Heard from another nurse that 1 in 4 students will fail the first attempt at the nclex.... this goes for PN and RN....
When I look at the quarterly pass rates for the BON this doesn't seems to be correct.
So... I'm Curious....
The Commuter just took the words out of my mouth.
But to echo, according to the NCSBN 85% of US-eduacated people taking the NCLEX (PN and RN) for the first time pass it.
I did see on a site (Kaplan? NCSBN?) that they expect the 'failure' rate to increase 3-5% with the new passing standard that was implimented on 4/1/13.
My State's pass rate is always higher than the National average.
I passed both my NCLEX-PN and my NCLEX-RN the first time.
