I'm not taking Kaplan review
course, but I test in a week as well (16th to be precise). During the weekend, I had all type of discussions with myself trying to talk myself out of testing next week..as I was scared and nervous. But as fate may have it, the nearest center to me, which I already scheduled for..had the whole of this month booked! I told myself there's no way on earth..I'm waiting another whole month of torture..just to study my eyeballs out! As for diagnostic tests and what not, I think it's better you "fail" it now,and see your mistakes by reading the rationales and stuff..and then use them in NCLEX to succeed! I myself having being doing La Charity and my scores ain't the greatest either, but I believe that I'm learning from all my mistakes. As someone on this site puts it: "You have been to Nursing school, you have the knowledge..just apply it. NCLEX is just another exam"
I'm just gonna go in there next week, with great faith and praise in my heart. I will give it my best and let God decide my fate! I have been praying steadily for the past weeks, and I believe God will work great wonders in our lives.
Just believe that God will DO it for you!! Have confidence, girl!
WE ARE GOING TO OWN NCLEX, in His mighty name! Amen!
