hi to everyone, i kind'a need help about the nclex rn exam, cause i already got my ATT and been reviewing (using saunders,Dr. martin's stuff) and answering some Q&As and i also have ATI but i only do the Q&A part. and most of my score are in the range of 60-75%. i bought the la charity prioritization and my scores are so low like half and below (it's kind'a depressing) and i wanna take the exam this may. does anyone have an advice for me? and may i ask is the nclex rn exam similar to the la charity/mosby's/ATI/saunders questions? and need tips for delegation and assigning float rn's. THANK YOU!
Your scores are very good if you're referring to ATI! They should tell you in your results how you compare to the national average as well as what tier you're on (I believe level 1 & 2 both indicate an excellent chance of passing NCLEX).
My school used ATI extensively and it seems to be a pretty good indicator of passing vs failing NCLEX the first try.
You should aim to do at least 100 questions per day, and make sure to review groups of meds (antibiotics, antihypertensives etc) as well as isolation precautions and prioritization!
I used Kaplan for a couple weeks just using q bank questions and felt like that prepared me just because those questions were more challenging than NCLEX but VERY similar in style, and they used TONS of prioritization questions...it's expensive but worth it IMO.
No one is ever truly prepared for NCLEX, since the test basically learns what your weaknesses are while you take it and focuses on them, making everyone feel like they failed no matter what. It also gets more difficult as you answer more questions correctly. Just stay calm, and remember that you graduated nursing school and you know this stuff!!!
