    AVANT HEALTHCARE

    Honestly, I felt really at ease when I realized that the NCLEX Exam questions are not as weird or as hard as I thought they were. At first I was anxious thinking that I might get all those out of this world questions but I didn't. I realized that Phase 2 Comprehensive exam is a lot harder than the real NCLEX Exam. I didn't read any other books. I just used all the books Avant sent me. Illustrated guide is a big help for content review if you need a refresher for nursing concepts. Nursing made insanely easy was helpful in remembering salient and important points regarding each concepts. I seriously didn't like the Pharmacology Made Easy book, I went back to the Pharmacology section of the Illustrated guide for Pharma topics. How to Pass NCLEX 101 and Strategies in NCLEX RN (Kaplan) were great books as well. I read them from cover to cover and took all the practice exams including the pre and post test and the comprehensive exams to simulate the real NCLEX exam.

    I tried it multiple times already and it wouldn't let me re-register. If it's accurate, then that would mean that I passed, but of course I would still wait for the official result.

    Hmmm took the NCLEX RN yesterday (December 3). My test stopped at 75 and I got a lot of SATA (as early as item #6). There were multiple times when I was getting 5-7 straight SATA questions until my test ended. I am more anxious now than ever to see the result. If my instinct was right, I would get a PASSED result. I think, AVANT's review program for NCLEX RN prepared me well for the test because the actual exam never freaked me out not even once. The comprehensive exam in Phase 2, I think was harder than the real exam.
  7. Hello there, just took my NCLEX yesterday (December 3) and tried the PVT 2 hours after my exam and got the good pop up. I tried again in 4 hours, 8 hours and 20 hours and still showed me the same thing. I've never tried again after 24 hours though. By the way, I did try it (this time 24 hours passed by) and still showed me the good pop up...tomorrow, I won't have to try it again because most likely, either the quick results are in or the Texas Board of Nursing has updated their website. (keeping my fingers crossed) Let's see if the trick really works. I hope it does. Haha.

    Pearson Vue Trick Feb 2016

    Hello there, I took my NCLEX yesterday (December 3). Right after going home, I tried the trick and I was so relieved that it didn't allow me to register for another exam. I tried again after 8, 24 and 36 hours and it still did the same thing. I noticed though that the status of exam is RESULT NOT AVAILABLE. Is it possible that it allowed you to re register for another exam when you tried doing it simply because the initial order's status has been "DELIVERED"? I read in different blogs as well that there were people who were charged $200 when they tried the trick. As for me, I will be waiting for my quick result and see for my self if the trick really works.

    Hello there Kisheen. I think you and my friend follow the same schedule. You're right, it's challenging but I'm more excited to take the NCLEX now. It is indeed an intense review and hopefully, it yields to a good result for me. Goodluck on your review. I hope the next time I post in this thread is the time when I would gladly tell everyone my test result.

    Hello fellow nurses, I'm a Filipino RN working in the Philippines. I have signed up with Avant and has been in close contact with them since February this year. Is there anyone here who's taking the NCLEX on December 3, 2016? Are you guys ready? Haha, how are you taking it? I'm almost done with PHASE 2, I only need to answer one more CTFL exam and comprehensive exam. My test scores are ok (ranging from 75-79%). When I got my schedule and one of them called me, I asked them if they think I'm ready for NCLEX, they said without any hesitation YES. So basically I'm just counting down to my test date. I hope everything goes well.

    Hello there, I'm a Filipino Nurse too, currently practicing in the Philippines. If my memory serves me right, I think the online presentation is basically an introductory/ orientation video of what Avant is.

    2010 board passer, did not practice nursing ever

    I had a fair share of equally traumatic and frustrating experiences too as a student but don't let all those things make you doubt yourself as a nurse. Things we learned as student nurses are entirely different when you are already working as a real professional nurse. Learning continues until now and as long as you are eager to learn and you are doing no harm to your patients, I'm pretty sure you'll be okay. Just think about this, you've surpassed four years of grueling nursing school, and you've also passed the board exam. Don't you think these things pretty make a strong statement that you have the necessary qualifications to practice as a nurse? Remember, not everyone is as privileged as you are so go and start becoming the awesome nurse that you are!

    10 Years in a Call Center but wants to be a Nurse already

    Taking the NLE is the first step unless you wanted to be a caregiver or a nursing aide/ unlincensed assistive personnel/ orderly abroad.

    2010 board passer, did not practice nursing ever

    It's never too late to consider a change of career specially if you are considering a move back to nursing. I made that move 4 years ago after years of contemplating it. It was not an easy choice, my whole world turned upside down and going back meant giving up the career, salary and the corporate culture I had gotten myself attached and accustomed to. I heard, some changes were already implemented in terms of getting an RM license. You probably would need to take required academic units from any qualified schools offering midwifery before you are allowed to take the RM board exam. If possible, try looking for a hospital that could employ you as a staff nurse then take the training, additional licensure etc., once you have gained the hospital experience. Additional trainings/ qualifications do not necessarily increase your chances of being hired as an entry level nurse and landing a job in any hospitals isn't really easy at all.
  15. I don't think so greenjungle. The need didn't really decrease, it's just that the whole process takes a lot of time for a Filipino Nurse to qualify and work as a nurse in the US because of the tedious licensure and immigration requirements and the EB3 Visa retrogression. I am very optimistic though that in a couple of years, the EB3 Visa Bulletin for the Philippines would be current again and more and more Filipino Nurses would be able to live and work in the US again.
