EC students: how long did you wait to take NCLEX?

    How long did you wait from finishing the CPNE before taking your boards. Also, how long was it since your last EC nursing exam before you took the boards. I am having a hard time studying...

    I took my last nursing exam in October 2007, CPNE in June 2008 and NCLEX in August 2008. Studied using Saunders and the NCLEX 3500 CD-ROM. Good luck!

    It took 10 months to get a date for the CPNE? WOW!

    I applied in November 2007 and didn't get my date until April 2008... it was torture!!! Lots of students, not enough sites. I only wanted Mansfield, though.

    Lunah did you find it hard to start reviewing for the NCLEX? I feel like I need to review everything again which is very time consuming? Or did you just refresh your memory by answering questions?

    I started by using the Sauders book. I skipped to the end of each chapter and did the practice questions. If I did well, I'd move on to the next chapter. If not, I'd review that chapter before moving on. I also did a ton of practice questions on the CD-ROM. I felt like EC prepared us well for the NCLEX.
