How I passed NCLEX PN on the 1st try with 85 questions!!!

  1. Let me start by saying thank you to all the members who are constantly sharing, asking questions and giving advices throughout their nursing journey.
    I recently took my NCLEX PN and passed. I promised I would share my success with you. I'll try to make it short
    To begin with I was NOT an A student, I struggled through nursing school but I never lost hope, I stayed focus and never gave up.
    we used ATI throughout the program and I wasn't really doing as many questions that I should've been doing. I was always on level 2 for all the subjects ( you'll know what I'm talking about if you use ATI.

    Last week of school I took the ATI predictor and got an 85% chance of passing the Nclex on the first try ( not that great).. so I went ahead and got the Virtual ATI after graduation. I started using it for few days and was even more confused so I stopped using it ( $300 down the drain)

    30 days before my exam I started using Uworld ( best decision ever). I did about 45-150 questions daily, scored anywhere from 48%- 70% . No matter what my score was I would only focus on the rationals ( knowing why I got it wrong or why I got it right)

    -I watched a lot of videos from YouTube ( registerednurse RN she's great)
    - Someone posted a study guide on this forum ( can't remember who) all I did was google PN study guide on allnurses and found it. I printed it (35 pages) and read it over and over and over ..
    - Listened to Mark Klimek audio, very helpful.

    - Most importantly I prayed like there is no tomorrow... Pray Pray Pray!! I can't stress it enough.

    - Yes I watched some videos, go over the study guide, did questions the day before and day of the test. I was sitting outside the testing center 30 mnts before my test and was reviewing...

    -" I can do all things through God who strengthens me." Was the only thing I wrote on my board while taking the exam.

    - it's ok to feel like you're not ready because you never will be 100% ready. Trust yourself and let God guide you....


    Ps: did the PVT an hour after my exam and got the good pop up
