    Its official! I pass! Im a Register Nurse!! Its feels really good. Thank you Heavenly Father, allnurses, all the awesome people I met here.

    My source:
    Kaplan Qt and Qbank: way harder then the actual Nclex but was helpful, it help me think critically.
    Saunders: read the entire book 4 times (ok 5 times, 6 on some chapters) Who knew I could actually read. A big surprise for me too I didn't know reading could be fun.

    Nclex4000: I honestly can't make up my mind if this source helped me.

    NCSBN: i enrolled 3 weeks. In my opinion 3 weeks wasn't enough because I read even their content.

    Random Facts on the sticky notes: I must have read this like3-4 times. Somebody with a good heart put together most of the post.

    PDA: very helpful.

    Prayers: very important even with my busy day I did the rosary almost daily.

    Also I read lots of post saying they had meds that they never heard of so I would go to American Food and Drug Administration website to check is there new drugs?? I also check American Diabetes Association, it helpful (although I didn't have questions on endocrine) they have what you need to know about diabetes A-Z they have topics that i didnt see on the Saunders Review.American Cancer, CDC (what are the hot/new issues). I figured hey I'm gonna work in America let me get myself educated..

    I heard Hurst is a good review. I really wish I had this because I know it would probably help me too. But again limited funds.

    Sorry I know how frustrating it is to have so much source, during my exam I had a mission to figure what source really help me so I can post it here but sorry i fail in that I don't know which one is the most helpful.

    Guys my life is so hard. I didn't even have a quiet place to study. I had very limited funds I couldn't afford daycare and no one to help me not even friends/family.The father of my kids he was always tired from work when he comes home he would play xbox to relax even on his days off. For my stress reliever I go to allnurses.com as much as I can because it relieves my tension. I often wish I had at least enough funds to go get my hair/nails done or go yoga.


    Goodluck to all. Please if I can do it (me who everyone around me thinks/threat me like Im dumb) If I can do it you can do it.

    Congrats! Thanks for sharing your inspiring story. I can't believe that you read through many times of Saunder book. How can you do that? It is amazing.I just read one time, and it is overwhelming to me. Then I started doing questions, when I have question, I go back to the book to read the related content. I should read through again to make sure all contents are solid. But my exam date is 10/30. Wish I have enough time to review it again.
    I am using Saunder 5th, since the CD format has small screen hurt my eye, so I am using Saunder Q & A review online which has big screen making my eye comfortable. It has about 5000 question in there, I am doing content by content.
    How did you study for pharm?
    I am so happy for you.
    Best wish to you and your family.

    bayou Please don't be paranoid like me if you feel you already understand what you read move on to another topic/chapter/book.
    Some people are so smart all it takes is 1 time and they understand and remember what they read. With my pharm I also used Saunders and ncsbn. I invest on post it and write down important meds stick them everywhere in the house, so that while im washing dishes I would read them, in the bathroom so when I doing my thing I can read them.

    futurelpn2012.. Thank you. Those people who mistreated me are no longer part of my life. I mean I tried many times to fix things but it never work. I just pray for them I ask God to protect them. I just can't stand them anymore and look at what I achieve not worrying about them.. I pass my board exam. :redpinkhe I still love them no matter what, they are just not allow to bring me down anymore.
