Hi guys! I will be taking nclex-RN in almost less than 24 hours. Today I plan to go over basics such as infection control, my PDA book, and lab values. I've done all I can do to prepare for this exam and now all I can do is to... Read More

    Also, here is a tip: look at the choices over a few times before answering. With the above passing level questions, the answer is not always obvious. I actually caught myself a few times just picking the obvious answer and hit the 'next' button but i slowed myself down and broke down each option...and then I could see that the answer does not just jump out at you. They were tricky little buggers but you can critically think it out for sure! You'll do great!
    Thank you so much for this tip. Congrats to you as well... You did it!!!!

    Two things I learned taking the NCLEX today (75 questions and the good pop up, WOOHOO!).

    1. Slow down. On a few questions I went so fast I know I did not choose the correct answer because just as I clicked "next" I saw the right answer. And on a SATA question I chose only one answer.
    2. Exactly what a poster above said about the answer not being obvious on higher level questions. It's probably not the obvious answer.

    Good luck tomorrow! You will be fine.

    Thanks everyone for your well wishes!!!! I'll keep you updated. I want to freak out at times but I refuse to let my nerves get the best of me. I cried yesterday and on and off since Ive started nursing school and have had plenty of restlessness nights. I'm trying something different today... I hope it helps!!!!

    Trust me its best to relax the night before. I just took it today and got 75 questions and the good pop up. I'm still waiting for the "official" results. However, my nerves were under control once I got to the computer. The higher level questions were near impossible to know the "right" answer. I had alot of those narrowed to two.

    That sounds like me! Two days before I took it, I had anxiety and was bursting into tears at any given moment all day! I felt like i was going crazy. It's all normal tho.

    Don't freak out! Try to relax... And believe in yourself! I've done all I can do! I'm trying to remain calm so I'll be able to focus tomorrow. And tell yourself over and over you can do it! I want to freak out too, but I know it will not help. I pray that we will be RNs after we leave our test tomorrow!!!!
    Thank you! we can do this! By tomorrow, we'll be RNs!!!!!
