Scheduled Nclex PN

  1. 0 I scheduled my nclex pn for feb 9 at 8am. Im a college student enrolled at Drexel University. PearsonVue is right around the corner from me. I don't want to delay taking the nclex any longer. I need to pass, no if ands and buts. Im terrified I took the nclex 3 times already and failed. I need to pass the nclex to stay in school there is not enough money to pay for college. Passing the nclex is my only hope or im doomed. I dont know what it is Ive gotten near the passing standard for all the categories except basic care and comfort I got below passing. I have bad test anxiety, my heart starts racing I feel likes its going to pop out of my chest. I dont want the computer to shut off at 85, I will cry. I do about 150 questions everyday and Im starting to read the rationals. I have exam cram, the kaplan book and the saunders. The cds arent compatible with my mac so im using nclex online. I also review drugs and do a few math problems. Any advise help please

    Hey.. @mmichel26

    It seems like you have a lot on your plate. I graduated nursing school in Aug and at the end of Aug registered for college classes. I'm a single mom. My son just turned two and just my son and I live alone in out apt (so quiet time.. I don't really have that). In addition, I work 30 hours a week. I realized that school was not a priority and that I needed to study. So, I withdrew from my classes and used the time to study. I used Lippcott NCLEX-PN Plus Q&A along with Hurst-PN Review. Lippcott was great for doing test questions. Made Hurt look like a walk in the park. BUT.. Hurst-PN Review is GREAT for preparing you for taking NCLEX. And, the NCLEX questions are very similar to HURST-PN Review. While taking my NCLEX all I could hear was Marlene in my head. I was like this NCLEX was Marlene all the way. While taking the NCLEX my comp shut off at 86 questions. I was scared to death. I even cried. A few hours after I took the test. I did the Pearson Vue Trick and I passed!! So, don't worry about how many questions you get. Just make sure you know the core information and know what to do to keep the patient safe. Allow, follow-up questions or further teaching questions.. Know that. And, I only had one math question and it was on drop factor and I go it wrong :/

    I highly recommend Hurst-PN Review! (Def read the chapter on "How to Tackle a Priority Question"
    Know the charts in the HURST Review.

    You need to know the core information while taking the exam remember:
    1) I'm taking the NCLEX... there's a problem
    2)There are symptoms in the scenerio
    3)Can you fix the problem with the options you have been given?

    I hope this helped

    Best wishes!!!

    Def know your lab values. The questions regarding labs are not going to be direct, but you will need to identifty when something is out of range. Take a deep breath and take your time. Stay positive. You will pass. All the best to you!
