Hi there, I've just read your quote and I have to say that these are the tactics that I'm hopeing to use! I have been trying to study the CRNE Prep Guide but to be honest I don't really know how you are suppose to revise for this kind of exam. One of my problems is that I am presently working in the UK and although I have been a working RN for quite a few years, because they could ask just about anything I'm really lost regarding the best way to study.
Your quote cheered me up because I think that's the way I have to go.
Thanks, when did you sit the exam and did you past first time?
Hi, I'm not SaskRN, but I am her husband, and we actually took the exam together, so I thought I'd throw my two cents in, if that's ok with you.
We took the test several years ago, but at that time people seemed to be going through the same issues and anxieties that they face now. Remembering back, we didn't study at all because, really we didn't know where to start, and we figured that we had to know this stuff by now! :chuckle
So, we just tried to relax, read the questions really thoroughly, take our time, and pull from everything we learned. I have to say that I didn't think it was a tough exam. We also took the NCLEX the same way, with the same results.
We both passed the first time. A good friend of ours who had been an RN for many, many years reminded us "Always pick safety first", and we definitely did that as well.
Best of luck to you! You'll do fine!
