Is nclex PN harder then nclex RN????!!!

  1. 0
    I'm getting nervous and my anxiety is so high.. 2 weeks from now I'm gonna challenge this nclex PN. I already quit to my job to focus to review but it seems I am not prepared. I'm also out of school for almost 4 years.. I don't know if my materials for my self review is good and helping me. Any suggestions and opinions guys? I really I appreciate that.


    I know this is very normal thingy to all of guys but I'm getting nervous cause my nclex PN date is coming nearer..
    I used exam cram 3rd edition (latest) when I try to answer it from the very first time I got 50% over 100 items then now. Then now after cover to cover reading of it I'm getting 80-90% consistently.

    i also used kaplan 2013-2014 strategies. I read it cover cover few weeks ago and answer the questions got 50% of it. I try some kapaln Q bank in my iPhone but its nclex RN I'm getting 60+% of it. I'm planning to reread this book this week.

    i'm also using saunders 5th edition (latest,the red one) I'm not finish yet reading it but when do the online evolve PN practice I got 66% in the pretest and do some practice test by category with different thpes of questions and getting 50-65%.

    I feel that both were about the same. I kind of feel like the RN was a little bit easier, but not really by much. Studying is so different for everyone, so I'm not sure I can give you much advice on that.

    Yes, I took PN last year and just did a bunch of questions through Kaplan because it was free through our school. I just passed RN this week. I didn't study. Just brushed up on lab values and such. I heard Hurst review was good. Maybe you could look into that.
