    Thinking about jumping ship, need perspective

    I am interested in getting into this. Do you mind sharing how you did it or who you work for?

    rn nclex failure x2

    Tell him to do Kaplan. Their diagnostic test can help tell him where he needs work at. Also look at the Lacharity Prioritization book which is excellent practice for those types of questions.

    Kaplan & Saunders scores for NCLEX RN (2nd timer)

    Your scores look great, I used kaplan too and never got higher than a 64 on the trainers and a 60% on Qbank. Passed Nclex the 1st time. Kaplan questions are much harder than nclex questions. Do the Sample tests that have the ALL SATA questions.

    ADN or BSN?

    Im married with 3 kids and decided to go the ADN route cause I needed to start working ASAP and so that the hospital I worked at could foot some of the bill for my BSN. Im happy with that choice.

    Lacharity...what's a good score

    My scores ranged from 54% (Hematologic Problems) to 94% (Cardiovascular problems). had alot of 60's and 70's. Passed Nclex the 1st time.

    Decided to try out Kaplan

    I used Kaplan for about 5-6 weeks. Graduated May 18th and tested June 27th. I had the Saunders book but didnt do much from it. Mainly focused on just Kaplan and doing the chapters in the LaCharity book. FInished all of those but a couple and didnt bother with the case studies. I scored 63's to 64's on my Qtrainers and a 60% on my Qbank. Passed the first time with 110 questions. Kaplan questions and SATA are much harder than Nclex. I did every Qbank question, every trainer, every sample test. I went back and created tests with just the Qbank questions I got wrong and redid those over again. I read every rationale for both right and wrong answers. It helped.

    NCLEX Pharmacology

    I really just looked at the most common ones, Dig, Lithium, Betas, ACes, ect. Thing is I only remember getting about 5 med questions, and it wasnt anything too crazy.

    Pearson trick fraud???

    Its been 100% accurate for my classmates thus far. Everyone who passed got the good pop up, one girl who failed was taken directly to the CC screen.
