I don't think he has any videos. I guess it is the students who attend the review class that video it themselves and watch it later on their own to retain what he thought in the class. I am not sure but you can always get a better answer here.
Congratulations! Job well done and thanks for your input.
I advice you to wait until you get your official result so you can see how you performed in all the categories. That will tell you whether it was content or strategy issue. You don't need to panic or get too anxious because it can only demoralize you. I learnt is not good to memorise when studying for the nclex may be that is why you said HURST did not help you at all while so many have testified how helpful HURST was to them in passing the nclex. You need to give yourself a few months rather than rushing it in weeks. All the best to you.
You made the decision to post, LOL no one forced you to! If you don't have the time then why did you start in on the thread you don't have time for in the first place??
I'm not ranting, I think I'm being pretty rational. Can't say that's true for everyone though.
One thing we can agree on is that your time is probably best spent trying to pass the NCLEX. Good luck.
thanks can i delete this
Says you. I see threads here all the time that make me wonder what the point of posting them was. Doesn't make me the arbiter of what should or should not be discussed though, does it? Your not seeing the value in a discussion means that perhaps you should abstain from the discussion. Those who find entertainment, education, perhaps mere curiosity piqued, let them discuss away.
Message boards are just that, people talking. Maybe you can picture this thread as a conversation in a cocktail party. You stand by the circle, listen for a minute or two, decide the topic is not an interest, and wander away. Maybe that would be your best move? Or, reconsider and join in. Either way, the person who wrote this thread has every right to be heard, just as you have a right to disagree.
Viva le difference!
I think that requesting a thread be closed when it has only just begun, because you didn't like comments on another thread of the same topic is really throwing in the towel much too soon, don't you think? Might even be akin to telling someone who has failed the NCLEX once to just give it up already LOL.
Anyone can fail a test once, maybe even twice on the same test. Three failures on the same test though? I think that a remediation is in order before allowing a fourth attempt, like already is the case with some state Boards of Nursing. Beyond that, I have to say no. Like several others have already said, and eloquently said on this thread, at some point one has to realize that a significant amount of time has passed since they graduated school, and a significant amount of knowledge, whatever it was that they gleaned from school, has already been lost. It just no longer becomes realistic for someone to consider nursing a viable career option after multiple failures over an extended period of time. That's not pessimistic it really is just realistic. Others are free to disagree, but the OP did ask for opinions. Mine is that if you have not passed this exam in three attempts, you must do some type of formal remediation program. Can't pass on the fourth attempt? You should consider yourself done. My two cents.
Woooo! congratulations. You wrote in Canada, right? What , materials did you use in studying and which one do you think looks like the nclex questions you got in the exam.
Yes please, try buy it, it is very helpful for CPNRE. But try finish the Saunders and do as many questions as you can with the online code. Tr read the cpnre prep guide 3 times before your exam. Goodluck.
Difficulty is subjective,but i thought the exam was relatively easy. All the topics were in saunders. even if the exact question wasnt. most of my questions had 6 choices, but only pick answers that you believe are correct. for example if you are only sure of 2 choices only pick 2. Trust what you remember and what you learned. If the saunders is used correctly everyone who use it should pass. Ome thing Ive learned from doing a lot of questions is that I didnt know as much as I thought I knew. Its the simple questions that will get you and sometimes require the most thought. So when youre studying always ask why and what. I forgot to mention I also used LaCharity. My teachers taught me the do not delegate what you EAT rule, I used the do not delegate what you EATS rule for UAPs. I added the S for sterile procedures. If youre planning to use saunders and need help unleashing its full potential, let me know
There is no need for this discussion if you have already passed the nclex, because so many will comment in away that you and others will not like. I have read on this forum a similar post and it was shut down because of ugly response. Some will like to belittle others and make them feel less. So my my advice is close this thread.
How difficult are the SATA questions? Are the like basic or topics you have never come across. I hope you pass. Goodluck to you.
Congratulations to you. Please what do you mean when you say " It felt very home health and community teaching based which felt completely out of my element.'' What type of questions did you see before you concluded the above facts?
LOl! That's what you got! You are lucky to get the good pop and hopefully you get your RN status in days. Thanks and goodluck.
Ive heard different things about the various study methods. First, Saunders is a great tool to help pass tests in nursing school and to practice how to approach SATA and other alternative format questions, but useless on the NCLEX, because the information is too easy. Others say to use either Pearson or ATI to prepare for the NCLEX.
