It's Official, I am Registered Nurse (RN)

Posted

Ok, I posted here before after my test yeasterday, and how I did the virtual ATI. Today I checked my board of nursing, and there was was two letters RN behind my name. It's official I passed the NCLEX RN with 75Qs. My advice for people. Use one source to study. I will advice people to do the virtual ATI because they have a coach that will guide you. Any questions on how I prepare further I am here to answer. Don't kill yourself over this exam. Goodluck y'all:)

congrats!! :)

@RN2BJ I did virtual ATI, used saunders, mary ann hogan, pda, nclex 3500. My best advice is to do lots of questions.

How was virtual ATI. As far as content did u read the Saunders chapters or just do questions on the CD provided with the book. And did u study system by system or just did question on any and everything everyday?

For virtual ATI, their contents contains everything you need to know for the exam, and their practice test mimic the exam as well. Their predictor and practice tests are way harder than the actual nclex itself. They summed up everything, pharmacology, pediatrics, maternity, med-surg, mental health, and all that in their learning activities. Try it you wont regret it on day of exam. With saunders, I read system by system and did pages questions, and used the CD to practice questions especially SATAs.

How long did Saunders and ATI take u to finish? I know have about a month because I rescheduled

Congrats I found out I passed yesterday too with 75 Q only took me 45 minutes!!!

If you put in like 6 hours everyday, virtual ATI can only take you two-three weeks to finish everything. I mean with going through the learning activities and taking the practice test and doing post-test assessment. For saunders say about a month if you want to finish the whole book. But I sued saunders while in school so I did littel reveiw of systems and areas where ATI think I needed remediation. I also used saunders for ATI remediation as well. The best thing is to practice questions and use saunders and ATI for content where you're weak. Re-read them over. Just follow the virtual ATI plan. They will give you a plan according to the information you provided to them. Goodluck.!!

Thank you!! I actually went with Hurst review I still plan on using Saunders for reference and practice questions on the CD and also PDA by LaCharity when my exam date approaches along with Kaplan strategy book just to go over the decision tree. Our school required us to take ATI 3day live review right after graduation and we received access codes for questions online so I'll do that too. Hopefully all of that is enough to pass!!!
