    Comparing a nurses' salary

    I agree with you RCBR. It is depressing. I am thankful to be offered a job but $20 a hour will barely cover my about $900 tuition bill along with other cost of living expenses. Yes we may be doing the same work but there should be some incentive for getting a BSN.

    Nursing is not what I thought it would be!

    WOW - I am a new grad looking for work and I hope to goodness I don't have to rely upon someone like MN-RN to help me. I was told some nurses forget what it is like to be a new nurse and comments like MN-RN make me want to run away on a one way ticket back to England and my mummy LOL

    that Pearson Vue trick...

    It worked for me too. I got the good pop up and quick results confirmed a couple days later. That same day I received a license # and letter from BON.

    In your opinion, how difficult are NCLEX SATA questions?

    BTW I got quite a few SATA, cardiac, one OB and several on pediatrics.

    I agree manzi_fly. I took the test on June 26th and found out I passed at 75 ?s. I didn't do much studying because honestly the test is not so much about spewing out facts but more about critical thinking. You have already built up a knowledge base in school and there is no way to cover all the content there could possibly be on the NCLEX. If anything study how to break down questions and if there is an organ system or specialized area such as peds or OB that you are terrible at perhaps just go over that. After taking that test feeling like I guessed on all of them I don't know if there is way to prepare for it except drawing upon what you have already learned. I am glad I never have to take that test again!

    In your opinion, how difficult are NCLEX SATA questions?

    I just recently passed at 75 questions and I had quite a few SATA that I am not very good at. I checked in my books on some of them after I got done and know I got some wrong by either just missing one or picking one too many. You CAN still pass the NCLEX with failing those. I did not do much studying at all because for one I am a procrastinator and hate studying and two a friend who had already taken it said not to study too hard. Most of it is not about being able to spew out facts. If you do any studying I would suggest sticking mainly to books which show you how to break down the questions and answer them. Another friend who passed said there really is not much you can do to prepare for this beast of an exam. I have never taken a test like it. Good luck!

    I got tons of SATA on my 75? test on June 26 and I think that although you don't get partial credit that you get some kind of "credit" within the CAT system itself. Reason I say this is because I stink at SATA and there is no way I got many of those right. I think it is all or nothing in regard to whether you get it right or wrong but there is something in the system that gives you a partial credit in regard to difficulty and grading your competency.
