Scared of NCLEX-PN Major test anxiety

  1. Hi, guys...
    I'm finally getting around to the NCLEX-PN this weekend. Scared to death because everyone in my graduating class has passed so far...I really don't want to make history.
    I've been studying since January, at least 2-3 hours a day and more on the weekends. Tried ATI-got a lousy "tutor" and just couldn't get past 58% on pharmacology. Yeah, I know, can't blame her, it's me. I've been using Saunders all along so I kept doing that. A couple of weeks ago, I started the 3-week NCSBN Learning extension and I'm liking it really well. Lots of questions everyday...and drug calculations.
    Why am I still so nervous?

    We all are that nervous. There are only a few professions that make you take a life-altering test before you can get a job.

    I don't think any of us feel prepared when we go to the test center. However, you graduated nursing school, you know this stuff. Take a deep breath and relax. You can do this!!!!
