I graduated in May 2012 with my BSN! I needed to get my two children on track with homeschool before I focused on NCLEX preparations. 6 months later and the time has come! I will formally begin preparing for NCLEX as of 1-1-13. ... Read More
- 1Jan 5, '13 by itsdebraanneI'm with you!! I graduated May 2012. took the test 5 months later and failed. I took a rest in Octover, did review classes in November, then December was kind of a struggle to get back to my study routine. January was gonna be my month study plan. but it's Jan 5 and I still haven't gotten the motivation to really focus. I got scared and procrastinated by watching movies or seeing friends to feel some sort of happiness. But I will join you in studying. Good to know I'm not alone. (:
- 0Jan 6, '13 by yisy4uI'm about to start my last semester of nursing school, but already want to start preparing for the NCLEX. I need to pass it in my 1st attempt. I plan on reading the Saunders 5th edition. I took the test the CD provides (I scored 60%) & it organized & divided the material I should review. I plan on starting this monday. I also printed out the study guide that it's around this site. Do you guys think I'm ahead of myself? I just want to be prepared & I'm weak on content. I plan on taking the NCLEX as soon as I graduate & get the paperwork in order.
Btw, Good luck to those taking the test this month. I'm really excited for you guys.
- 1Hi all,
Good to see people motivating each other. Just wanted to share my experience of passing NCLEX-RN with the least amount preparation anyone could have had. I am currently doing my MSN in India and will be moving soon with my husband to Texas. I passed NCLEX-Rn on Dec 3rd.. and was one of the most beautiful days in my life. All my thanks goes to the 4 weeks review course provided by NCSBN. I dont see many of them sharing or exploring this. So thought its worth sharing. I swear, I never had time to do more than 20 practice question a day amidst all my Master's thesis work. I went through the Kaplan, and Saunders.. and found that this wasn't going to help me such short time. And God's grace some one told me about this 4, 6 and 8 weeks online review available from the NCSBN's site. I completed the 4 weeks review. To my surprise when sitting in front of the computer for my test.. (frozen hands and legs of course), what I found was the questions were all kinda familiar to me. My test got over with 75 questions and in 48 hours time and I got my results.. yayyy.... Awaiting to come to my husband to start my career... This is worth exploring guys. NCSBN 4 weeks review.
Hope this will be useful for all..
- 0Quote from PatriciaMartinezHi.did you find Saunders helpful?
Saunders is helpful. Just to review the subjects... But none of the questions I faced in the test were anywhere close to the practice questions I tried with Saunders. But to enhance your nursing knowledge Saunder's is perfect.
- 0Jan 7, '13 by Cb1985Hi everyone, good luck to you all . Keep in mind that no matter how much you study you will never feel prepared for an exam like the nclex . I tested a year after graduating and passed first time with 75questions . I took about a month and half to prepare I read Saunders Comprehensive review , yes the entire book and completed all of Kaplans Qbanks ...did about a total of 2700questions . There's is also a study guide around here I used on days before testing and most importantly praying when I felt like giving up ...thank you God for giving me the strength .. Will keep you guys in my prayers ..Gluck
