The first thing I learned about the Ati type of tea was that it is much stronger than the regular type of tea. It is much more bitter, so you will need a little more patience to learn how to properly brew it. But if you are prepared to put in the work, then this type of tea could provide a really big boost to your nursing career.
There is no doubt that time is always a big factor when choosing examinations. With all the preparation needed to pass the NCLEX-RN, time must be your biggest consideration. If you’re a new nurse just starting out, you may feel that time is best spent doing the more practical skills training required for passing the NCLEX-RN. But if you have been nursing for a while, and you feel that you could use some professional development time as well, you might want to consider putting off the practical part of the exam until later.
Choosing your area or state is important, too. Because the NCLEX-RN receives its certification from the states governing body, the conditions of each state can affect the type of course you can take. For example, if your area requires higher educational standards, you may find that taking a shorter course time is a better option.
I did some research on my own, too, before I got the job. I looked online for reviews of local testing sites. What I found surprised me a lot. A number of the reviews I read gave recommendations for what to look for, such as the number of questions, and types of questions that are commonly taken. Also, many reviewers noted that tester should have realistic expectations about how much they will actually study.
That is a critical piece of information that I think is very important. I’ve seen plenty of nurses who do not know what the NCLEX-RN entails. So when they start their examination, they are way behind schedule. Not only do they run out of time before the examination is over, but they also get really discouraged because they don’t know what they will have to study. This can throw them off completely, which is why it’s important to keep realistic expectations about the amount of time that will be spent studying.
So what I did to prepare for the Ati Teas examination was to purchase practice tests that I could take in my own home. Since I was also a part-time CNA, I had much more time than most nursing assistants to complete these tests. I also had a great deal of confidence in myself, which is something that many testers don’t have when they first start taking the exam.
Once I got the job, I asked my boss if I could take a vacation during the months that the NCLEX is being administered in my area. They were more than happy to let me, since it was still going to be a busy time for them. I took my Ati Teas in my hometown, which was actually close to where I worked. I made sure that I had plenty of time to study because I knew that I would probably not be able to make it back to work for several days after I took the exam. Luckily, my boss was understanding of my situation, and he let me go.
