I've been reading posts everyday regarding NCLEX for some time now. Well, today was the day- the day of NCLEX. I have always excelled in my classes and have scored between 87.5-99.99 on all of my HESI exams. Many of my friends said that NCLEX was easier than HESI, but I must beg to differ. I took a total of 160 ? and I felt overwhelmed when the test was finally over. I felt like everything that I had learned in nursing school plus all of my studying was just not enough. For example, Addison's disease- i know that it is an adrenocortical deficiency, weight loss, weakness, hyperpigmentation and much more is involved........but just knowing facts like this about a disease was not enough. I felt like I guessed on 75-80% of the test. I hope i guessed well
! Enough rambling - To all that are testing soon- good luck- and go with your first instinct!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
