I am scheduled to sit for the NCLEX tomorrow morning at 9:30am. I have been reviewing for about two weeks using ATI and Saunders. I do not feel prepared at ALL for this test. My question is, does anybody ever feel completely prepared? Is this a normal feeling? I got a 99% on my ATI comp predictor exam. I took a 4 day live review through ATI and was given more online assessments that I could take to study and learn my weaknesses however was told to aim at getting at least a 60% on them. Well, I only got a 53% in nursing care of children and a 48% in leadership.
I have gone back and reviewed the material I missed but I just don't feel like I am ready for this test. At this point it's too late to reschedule so I am just going to go for it and hope for the best. Fingers are crossed.

Best of luck tomorrow!! You're going to do fantastic!! If it makes you feel any better, I did all the ATI stuff as well. I scored in the same percentages in the same areas as you. I took NCLEX in December. 30 minutes, 84 questions, 75 were SATA. I honestly didn't feel the least little bit prepared for boards, but I made myself remain calm by saying, "It's only one test. IF I don't do well today, I'll come back and take it again. I worked too hard to stop now." (I will admit that once I got back out to the car AFTER the test, I boo-hooed all over my husband's shoulder...lol) I recommend that you wear comfortable clothes and a hooded sweatshirt over a tshirt. You won't be allowed to wear a jacket into the testing area, but a hoodie is okay. I'm not sure what the weather is like where you are, but since the testing facilities may be cooler or warmer inside, I'd wear layers that I can remove easily if it gets too hot. Other than that, relax and during the test don't forget to breathe. You made it through NS, you can do this too!!! Good luck, God bless, and sweet dreams tonight.
