Got those coveted R.N. initials behind my name now!!

  1. I've finally done it!!!! Took NCLEX Thursday and what a doozy that was! Got the good pop up about an hour later and then checked quick results last night with the wonderful word PASS on the screen.

    I will say, the pop up trick does not work 5 minutes after finishing your exam. Nor does it work 8 minutes after. Not at 12 minutes. Not even 25 minutes later. It took about an hour. ;-) Quick results took about 48 hours to show up.

    Got a lot of great tips from folks here and wanted to say thanks for all the help and suggestions. I used Saunders for the sheer volume of questions you can answer endlessly. Bought Lacharity's Delegation book and really liked it - the questions can be challenging. Not many but they make you think. Used Kaplan's 2011-2012 NCLEX book and thought it was really good. I also took the Hurst on-line review and really liked how they put the core content together.

    What an awesome feeling!!! Good luck to those working on NCLEX. It's a lot of work but you can do it!

    Doesn't it feel great to be able to say that you are now an RN?

    Yes it does!!! Checked my states BON and my license was issued 2/14/12. I graduated LVN school in 2003 and have been working on my RN since 2005. Just so glad to be done!
