Nclex tomorrow... need some positive thoughts

  1. 0 Hi everyone. I love love love this site. I graduated in May.Scheduled for nclex in less than 24 hrs! Besides my hubby and kids (my biggest cheerleaders), no one else knows I am even testing tomorrow. I would love if the allnurses community would keep me in their thoughts and prayers tonight. I feel in my heart that I have done everything I can to prepare for this test. I am not overly confident ( NCLEX I respect thee), but I am not lacking in confidence either. I cannot tell if I am calm or just losing it. I am hoping for 75 questions, but I will not freak out if I go past that golden number. I did hurstlive review and their q review for content, saunders review book/cd for questions and as a reference for the areas I need more understanding in, and Kaplan strategy book to help me depict the questions. So please send some love and positive thoughts my way. Thanks in advance.

    Lets be strong together. Best of luck to you too. I know im told to relax today, but I am still reviewing some labs and meds and the AN study guide. I did take a lill time out and watched Silver Linings Playbook. So it was kinda a psych review too, haha.

    I was a mess this morning.Got maybe 3 hrs of sleep. Tried to eat a good breakfast but could only take afew bites b/c is was so nervous. I did not map out my route to my testing center and ended up across the street from it. Finally make it into the center.During the test I doubted most of my answers. I was always stuck between picking one of two options. It feels like a blur. I took about 2 hours and 75questions. I held it together pretty well. Whenever I would get discouraged Iwould mentally tell myself “You got this”.


    When I got to my car my 9y/ohad text me “I believe in you MOM, you can do it”. I fell apart… all the emotions I had been stuffing away finally came to the surface and I was in mycar crying like a baby. I didn’t know what to do. Should I sit there, drive home, go to the park? I was so used to studying, I couldn’t think of any other activities. I could not figure out if I did good or not. I am a big believer in signs, so On my way home I turned on the radio and my RN class graduation song came on,which gave me a lil hope.

    I got home and kids ran up tome hugging and congratulating me. I was so afraid of failing and disappointing themb/c they have sacrificed so much along with me during nursing school and during nclex prep. I was too nervous to try the PVT right away.

    I snuck into my bedroom and logged onto youtube to watch directions for the pvt. With each click and entryI made, I wanted to vomit….

    Pearson vue said delivery successful and would not let me enter cc information. Message said sumin like I could not schedule to test and to contact my board!!!!!!!!!!! So if I did it right….. I think I PASSED!!!!!!!!!! I feel like I need a real actual license # b4 I can relax. I am so numb I haven’t screamed with joy yet bc it seems unreal. Thank you to everyone that threw me sum love here on allnurses. I will update more later. But right now I have some long overdue play time with my kids.
