PN vs. RN?

  1. 0 For those of you that were LPN's and went on to become RN' did you feel the NCLEX differed for you this time than from when you got your LPN?

    I feel better about it because I know more of what to expect as far as applying, waiting for ATT and test day proceedures, but what I am really wondering is how different are the two exams?

    We have been doing ATI's all through school and I am going to pick up my Saunders in the next couple of weeks. I used Suzannes plan for my LPN and am going to use it again since it worked for me. In school they had us using a Springhouse review, it's good but I don't like it as well as I did the Saunders.

    Thanks in advance.

    I did the NCLEX PN in 1992 and the NCLEX RN in 1994 - thought the PN exam harder just because it was new knowledge. I think any test taken first time is harder because of the learning curve. I did the NCLEX RN in 75 questions, 20 minutes from start to finish and thought "okay, what's next?" Really didnt' find it hard but then I had just done the LPN and RN programs back to back so I had a huge advantage.
