Besides, is UWorld harder than Nclex RN?

Yes, UWorld is more difficult than the NCLEX. I say that because the last 5 times I've taken the NCLEX, I got so many SATA questions that I had less difficulty answering them this time around, all because I did UWorld.

Similarly, what percent do you need to pass Nclex? 50%

In this way, how long should you study for Nclex RN?

To pass the NCLEX, students should plan to spend a minimum of 1-2 month studying – effective and targeted studying. If for whatever reason, the test-taker does not pass, it is possible to retake the NCLEX after a 45 day waiting period.

Is Nclex harder than ATI?

The school I went to used ATI. It's similar, but any program used to prepare you for NCLEX is going to be. That's what they're designed to do, and lots of research goes into creating the questions and tests. In my opinion the ATI tests were harder than NCLEX.
