Students Student Assist


Hello all, I am new here and I just started my first ADN program this spring I worked hard for the last two year to get accepted in this program, right now I am taking Pharmacology and Nursing concepts and I am doing great in these classes, well the third class was the nursing skills which include the clinical portion and I made my choice to drop it before I fail it because I did terrible in the written exams which included those very tricky neclex questions, I was shocked that my average was 65 in this class and we need at least 77 to pass, I just got overwhelmed and frustrated since my gpa was 4 before I started this program, and now I have to start this skills next fall and I really need advices from you guys about how to be successful next time when I take this class and how to answer these tricky questions. Do I have to study the power point slides or read the book in order to pass nursing skills class? for the Pharmacology I am doing great and still in the A average and its also neclex type questions but I really don't know what to do for the skill it was really frustrating and thats why I decided to postpone it to the fall because I want to pass it so bad and I really wants to be a good nurse.

Any suggestions are welcome

You need to learn how to answer NCLEX questions... they're tricky, you're gonna have them your entire time in school and you'll have to answer them to pass, well, the NCLEX exam :)

I bought the Saunders Comprehensive NCLEX review and answered questions before exams on the topic we were being tested on. Also, at the end of each chapter in your book, there are NCLEX questions... essentially you're just going to have to learn how to answer them.

I found this book helpful when I started my program.
