NCLEX/ ATI Test Prep and Review
ATI Test Prep during School and Post-Graduation
ATI testing is utilized during nursing school and post-graduation. ATI offers a wide variety of NCLEX® preparation assessments during nursing school. These assessments not only prepare you for the NCLEX, but they also help you gain critical thinking skills and a comprehensive nursing knowledge base needed to be a great nurse. Most vocational schools, colleges, and universities utilize ATI test prep and will not allow you to pass a class or complete the nursing program without passing the ATI exam.
NCLEX® Test Prep
You’ve finished nursing school. Now it’s time to practice your profession. Here are a few things you should know about the NCLEX®, the licensure exam you need to become a nurse, and your NCLEX® prep.
The National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX®), aka “The Boards,” is designed to determine that you’ll be a safe and effective nurse throughout your career.
When you are eligible to take the NCLEX®, you will receive an invitation from your nursing school.
The computer-based exam costs $200, and is offered throughout the year.
The NCLEX-RN® exam is pass/fail based on your ability to answer passing-level questions correctly. On Test Day, you will see anywhere from 75 to 265 questions and have up to 6 hours to complete the exam.
The NCLEX-PN® exam is pass/fail based on your ability to answer passing-level questions correctly. On Test Day, you will see anywhere from 85 to 205 questions and have up to 6 hours to complete the exam.
Multiple-choice questions on both the NCLEX-RN® and the NCLEX-PN® have 4 possible answer choices. Both exams also contain multiple-response, fill-in-the-blank, hot spots, chart/exhibit, and drag-and-drop question types.
When planning your NCLEX® review, it is suggested that you start prepping three months before the exam.
