So sacred to chk the trick but if I got the bad pop out can't face that this was my 4th try ok'd what to do.
Not many at all! The majority of my exam was prioritization. At the time, I had no idea of the "going thing" about the SATA. But if I had to guess, I would have to say that it was under 10. I had a few med questions that I swore the NCLEX created just for me because in my years as an LPN working med/surg, I had NEVER heard of those drugs until I took the NCLEX RN. There are different versions of the exam. My friends had some EKG interpretations and many fill in the blanks. My only fill in the blank was with my only math calculation. Thank God I had no EKG strips! There are just far too many nursing/ medical questions in the world that could be asked.
Personally, I would disregard what everybody has to say about the number of SATA or any other thing as far as that goes. And honestly, even though it was just 3 years ago that I took the NCLEX, I didn't have a clue what SATA stood for until AFTER my exam because I always saw the words written out and it was most times as CHOOSE all that applies, so I never made the connection.
