    SuzanaS I am just like you. I too get anxious about exams and have anxiety about the Nclex. My exam is in June and I plan to pass it on the first try. I agree that Saunders is a good book. I know alot of Nurse graduates as well as myself get so caught up on passing that they want to try every book in the world. Listen, I learned a few things today and that is to relax. Don't go around trying to read all different types of books and Cd's it makes no sense and besides it is probably a waste of time. Buy one good review book, get 2 great Nclex review Cd's and focus on those only. They say that you should do at least 3,000 ques before the nclex so get a cd that has that and if you buy two diff type of Cd's that is 7,000 ques to review. I am learning that time is so precious that we can't waste it.

    Thank you so much for your advice and kind words. I graduated from nursing school with honors, but I am terrified of NCLEX-RN. It is comforting to know that I am not the only one being anxious

    Unlike you I am very new to this forum and I could not have possibly been aware of your qualifications and background. I just read your posting recommending Saunders book and you sounded like someone who knew what they were talking about, so I asked for your advise regarding best option for reviewing for NCLEX-RN for international graduates. Thank you for trying to help, but I do not require any information or assistance with visa or immigration, since I am a US citizen (It is a long story that I do not care to discuss on the forum).
    I definitely agree that 3-5 day reviews are of very little value, but that is all that I have found available thus far. And since, as I have mentioned to you, I do experience anxiety when tested, I would want to take every oportunity to learn, review/refresh and succeed.
    So, do I understand correctly that you do not teach in the US but only overseas? Can you suggest any good courses, reviews, or tools for me to use to prepare for NCLEX-RN? I do have Saunders Q & A REVIEW FOR NCLEX-RN as well as SAUNDERS COMPREHENSIVE REVIEW FOR NCLEX-RN.
    By the way do you "specialize" or only work with certain countries or just with international community in general? - I do have a few friends from school that are interested in immigrating to US.

    Thank you for your help
    I actually help nurses from all over the world.......if you will send me your e-mail address via pm, I will add you to my list of nurses/students that I send review articles to each week. Everyone has passed using what I have sent them. Depending on where you trained, and you can send it in a pm if you wish, I will be better able to tell you what will work the best for you. Each country has different training methods and hospitals function differently over here as well. The nurses here play a much bigger role then in most other countries. I am only trying to help you with what you originally asked.
    I try to tailor articles and notes to what will be beneficial to you.......but it is your choice.............these are the questions that I ask of everyone...

    I suggest that you look at the International forum....the information there will be quite beneficial to you.............
