I just graduated on December 12th 2012. I received my ATT on the 28th of Dec and scheduled my NCLEX-RN for today Jan 3, 2013.
From the moment I graduated I began studying (for about 20 days) and I took the Kaplan course the very next day after graduation! I took the Diagnostic and got a 67% which I was told was really good. Here are the rest of my scores
Qbank-450 questions answered, 60% avg
QT6-64%-tired of studying-when I got this score I scheduled!
QT7-Skipped! Studying is sooo overrated, LOL!
Readiness Score-64.5%-taken on/around study day 5
I have read so many stories of others studying for months at a time. I'm the type of person who goes all in when I study. I studied from the moment I woke up until the moment I fell asleep with my laptop in my lap. At this moment my neck is in agony from staring at a computer screen so much and I think I lost some vision too, LOL! But I have to be honest...I was scared to take it as soon as I did. But I also didn't think I could be any more prepared.
I didn't use ANY other formal study guides! Just the Kaplan course materials and the "Study Guide" that is floating around this website.
I went to the test center in a daze not believing this was actually happening and I had the same thought as I was sitting there testing. I was praying SO HARD for the test to end @ 75 questions! I clicked "next" answering question #75 and then question #76 was there! I wanted to fall out of my chair! Lol! I said to myself I just need to get the next questions right because my life depended on it (Dramaqueen I know)! I really didn't want to go to 265! I answered that question and had a SATA next. My test screen went blue at question #77! I didn't feel like crying like a lot of people. I felt like I did my best and I hoped it showed!
As I was walking to my car I tried the PVT. And I got this message: "Delivery successful...Our records indicate that you have recently scheduled this exam. Please contact your Member Board for further assistance. Another registration cannot be made at this time."
So I think this means I'm an RN!!!
