I am not trying to start a name callin, flame throwin, out and out brawl with this. I have a legitimit question for all you good folks out there.
I have heard, and stated in the past, that the NCLEX-RN seems to be much harder in comparison with the NCLEX-PN and that more people seem to fail the NCLEX-RN. This is where the ADN vs. BSN comes into play.
Are there two seperate NCLEX-RN tests based on whether you graduated with the ADN or BSN?
I know that in this area the BSN requires about 2 years more school and wondered if this may be the reason that some are failing the NCLEX. I mean, really!!! That makes sense. If I went through a two year ADN program I would probably have more problems taking the same test that the girl/guy next to me is when they have a 4 year BSN.
I hope this post makes sense to ya'll as I am very scatterbrained right now.
Very briefly, the NCLEX-RN is the same exam whether you matriculated into and graduated from an ADN or a BSN program.
I'm in an ADN program. I will not comment on BSN programs as obviously I'd have no idea what I was talking about. Our program has a 97% pass rate, but I have a sneaking suspicion its because they make the third semester so difficult that half the class flunks out. Sort of a weeding out thing.
