NCLEX-RN today and got the "Good Pop-Up"

  1. 0
    I took the NCLEX today for the first time, stopped at 87 (1.5 hrs later), and I got the "good pop-up"!! I'm excited, happy, confused, and disoriented bc that test was soooo HARD!! Still, until i see that "PASS" in two days, I'm skeptical about the PVT!

    Confidence, confidence, confidence! I've struggled with low self-esteem for quite a while, so I take a lot of pride in the things I do right…seeing improvements in my Kaplan Trainers and Qbanks (no matter how big or small) really helped me along the way! When I felt like I was gonna lose control in that test I had to look down and breathe…I reminded myself that during the one month of devoted studying (I didn't have a social life at all!! "Friends? what are those?!" lol) I learned a lot more then when I started my process. Pat yourself on the back for everything that you can remember, recall, understand, or explain without hesitation. Remembering that you are not going to know EVERYTHING helps a lot in bringing yourself down to reality. I used Kaplan, Lippincott Alt Format Qs, NCLEX apps, and "NCLEX Review Made Simple" by Paul K. Addae, in addition to the various Hurst reviews on Quizlet.com and study guides floating around here. It's important to form and STICK to your schedule of studying! I procrastinate a lot and I think I have a case of ADD as well..so focusing was very difficult at times…but I developed a routine, and I had ONE person to constantly remind me of my potentials and productivity I made throughout it all (God bless her soul). I'm not a genius, and I'm def not cocky…but there's nothing wrong with BELIEVING in yourself!!! You need to! Good luck to all who are on their journey for board examinations! If you need any more advice or have any more Qs pls feel free to ask!
