AFTER FAILING THE NCLEX ONCE I HAVE NOW PASSED!!! LET ME TELL YOU HOW I DID IT...
Two websites were absolutely wonderful for me: rnquiz.com and a website from the NCSBN, http://www.learningext.com/products/rnreview/review.asp
The first one was more of a quick but very good review of everything imaginable and quizzes at the end of every second and then four 75questioned timed tests. The second one is very very in depth with extensive quizzes. I would overall recommend the second one a bit more than the first just because of how in depth it is. If you just read all of that information and take all the quizzes it's a done deal, you'll pass! The other huge thing is this book: Prioritization, Delegation, Assignment by Linda A. LaCharity, Candice K. Kumagai, and Barbara Bartz. That book is a lifesaver and an aboslute must to get. I failed the nclex the first time I took it because I had no idea how much of the test was goign to be on prioritization and delegation. I would say 75-80% of the test is questions that were similar to the ones in this book. It was truly my lifesaver! I would reccomend doing as many questions as possible. When they say do 1000-2000 questions that is for real. I didn't barely do any the first time and I failed it, and this time I did aprox. 1500 and I passed! when prioritizing who is the most important patient to be seen remember this: 1.ABC 2. Change in LOC 3. Change in VS 4. Unstable metabolic disorders (hypo/hyper glycemia, electrolyte shift) 5. Pain 6. Any treatments you need to perform 7. Family requesting you to come/Discharge teaching
That is a must know and what helped me significantly! No worries you can do this if you just believe believe believe. Unwavering faith, let no thoughts of limitations enter your mind. You are an RN! If you need anything more just please let me know, I'd be more than happy to help you.
