January 2018 Nclex

  1. Hi everyone! Any January 2018 test takers? I took mine yesterday from 2pm-7pm. I'm pretty sure I bombed. I did not feel confident, had a headache halfway through, and walked out of there feeling defeated. It was the longest 5 hours of my life and I didn't mentally prepare for it enough. I got home, did the PVT 2 hours afer, got the good pop-up. Tried again this morning, still the good pop-up. But i fear that I wouldn't pass the BON's quality check. The waiting game is making me anxious, so I'm hoping to just let it all out and keep myself distracted.

    Cheers to everyone who passed! And for test takers, I couldn't emphasize it enough: go in there for a 260-item exam (I took this little tidbit for granted and ended up with a headache). Good luck!

    UPDATE: I took the test January 2, my name posted on the board on January 4 morning. (I'm still in a state of shock but very, very grateful!). Just a tip for California test takers. I guess PVT is pretty accurate still.

    I went with Mark Klimek's audio plus UWorld. I have the LaCharity book which I barely got to touch (a shame since I had plenty of prioritization questions). For UWorld, I would advise familiarizing yourself with the diseases that are on there (s/s plus interventions). The isolations were also a big thing on mine.

    gladysfdrdeguzman Good luck on your test! You got this!!!

    Congratulations!!! And thank you. I don't have much time to study because I have a full time job and family I need to take care of. I try to make time reading though. And all I have is my book which is the Saunder's Comprehensive Review 7th edition.

    Hi I just wanted to ask, what do you mean when you said that you saw your name posted on the board? Is there a website wherein we could check if we passed? Or were you just referring to the Pearson Vue pop up? Hope you'll clarify please. Thanks

    Hi, if you go to https://www.breeze.ca.gov and click on license search, you can input your name and check if it's there. Also, if you log in to your Breeze account, your application status should no longer be pending. Instead, you will see your license number on the top left corner

    Hi
    I take it on January 9th at 0800. I did the Hurst review (q review questions scores 90/125, 92/125, 95/125, and 97/125) and have gone through all the UWorld questions twice. I have a 99% pass rate with ATI and a very high pass rate with UWorld. I'm nervous and really don't know what else I could be studying. Any ideas?
