God it is killing me, I am taking my nclex in 3 days. This has been killing for a long time and I just want it to be over with already. I am starting to get nervous, and having feelings of what if I don't pass. I am scheduled to take my test on Monday and I am starting to second guess myself whether not I am prepared. If you guys really want to know the truth, I have been studying since Nov. 16, my last day of school. I have been doing it nonstop with little breaks. It kills me that I have been studying for so long. But, now that I have three days left I am mainly trying to brush on areas that I am having difficulty with. I am mainly reviewing Saunders, but I just finished the ncsbn online review with learnext. com.
I will tell you guys more, I know I read about someone else who had a similar story. Basically I graduated in my class with honors, and I even gave a speech at my graduation. Feelings of embarrassment come to me if I fail. I am taking this test for myself, and not for anyone, but I just hope I pass. I really want to get my life started. But, I guess I am just feeling normal if I have emotions of failure, embarrassment, and unpreparedness going into the nclex. Did you guys feel that way once you took your nclex. Everyone around me tells me that I will pass, but you really don't know. Thanks for any kind advice, and hopefully my head will clear by Monday. Please pray for me.

Took my NCLEX today stoped at 85 questions.
I had 20-30 select all that apply. Usually missed those questions when studing.:icon_roll
Last week I debated on rescheduling but went ahead and took the test.
I also studied with kaplins q bank and was scoring in the 70%-80% a few 60%. Im freaking out I just keep telling myself whats the worst thing that can happen? Fail and retest in 45 days. I also graudated with honors 3rd in my class. The downfall is Im working as a GVN and everyone will know I failed becaure they revoke your permit when you don't pass.
Keep studying and brush up in the areas you feel inadequate in. Let me know how yopu do. I'll be praying for my fellow NCLEX testers.
Wow...please let us know how you did ok. How many pharmacology questions did they ask you if you don't mind me asking, also what meds were they? One more thing, did you experience alot of med surg questions? thanks. I will pray for you...I know you will pass.
I have tomorrow and then monday will be my day. I am planning to take tomorrow of with just a small tinge of studying, and relax the rest of the day.
