questions, and whoop, there they were! I also answered a lot of questions on prioritization (i.e., RN is assigned to 4 different clients, which one would the RN assess first, etc.) as well as putting certain procedures in the correct order (e.g., dressing change on a peripheral venous access device).

    As far as studying is concerned, a very wise RN @ work advised me NOT to do too much at one time. Besides, our brains can only process so much information in one sitting. I mainly practiced answering questions from "N-CLEX 3500" (free), "N-CLEX Cram Sheet" CD, and my "Saunders N-CLEX RN" portable study cards. I usually did 75 - 100 randomly-generated questions everyday. If I wasn't doing too well, I didn't let that discourage me and instead, took a closer look @ the RATIONALE and TEST-TAKING STRATEGIES. I also folded a regular 8"x11" printing paper in half, wrote the important labs on one side, then the corresponding numerical values on the other side. You can use notecards for this too. I kept memorizing the lab values over and over until they eventually became second nature. However, keep in mind that in many of the passing-level questions, you may be given a patient exhibit in which you need to be able to interpret a set of lab values (along with your other assessments). Then the question may ask something along the lines of what would you do first or which data piece would keep you from administering a prescribed medication. Reviewing content materials on topics that you're weaker on is indeed helpful, but when you encounter a question in which you don't know the content, it's also helpful to know HOW to answer it.

    I just want to wish those of you who have yet to take it the best of luck! Hey, if I can do it, you guys can too! Remember to take your time, make good use of that dry erase board, and take the breaks when the computer asks you too. Heck, I was even stretching out in the hallway! God bless!

    RN is a registered nurse.
    PN is a licensed practical nurse or licensed vocational nurse depending on which part of the country you live in.

    I know that I mean what's the difference as far as the difficulty of the exams?

    Difficulty is relative. Many who have sat for both exams felt the NCLEX-PN was more difficult than the NCLEX-RN. They have different scopes of practice and a different knowledge base. So it is not necessarily whether is one is more difficult than the other as they are different exams.
