    One trending theme that I noticed on the NCLEX is safety precautions. What I did was made a list of all communicable diseases from scarlet fever to hep A to chicken pox. I didn't pay attention to all the details. I simply wrote: airborne precautions, contact, droplet etc. There might be several questions that might address this. Know how to move a patient safely. Know calculations. But practice as many questions as you can. That is the best way to prepare. I took both Kaplan and Hurst and hands down, Kaplan is better. It's everything that Hurst is plus more! Hurst will tell you that they will teach you everything you need to know (core information), but guess what, so does Kaplan and they have way more info and more practice tests. I hope this helps and don't give up! When you do the review questions, make sure you review every question after your get the results, including the ones you got right!

    I pretty much took every ATI Final I could from their website, if you score above a 60% I guess that means that you should do pretty well on the NCLEX. I also did 50-100 questions a day from Lippincott and Williams and NCLEX Made Easy. I thought I was going to fail miserably and I passed on my first try. Good luck!

    Shergillnav- calm down relax your nerves dont let it get to you. I was like that but i started to listen to joel osteen and he said if you cant say anything positive then just zip your mouth. God dosent it like when we talk negative because if we think were going to fail then we will. Say to yourself i will conquer this. Feed your mind positive vibes!! It will be our time to shine.. Good luck and let us know how it went.

    I just took my NCLEX RN today. 80questions.. I feel pretty good about it. I graduated in August 2012. So I waited 4months to take the exam! I did about a third of the ATI online review. And did about 300-400 questions on the ATI mobile app total in 4months. Haha I was very nervous... still am as I wait for results. I did the Pearson vue trick and got the "good pop up" so hope that is a good sign!
