I don't think anyone ever feels ready for the dreaded NCLEX. It's entirely upto you if you want to reschedule, however, if you are still gonna feel the same in a few weeks - you should just go ahead and take it, it sounds like you are getting decent scores.
I'm not gonna lie, when you get the testing center and sit down you probably are gonna feel like you're gonna puke. Take a few minutes to compose yourself before you begin and even before questions if you need to.
Be aware that when you have the ear plugs in you can really hear your heart beat! This may add to your anxiety.
Thanks for the tip! Are the earplugs mandatory or do they just offer them to everyone? What happens for audio sounds on the exam??
I feel like my college did a great job preparing me but every time I start doing questions I do well for a few then start worrying about what the test will be like and how many questions I will have. (Anxiety sucks!)
I'm trying to relax, spend time with family, praying and enjoying a glass of wine with dinner. Smiling, positive self talk, and no more than 30 min blocks of reading material, and no more than 4 times a day, (so basically no more than 2 hours total).
I'm just getting more nervous that I haven't prepared enough. I hope I can come back and post that I passed on this first attempt! I don't care if I get all 265 questions as long as I PASS. Lol.
I feel like I am losing my mind, the nerves ate overwhelming!
