NCLEX - Easier than school?

  1. Some will take this post negatively, and if you do then I'm sorry - I'm just trying to do my part to maybe help reduce the stress of some of the upcoming test-takers.

    I just took my NCLEX on Tuesday. 75 questions, 34 SATA, and I have to be very honest - the exam was far easier than anything I encountered in my last year of school. This might not be the case for some people, but I know that I can't be the only one who went to a school that administered difficult exams. Since I'm in Florida my license # went up on the BON website already and I already know that I passed.

    I'll keep this short and sweet. If you're still going to take the test soon, don't turn it into a boogeyman! It's just another exam and you might be pleasantly surprised. Just study as if it were any other NS exam!

    I thought it was hard as hell. So many factors to into it. Like how prepared we are, what areas we are strong in. But no, I def thought it was much harder than school exams. But I passed. So who knows.

    Thanks for trying to calm some nerves. Good to hear, well appreciated. Does the questions look like some thing you have come across before or not at all. Did you see topics you already know, and what resources did you use to study. Any of the resources you used similar to the Nclex? Thanks

    I found it easier than school. Granted our school exams in the last semester are all NCLEX style questions where all answers could be right.
