    Question for you and prettyinpink
    So I take mine Wednesday. I have done ALL the questions on Kaplan!
    what do you recommend, I was going to go back and watch some of the video lectures, but just not sure what to watch. thought about watching pharm but there is so much. I have a few hours Saturday and Monday and that is it! I trust your judgement..tell me what to watch! Thanks Guys.
    NICE CALIFORNIA! I live in Maryland and guess what..it is cold!
    After finishing the questions:

    -I went and watched the pharmacology lectures again
    -I review my Readiness Test rationales
    -Made sure I knew my lab values
    -Reviewed any concepts that I struggled with consistently
    -I relaxed last night and this morning before my test

    THAT is hilarious!!!! I've been telling my boyfriend that once I get this test over with we'll do things we've been talking about like go to the zoo (which we've been talking about for months! haha) and we're actually going to Disneyland on Monday! (V-day) Hilarious. He was too sweet he knew I was a nervous wreck about my NCLEX and showed up on my door step at 8:30pm the night before with a bouquet of flowers. Sweetest thing ever!!!

    As for a job, I work as a tech at the biggest trauma center in San Diego... I work in the trauma unit and LOVE it! The next new grad residency program starts in March so I am hoping to stay right where I am and work with the people that have become my other family

    What about you? What is the job you are set up with if you pass?

    And as for studying - Once I finished all the questions I just started doing q-bank questions again and surprisingly there were a lot I didn't remember so it helped.
    Awesome job! I would love that! I live in a small town so the nearest big trauma center is Baltimore which is two hours away. I have a 7 year old and a 10 year old and I am too old to drive that far everyday! I have a job starting on March 7th at our local hospital. I will be on the med-surg floor, which is fine to start. I would like to go to the ED in a year or so. Our ED really won't hire you without experience, so that is my plan. I would LOVE flight nursing, so we will see.
    I work at the hospital now, about two days a week, doing whatever they need me to do. Mostly sitting 1;1's which I actually find to be fun! HA!
    Well, I am going to go watch Infection Control and Pharm. today! Enjoy!

    You are so sweet sasagrrrl! You are so welcome. Thank you for you kind words!

    I think the anticipation is the worst part of the NCLEX. Once you get through this week, your quality of life will improve.

    YOU CAN DO IT!

Well i really hope that i can take the exam this october no matter what..i used saunders compre bit to tell you the truth its no big help when im answering kaplan's questions..but i guess knowing the normal values will be important..I didnt use saunder's cd at all because i find the questions somewhat obvious,it didnt really challenge me..so are you doing kaplan's questions too?

Where did you graduated and what year?i just actually started studying last september after i passed the ielts exam and now im really hoping to take the nclex this october bec my EDD is on november so once i deliver my baby i can give her all my attention since i dont want to split my attention between studying for the exam and taking care of her.. Im happy to know that youre Pinoy!!
