Passed my NCLEX!!!!!

  1. 1 When I started studying for the NCLEX RN I told myself I would have to come back here to share my experience because the advice that I've seen here is invaluable and I'm grateful for it. The experience itself was nerve racking, the center was nice and the people were friendly so that helped put me a little bit more at ease. They did all the scans, fingerprints, pictures, signatures, then I went to the computer inside the monitored room, did the tutorial and started the test. I had to take a minute to put my feet flat on the ground make my back straight and took a few deep breaths. You have to be able to focus, it is hard so when you take the test give yourself mini breaks just zone out for like 15 seconds or something, stare at the wall ..give your brain a second to refresh I did this and it helped me. O by the way I forgot to tell you, I had 118 questions and I know it was 118 because for every one after 75 I was praying it'd be over already. I walked out of the test 100% thinking I failed I went home and as I was on the verge of tears I did the pearson trick and it didn't let me re register, I still didn't believe it until I got my unofficial results.
    A key point is give yourself enough time to study and do as many questions as you can in practice. I used kaplan's q banks I did not go to the classes, I also reviewed my notes from nursing school, used saunders review book and their CD questions were helpful, I also used prioritization/delegation and assignment book I found this very helpful because I was weak in prioritization questions and I feel like I had ALOT of them on the NCLEX.

    When you take the test, take your time, keep calm, focus, and breath!! Good luck to you!
