I will be attending drexels rn to bsn online starting in Sept. Ive been a med/surg nurse for almost 5 years and while Im excited about going to back to school I am slao SCARED TO DEATH Ive never taken any classes online but with working nights and 2 kids I dont have any other options
I plan to take a pharmacology and statistics class at Bucks County Community college, one this summer, most likely Pharm
Jump in and lets get to know each other
This is my story. Had my DD in 99, was breech, she was a C/Section, drs found I only had 1/2 of my uterus. DS due to be born in June 2002, ALL male drs in practice recommended C/Section, I DID NOT WANT A VBAC. The week before my C/S, the woman dr who was going to deliever(it was her day) tried to talk me into VBAC, gave me all the statistics about how low the risk was for a VBAC, I declined and went with C/S. As she was delievering my son, she made teh comment "glad you are having a C/S, your utuerus is so paper thin, you would have likely ruptured" Good think I went with my instincts.
I passed with 75 and got 10 select all that apply, I dont think we will EVER be able to figure NCLEX out
I took mine in PA, took them on a Saturday, results posted on Tuesday. A friend took them Thurs. results were there on Saturday, but I have some friends who have waited up to 10 days.
Orthodics have been a LIFESAVER for me, I find its worse when I stand still. As long as I am moving I am fine, but standing in the same spot
I would recommend seeing a podatrist
I passed and my tem. permit says "Null and Void" if you fail I think it says your temp permit says "expired" and if you fail you get a letter in the mail first.
I think your scores are good.
For me, the determining factor was I could not take the anxiety of the boards any longer, I moved my date up twice, I was supposed to take it today, moved it to June 21 and moved it again to June 17. I knew I had done everything possible to pass and I did.
good luck in your decision
WOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, I cant imagine what you have been going thur, SOOOOOOOOOO excited for you
I graduated May 17, went to Disneyworld May 18-21, had my NCLEX review May 23-25 and starting May 26 I studied everyday up until my test on June 17. I did TONS AND TONS of questions, if I had to guess it would be about 5000. I used numerous different guides and TRUELy felt ready to take my boards. I found out June 20 I had passed, my license had been issured on my son's 4th birthday June 19, got my licnese in the mail yesterday
Passed at 75, I hope you do too
1. How many questions did you take on NCLEX?
2. What study materials did you use? Did you take a test review course
I used A LOT of things: ATI, Saunder's, Kaplan, NCLEX 3000, Mosby's, Mosby's CAT. I took the Sylvia Rayfield course.
3. Did your SON offer any testing (ERI, ATI, HESI)?
We started ATI in the middle of Nursing 3, the Predictor test said I had a 99% chance of passing NCLEX
4. How long did you wait for results of the test, or are you still waiting?
I took the test at 8am on Saturday and got my results from PA BON on Tuesday morning at 7am!!!!, I PASSED
5. What were your thoughts coming out of the test (total disbelief, certainty you had failed, confident you had passed)?
I had mixed feelings, when I got to question 74 I said to myself, "if this shuts off at 75, I passed" BUT when it shut off at 75 I cried, the next few days I went back and forth between thinking I had passed and at time thinking I failed.
6. Was this your first attempt at NCLEX?
This was my 1st AND LAST, it was a strange test, but in my mind doable
Go in with confidence. We graduated nursing school, we have the knowledge to pass the boards. I truely believe that having the confidence helped me, along with the tons of questions I had done
IN my Saunders 3rd edition, its under chapter 16, Providing a Safe Environment, Hope this helps
I did about 5000 questions in 3 weeks from various sources. ATI, Saudners, Mosby CAT, Sylvia Rayfield book ( my review class), NCLEX 3000. I did pass with 75 questions. I can also say that I knew I was as ready as I was going to be
Good luck to you
I knew you passed
