I took nclex this morning

  1. I visit this forum often but never post. I thought I'd share my experience with boards. It was harder than I expected. Like everyone else has been saying, there were a lot of delegation/priority type questions. I thought they would be a little more cut and dry but I had problems with a few of them. I had 3 ob questions, a couple diabetes questions, 3 questions about glaucoma, and no drug calculations. There were also a few commuunication type questions but the options weren't like the standard answers in school. It cut off at 75 questions and I almost burst into tears right there because I felt as if I was doing terrible. I guess I'll find out Friday.

    Thank you for your imput on the boards. I am still waiting for my ATT . I am sure you passed.

    I hope you get your att soon. When you get it, may I suggest signing up to take boards at the earliest date possible. I could have signed up to take my earlier but I thought I'd need some time to study. The extra time didn't help much and the wait almost killed me. Anywho, good luck when you do take them. And thanks for the confidence. =)

    I think if it cuts you off early than it is a good sign.

    I'll be waiting for the post that says you passed! Try not to stress it too much, if at all possible.

    My test also shut off at 75 questions, so I know exactly where you are coming from. I keep checking my state board of nursing website to see if my license is up. I can't really eat, sleep, or do anything besides worrying about the Nclex. Good luck to you--I hope you passed!

    Thanks for making me feel better =)

    I have another suggestion for those of you who still have to take boards, get the Kaplan book. I didn't use it but today I went to a bookstore and looked through one...I was shocked at how similiar the content was and found myself wishing I had prepared by it.

    obnurse2004, I hope you passed! I said a little prayer for you!

    So Pcat,
    You think that the Kaplan had more questions related to delegation and higher level questions??

    I just flipped through it for a few minutes and didn't pay much attention to the delegation section.The section on Maslow's was very relevant to some of the questions I had. Mostly, I wish I would have known how to pick questions apart.
