Reschedule NCLEX-RN?!!

  1. 0 Ok so I recently graduated (4/5/13) and our school required us to get at least a 90% predicted probability on our ATI Comprehensive Predictor OR completion of a certain % of VATI. Well the 1st comp predictor I took I only got an 89% so I enrolled in VATI & began working on that. Then 4/22/13 I took another comp predictor at my school and got a 97%! The school released my certificate of completion and I scheduled my test date for 5/28/13 because I still wanted to finish VATI. Well I finished all the VATI subjects this past weekend and took yet another comp predictor via my VATI coach...BUT this time I only got an 89% AGAIN!!! Now I am so disappointed and I don't know if I should reschedule my test date or if I should keep 5/28 as my date...any advice?!!?

    Thanks Bruce... I am thinking the same and mainly because the next test dates are so far out... I feel like it may worse waiting longer.

    VATI is the Virtual ATI, a study tool for NCLEX where you review learning activities, take practice assessments in each category (Pharm, Med Surg, OB/Peds, etc), and based on your score you either remediate or progress. In the end there is a comprehensive predictor that your coach gives you and based on that score it gives you a predicted probability of your passing the NCLEX on the first try. If you do not get a high enough score you remediate for an additional two weeks and retake it.

    In my own opinion an 89% predicted pass rate is fantastic. 1% difference is statistically insignificant, if you take a 100question test and misread 1 question wrong and get an 89 instead of a 90 does that mean you don't know the information?

    Also if someone told me that if I rolled a 100 sided dice and I rolled a 1-89 I passed and 90-100 I failed I would roll that dice and If I misrolled, I would study harder and roll it again later.

    Keep your date. The longer you wait, the quicker you forget the information. Good luck!
