Hello Everyone,

I'm new to the forum and I just wanted to introduce myself. I'm in the last semester of nursing for the second time and very frustrated. I feel that I know the information but I have poor test taking abilities. I don't know what to do with myself because I missed passing by less than 5 points. How do you pick yourself up from this predictiment? How do you put this behind you and move through the next semester? Do you all have suggestions for me. I use all of the tools from med surg incredibly easy, Hogans: reviews and rationales but my biggest issue is test taking but only on certain subjects.

Any ideas or words of encouragement to the down and out nursing student.

Hello!!! i was also a second courser when i took up Nursing and with the help of the Lord, i was able to pass the December 2005 Philippine Board Exam. REview Centers make no difference.... i mean they are just there to help or to guide us on how we shall treat every question in the board exam... of course they will teach us how to memorize concepts and apply those concepts in exams... but at the end of the day, it is us, examinees, and our resolved to pass will make us NURSES.

I have been to 3 review centers before taking the Board exam last december and i noticed that they are all the same. All it gave me was confidence, which i dont have when i graduated from my school. Gapuz pentagon or RUN.... they are all OK, but do not rely on them, rely more on developing your own study habits... this counts a lot....

DOH, yes it matters....

Try also Carl Balita's Nursing Review.... this is a good aterial in the last two weeks before the exam.....

LASTLY, PRAY AND ASK THE LORD TO GUIDE YOU....

hope this will help you guys and goodluck!!!!!!!!!

Study groups ---- yes, this will help you in recalling all the concepts that you have studied... and it will also help your friends to know some/all of those concepts also.... (the essence ois sharing) your friends in return will be able to share some of the concepts which they are well versed.

SIngle/personal -- yes, this will help you concentrate on concepts which you think is your weakness... after this, you can again re-group your friends and do a group study.

TESTMANSHIP- answering past exams and reading review books like saunders, lippinncott, mosby and many more... there are only 500 questions in the board exam.. try spending at least 2 hourse a day answering questions and knowing rationales.... the more questions the better....

COFFEE SHOPS---- this really helps, at least in my case... you may do it alone or with your classmates... it is very encouraging to see other students who also study.... and besides you will be able to meet other students who are also studying nursig and preparing for the board exam also... a good time to exchange notes from different review centers...

Candies- make sure you have butterballs in your pocket.... remember, your brain needs glucose to work...

BREAKTIME- give yourself at least 15 minute of rest every two hours...

PRAY... IT REALLY WORKS

GOODLUCK TO ALL OF YOU I HOPE THIS WILL HELP YOU

hi, im also a graduating nursing student this year. i hope i could pass d board exam. ..i believe nothings is impossible... let's do our best, and God will take care of the rest. happy new year. :)

:) :) To all pre-student and student nurses: Welcome to the allnurses forums :) :)

May each of you pass our exams :) :) and reach your goals. :balloons:

:Melody: Have A Very Happy New Year :Melody:

A returning pre-student nurse,

Angels’

Thanks for all of the good advice. :wink2:

Thanks again everyone for the kind remarks and good advice.

Hi! Anticipating the board is a bit worrisome. Review does give you confidence and enhance your study habits. Just don't over-do things. Try to establish good study habits that works best for you and don't forget to take some time off doing such 'coz you don't want to saturate yourself.

You've practically learned what you needed to know in school. I believe review is just "polishing" the gem that you already possess.:specs:

Prayer help soothes all worries and fears.Ask your love ones to pray for you too, it helps. On the day of the exam say a little prayer before you start answering the questions..ask the Holy Spirit to guide you and to keep you relax and collective..mental block..that's the last thing you want to happen to you so try shaking off the nerves by praying on the day of the exam. Be positive all the time, believe in yourself and you'll make it.

I kept repeating the verse "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me" on my way to the testing site. Goodluck!

I agree with Jameson. My cousin took the NCLEX exam 3 times before she finally passed. On her fourth try, she emailed the entire family to pray for her. She was sufering from test anxiety. Two weeks later, she passed the test. I believe God made it possible.

He is awesome!

himashkaimitopoh vbmenu_register("postmenu_1449408", true); , i assume you are asking about the local board exam right? i just passed the december 2005 board exam and I can say it's by God's grace. we can study hard and do our best and pray, but ultimately it is God's will that will prevail. I prayed specifically to have self-control and patience (fruit of the Spirit right?). I made a study plan that i really folloed,for example which books i intend to study and what subjects, then i divided the pages of the book and made goals per day. For example for the month of january study CHD and PSYCH, what books on those subjects? . Divide the pages for example 300 pages, divided by 30.. so thats 10 pages for one day. You end up having confidence and feeling a sense of accomplishment as you are able to finish goals you have set for the day and the week. it's so expensive to enroll in review centers, so i just borrowed from my friends the tests they took in the review centers so i can practice.

hope that helps :)

Congratulations..........Galatians 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

Give Him the glory!

Way to go!

hi.. i am a nursing student too.. hopefully to graduate this coming march and wish to take my licensure examination this coming june. I've been lookin over the net for online review for nursing licensure examination... i found some and i keep on searching until i found your post just now. Thank you for posting this.. i know this would be a great help to us pre-nurses. Comments and suggestions really help us in away. Our school stated its review classes since the first semester but still our knowledge about nursing is somewhat limited. Me and my classmates decided to take the Licensure Examination this June, until we heard the news that there will be new type of exam (per subject)as well as new sets of questions (is this true?) this coming examination and this gave us to think twice whether to take the exam this june or on december. My other concern is, i wish there would be more online review sites that would give lots of questions and tips for the said examination. I am still looking for sites too that has online interaction (chats) for nurses and pre- nurses... this way we will have live discussion about any subject matter as the same time gain friends and share some fun... what do you think?

hi! I just took the board and i found Saunders book very helpful also try URC in makati review center.Most of the nurses in phil. recommend it.For me I read Saunders and 3 weeks online in Ncbn and I did it.Just have faith and study hard you can do it.
