Taking the NCLEX in January? Stop in here...

  1. Just wondering who's taking the NCLEX in January and what you are doing to study? I graduated this week w/ my AAS in nursing and I'm trying to spend 2 hrs a day studying using ATI, Saunders and a couple other NCLEX books. I'd like to test at the end of Jan. Start my job on Jan 21st.

    Introduce yourself!

    I am testing mid Jan.

    I studied for the last week about 2 hours a day. I am taking off the week of Christmas-New Years.

    Starting Jan 2 I am planning on spending a good 4-6 hours a day. I am mainly using Saunders but I do also have Lippincott, Kaplan, and Mosby CD's.

    I hope to test in Jan. My application is in, background check done, officially graduated December 21st, paid the test fee - waiting for the ATT.

    I am taking Kaplan face-to-face. Using their online resources, too.

    Taking test in January. I wrote some lab values. I feel I am missing some main lab values. Any suggestions or a list of lab values to study?

    I got my ATT today and registered to take the NCLEX on Jan. 23rd!!!

    They had dates has soon as next week! My husband thought I should take it ASAP but we have had some trouble with results being delayed d/t the SON not sending transcripts. I figured school starts back up on 1/14 so that gives them a week to get my transcripts to the BRN before I test.

    I graduated on Sunday the 16th and had my IP on Thursday. I've already been to work one day and will work full time from now on! I'm not taking any time off to study, which I might regret, but I'll get some practice questions in for sure.

    Good luck to all!!

    I graduated December 15th and I am taking the Hurst live review, using Suzanne's plan, and reviewing with a website sponsered by my job.


    I want to test in January, haven't gotten an ATT yet.

    I'll be testing in Janaury also, and am just using Saunders and ATI practice tests.

    At the moment I just finished Patricia Cornwell's new book, and I am in the middle of Tess Gerritsen's latest. Gotta have a week of fun before I delve back in!

    Got my ATT yesterday and am testing January 8th! - EEK! Sooner than I thought but less time to worry about it. I start my new job on the 21st so I may even have results by then!
