Stressed over the NCLEX-RN

  1. I am taking the NCLEX-Rn in 2 days and I am so scared!!!!!!! I graduated with a 3.7 GPA and did very well in nursing school, but I've heard so horror stories about this exam. I've been doing questions from a CD-rom since I graduated last month. Is that enough? What can you tell me about the exam? Are the questions similar to questions in the NCLEX review books? Is it really just basic "entry level nursing" as all my instructors have stressed? Any tips or thoughts would be greatly appreciated

    Thank-you all for your support I took my boards on the 18th of June and on the 21st I found out that I'm finally an R.N. I PASSED I got 75 questions and then the computer shut off, it was challenging but I made it. Let me know if you all have any questions or if I can help you in any way. I'm so happy!!!!!!!!!!

    I will be taking my NCLEX-RN in about three weeks and I am extremely nervous, even though I had good grades in nursing school. Can anyone tell me how the test went, the best way to prepare, and the difficulty level of the exam? Do you feel that nursing school prepared you well enough for the exam?

    I took a review course and have been doing practice questions. Is this enough preparation? Can you give me any other advice on preparing for the exam?

    Any input would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Please take the time to check out the International forum regarding states as lie California there are issues. It doesn't matter which state you apply licensure for the NCLEX is national therefore the same regardless where you are and where you apply. At some stage you will be affected by retrogression so may as well take the time to do your research before applying

    Also to add the original dates on this post is 2001

    I am sooooooooooo freaked out, I don't know, I already went throughout all this when I took the LPN Nclex, but I think this time is worst. I don't remember.
    All I know is that I practiced with kaplan for my LPN and I had an average of 55% with new questions, and I passed at 85 questions.
    I don't want to be overconfident, but I got an average of 57% for the RN. I amj doing saunders test, I saved 300 Kaplan questions for the week before the test, and I have the Hurst review. Most of the people I graduated with has passed, only one girls didn't. I guess, every other new nurse in the U.S. is feeling the same.
