hi all other future and current nurses!
i wanted to thank all of you for your stories and inspiring encouragement about your nclex experiences. i really feel like this website is the reason i passed my nclex-rn this passed weekend.
first off, making to graduation was my sole priority throughout nursing school. i never thought at all about nclex until i recieved my att. even while registering on pearson vue, i still had another 8 weeks to finish school and never gave it a thorough thought as to what i should do to pass it. school was tough and i figured i had to make it to graduation before i even consider nclex.
when i recieved my att, i had been out of school for maybe 2 weeks. i was just starting to somewhat relax.....then the chaos started. i didn't have the money to pay for fancy prep classes and scoured the internet for days trying to find the 'best' study materials, but that was fruitless as well. then i found this website and i was positively thrilled to find a collaborative site with real forums of people just like me trying to make it through nclex-rn alive. the resources suggested on this site were truly helpful and i wanted to pass them on to others. there were many suggestions so i only picked these because of the price and constant attention they recieved on this forum.
1. kaplan 2012-2013 nclex-rn (the green book. i found it on amazon for 20.00)
2. lacharity priority,delegation, and assignment (amazon 16.00)
3. mosby's medication cards w/ mneumonics (flashcard set- amazon- 25.99)
other than those, i researched any unclear information in my textbooks from school. i really felt like the questions on nclex-rn were very similar to these 2 books. whenever i didn't get a question correctly, the books offered clear reasons why the choices were right or wrong. if i was still unclear... i looked it up to clarify further. nclex asked so many different types of random information that it was ideal that i studied every page in both of the books....twice. for me, it helped me to retain the information better. i also made a point to memorize the important reference ranges listed in the kaplan book. very helpful!!! knowing what is normal vs. abnormal is a huge advantage on nlclex.
i hope this helps someone else and thanks again for helping me!
