Passed NCLEX RN 2012 with Kaplan qbanks/trainers

  1. 0 I have been on this site multiple times and found many encouragements from it as I study for my nclex and wanted to share my story. I only used kaplan qbanks and the trainers, my scores ranged from the 50s and 60s. I reviewed ever qbank and looked up anything I did not know or understand. I passed nclex on November 20th 2012 with 75 questions. I did the PVT about 15 mins after the test and got the good pop up. I called Virginia BON verication number the next morning and it was confirmed that I was officially a RN. The nclex had very basic questions, the kaplan in my opinion seemed harder then the nclex. I hope this helps anyone who may have had doubts about kaplan as I did at first. Good luck to the future nclex rn test takers.

    @nursingfem007 take a break when u get overwhelmed, I was feeling the same way and just took a day to myself to refocus, ur scores are similar to mine so I am sure you will do fine, just review and understand the rationale and try not to be sick to ur stomach as I was on the day of the test :-)

    @shakeys you can get the qbanks/trainers from the kaplan website, I'm not sure of the price as I got mine through my school

    @nursingbro you can get the trainers from kaplan website, but most of every thing I study came from the qbanks, I used the trainers just for more questions but the qbanks in my opinion is what helped me the most
