NLN Exit Exams vs. NCLEX?

  1. Hello all. I was wondering if anyone who has taken the NLN exit exams and already taken the NCLEX could tell me how they compare. From what I understand the NLN exit exams are supposed to be predictors of how you will do on the NCLEX. As a requirement of my program we had to take the NLN Pharmacology and the one that had everything on it. I scored in the 90th percentile on both. But I guess what I'm really wondering is...how do the questions compare? Are they similar in format and difficulty? Thanks for any input.

    First of all, I think that all of these tests i.e. HESI, NLN etc are providing false reassurance. Remember, the bottom line is the almighty dollar. Businesses like HESI and ERI have infiltrated the schools and are giving tests to students and trying to predict their ability to pass the NCLEX! THe schools have paid major bucks to these companies and for what???

    Research has shown, students need to take a good review either live or online and forget about the scores on these ridiculous tests......I will post the nursing magazine this article was written in for you guys is you like.
