75 "good pop up" Virtual ATI works wonders!

i took the nclex today and stopped at 75 got the good pop up right away. Felt veryyyy confident during the test and very well prepared from virtual ATI the question format was very similar and the content that your coach in ATI covers helps you immensely understand the disease processes etc instead of just learning how to answer a question. i'll let you know when i get the unofficial results

OMG!!!! CONGRATS, RN!!!!!!!!!!

Pls spill your secrets..pretty please! My school paid for VATI, and I'm having the BIGGEST problem with it. How do you follow their "schedule"? I mean all they have are the powerpoints and CT questions..and also a link to their textbooks. Did you read all of their textbooks, and then answered the CT questions and the "coded" assessments? Is that how you passed?

I test in 1 week!!! and I can swear to you that I feel like I have gained nothing from VATI. I just finished my Pharm assessment with a 75% ( a fool's luck..i must say), now about to do Med Surg. I will probably reschedule, I feel like I don't have enough time to review everything left! OMG!!!! I'm a freak show o'er here :uhoh21:

What's your advice?

I am also doing VATI and am on the fence with the program...what was your predicted probablity of passing when you did the NCLEX?

I know that feeling all too well..sadly enuf! I took my first ATI predictor in my last semester, and I got like a 89% prob of passing NCLEX first time. But I think I'm yet to take the other predictor test for VATI. How are you liking? What exactly are you doing? Do use study their powerpoints or what? I'm so lost!

I just completed it...I got a 90% probablity, but I don't want to take it till I have at 96%, from what I read some people dont even pass with a 94%. I dont test till the 28th of July. What I did was reviewed the focused review after my assesments over what I missed and did the critical thinking assignments my coach made for me. I did go over some powerpoints, but they dont really help me much. I too felt lost with it and ended up buying more books, flash cards, and also have the hurst review online (which I just think made me a little overwhelmed with all the resources).

I am also doing virtual ATI, I am only doing the assessments,my scores are low varying from 60-73, I am totally ignoring the content bc i dont have time.Can you please share how virtual ATI helped you and the steps you took. So far I hate it, and I'm hoping you have a better way to approach it. Thanks , hugs.

OMG! I know right!! I'm only taking the assessment too. I scored a 58% on Pharm the first time, and since their benchmark is 60%..I had to remediate. I didn't really go in depth with remediation since I started studying Pharm 2 weeks ago. I knew what my mistakes were, and some of the medications I got wrong..I haven't touched them yet. So on my second try, I got a 75%. My Fun skills and Nutrition, I got 66.7%. I don't know if I should be worried sick or just go ahead and test on the 16th.

ok throughout VATI i felt like i maybe wasn't getting what i should be but taking the exam the detail and questions they have you focus on in the assessments were right on

i used the books the power points and then i would write down the questions and the rational as i took the assessment and study those.

i took the exit exam at my school and got a 77% pass on the first time

throughout the VATI program i spent about 6-8 weeks on it but i spent 2 hard weeks on med surg - the end... i hadn't gotten my ATT yet so i didn't know when i was going to test so i did stuff here and there for 3 or so weeks for fundamentals and pharm.

all of my scores were around the 65% on my assessments i did the assignments before i took the assessments for all the exams except the mental health, and leadership ones... that seemed to help a lot what you have to look at is those arrows on the result sheet and if those are going up even if your percent isn't so much

my scores sucked though out the process mostly 60-67% on most assessments i got many 50-60% and then i would take an extra version of the test till i got around a 65+%

i was very nervous and didn't know if i was ready i took my predictor exam and i got a 63.3% with an 89% chance of passing on the first time. so i kinda got a green light.

go in get the ear plugs and take your time i took like 2 1/4 hours for just 75 questions ATI does prepare you well.

hope this helps

also you HAVE TO KNOW INFECTION CONTROL... pt x has this disease who would you put them in a room with etc.

i thought i hated it at times too but those scores are great and that puts you in the exact spot your supposed to be below i put steps

know your ABGs

infection control

delegation

and then the questions that ATI gives are harder than the NCLEX i thought

i bombed fundamentals i took 4 exams before i moved on i was freaking out but honestly all the fundamental stuff that i was missing was content that was reviewed in med surge and OB and peds you will be fine and a 75% is flipping awesome!! and so is a 66.7% all of that is above a 90% pass rate for ati

Don't keep studying pharm you will wear yourself thin the next exam will have totally different drugs that you were not studying because you were studying the ones that you missed the last time and you will get SOOOO much more drug practice with med surge all my drug questions on the NCLEX besides one were in a form of the disease process and figuring out what the person had not this drug does what....

i spent 2 straight weeks on med surge-leadership full force and was ready you can be too its just how much time you can put in each day and doing an assessment almost every day sometimes even two

ATI has a 97% pass rate on the first time for anyone scoring above a 90% on the predictor you are def ready

Funny you mentioned pharm, when my coach gave me the assessments, I was like:sh*t, I am going to bomb this crap, you can never study for it, looked over the powerpoints which didn't help at all. Hate to admit it: but even after googling every damn question, even google failed to help me and I got 58 % in pharm lol. I have asked thousands of people about nclex most of thm got 1-2 med questions, so I'm not even bothering to look up thousands of meds. I am only going to focus on the popular classes: beta blockers, ace inhibitors, calcium channel blockers, seizure meds, antidepressants, etc

I just wanted to let everyone know that i did indeed pass and am an RN I will always swear by VATI it helped me tremendously

good luck to you all you will be successful and i can't wait to be colleagues :nurse:
