    Thanks Carla! A vacation sounds wonderful!

    Jen- I star work on June 8th so rescheduling is out for me. It'll be fine, I'm going to work myself crazy getting ready. The Kaplan is really helping, I just wish I had more content review. Ther are somethings I would like to review and I don't have nearly enough time to review my stack of nursing books. It will be OK.
    Thanks for the suggestions!

    The content review is what I'm really liking about the Drexel online course. It's poking some of the brain cells awake to re-make connections. I also went this morning to the hospital and peed in a cup for my drug test, and then went out and bought 140 bucks worth of new scrubs--at our nursing school, you could only wear white scrubs, and I now HATE WHITE!

    LOL. OUr color for school was Royal blue. Guess what color I won't be wearing when I start work? My hospital has a dress code for nurses- white tops with dark scrub pants. I bought new white tops a few weeks ago.

    I never heard of Drexel before?
    Kaplan is good for question review. I also did the course so if I don't pass my boards the first time I get my $350 back. It was required by our school.

    How's the studying going for you today? I'm taking a break by working in my garden and cleaning up the house.

    I did test 6 on Kaplan today- 200 questions and got a 67%. If you score over 60 on the last two you are supposed to be able to pass your boards... we'll see.

    I went to that discussion board on here that is a study thread under NXCLEX i think. It was started a few years ago but it has a lot of great content on it.

    Otherwise doing great. My house was cleaned this morning and it's already a wreck. Everything is on hold until after Wednesday!

    I had 1teens, I know it was ove 113, that was the last time I checked and I answered a few more questions so I'm not sure how many I answered!

    Are you/did you sign up for their 2 day answer on whether you passed? I'm going to do that. Make sure you let us know how you did.
