    I just got my license in the mail today. I took the NCLEX last Thursday...didn't study one single bit. I figured I should have learned all that stuff in nursing school. I was right. I had 85 questions and it shut off.

    Are you kiddin, some people are born with a gold spoon, while some have to work their butt out, all the best, God bless.

    Believe me, I didn't have a gold spoon. I worked hard throughout nursing school with three kids and a husband at home. I guess I just retain information well. And I had a very good nursing program. I had an excellent preceptorship and really got to experience a lot during clinicals. I love the human body and find it so fascinating that I just soak up information like a sponge. I was really nervous about the NCLEX, but it wasn't bad.

    Thanks! I am very happy...but, I made one promise to my husband. Since he missed going turkey hunting last April in Texas (because I was in LPN school), I will wait and get a job after this season of deer hunting. And on to RN school in January!

    Congrats to all that passed the NCLEX...and good fortune to those who are about to take it.

    6)focus on the question not the #- i found that if i took my lisence and covered the corner of the computer screen with it i would focus better on the question instead of what number i was on.
    [font="comic sans ms"] i have to say i love that idea! ever since i found out about the computer displaying what question number you were on, i've been trying to figure out how to cover it up! thank you for finding that way! i know i don't want to know what number i'm on, i just want to stay focused on the task at hand, earning that license and earning the title "rn"!!!

    Givsuamber- I really enjoyed seeing something other than "I passed!!" from someone who just passed the NCLEX. So nice that the first thing you thought to do was to pass along helpful tips to others- kudos & mega congrats!!!

    Nice recommendations. I will definitely take all of them into consideration. Especially covering the number. I am planning to take the exam in December and I'm going to need all the advice I can get. Thanks.
