I Passed NCLEX-PN.. YEAH!!!!

  1. I don't know if you all remember, but I failed the NCLEX-RN exam twice, and my manager told me to take the NCLEX-PN exam, so at least I can start working and she would keep me on. Well, I decided to do it. I had three weeks to study, so I bought the "Saunder's Strategies" book and read it 3 times. I did the 205 practice questions in the back, as well as the 500 question study, and the tests, because I only had 3 weeks.

    Well, I didn't tell ANYONE I was taking it. I took it on the 3rd. I just called my BON licensing line, and they had a license # for me, with exp. date. I still haven't checked with Peasonvue yet, but I'm guessing that means that I PASSED....

    Now, I can focus on Suzanne's plan for my NCLEX-RN. I'm almost done with the first tip. I definately know that "SAUNDER's" is the BOOK for me. I did Kaplan twice, and failed twice. I'm definately sticking with Saunder's ONLY...

    Thank you to everyone on this forum for your strong words of encouragement. You all kept me sane in a time of worry, anxiety, and doubt.....
    If some of you are waiting to take the NCLEX or waiting for results, just BE POSITIVE and tell yourself daily that "YOU CAN DO IT". Believe in yourself and it will go a long way...

    please tell me if ther is a difference between the 2 exams interms of my wanting to do PN enroute to R/N after 3 failed attempts. Is the PN just as difficult?

    ISM,

    With regards to difficulty, I think they are about the same. There were things on the PN exam I had never seen before. However, all I did was know my strategies inside and out. I also applied the ABC's with about everything. I had a lot of med calculations and select all that apply, which I never had when taking the NCLEX-RN.

    It all depends, I guess. I would just continue to do tons of questions, and know your strategies. I would recommend Saunder's if you don't already know about it. It's the best purchase I've ever made.

    you see, i tried to use the ABC,s etc but could not identify them because of how close the options were. also about knowing which equipment was not functioning properly. some i knew nothing about. also who would be discharged to make room for incoming patients etc. most of those persons were unstable with potential for complications.it was difficult to narrow them down. i honestly did not get stuff i studied so hard for especially focusing on my weaknesses. any way thank you and good luck with round 2.
