Clinical Exemplar

ATI Comp Predictor Practice B Reflection

ATI Practice A Comprehensive Predicator

ATI Practice A Comprehensive Predicator

Reflecting on my most recent ATI exam as of April 1, I’m feeling more and more confidence and comfortable about taking the NCLEX. I’m smarter then I think, and really need to continue to read all of my options and go with my gut instinct. I have found my biggest NCLEX category weakness has been the Pharmacological and Parenteral therapies. Because out proctored pharmacology review was moved to next week due to covid, i have even more time this weekend…
