A few days before the test i heard the negative voices in my head telling me negatitive things (you are going to fail, this isnt for you, you studied wrong, you arent going to pass). I Def heard these voices. I thought to myself though i ve been through hell in back in nursing school and have taken many challenging test so SCREW my negative thoughts. Stay positive Peppermint control your thoughts. I also find watching motivational videos on youtube is very helpful.
here is the video i watched when i left my house right before the nclex:
INSPIRATIONAL - HOW GREAT I AM - YouTube
after watching that video i was so pumped, like i was ready to fight the nclex, and went there confident.
Over power the negative voice you hear you control them.
I also found at times if I answered over 100-150 questions a day while reading rationales my scores would start to drop. So dont over do your studying.
Watch some inspirational videos. On your way up to take your Nclex-rn listen to a song that motivates you and get pumped like you are ready to BATTLE YOUR SOUL OUT. I was really so pumped for the test i was shedding tears of JOY on my way there..
