Planning to take NCLEX-RN,Graduated 5 years ago

  1. Hi i am living here in California for nearly 5 years now.I got my BSN degree back home in the Philippines in march 2002 and since then i have not taken the NCLEX board exam yet,because i am scared to fail the exam,and i do not have the confidence to pass the exam.So what i did for the past five years is working as a Nursing Assistant in a hospital and did not studied at all for the exam.But now i realized that i have to pass this freakin exam,thinking that i spent 4 years just to get my BSN degree.So i am planning to give it a shot.My concern is,how can i prepare to take the exam?Is it advisable for me to take Kaplan's Complete NCLEX-RN Review?I am so worried about this since i was out of school for a long time and i havent been studying at all for five years.Any asuggestions?thanks you so much!

    If I were you, I think I would take Kaplan review. I just recently took it and passed the NCLEX. It will help you get used to the NCLEX style questions and give you test taking strategies. I also reviewed Saunders book and did those questions, it has more content. You've got that BSN, don't be afraid, study and go get that license you earned!!!

    I thought I could procrastinate! What are you waiting for? The worst thing that could happen is that you fail. Then you just study some more and take it again! One of my co-workers (who got her BSN in the Phils) kept taking the boards until she passed them on the 4th try. You can do it too.
