HI everyone. So I've been on this site so much looking for tips and helpful hints that would help me pass my NCLEX. It been a tough journey but I finally did it.. (I think, haha) Well according to the PVT trick-- I got the good pop up yesterday.
PVT TRICK DOES WORK RIGHT???
I took the NCLEX the 1st time in June and failed with 265 questions. I was beyond devastated.... and all my friends passed it right away and I was really doubting my abilities as a nurse. When I went to take it the 1st time, I was BEYONDDDD nervous.. my nerves definitely got the best of me. I took Kaplan and liked it.. definitely did a lot of questions but just skimmed over the rationales.
I know, it was a while since I took it the 1st time, but I kept moving it back because I didn't want to fail again. I was so scared. This time I took Kaplan again online and did hurst online. I LOVED HURST. I knew my material, but I was weak in some areas and HURST fills in the blanks. They put the info in such an easy way to understand and you remember it!!! I can't say enough good things about it.
I was still nervous sitting down to take it, but I felt more confident. I honestly thought it was gonna shut off soon... and it went all the way to 265 again. Tried the trick.. and it WORKED!!!!!!!!!!!!!
TIPS-- RELAX, RELAX, RELAX.
Nerves REALLY do get in the way of concentrating and answering the questions. RELAX, be CONFIDENT and know you can do this.
If the test keeps going and going.... ITS OKAY!!!!!
This means you are still in this and you only need to focus and get a few more right. I know its so stressful and frustrating but just know you are so close and don't give up!!!!
for content review 100%.
for questions/HURST had some good ones too.
KAPLAN strategy book
is good at breaking down the question and what they are REALLY asking you
This probably made the biggest difference for me.. READ THE RATIONALES (the ones you got right too!!!) and know WHY you got that one wrong. If you don't understand.. look it up right then. I had a notebook and wrote down ALL the rationales and went over it every day.
Review your content and have a good understanding of it.
INFECTION CONTROL PRECAUTIONS.
Practice Practice PRIORITY
questions and what you would do FIRST
. How are you gonna keep your patient safe?
PRAY and HAVE FAITH!!!!!!
I literally took like 7 breaks while testing and prayed SOOO much. When I felt frustrated and scared... I said a prayer and tried to regroup and relax.
YOU CAN DO THIS!!!!!!!
BELIEVE IN YOURSELF.
Sorry, posted same thing twice.
