    We can do this!!! Let's arm ourselves with knowledge and show this test who's boss!!! I am taking the NCLEX-RN in January.

    I was starting to get anxious, but realized that will not help me. All I can do is study study study. I know my weak point is pharmacology, so I am busy making notes about each classification. I need to get my sleep, exercise, and eat well. I will look up things I don't understand, and learn it.

    I plan on evaluating my knowledge a few days before the exam, if I feel like I am not ready, I will reschedule my test right away.

    Good luck to all of us taking the NCLEX. We can do this!!!

    Massou, I did the 5wks learningtext course and I really liked it. I have not scheduled my test either. I thought I was going to be able to take it in December but I was unable to get a date. I am out of state visiting family and will be here until the beginning of the year. I am trying to schedule to take it here because I feel I am ready and want to get it over. I am doing the question trainers from Kaplan and some questions from Saunders while I wait on a date. So as it seems I will be a January test taker.

    Cash, you are welcome to the January family. We will beat this exam. We will claim VICTORY. Let us continue to study and pray, pray, pray.

    ok it is official I will test in January. Lord I know that you said that 8 is the # of new beginnings and I am asking that you look over all of us who will be going into the new year with NCLEX on our hearts and minds. I ask that you be with us as we study and give us the understanding that we need to take the test. I ask that when we walk into that room that you give us a spirit of peace and understanding. Lord you know all our desires and I ask that you be with us as we choose the correct answers during the NCLEX. I will be praying for all Jan. test takers and the Dec. family that is waiting on their results.

    Cash - AMEN!! AMEN!!! AMEN!!! It feels so good to have a place to come and be able to vent if we need to, pray, or ask for advice or even to verify a procedure, med, etc.

    My time is getting sooo close and I haven't been feeling anxious as of yet. I have been dreaming about all types of things pertaining to nursing. When I wake up I start laughing to myself and realize how powerful this NCLEX has a hold on so many of our lives. Sometimes I can't go to sleep if I'm trying to recall something and can't think of it, so I get up and get my review book to confirm it. I've been doing pretty much just the Saunders Review book 3rd edition and the CD. I made a study plan to go through as many content areas as I can on the CD and count how many I actually get wrong to see what my score would be in the study section instead of taking the Exam. I've been doing pretty well, which makes me feel even more ready to knock this NCLEX out the box.

    Good Luck and many blessings to those preparing to test soon!!

    I take the test in less than a month. I try to study but when I try to recal the lectures all I remember is my teacher sounding like the techer on Charlie Brown (wah wa waha wa wah) and when I go through the reveiw books it feels like everything I have learned has drained with the mucous of my cold. I know that I didnt store the information in my short term memory because I got wonderful grades on my finals, and I graduated with a 3.4 GPA. Im sitting on a 1:1 and Im becomming more and more anxious as the time passes (my pt is out like a light). Thanks for letting me vent.

    I registered for January 30th. I was surprised that there were hardly any days available in January in Dallas. Anyway, good luck you all.

    There is power in prayer and it certainly won't hurt any of us! I'll take all the help I can get! Thanks for the prayers! Let's keep the light going. I just graduated Dec 19th and I sit for boards Jan 11. I'm flipping out a little thinking I might be going to soon. I'm going to reschedule if I feel like I'm not ready. So far I love Saunders and actually used it to study for exams at school by each system in Adult 2. I am also taking a 2 hour review class on Jan 9th. I suppose I'll decide whether to chicken out then. I just don't want to wait too long. I already feel sedentary inertia creeping into my brain! :studyowl:
    Good Luck to all of us!!!!
