    Thank you! So we are alot alike if I can do it I'm sure you can. I was weak in those same areas so I would go to the Qbank and narrow down my questions to only basic care and comfort whatever else I felt I needed more review in and took questions only in those areas... I think if you can think about the disorder or surgery or whatever and say to yourself what can I do for this client to help them or how would I go about treating them if this happens it'll help that's what I did alot just thought to myself no books no videos and picked a topic such as Addison's disease and thought to myself how does this client present? What can I do for them? What can I teach them? That's what helped also those mnemonics and acronyms helped soooo much especially for the infection control and mother baby. Let me know if you have any other questions =)

    They are looking good to me for the most part honestly I think maybe just stay calm while taking them I never looked at the time or number when taking the practice and maybe if you have to what I did was speak the questions out loud like I was conducting a class or something and went through each answer choice so I can hear it out loud it helped alot

    Thanks so very much for your post Dubs2012!!! I test on 01/28/13 and I'm starting to panic. I too pray a lot and believe its the only way I made it through nursing school (even had an appendectomy in the middle of my third semester last February). I had so many things going on, it was unreal! But passing and graduating on 12-12-12 gave me the confidence that I needed. I am staying positive about the NCLEX. I have no job lined up so that's allowed me more study time and stress that I didn't have to go through. Congrats and good luck in your career as a registered nurse!!! God bless!

    u sound like as if i knew u from somewhere.. prolly school.. i am just kidding.. but u strong.. i havent even taking the nclex yet but i am not scared cuz i know who i served, the ALMIGHTY who created the nclex, the computer and the world. ur exam date is pretty close to mine.. but I see God's hand was with me thru our nursing school.. i was doing my two masters while in nursing school, everytime i am about to fail a class, God will bring in a new instrutor to teach that class and favor me and right after the class, i meant the semester the class was taught, the instructor will leave. is like God see m y grade even before i start the semester..( i dont know if it is making sense).. but just Trust God, I like wat RN did, (pray).. is not ez, i cant even tell how i got thru nursing school, all i can say IS GOD.. my grades in nursing school were avg.. God favored me... i am just not nervous or afraid becuz God said, even though i walk thru the valley of death (failure, NCLEX) i would not be afraid, becus he is right beside me.. I havent taken my NCLEX yet, BUT my date and urs is close by.. and i am believing in God, that he will make a way..
    secondly, know ur delegations and prioritizations, skin dxs and who will u c first,, ( i have a feeling dats is what is going ot be on nclex)..
    thirdly, i am studying the hurst review and lived in TX, austin.. so if u close by, u can holla, if wanna sturdy..
