NCLEX-RN Thursday

  1. I'm taking the NCLEX-RN (in Texas) on Jan 5. I just graduated in December. I figured I should take the test while everything's still "fresh" in my mind. I'm so nervous, I'm having a hard time sleeping this week. I've been studying Saunders through nursing school (that's what my teacher used a lot). I bought a Kaplan book after graduation, at the advice of my clinical instructor. I've done everything I think I can to prepare. I've always had a tendency to freak out on tests, so I'm trying to hold it together the best I can and keep CALM!

    Congratulations!

    Just a few tips: Don't overwhelm yourself, no reviewing the night before and eat a light breakfast, have your paperwork ready that you need to take with you and make sure you know the way to the testing center beforehand.

    Don't forget to believe in yourself.

    THIS WAITING STUFF IS DRIVING ME CRAZY!!!!!!! I have checked, just in case my score is posted, and it isn't. I hope I don't have to wait til Monday!

    I took my NCLEX Thursday morning too. Ughh. I am so scared. Did you take 75 questions? I wanted more questions because I thought I needed to prove I wasn't as stupid as I was feeling! Did you do ATI testing review? It was good, well, I'll let you know if it was good if I passed. LOL


    ... this is me pacing and waiting, you too?

    Post when you pass, fingers crossed for you!!!

    Yeah, it's driving me crazy too! My fingers are crossed 4 u also. I had somewhere between 90-100 questions. We did a lot of Arnett practice tests my last semester, and it seemed similar to those.....hopefully they helped.
    I guess I'll find out Monday! I'm going shopping tomorrow, to try and take my mind off of it!
    Later!

    What was harder, taking the test or waiting for the results? :roll

    I was a bit jealous when someone posted that they had their test results within 24 hours! :angryfire

    After my test I was wondering if someone could just knock me out for 48 hours while I wait for the results.

    I am sure you did pass. Be calm, patient, positive.....you know, be all the things that I will NOT be when I am waiting for results.

    Scheduled to test on the 20th,
    Rachel

    P.S. Let us know as soon as you finish celebrating.
