Since I was looking everywhere for information regarding ATT and confirmation of my passing probability, I figured others may be too.. so here this is for future nurses!
12/5/2018: Applied to BRN
1/10/2019: School sent transcripts to BRN
1/15/2019: Application approved on Breeze (BRN) website
1/16/2019: Received ATT from Pearson
1/22/2019: Took NCLEX
1/28/2019: STILL WAITING FOR OFFICIAL RESULTS I got "the good pop-up" from Pearson Vue, but it isn't the same as seeing your license on the BRN.
** When I got ATT from Pearson, the closest test date available in a 50-mile radius was 2/7/2019. I signed up for that day, but I checked Pearson multiple times a day to see if someone had rescheduled, thus opening up a spot for me to test earlier. It worked. I rescheduled to 1/31/2019, but I still kept checking. Alas, 1/22/2019 opened up, and I jumped on it.
As far as reviews/studying for NCLEX, here is my data.
HURST: "Our recent study of pass rates revealed that Hurst Review students who were successful on the NCLEX®RN exam achieved a median score of 77 out of 125 on the Q Review."
Q Review 1: 86/125
Q Review 2: 85/125
Q Review 3: 93/125
Q Review 4: 92/125
Q Review Average: 89/125
** I only studied my weak topics/topics of high importance from the Hurst Review book before taking NCLEX. Fluid/electrolyte, endocrine, renal, and management of care. I utilized the majority, if not all of their practice questions and their Q Reviews. READ THE RATIONALES!
KAPLAN: From a 2014 quote, "The goal score for the Diagnostic and Question Trainers 1-5 is 65%. For the Readiness test, Question Trainers 6, 7 & all QBank tests, the goal is 60%. See Chapter 2 of your book for details."
From a 2017 quote, "...any score above 60% on the Readiness is favorable."
I didn’t do any of the Trainers – I only took the Readiness Test and got 63%
On the NCLEX I had 75 questions and finished in 1 hour. It was HARD. Majority were SATA. My advice to you: do practice questions, READ RATIONALES, take the night before the exam off to relax, BREATHE, trust your gut.
I can't wait to update you all with "I PASSED!" ....hopefully this week!
