Hi, I am a student nurse scheduled to take the NCLEX-PN on November 22, 2016. One month ago, I was looking for advice on what NCLEX reviewer is good. I looked in this site and finally decided to pay for UWorld one month because of the good reception it got from forum users (I saw a lot of post on this site say "Passed on the first try with UWORLD.").

Despite their good reviews, I was discouraged from using Kaplan or Hurst because of reviews saying, "Failed NCLEX two times using Kaplan and Hurst. Finally passed with UWORLD." So I went with UWorld to help me prepare for the NCLEX-PN.

After three weeks, I've used up all 1133 questions available in the NCLEX-PN QBank. I felt that this reviewer really helped me with the questions that reflect what is going to be in the actual NCLEX and the rational for the right answer. At the end, I got 47% total correct and 51% total incorrect and in the Percentile Rank it says I'm 32th rank while the median is 48th rank. Is this a good score? I saw posts in allnurses.com that say that people using UWorld passed because they get 50%-60% total correct. I heard from a post that the tests of UWorld are supposed to accurately represent questions in the NCLEX.

With my scheduled test one week away, I am really anxious about this since I really want to pass NCLEX-PN on my first try. Am I at risk of failing the NCLEX-PN?

I'm using UWorld now for my test December 6 and right now I have a 52% overall so far but I'm not done with all the questions yet. Go back over the ones you got wrong, see if you can improve your percentage. I'm sure you will pass on the first try, so please keep us posted and good luck!
