LVN's/LPN's who took the NCLEX-RN

Students NCLEX

HI!

I'm a LVN who just finished completed her BSN recently =o) and I was just wondering if any LVN's who took the NCLEX PN and who have also taken the NCLEX RN find any difference in both exams. I took the NCLEX PN in 2006 and all I remember was that the exam wasn't that hard in my opinion and I passed on the first try. I had about 120 questions. NOW, I'm studying for the NCLEX RN which I take in a week and I'm just soooo NERVOUS!!!! Does the difference only comes when you have to know what you're role is as a LVN or a RN? I entered a BSN program literally WEEKS after I got licensed as a LVN with no experience (just because of the timing of when I applied) so it was an easier transition to switch roles..... please help! =o(:banghead:

I took my LPN in 2000 and just recently passed the NCLEX-RN on the first try with 75 questions. I thought it was easier than my LPN. I think I was more scared this time and that i had to completely forget I was an LPN. The test was fairly easy. Just remember choose the answer as if you were a brand new RN just out of school.
