Hello AN family!

I took the NCLEX on Tuesday at 8 a.m. The computer cut off at the minimum amount of questions (85)...so I thought, "I either did really good or really bad". I really could not tell. Since its CAT (Computer Adaptive Testing), I was on a really good path or a really bad path. I had a sick to my stomach feeling all of Tuesday and Wednesday. I looked at so many thread here and online. I woke up this morning super early (like 4ish), checked the state board's verify a license website, and my name had the LPN next to it (I am already licensed as a Pharmacy Technician here in Michigan, so I already knew my name would be listed). I didn't even have to wait the entire 48 hours and pay the 8 bucks for the quick result.

I cried happy tears! Had a praise session on the bathroom floor at 4 in the morning. I'm officially an LPN :nurse:!

I had a lot (like A LOT) of SATA and prioritizing (who would you help first). Almost all of the nursing staff the entire program warned us that digoxin may be used on the NCLEX, and it was. I only had one drug question, it was on digoxin, so you know I got that one correct. I only had two drug calculations, I was disappointed because I'm really good at those.

I studied using Kaplan's online Qbank questions (I also took the 2 day class), used Exam Cram, ATI's NCLEX-PN, and a 35 pdf I found here on AL. I honestly gave studying a break after graduation (in August) until after my wedding/honeymoon on October 10, 2015. I did Kaplan questions twice a week though (from August to October).

I'm so freaking happy and excited for this new journey. I am now registering for an LPN-RN bridge program next fall.

Hi, I just applied to Davenport U and wanted to know what your scores were for the Teas V? I'm so nervous but ready. I know its competitive but not what the average acceptance score is. Please respond as I am so nervous

Don't be nervous. I believe I was in the 60s and 70s for percentages, but I can't recall the actuals. DU doesn't have a waitlist like most schools, so as long as your scores are "okay"...you'll be fine. I transferred there from Henry Ford after I got my acceptance letter.
