New mommy passed NCLEX TODAY!!!

  1. Well I was kind of worried, all my friends had taken the Nclex months ago but I was focused on having my baby more than studying. An since I had my baby, and the cost of baby stuff, I was not able to afford to take a review course and three months had passed since school. I just borrowed the Saunders book from my friend, took two weeks at my inlaws house out of state to study so grandma could watch my baby for me and I would have no distractions. Came back to Tampa the day before the test (an the day before the hurricaine was supposed to hit us) and relaxed with fiancee and baby didnt think about studying. I was so nervous I couldnt sleep, only got two hours, so I drank half a pot of coffee in the morning for fuel. Took the test, it shut of at around 100 questions, I was nervous, kinda thought I failed but really didnt worry too much cause everyone thinks they fail. This morning woke up and ask my fincee to look an see if passed. He came in the room with a smile and a printed piece of paper with the word pass on it. All i could do was cry, thank god, and kiss baby and daddy. :kiss :kiss

    May I just ask you, what Saunders' book did you use? Is it the comprehensive or the question & answer?

    Congratulations by the way:wink2:

    I used the comprehensive review that had a cd with it, the CD has a couple thousand questions like the Q and A book. So I would just suggest getting the comprehensive review.
