Is there any book that is really good to study from. I'm all over the place. I also heard that the test is really harder than before. Fill in the blanks drop downs hot spots ?????? YIKES I NEED HELP!!!

    i think the best advice is remember abc's and approach each question different and oh yea brush up on your isol;ation procedures esp diseases - i found them difficult and the machine knew

    This thread was started more than 5 years ago, and things with the exam have changed considerably, from the type of questions and everything else in between.

    I have moved this thread to the NCLEX Discussion Forum where it is more appropriate. Graduate Nurse forum is actually for those that have not written the NCLEX exam as of yet, and if you have written it and have not passed it, then you are no longer considered a GN in any state.

    The first tip of my program is posted at the top of this forum, if you wish my help, complete it as it is posted and then contact me via the pm system that we have in place here. The private message system can be accessed bt clicking on the My Account tab at the top of this page, or by clicking on my user name and using the pm section, not the e-mail response to me.

    Best of luck as you prepare again.

    Hi Jacel!

    I can very well relate to what you're going through coz I've been there.. I passed CGFNS and with I was confident that I'm gonna make it with NCLEX. I was quite laid back while having my NCLEX review and was concentrating more on my husband, by the way we are newly wed when we decided to take the exam as he is also a nurse..Bottomline: business first before pleasure... I and my hubby are still planning to take the exam maybe after I give birth...DON'T ever Lose Hope..GOD is good.

    Jacel is probably long gone because she posted her original message over 5 years ago. But your words are very encouraging....hopefully others will benefit.

    Hello everyone,

    I see so many posts on people passing the boards their first try but unfortunately, I am one who didn't. I know I am not alone but I wanted to hear from anyone who may have had similar problems with anxiety in taking the NCLEX. I know for me I pushed myself way too soon to take the test after graduating, getting married, honeymooning and taking the test the following week.

    After about question 88 I had a panic attack and my pulse started racing. I never recovered and the computer shut off at 155 questions. I had no idea how I did until today.

    I plan on taking Kaplan's online course as my second prep class and hope it helps better than the first course I took.

    So if anyone has any words of wisdom for me, I would appreciate it.

    Here's to Abraham Lincoln who never gave up and neither will I.
