Student Nurse - Took NCLEX yesterday

  1. Just wanted to say hello to everyone. I am a new member, read several threads but never sent one. I am a RN student nurse in AZ . Took LPN NCLEX yesterday and guys I am a bundle of nerves waiting for the results. Any advise on how to relax and relieve NCLEX jitters. Thanks.

    I am sure you did fine on your boards. Does AZ subscribe to the quick results program?

    Good Luck

    Yes AZ does, but silly me took the test on a Friday when Monday is a holiday. Therefore i have to sweat this thing out for not 2 but 5 days. Thanks for the encouragement.

    Hi I am UK RN and I took my NCLEX today, really found it hard. i have been qualified for over ten years but it is amazing how much you forget. i am sure you did well, as for me well I can always re-sit. It was all over after 100 questions and no calculations so have bad feeling.
    Good luck with yours

    Just kidding.

    Take a break from it all to get your mind off of it. You did your best. Now, focus on something else for a little while until you get the results.

    Wishing you the best.

    Hi Kay

    Have a few friends appearing later this month and may consider applying soon.

    Would you be kind to recommend study materials for NCLEX??? there is too much material out there and its confusing...I am told the Practise Exams are very helpful??

    What state did you apply for your license and how long did it take to get the ATT? I am told you can get the results within a couple of days after appearing.

    Good Luck

    Hi Lena,

    I would recommend going on web site learningext.com where for a fee you can get practice tests and study material. I also bought a book called 'NCLEX made ridiciously simple' off Amazon cost around 13, which is all the bullet points you need. It is not in depth but it covers everything you should know it is like an idiots guide and I loved it!!!! You can pick up books with thousands of practice tests which is worth getting all questions are 100 per time so you can do % yourself then it gives ans with rational which is helpful. I found the hardest obsticle was learning how to nurse the American way, or should I say think it is very different, but once you get your head round it it is not so different. I hope you dont think I am waffling.
    I wish I had found this site prior to starting my studying it would have been so helpful.

    Lena,
    I am signed to OGP and they did all that work for me. The state they use is Atlanta. I have no idea how long it is before London testing centre let you know I was told friday but the literature they gave me at the test centre said 4 weeks.
    But in London you can re sit up to 6 times which is awsome and if I am still doing it by then I shall be an oap!!

    I hope this helps
