hi... i've been given the ok to sit my NCLEX exam recently9went thru vermont state board) and had a few questions. i'm looking at sitting it in Sydney late March. i am doing it by myself, as couldn't commit to OGP- as i'm travelling sth america for 4-6 months in april and they needed me to be in Australia whilst everything is organised! also... a little scared of signing the contract knowing the exit fee is so great. haven't completely ruled them out though. anyhoo, my questions are:
1) has anyone else done the exam in sydney?
2) what study materials did you end up buying? (there seems to be so many options- Kaplan/Saunders etc) would you want to sell your old ones to me???
3) i was looking at studing for a solid 10 weeks... is this a bit ambitious of me? do i need more time to prepare?
4)do US nurses get paid penalty rates for nites/weekends/pub hols? if so... what % on the base rate?
i'd be interested to hear any info, as have read thru some posts and know a few aussie people, username 'augigi' etc, are/have been in the same boat.
thanks in advance!
