Nclex RN in October!

  1. Hi guys!

    I graduated from the University of Puerto Rico in 2011 with a BSN, Yep! a whole year and next month I will finally take the NCLEX, it's been a rough journey applying for liscensure in Tx. It was Rough because I am considered an international applicant. Well, that took me a year and in August I got my ATT I was happy and so excited when that email arrived, but shortly after I was terrified that the ATT mean NCLEX! Well to be honest I've studied here and there but it wasn't a full blown study session(so to me it doesn't count like studying),a few questions here, and there & Read some chapters. Now it's been a year since I've been in a health care environment, I feel like I've forgotten all that I learned in nursin school. So naturally I'm panicking. When I read the practice questions, I panic and answer them wrong, when I read the rationale I'm like "DUH! I knew that, why didn't you read more carefully!?"
    Anyways, here I am exactly one month and a day until I take this behemoth of a test and I need advice, words of encouragement, anything that will alleviate and help towards passing the test.

    study material:
    NCLEX Exam and QB by Linda Stanford (app)
    NCSBN flash cards
    NCLEX REVIEW APP(can't find who made it...maybe not so reliable)
    Mosby's RNtertainment: An NCLEX® Review Board Game
    Prentice Hall's Reviews & Rationales: Comprehensive NCLEX-RN Review

    Thanks guys!
