I'm determined to be a 1st time passer!!! good luck to those who is going to or just took the test! prayers for all of us please?

    after more than a month of waiting to get my att, i'm finally authorized to test, and all of a sudden i'm beginning to panic a little. It took me THREE times for me to pass the hesi in order to graduate and i'm worried that it will take me a ton of times to pass the NCLEX, does anyone have any particular study techniques, or study groups in the Hampton Roads area? I NEED to pass the first time, i can't afford 200 bones for a retake..

    Flames: you're right and have a point, I just wish that they would put that on the job description you know?
    Lunah: i am still waiting for the paperwork, it's been a month and i haven't gotten anyhthing.

    I got a job working privately for a family so that will have to do i guess on the bright side I'll be getting more experience? I'm sorry to you guys for sounding abrupt and upset, i've been out of work for more than a year and for me to not getting any responses is really getting to me. my savings can only last so long before i become a burden. you two have a point though, i'll just wait and HOPE and work at passing th efirst time so i can get on with it

    I graduated this past June from a PN program and waiting to take my boards. I haven't been able to find a job at all. AT ALL. I'm not even gettin ga phone call and I'm getting really frustrated. I applied to those accepting new grads and same thing. In fact, I applied to everything, home care, health aid, receptionist...nothing. I'm really worried that I won't get a job and I can only rely on my savings for so long. is anyone having the same issues in the hampton roads area? i'm getting frustrated and feel beatdown and that my hard work was for nothing. anyone have any advice as to whereelse to look and how to deal?

    hey jmartinez, Fortis college has changed with the DON switch since I started. I'm hoping that it's because of the high turnover rate that our class had it rough. However, I doubt it. the new one is not the most helpful/compassionate/nice/professional. i would have notebooks, binders, whichever you prefer for study utensils. Also, we got our nclex study books really late so you might want to get the blue kaplan book. unfortunately, pretty much ALL my GREAT instructors have left so I can't assure you will have good instructors. I wish i had better information for you . i just graduated yesterday and I'm very glad i left. But it is similar to MCI and lpn is 15 months...lpn to adn is 16 months. hope this helps and good luck with the classes! if you want anymore info let me know~!

    I need to pass my exit hesi exam with a 830. I failed my first time and I've become discouraged. I can't even say I was close to passing and I'm starting to freak out. I have been using a practice disk, blue kaplan book, reviewing what I got wrong and going through those and it doesn't feel like I'm improving. I feel hopelss right now and wondering if anyone can share advice, words of advice or some encouragement? I'm an A/B student and haven't felt this low before. I NEED to pass this test.

    I failed the first time I took the hesi and I agree, the pressure you have with taking it does not help at all. I realize that I read the quesitons wrong sometimes and the distractors get me. I have the nclex elsevier book and the kaplan book. i have been reading the kaplan book and taking the tests on the green book. I have heard not to study the night before, just relax. also, when you get in the room and you're given a scratch piece of paper to write your labs down so when you're stressing out, you won't have to worry about getting the labs wrong. good luck on your next hesi AMiller5 and let us know how you do!I hope this helps a little? i'm hoping to pass the hesi next time around. i need it to graduate

    ps. any other advice would be appreciated!

    I'm graduating from an LPN program in a couple of months and I'm looking into getting into their accelerated program for second degree in nursing. Are you still in school and are your thoughts the same? I'm hoping to schedule a meeting with the DON and get my prereqs out the way.

    The thought of joining the military or national guard has crossed my mind but I'm a little hesitant. It's probably because I need to do more research. Since I have a degree I know that I can go in as an officer, but I want to be able to go to school for my RN. Also, don't you need to be able to pass their physical training tests? I'm not in as much shape as I should be.
