Passed NCLEX after graduating in 2010!

  1. 2 I took the NCLEX in May 2010 after graduating and failed it because I barely studied. Now, a few years later, I thought I would give it another try and studied a bunch of review books but I failed the test again and found that it was too much information all at once. I scheduled the exam for 45 days later and did all the questions of NCLEX 3500, the study guide posted here: http://allnurses.com/nclex-discussio...ex-750555.html, and made sure I knew my labs and infection control..and passed this last time! If you have been out of school for a few years like me, this may work for you! Good luck to all who are testing and I wish you the best!

    Do you have any advice on what type of lab values and tests to know or how much of them you need to know....I'm in information overload!!

    i did about 400 questions daily when I had days off, but 200 questions when I worked half days. I went through questions pretty slowly..I felt the NCLEX style questions were similar to NCLEX 3500 more than anything else I've studied. The link I posted also includes a list of lab values to know. I know it seems impossible at times, but don't give up! You can do it! Just keep studying and take the test as many times as you need to..some people are just horrible test takers..it doesn't mean that you are any less worthy of being the best nurse there is. Good luck!
