ATI Comprehensive Predictor as a benchmark for the NCLEX...?Register Today!
- by freki Dec 5, '12I graduate in 2 weeks from my ADN (RN) program and want to take the NCLEX just as soon as possible thereafter. Our school uses ATI testing (atitesting.com) as a benchmark; I hear many schools use something similar, like HESI or Kaplan.
My question is, how well does passing the ATI Comprehensive Predictor correlate to being able to pass the NCLEX-RN? Does anyone have any experience with this?
I'm also willing to hear from those using the other programs (HESI or Kaplan).
- Dec 5, '12 by lilsnfrnMy school required ATI. When I took the comprehensive predictor, I got a 92% probability of passing NCLEX on the first attempt, and I passed NCLEX on the first attempt with only 75 questions. I would highly recommend using ATI after graduation as well. You can work one-on-one with a nursing instructor. He/she will build a study plan based on your strengths and weaknesses. I found that extremely helpful. I also used the Kaplan book to study from, but ATI was more beneficial, in my opinion.
