I just took the NCLEX - PN, my thoughts. - page 58

I feel like burning most the LVN review books I bought as they did me no good what-so-ever on the NCLEX. The questions I got came out of left field. Stuff that wasn't taught in school like post... Read More

    I took my NCLEXPN in March 2009 the first time and I failed it. The exam gave me all 205 questions. I felt so bad and embarassed. I am scheduled to take it again on June 19 2009. I am stressing over the exam. It means so much to me to pass this test. So many doors would open up for me and most of all I would be able to afford a descent salary to provide for my family. I have been studying for this exam for a month now. I bought the saunders flash cards (3000) questions of which i have completed all and i bought the saunders 4th edition book of which I completed all the questions at the end of the chapter and the exam at the end of the book which was over 1000 questions I also purchased a Hurst book with 800 questions which I completed. Each book contains a CD which has questions of up to 4000 total I completed one CD and i am working on the second one plus reviewing the saunders book again. I am tired of studying. My whole family is rooting for me . My nerves are driving me crazy. i am terrified of this test. God help me! Even my 2 year old daughter and 5 year old son pray for me at night. I am so nervous.

    I took nclexpn in Feb2008; and I passed. I believe what really helped me was being CALM. I made my appointment at 11:30am; on a Friday. That way I was able to get up and eat my breakfast and have my coffee; and I did study alittle before I left for the test center; which was about 40mins from my home. I studied alittle tidbits; like normal blood levels for sodium; mag; potassium etc. I only had 85 questions. I may have a 1-2 math questions; but I had alot of: all that apply questions. But I think what really saved me; really; was NOT letting this test get to me. You can only do one question at a time......so ...you read the question at least twice; then eliminate the answers; YOU HAVE TO BE "IN THE QUESTION"...be the NURSE that you are. I had questions like; 'WHICH PERSON WOULD YOU TREAT FIRST'....you have to eliminate....and think like a nurse....YOU CAN DO IT !!!!
    LIKE I SAID....READ THE QUESTION...TWICE....THEN ELIMINATE THE ANSWERS....YOU CAN PICK THE RIGHT ANSWER....BY STAYING CALM....YOU CAN DO IT.....

    I dont like to take tests in the morning...so that is why I took mine at 11:30....so do whats good for you!!!
    It makes a difference. Also....I was not a brain in school.....I got alot of 85-94 on my exams....but my point is....ITS HARD TO REALLY FOCUS IF YOU ARE FREAKING OUT/OR STRESSING..SO WHEN YOU SIT DOWN TO TAKE THE TEST; TAKE A DEEP BREATH...TELL YOURSELF YOU CAN DO IT...AND ITS ONE QUESTION AT A TIME...so tell yourself...its just a test...that you wont let it get to you....THATS WHAT I DID....AND I KNOW IT IS WHAT TRULY SAVED ME.
    GOODLUCK....YOU CAN DO IT!!!!:spin:

    ok so i took my exam today @ 3:45pm and i was trying to remain calm. i prayed before the test and i also tried to answer the questions the best i could, using process of elimination. well by the time i got to 80 questions the computer stopped and told me to take a break. i went to the bathroom and came back. when i sat down and strated again it gave me about 6 more questions and then the screen just went blank. i did the little survey and then my whole body just went numb. sooooooo! what do i do know? is it a good sign? or a bad sign? i am so worries now, even more worried than before i went to take the test. plus i had 1 math question. i am flipping out! is it bad to stop @ 86 questions?

    You can have a number from 85 to 205 and can pass or fail. You just can not predict with this exam. Hang in there and try to relax. Good luck

    I really cant take this i am so worried. I am hoping and praying that I passed. One minute i feel good about passing and then the next minute i feel bad and think i failed. I think i will be so scared to check and probably wont check online for my results I might just wait until i get it in the mail. I really want to be a nurse I cant see myself doing anything else and I know I will be great at it. Please everyone pray for me!

    So I actually sat here and read from page one to the end, and I feel like if your test stopped at 85 questions, you're pretty much golden. For people like me whose test went the whole way to 205 :uhoh21: it seems like its a 50/50 shot at passing. I feel so nervous and anxious. I'm dying to know my results. I tested this morning and by the time I was on question 180, I actually had tears running down my face becasue I felt like it was over and I had def failed. It makes me feel better to read all these comments and know that everyone else went through this too but it sucks to be in the small percentage that got more than 85 questions. I just hope I passed because I felt like a lot of the questions were terminology and/or meds I had never heard of. Pray for me bc Im feeling pretty hopeless....
