    Oh, it's COUNTDOWN time !!! I'll be crossing all fingers and toes, even "squeezing my thumbs" for you as we do in Germany... so you'll get the WORKS !!! Will you be able to look up your results on the internet, or call in... or will you have to just wait it out like I did? (sux)

    Well, Kiddo, we're right here rootin' for ya ! Study hard and go in CONFIDENT (even if you're not feeling it, heh...)

    Go, Tele, Go !!!

    congrats! i took mine in april and passed on the first try....with 265 questions!!! just hang in there, wear comfy clothes, and take breaks when you need them. you'll make it out alive, i swear. do something relaxing the day before- i took an NCLEX book to the beach and did quetsions while listening to the water. it was awesome.

    by the way- don't pay NCLEX money to get your results fast. i paid and i realized i didn't have to. i just went to the florida state board of nursing website and looked up my name on there. for FREE. so, i'd recommend that if your state has a website.

    congrats again, ally

    Tele, you will do great!

    I take mine on Wed I can't believe it. I'm gonna do one more comprehensive practice exam and maybe review lab values. I don't know what else I can study?!

    Thanks for all the well wishes. In MI, we can look up our results in 3 days via the board of nursing website. That's what I did last year when I took my LPN boards.

    I'll let everyone know what happens.

    You can and will do it!!! Take it slow is my #1 advice: give yourself 60 seconds per question, this is what was suggested to me by nclex instructors,and it worked!!! take a break, close your eyes, i wrote down on the scratch board they give you "You are doing this!" and i wrote it down (to beef me up) every so often when i felt my head whirl. i left the exam feeling awful, like it was the worst test of all, but i still passed!!! the knowledge you need for this test is in there, just have faith in your self, one question at a time!

    In addition to the comfy clothes, I would recommend bringing a sweater. The testing room I was in was downright chilly.
