Do you mean you want to know how many passed without a review course, or how many passed without working as a new grad....?

Sorry for not make my question clear. Yes, I want to know how many of you passed the board without working as a new grad. Some people said by choosing to work as new grad help them pass the board. But for people who did not choose to work as new grad, will they have a chance to pass the board?

Many NCLEX review people say that while you take the NCLEX, you have to apply NCLEX hospital practices that may differ comletely from the real world. Be careful.

I agree with this. Real world and NCLEX can conflict. In fact, I remember my professor telling me that we really shouldn't work on permit, because it may mislead you while observing people practice differently than the books; thus, applying real world practice to NCLEX which can lead to failure.

I passed the first time, and did not go into a new grad program.

My state doesn't have GN status. I had to have my license in hand prior to being hired.

That being said, my experiences helped me in clinicals, but the NCLEX is based on your knowledge and what you learned in school.

Do you think working as a new grad would have helped you on any other test such as your finals? No, probably not.

Just focus on studying for the NCLEX, and wait to worry about working until later.

I didn't work as a new grad, but I actively worked as a paramedic, which, in my opinion, made it much harder for me. One of my paramedic friends who passed RN last year said they would "beat the medic out of me" by the end of the program. It was a difficult transition.

Very true.

After graduation, I took some time and studied for the test, and applied for jobs with my license in hand :) For my classmates, working as a GN or not didn't make a difference in passing or failing: those who were going to pass, did.

I can tell you that after working AS a nurse for awhile, I might find it a bit MORE challenging to correctly answer some of those questions....NCLEX-Land is a Healthcare Utopia, not burdened by such things as limited resources, poor insurance reimbursements, tyranical administrators, short staffing. The correct answer is the one that does NOT take into consideration those things that affect Real World nursing.

I didn't take a review course and passed 1st time with 75 questions. I did study for 10 days just going over questions (1000's). However, I'm not sure that all the studying helped me because my particular test was HARD and there was not 1 question that I was 100% sure about.
