i just graduated in may 2002 and started working in a cardiac ccu at jewish hospital in louisville, kentucky. i am so excited about finally jumping into the world of nursing. (its kind of like clinicals but i get paid! ha ha) i am taking the nclex on july 13, 2002 and am very stressed out about it. so far all my friends who have taken it have passed but were so worried sick waiting for their test results. i guess that is part of the initiation of becoming a nurse. the nightmare of waiting for the results. if anybody has any good advice for me i am willing to take it. i did take the kaplan review course but i want any and all advice.
thanks for your help in advance!
i graduated in april and took the nclex june 25th and passed!! i too, was so nervous and even when the computer shut off at 85, i was like, "wait, i need more questions, lol'".....what i found to help, was taking many review tests/nclex preparation tests etc.....oh yeah, i took the exam on a tuesday and on that saturday, there was the letter that i passed in the mailbox! i couldn't believe it, since everyone told me that it would take 3-6 weeks. anyways, the day prior to the exam, i didn't look at any books, tried to relax and have a pleasant evening. i also scheduled the exam later in the day as i am not a morning person.
best of luck to you, i'm sure that you'll be fine. lol, i know that means nothing as people said that to me before the exam and even told me that you'll pass, lol......it left me still unsure of myself but now i find myself telling others the same advice.
hang in there,
