  5. ATI mock nclex
    I took it and got a 99%. When I took the NCLEX, I passed in 75 questions, so I think it was predictive for me. I didn't study much (about 10 hours) between the two exams. Good Luck!

    To my knowledge, only two in our class have jobs. My experience so far has been that recruiters don't really want to hear from us until we pass NCLEX. Some of my classmates have been harrassing HR...

    Get two sets of scrubs if you can afford it. You will be too busy doing your care plan to wash scrubs after you get home from clinical. Care plans usually take 6-8 hours.

    We used these in our program, and we were required to buy them, but I think it's more that the books come along with buying the computer part of the product. I thought that the books did a good job...
