I just took the NCLEX - PN, my thoughts. - page 8

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

    u might check to see if u can use you license # if it is available, u may not need a temp license...though i am not sure. i think the temp license is for GPN status working under an RN.....than again, i am not sure.

    in any event......CONGRATS!!!! GLAD TO SEE U MADE IT!!

    In California, you do not get a license number when you pass the nclex- you still have to pay more money, and wait a few more weeks, for your license paperwork to be hand processed and receive a license number. So, because of this long drawn out way of doing things, they sometimes give temp or IP licenses to people who have had to wait a long time.

    congratulations to all of you. I live in californai and am waiting to get my ATT but they have already messed up on our paperwork and now that you say they are moving, it makes sense. i am nervous i will not pass NCLEX so you are all my inspiration. I am studying like crazy and hope to study for another month before taking it. I am so scared. Even though I graduated from LVN school on Nov. 18, 2005 with an A, I now feel like I know nothing taking the practice tests and not knowing the answers and doing poorly! Did you guys feel like that too. I want to take it soon before I forget any more stuff. You are all awsome. Keep me in your thoughts too. I hope I can pass it and do as well as you all have. I am 48 and my daughter is also in RN school so we drive each other crazy with test taking stress!!!!! Take care everyone. Oldernursing student in California (nervous and scared of NCLEX!!!!!!!!!) Help!!!!!

    YEP! I think I can safely say that almost everyone feels that way- I didn't learn anything and will never pass this test. You actually know more than you think at this point... You will do fine. Just hit those books. We are all pulling for you and your daughter! Congratulations on Graduating, and hang in there; Your almost to the finish line!!!! Just a tiny bit more!!!!

    ah, ok...in NY we have to send in the licensure fee ($135) and NCLEX fee ($200) and await the ATT, than get a test date. upon passing the test, your license# is posted at the office of professions site within a few days and the license mailed to you.

    i am still waiting for the ATT, hopefully will be here within 2 more weeks.

    Thanks for the encouragement, it really means alot. Have you already passed the NCLEX? My friend and I just registered for the test today, so now it's just get through as many questions as possible and study till we drop. My daughter just finished her first semester in RN program so she has a while to take the NCLEX. This is nervewracking isn't it. You guys are my mentors!!! Thanks for your support. Take care all of you.

    I just graduated in Dec, 2005. I have the Sylvestri NCLEX review book. From what I've read here Saunders is not a good one, which I also have. I was just wondering if anyone took any online courses that they could recommend.

    The Saunders NCLEX book is written by a nurse named Linda Silvestri. The Saunders book is the same as the Silvestri review book. If you want to take an online course, you might want to look into taking a Kaplan course. They'll refund your money if you don't pass NCLEX.
