Hello...

I want to encourage anyone about to take nclex.

I took nclex 2nd time and passed.

During the exam, i did not have that many Sata questions. I was freaking out because "people" say that when you get alot of sata that means your passing. NOT true. Out of the 126 questions I got, majority were Priority "first, most" etc. I probably only had 10-15 sata. I wasnt counting. But for those few sata I eliminated answers using T/F.Good luck everyone.

When I took the nclex (back in September.) I hardly had any SATA (maybe 10, possibly 15 but that's pushing it.) My classmates kept saying that they had "tons" and "tons" and it was making me really nervous. I did however, have quite a few "priority" and "delegation" questions. I had one drag and drop, and one picture question, and zero math problems. I ended up finishing in under an hour at 85 questions (the minimum for the PN nclex.)

- What I found interesting (that I later learned after taking the nclex) is that the "priority" and "delegation" questions ARE considered "higher level questions". Most people think that it's SATA questions that are "higher level", (wrong!) I remember having a SATA question (I can't go into specifics) but let's just say it was a question about a certain diet, and it was incredibly easy that I seriously couldn't believe my eyes. The trade-off for that question was having a delegation question regarding psych (my favorite subject) that made me wanna crawl under desk and find a way to teleport to another dimension.

- As long as you studied and prepared well, have some faith in your abilities, and remember how far you've come since starting nursing school, you can conquer the NCLEX.

Congrats on passing!! :nurse:

I had pretty much the same experience as you! Anyone wanting to know what to focus on, priority is a big one. 80% of my test was focused on that. Congrats! Passing NCLEX is the most amazing feeling! =D

I used ncsbn questions and content from hurst. My advice to you would be do whats best for you. I di not do alot of content, i felt as though 2 years on nursing was enough. My problem was learning to answer questions. Ncsbn was best for me because the questions were challenging. I would make notes as i studied the questions. i learnt to think critically. I also felt they concentrated on important things.
