    That's awesome. All the more reason to take it with nada. I think I do bad with more time anyway. Tend to over analyze = not good.

    I think you need try it without the extension. The worse thing you could do taking your boards is to analyze and ponder questions. Remember if you are caring for patients quick thinking is needed. I would like to suggest that you get medical care so you can get yourself the care that you deserve. Good luck in whatever you decide.

    I'll be honest...I don't see how your program allowed you to have accommodations and additional time on tests when you did not have a documented disability.

    The doctor, is correct. You most likely won't need all the time.

    It's documented, but to many folks, it's a minor, temporary condition compared to other disabilities out there. There's a difference between permanent versus temporary.

    So in your studying, remember this. If you overanalyze anyway, extra time would just make your head spin I would think. Remember the answers are "plain and basic" <---which is probably not a great description, but what I am trying to say is do NOT look into the question beyond what it is asking you. To take extended time would be to your deterrment.
    And as you are studying, take those practice tests. As many as you can. Correct them, and then you will see where you need to brush up on. But most importantly, it will show you how the questions are asked, as it is a distinct style of questioning.
    Best of luck and I do agree with the pp's. Take it, see how you do, and if you do not pass, then rethink--Does your school that you attended have tutoring services? Can you access that for test prep? If you had an accommodation plan at school, this would be something that perhaps you can access. I would speak to your guidance counselor at the school.

    ya i had extra time through highschool on test as well as during my first degree, yet for some reason I didn't need it for nursing.

    The only thing I required was to: read answer read...read the question, answer it, and re read so i answered the right question and didn't skip words like I sometimes over look...butterfly.

    Please keep us posted on how you do with the NCLEX. Hopefully soon we'll see you back here as CrazyCoconut, RN!!
    Just wanted to post back on this thread. I did well on the NCLEX-RN and got my license in the mail today. I had no accommodations and just took it with a confident attitude that almost scared me because I'm normally not that confident! Thank you everyone, you all are amazing supporters and I just love this website. Posted a new thread about my story: http://allnurses.com/general-nursing...ml#post7580637I am now CrazyCoconut, RN!!!!
