    My thoughts are with you. Try to rest tonight and "veg out". No alcohol or sleep aids to make you drowsy tomorrow. Eat a good breakfast and remember that YOU are a nursing school graduate!

    I was planning on vegging out at the beach today, but it's been raining off and on here all day. I have put away the books and went shopping this morning.

    I'm not usually a nervous person, but I'm starting to become one.

    Go Tele, Go Telo, Go Tele, GO !!!

    Wish you all the best, Girl !

    Don't let the questions throw you if they seem not quite what you were expecting.. don't let it frazzle you ! Know AHEAD of time, that the questions are not like those you "studied", ok? Just think them through, do the process of elimination, use good nursing JUDGEMENT, remember to prioritize !!! (airway, breathing, circulation) in all questions... it applies to more than you think !

    Just use good common sense and judgement. You'll be FINE.

    Let us know how it went ! (well, I'm SURE you WILL... just as the rest of us did......) WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHH !!! This was the worst test of my life... I just KNOW I failed !!! etc., etc., etc.

    heh, heh....

    I took mine last week and passed. You will too!! A few tips that may help: Take deep breaths and relax as best you can. Take your time. You have five hours to take it, which is plenty of time, so don't feel like you need to rush. Do not pay any attention to what number question you are on. I think I was on #60 before I even looked. When you answer a question and hit enter, it is gone, so don't worry about it anymore, concentrate on the next one. Read each question twice to make sure you have read it correctly, and then think of the answer before even looking at the choices. I was typically able to eliminate 2 answers, then I would read the question again to see exactly what they were asking for-Sometimes two answers might apply, but the correct answer would be related exactly what the question was asking, i.e., priority, first, immediately etc. Hope this helps. Good luck!!

    Hey girl! Best of luck to you! I'm a really nervous person when it comes to tests, but it does help me to relax before the tests. DON'T CRAM THE NIGHT BEFORE THE TEST!!! I did that, and I was screwed for my CNA test. Just realx, chill, and watch some tv, hang out on all nurses. Shopping was a good idea. It always relaxes me.

    You don't need prayers. You've went to school. You've studied. You've done the footwork. You've got it!
