Jan 22, '13Quote from kkostelnikPNSo i want to post my POSITIVE story for anyone who is scared for nclex. I know that reading other peoples stories helped calm my nerves! Well I graduated this December and took nclex-pn today (1/17). I got 85 questions and took about an hour. I did not think that the exam was very difficult. It was different than any test i took in nursing school being that it really required higher level thinking and application of the knowledge that i gained in nrsg school. I did very well in school getting all A's and B's. I was nervous today but very confident walking into the exam. To prepare i only did ATI tests. I did about 2-3 tests a day for about 2 weeks. Before graduation i got a 98% chance of passing nclex the first time on my comp predictor through ATI. The day before the exam i just relaxed all day, we watched movies, ordered chinese and just spent the evening NOT stressing!! My best advice is to test as soon as you can and do not stress out over it. You began preparing for nclex your very first day of nursing school! You can pass! just take practice tests and review the rationales, even when you get the answers right!! You are prepared for nclex! if you don't know it now you probably never will until you gain experience!!
So happy for you! I'm scheduled to take my NCLEX on the 1st and I'm scared to death!!! I'm really worried about the select all that apply questions, how many did you have and how difficult were they?
Jan 22, '13I had a lot of SATA questions, some a lot harder then others. I had to use a lot of critical thinking, because quite few questions I hadn't even studied.
