    does anyone know if csn wants us to study for the ati exam on jan 6? would it be a good idea to study with the ati study guides anyway? and what percent do we need to pass this test?

    I was thinking that they told us NOT to study for this one. They want to see what our knowledge is like going into the program for the first time. I wouldn't even have a clue What to study. Orientation was the first time I'd even heard of "ATI" (not even sure what it stands for).

    can anyone schedule to take the ati test on their own at any time ? i thought i could pay for it and get it proctored at a college at the end of december. is that one way of doing it ?

    i remember that the nursing office people said that it would most likely be a math exam and there is no "passing" score per say (also mentioned in the orientation) ... the only purpose of the test is to find out, how far long/short majority of the nursing students' math skills are. . . i suppose you can review your math skills but they never mentioned anything about a study guide.

    ati is a company that specializes in giving out standardized exams, also reviewers (teas, nclex. . . etc.). i guess they're the ones that csn hired to handle their ati exam on jan 6th. ati exam is required to be taken with the rest of the accepted nursing incoming class for the semester. they will tell us when & what room we're supposed to take it and everyone takes it on jan 6th. it can't be "proctored" at a different school or at a preferred time.

    I didn't think it would have anything to do with math. All they said was it would be critical thinking. But if its math hopefully the toolbox class will help me with that lol.

    Do we have to be there at 8:30 or 7:30? I know on our papers it says 9am, but I was sure that one of the instructors at orientation said 7:30. Is 8:30 correct?

    I'm sure it's probably 9, but I've just been thinking for the past month 7:30 so when I went and looked at the paper today and it said 9 I started freaking out! I'm sure I just got it wrong though. I'm going at 8:30. Sorry if I caused any unnecessary stress.

    Haha!! Okay...that's good to know! Maybe you were remembering how orientation was at 8 and so most people were there by 7:30. I had to keep checking my paper as well to make sure it really said 9! Don't forget your yellow receipt for the exam!!
