so i just graduated last week and was cloud 9 unitl i started the kaplan course this week. i left ns feeling comfortable and self-confident with passing the nclex.i had always studied really hard during ns and did well on our test.now, im doing terrible according to kaplan and have a low chance of passing boards.my friends seem to be doing well on their test and are suppose to have a great chance at passing boards.whats wrong with me? how did i go from being a b student to feeling so inadequate on tests? im missing even the obvious questions.i tried talking to the kaplan instructor about it, and was told i was lacking critical thinking on test taking skills.i cant get out of this rut of feeling so dumb and nervous! i will be taking boards in approx. 3 wks. and im scared all my hard work will mean nothing if i can't get my license
they really have broken down my self-confidence.
