MY studying and Nclex experience!

  1. 4
    Just wanted to share with you guys my experience up to today! I graduated in December took Hurst live review Jan 5-8 and received my ATT March 1st and scheduled my test today...March 25th. I was hesitant to schedule my test today because that meant I only had 3 weeks to study. But I spoke to fellow nurses and they told me just take it ASAP...I also was afraid about how they said the test changes in April.

    So from March 1st- up to yesterday I studied everyday....I used Hurst...Kaplan Qbank and Qtrainers scores were as follows

    Q1 60
    Q2 60
    Q3 56
    Q4 47
    Q5 59
    Q6 63
    Q7 62
    I studied Hurst over and over only was able to do 3 out of 6 exams in Hurst...

    I also had PDA was unable to finish only did 3 chapters.

    I took Nclex today and it stopped at 225. I had over 20 SATA questions...like 5 or 6 EKG strips, around 10 drag and drop questions, 5 exhibit questions, no hot spots, no audio, and 2 identify pics. I honestly felt only half of what I studied for was on this test!!! The other half was general questions. I had more than 10 meds and only knew 1 of them. My brother told me it doesn't matter how much u study for this...you're never gonna feel prepared!! And he was right!! I prayed throughout the whole test and only took 1 break to get a drink of water.

    I can say everyday I prayed and fasted and would already thank God and claimed that I passed. I would say everyday Phillipians 4:13 "I CAN DO ALL THINGS THROUGH CHRIST WHO STRENTHENS ME." Like previous test takers said I took Jesus inside with me during this test!! And he didnt fail me!!! HE IS MY STRENTGH!! I checked at 2:30pm and got the GOOD POP UP!!!! THANK YOU JESUS!!! I give him the ALL the glory!!!!

    AMEN! I fasted and prayed as all. I wrote on my board I CAN DO ALL THINGS THROUGH CHRIST WHO STRENGTHENS ME after the tutorial. I passed with 265 questions. God is AMAZING and I give Him ALL the praise, honor and glory because He is the reason I passed the dreaded NCLEX RN! He's able. Congrats RN :-)
