Taking NCLEX in 1 week (July 6th) HELP

Hey guys,

I got my ATT yesterday and I scheduled my NCLEX for next week July 6th. I graduated in beginning of May and have been using Kaplan & UWorld to prepare for the past month (and I found the 35 page study guide people have referenced on here lol).

Anyone who recently passed, do you have Kaplan QTrainer scores or QBank average that you had before you took NCLEX? Or a UWorld average?

I'm high 50s for both so I think I might be fine but if I need to be higher I wana know before I show up and test ahhhh!

Any help is appreciated xo

I did about 1,500 questions on UWorld with an average of 58%. Passed NCLEX in 75 questions. You're on the right track. Focus on rationales for each question, even if you get the question correct. Good luck!

@ erickz Thanks! I make sure I understand rationales fully before I move on....takes up most of my time actually lol. How long ago did you take it? How many Qs did you do a day?

I test the same day as you. I will finish Uworld before next week.

I am averaging 66%before doing the wrong ones again.

I have Kaplan and am avg 65% on that but I dislike Kaplan because of their lack of rationales.

@lauraingalls where are you taking it? I am only about halfway done with UWorld. I don't like Kaplan much either - not very helpful

I take mine 7/5. I'm using Kaplan exclusively. In addition to the 35 page review. My kaplan scores weren't all that Q1:44%, Q2:49%, Q3:52%, Q4:51%, Q5:57%, Q6:54%, Q7:58% and I finished my Readiness test yesterday with a 68%. I still have Qbank questions to do which I plan on completing by the weekend. Just remediate, stick with it, and practice practice practice ! We've got this :yes:

My scores are similar to yours - haven't done the readiness test yet tho! Good luck on your test let me know how it goes! Keeping my fingers crossed for all of us :)

Yea, and my scores have been better than my classmates who have already passed ! So that gives me some hope ! I recommend you try to do allll of the Qbank it really helped them. Good luck !

I took it on June 13th. I made sure I answered around 150 questions a day, which may seem like a lot, but it's worth it.

You got this though. Make sure you don't do any studying the day before the exam -- go do something you enjoy, exercise, read, whatever. Stay as relaxed as possible during the exam; anxiety can make things go downhill fast.

Good morning Xmarbear,

I had very similar grades on Kaplan and a friend had similar uworld scores, we both passed in a reasonable amount of questions (under 100). Point being, keep doing questions, read the rationales and you'll be a BSN, RN come July, 7th.

not sure if I'll have time to finish the entire QBank I'm trying to focus more on UWorld in the home stretch but I have over half the QBank done tho! Good luck to you too only a few days left!!

It's so hard not to be anxious ahh..I do around 150 a day between Kaplan and UWorld so hopefully I'm fine. Keep me in your thoughts I need all the good vibes I can get lol...thanks so much keep you posted lol

Thanks for the encouragement! Keeping my fingers crossed that I'm in the same boat as you we will see :)

ALSO I have a quick last minute question for everyone/anyone on here....do you guys have a list of meds that can be taken at night time / meds that can be taken with food / etc that they told us to make during kaplan? I had a hard time trying to figure this out. Thanks in advance if anyone can help!
