    hi, im new here and i need help on how to apply for NCLEX, i heard something about the eligibily thing first.. can you give me some idea on what should i do first when applying for NCLEX exam. thanks to anyone who would reply to my queries..
    Please go over to the International Forum and read the sticky called the Primer at the top of it. There is much information there that you need to know before you do a thing.

    There is no such thing as applying for the NCLEX exam, it requires that you actually apply to a state Board of Nursing for licensure as an RN, and you must have approval from them to be able to sit for the exam. There is no place to apply directly for that exam.

    You must be made eligible to sit for the exam. Your credentials must be accepted by the BON, and you must meet all requirements for licensure with the NCLEX exam just being the final step in the licensing process. It is far from the only step.

    1. what are the materials that you used? saunders 3rd ed. i focused on one material and worked on mastering the concepts.

    2. how many hours per day did you study? how many questions did u answer per day? about 2-3 hrs in the morning and in the afternoon. i exercised in the morning and took a nap in the afternoon -- to promote good blood circulation to the brain and better retention... i followed suzanne's study guide. just refer to her for the suggested number of questions.. again, thanks suzanne .

    3. how many days or months in total you studied before taking the exam? around 3 months, it takes discipline to study on your own. it will be advisable to follow a study plan to avoid waste of time and to cover most of the necessary topics. take breaks though, you will find them beneficial for your mind and body.

    4. what are the specific strategies that you used or the the test taking skills you applied during the exam? before i even touched the pc, i lifted the test to the lord and trusted on his will. that helped me relieve my anxiety as well as analyze clearly the questions.

    5. take one or take two? did it on my first try with 75 questions, by the grace of god.

    to those who are yet to take the nclex, keep the faith. god bless.

    check ncsbn.org regarding requirements for your eligibility depending on the state you want to be licensed; submit all the requiremnts thru their BON. Wait for their eligibility response, and after you get the eligibility letter from them, you can now register at pearson vue online for your ATT and NCLEX schedule.
