I am taking the NCLEX tomorrow

  1. Hi Everyone,
    I am taking the NCLEX tomorrow and I am freaking out. Any suggestions?? I have taken a review course and have been studying with my study partner for almost 3 weeks now for a couple of hours everyday.
    Help someone I can't sleep.

    I will be cheering for you!! First off, don't study anymore!! Accept the fact that you are done studying for this test. Eat a light breakfast and don't be fretting about the test. Imagine you're just going back to school to take one more test.
    I would also recommend that when you first sit down at the computer to take the test, make peace with the machine. Realize that it's just you and it and it wants you to succeed. I may need psychiatric evaluation but I am an RN now so that's what counts. You will do great!

    First and foremost CONGRATULATIONS :roll I am so happy for you. Well. I have had breakfast (was not light) but I have a feeling I will be waiting awhile for my car pooler and no I have not looked at my books at all. I will let you know what I thought as soon as I can,

    Thanks for the prayers I need all the help I can get. I will update you all with tips and such when I am done.

    Hey good luck! I am so sure you will do great! You studied, and at this point there is nothing more you can do. I understand where you are coming from, though. I took my boards on Wednesday. I was nervous. The test is unusual in that you have to use all of your test taking strategies to take the test as well as your critical thinking skills. This is what I had to do to pass that darn test..and now I am an RN--five days old.

    Good luck and let us know how you did.

    Well it is over I am not sure if I should be happy or sad. It was tougher than I thought and well....the darn computer shut off at 75. I was not ready to be finished proving myself but I guess the computer felt otherwise. We will see.

    Thanks for all of the well wishes
