I passed!

  1. 1
    For anyone freaking out because of all the people tha are coming here saying they failed, here's one that passed on their first try I will be honest, I did not study very much. I did the Hurst live review, watched their videos online, and did two practice tests with 125 questions each, and that's about it. I did a 3 hour study session with a friend two days before I took my exam and the night before I looked over my normal lab values to make sure I knew them (I would really recommend this, it was helpful to know for the exam). I didn't spend weeks studying, I didn't do thousands of questions, and I passed in 40 minutes with 75 questions.

    My biggest advice is test as soon as you can after graduating, I waited less than a month but in all honesty, I would have been ready just two weeks after graduation. The test itself I thought was a bit difficult (a lot of SATAs), and I wasn't sure I had passed as I felt like I was making a lot of educated guesses. But I got my RN license today, so even if you feel like you failed when you walk out, that doesn't mean anything! Good luck!

    You guys are so lucky to be able to schedule your tests so soon. I graduated December 14th and I haven't got my ATT yet. I guess our school will not have our degrees listed on our transcripts until January 7th, which is Monday.

    I graduated on December 14th, got my ATT December 19th, took NCLEX January the 4th.

    As soon as they email you the ATT you can set a date. I bet you could get in next week

    I graduated on the 7th and got my ATT on the 18th, that's crazy that you haven't gotten yours yet! My school is pretty on the ball about submitting things ASAP.

    Congratulations Racer15!!! I have a question did you use any of your old textbooks for reference I am starting my first semester and I am wondering if I should rent or buy my textbooks.

    I bought my textbooks because we used all of them throughout nursing school.

    Our final was December 4th, completion/pinning ceremony December 12th....no ATT yet. School submitted everything right after, everything is complete according to the board website, but still waiting for ATT, nobody from our school has gotten theirs yet. So frustrating!
