Is a week and a half long enough to study for the NCLEX? Our school required us to finish virtual ATI that took me over a month and I'm finally able to test now and honestly I just don't want to wait any longer. I'm scoring high and very high in readiness assessments on archer. I've heard every where from I don't need to study at all to that I should study for around three months. I feel like between doing ATI for months and then archer I'm studied out

This is entirely personal! One of my classmates studied for two weeks and passed. Others studied for awhile and passed while some failed. I know someone who studied 3 months and failed. That seemed a bit long for me but again it's personal.

I studied 4 weeks and passed using Archer and Klimek. I wrote out a study plan over 4 weeks just because I felt I needed a plan.

I'm not sure your state rules but I would also base this decision on how easily you can retest. In NY it's a 45 day wait but I've  heard in other places it's longer, requires a review class or limits how many times you can test. 

I know you posted in October, I'm curious what you ended up deciding!

hi Kate, I know you posted in Oct but wanted to Congrats on passing your nursing program. Regarding prepping for NCLEX, only you know if you are ready.  I liked ReMar Nurse for testing. The company has everything needed, plus Regina is an amazingly caring instructor. Wishing you the best Kate,
