    Thanks! I used Saunders....Some of my classmates feel that there were the same questions on NCLEX as there are in Saunders and that it helped them...... I felt lost while taking it but I passed with 85 questions. Go figure. They make a Tips for Test Taking book that helped me more than the actual review book.

    LOL Thanks. Nope... wasn't me. I haven't been back up to VEEB as yet. I'm looking for a job and trying to decide which route for my RN will be the best for me.

    Hey Akanini,

    Hope all is well. I'm aware that u currently attend Helene fuld. How is the program going so far? I attended their open house last nite n was told they offer 12months,18months or 24 months part time. Do u go full time and if so how do u manage work n school? Looking @ their curriculum the course load seems to be slightly heavy. Also, how would u rate the instructors and their style of teaching to that of VEEBS? Trying to get as much info as possible. Thanks in advance and good luck in ur studies!

    First semester done!!! Congratulations to all who made it. Just wanted to wish everyone a Happy Holiday(s) and a safe winter break...enjoy guys!

    Side Note: I accidentally bumped into the infamous Akanini of this thread @ my local library. How cool is that?! Got a chance to annoy/drill her with a million questions , but she politely answered them all. Thanks Akanini lol. [Definitely LOVE Allnurses.com]

    I know right....when you said you went to the Open House, I said it must be you.lol...Congrats on passing the first semester. It only gets harder, but look at the end of the road. My friend and I usually study at my house but decided to hit the library that day. I haven't been to that library since I graduated from Hunter College in 1999!!!!!! I ended up running into current Veebsters. What a co-in-ki-dink!!! I'm here anytime for questions. Right now concentrate on Veeb...Helene will always be there...TRUST ME. The one thing I will say is try to go right away....within 3 years... You will remember what you're learning now.

    To the class of 2010 congrats! We made it! Just wanted you all to know I too passed my Nclex, and am currently working for Northshore LIJ. I got my license on my birthday in Nov and got hired 1 month later. To all who have not found a job yet keep looking, don't stop you will get something if you persevere. To the class of 2011 keep studying yes it does get harder but you can make it!
