hello to all

  1. hey people,

    haven't been around in a while. i guess i've been studying too hard. well, it's finally over! i have my asn and am ready to tackle the NCLEX. i've heard there are a few changes happening this year (format-wise). anyone heard anything? one thing i noticed about this program compared to the lpn program is the amount of self-study you have to do. i was spoon-fed during the lpn program! what a wake up call the rn program was. i almost didn't make it during the cardiac/hematological/respiratory semester. i had a 67% for about a month and was stressing beyond belief. passing is 79% that's when it hit me, "study your A$$ off or come back next year". let me tell you, that is one hell of a hole to dig yourself out of when you're down that low. well i ended up passing with an 81%. my first "c" :angryfire oh well, i look at it this way, none of my future patients are going to care how i did in school just as long as i give them the best care possible. anyhow....congratulations to all 2004 graduates! best of luck on the NCLEX! chris

    The NCLEX now has some of the new format questions (fill-in the blank, check all that apply, etc). Kaplan has a book out will 250 of just these type of questions. They have also changed the test set-up. There will be less OB and Peds, but twice as much Pharmacology. I am taking mine June 9th--GOOD LUCK TO ALL!
