I am a student nurse and was asked to sit in on a commitee about the nursing program curriculum. This meeting had a representative from a company that provided NCLEX type of testing each semester and covered each area covered in a nursing program (Med-Surg, Peds, etc). The company was called Assessment Technologies Institute. They asked my opinion about the program following the presentation.
It would cost student over $450 extra for the program books, and would make the student have to sit for an hour or two extra for testing each semester. But, I sort of liked their online pre-testing options (that showed rationals) and knowing that what we are getting taught is going to actually help us when we sit for the NCLEX.
So, I am wondering if any of you had this kind of testing at your school and what you thought about it? Right now, my school has a 99% pass record. So, Please let me know what you all know about the program and what you think about it!
