NCLEX on 1/17 - Scared!

  1. Hello all,

    I am testing on Thursday 1/17 and I am really scared. I have done all the questions in the Saunders Comprehensive NCLEX-RN book (read chapters that I scored less than 75% on the end-of-chapter quiz) and done about 1,000 questions from the CD, I've done the entire Saunders Q&A book, LaCharity PDA, and some Kaplan Question Trainers that I found online (my scores on those were QT1 68%, QT2 81.9%, QT3 64%, QT4 67%, QT5 64% QT6 67%, QT7 64%). I got a 76% on the Kaplan CD. I've done probably a total of 5,500 questions.
    I did really well in school - nearly straight A's and I got a 98% chance of passing on my ATI predictor.
    It's probably overkill and I'm being ridiculous, but I'm just nervous about the exam.
    Should I just relax and take it easy for the next few days? Any advice would be great.

    Relax. It's a MINIMUM COMPETENCY EXAM. Your Kaplan scores indicate that you are ready. Just keep plugging away at the qbank and trainers until the day before then, do nothing. Get a good nights sleep and a good breakfast and then just go and own it.

    When you get your results, your anxiety right now will seem silly.

    I passed with 75 questions! I am a RN!

    All the stress does seem silly now, but (as all nurses know) when you've all this time and money in nursing school, one can't help but be a little apprehensive about the NCLEX.

    Ahhh! Yay! Congrats Nevada RN!!!!!!!

    Believe me I know! I am going to be taking NCLEX this summer, about June/July. I am still finishing my last semester now and already getting nervous. I am trying to do 10 NCLEX questions a day until we are done with the semester then bumping to 50-100 questions a day to prepare myself.

    It's exciting and terrifying but your success is encouraging!!!! I hate seeing the people on here who have failed so many times. It makes me dread taking it even more.

    Thanks Kemi and CP2013! I am so glad I'm finally done with the studying and stress!

    CP, good for you on already doing questions. I did about 100-200 questions per day to help prepare for NCLEX. I'm sure you will pass the first time. It's a challenging exam, but not all that bad in the end.
