Canadian Nurse... wrote the NCLEX - page 2

I just wrote the NCLEX yesterday. Obviously I'm freaked out right now. I've taken the process slowly, I graduated 2.5 years ago and since then took the Kaplan course twice, applied for Visa's etc,... Read More

    best of luck you. i know you will ace it! i can relate to how UK learning is . been a student in kingston university and tests wer like essays. more on bookish type really. needs memorization not basically comprehension type of test.

    i know you will do well:P UK hospital training is really good especially when u trained in one of the teaching NHS hospitals out there. one thing is difficult with UK nurses is that we tend tobecome stucked in speciality nursing (neuro, nephro, etc)not the general nursing really.

    Just read that the foreign educated pass rate is 45% thats a nightmare. I sit Nclex on Thursday and am now truly scared. Anyone got any tips for a British educated nurse, meds are my low point . I have followed advice on this website and have studied pretty hard too.

    I actually am trained after the British system in my country. I failed X 2 and tried for a third time 12/28/06 and awaiting my results. i am not sure why it is that way but just stay positive and do not give up hope regardless. Do not use my info. to put fear in you. I personally am not a good test taker regardless of how much i studied. just stay positive.

    Well I sat it today, 2hrs 10 mins and 75 questions. I echo what I have heard on this site, questions are very vague and the studying I did I am not sure if it helped. There were not that many questions that I did and the answer jumped out at me. I did the process of elimination as recommended by Kaplan.
    All the best ISM ,I am waiting with you!

    Huge congrats to you !! I am at the beginninning of my journey to US.
    i have just started looking into Nclex and it can now be taken in London. so i'll be doing that.
    i'm really pleased for you, as a UK nurse i really know how daunting it is. we want to get to florida, have been looking into Tampa...or Orlando. any recommendations out there??

    was the Nclex very american or would british nurses understand it too??

    kind regards
    and well done again

    hello ISM,
    really sorry to hear that the test got away again. please don 't judge your self worth on a test. i'm really sure you deserved to pass. i have a website that i've been looking at that may be of some help, i'm not sure how much as i haven't sat the test yet, but you could have a look at it if you want.
