Once you know your critical elements and gain confidence with practice, you will go ANYWHERE and pass. My students were passing at every site.... even at the sites that had a notoriously low pass rates, my student would be the only one out of 6 that would pass.
I usually recommend Madison sites, WI, SRMC in GA, Syracuse in NY, Amarillo in Tx
But sites do change, depending who they recently hire as Clinical examiners. Some CEs are little more "human" than others. I'm not trying to be mean and we all understand that all the CE's are required to be objective. And being a CE gotta be one of the toughest job there is. Can you imagine? The CEs don't know you and don't even know your background so they don't even know whether they should have any confidence in you and your skills. The only thing they have to go by is your performance that they observe over a 2.5 hour period (given different CEs are testing you during different PCSs). Just with this analysis, when they are passing you... they are saying you will be a good RN. That is one heavy responsibility!! So if they are critical, they BETTER be!
And it is my job to make you well equipped and prepared, to gain their confidence and get that pass no matter what site you go to!!
