Preparation for Licensure and Transition to Professional Practice

Preparation for Licensure and Transition to Professional Practice

Throughout this semester, we were challenged with many ATI and remediations to become better students, nurses, and test takers. When i first started, I was taking the questions way too fast. This resulted in me missing important information in the questions. As the semester progressed, I became more cautious of my testing time, and on this last proctored comprehensive exam, I was able to breathe and slow down. I also became better at eliminating options that I knew were wrong,…

ATI Comp Predictor Practice B Reflection

ATI Comp Predictor Practice B Reflection

During this ATI, I feel as though I did pretty good! Its all about balance and continuing to go with my gut. As a future nurse I have realized nursing is a career of constant learning. No one person will know everything and there’s always room for improvement, which is OKAY! I believe i’ve come a long way since I first started college and Nursing school. I was not the best test taker, I was very smart and a hard…

AIT Adaptive Child Quiz

AIT Adaptive Child Quiz

I took my adaptive chid ATI quiz the other day, and things are coming together. I’m become more confident on understand why i’m choosing the answer I’m choosing. Its all about expected vs. unexpected, chronic vs. acute, stable vs. unstable, and more. Is your patient going to crash if you don’t visit them first. I’m also getting the hang of rationalizing my decision to choose something before I commit to the answer! This reassures me that it will likely be…

ATI Proctored Pharm Exam

ATI Proctored Pharm Exam

During our ATI Proctored pharmacology examination, taken in class, i scored a level 2! This was wonderful and is within range, even a little bit higher than the national average. I’m always worried about pharm as I second guess my abilities at times, but this reassured me I know a lot more than I think I know. We have learned so much in Nursing school, and a lot of it is stored information. We just need to continue to polish…

ATI Pharm. Practice B Reflection

ATI Pharm. Practice B Reflection

To begin, weirdly enough I’m starting to enjoy taking the ATI Practice exams! These are great ways to identify areas that I need to study more, and rule out areas I’m proficient in! For Pharmacology Practice B, although I’ve started review NCLEX on my NXLEC prep study guide, I still need to review more before the big day! I have finished review the simplified PDF from a nurse, but now it’s time to start looking through all of my pharmacology…

ATI Pharm. Practice A Reflection

ATI Pharm. Practice A Reflection

ATI Pharm. Practice A was very help for identifying areas that I need to study more before NCLEX! My biggest NCELX pharmacology category is specifically “Pharmacological and Parenteral Therapies”. This makes since as I want to review different adverse reactions, medication interactions and more. Before taking this exam I started to review and skim through the basics on a Pharm NCLEX study guide. This definitely helped me with some patient teaching and safety for medication administration. This is a step…

Attaining and Protecting Your Professional Nursing License

1. Where (what state/territory) do you intend to become licensed by examination, and is this a Nurse Licensure Compact state?  I intend to become licensed by examination in the state of New Hampshire. I’m choosing New Hampshire for many reasons that I’m excited for! For one, my entire family lives in NH and I’m very much a homebody. I can secondly save money while living at home for a year or two with my parents while paying off loans and…

ATI Adaptive Maternal/Newborn Reflection

ATI Adaptive Maternal/Newborn Reflection

This ATI went pretty well as I’m slowly improving my test taking skills and strategies. To begin, I became better at priority questions. Which patient is the most critical, which patient would I see first. This is very important in any medical setting as I will have many different patients, and it’s up to me as the Nurse to critically think who would need the most help and who would I see first. This is something I’m proud about, but…

ATI Adaptive Medical Surgical assessment

ATI Adaptive Medical Surgical assessment

This adaptive test I took too fast.  First off to begin, I’m writing these first two reflections at the same time as I didn’t fully understand we had to also reflect on the eportfolio.  Knowing this, I will focus more in the future related to things I discussed related to my ati Pharm reflection, as well as my reflection now related to ati medical surgical adaptive quiz.  My first fault here was I went too fast.  I was constantly looking…

ATI Adaptive Pharmacology assessment Reflection

ATI Adaptive Pharmacology assessment Reflection

The ATI adaptive Pharmacology assessment went better than expected for my frist adaptive quiz this semester.  For one, I ranked in the “Hard” category which is a wonderful start! Although it was 17th percentile, the fact that I made it to the hard was reassuring.  This was something that went well.  Something that I realized is I want to review pharmacology drugs in general, and review patient teaching and side effects.  I found this great PDF with common medications nurses…
