I live in Ohio too!! Wonder if it's just those instructors in Ohio that make things so difficult! Maybe it's in the water?? lol
Frustrating, yes it is. And I am bound and determined to make it the first go round. As I said before, I have only until June and then I'm done! Don't think I could wait to come back and try it again. Besides, I'm getting too old for all of this stress which is definitely not good for your mental health nor you body!
Hmmmm, think I remember a lecture somewhere on that subject. Wonder why they can't practice what they teach.
I have Lippencott's, Mosby and Saudners NCLEX reviews. I especially like Saudners because you can customize the content of what you want to study. And as for the HESI, we have to take that at the end next quarter before we graduate. Luckily for me another student got a copy of it through an instructor at another school that she was friends with. Yep, we've been studying from that one too.
I know that we've been told the test questions are bank test questions from the books we use, but honestly, I don't buy it one bit. I agree though, someone needs to warn the 'new' students of what to expect.
