Can somebody that has passed NCLEX RN tell me an average of hours to study per day to pass????For how long and what studying programme you followed... I mean, first read, then questions, then practice tests or what???

I passed NCLEX-RN on Monday with 75's what I did.

My school used ATI, so I used my comprehensive predictor to "focus" my studying. I also studied ALL of Saunder's Comprehensive Review for the NCLEX-RN. I graduated on December 15th and began studying on December 17th. I took every weekend off from studying as well as Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year's Eve and New Year's Day. Every day that I did study, I studied (and did questions) for an average of four hours.

I used Saunder's to review and I did between 2000-3000 questions (Saunder's and Mosby's.) If I got a questions wrong, I then went back and figured out why I got it wrong. For example, if I got a colostomy question wrong....I would review this topic.

Best of luck to you. Just pace yourself and you will be fine!
