Studying for boards

  1. [font=Comic Sans MS]Hi, I'm new to the chat room scene and a recent graduate of the LPN program here in Indiana. School has wiped me out financially and I'm looking for any tips to a free way of studying for the NCLEX. Everyone wants money, and I haven't any.

    By the time I finished RN school, I too was out of money. I studied for boards by reviewing all of my notes and brushing up on things I had forgotten. I don't know about everyone else, but I found that critical thinking was the thing that helped me pass on my first try. I crammed lots of info into my brain before the test, but it didn't help much. I also checked out some review books with sample questions from the school library that were also helpful. GOOD LUCK!

    Newkiddie,
    I really admire you! I, too, live in n. part of Indiana. Want to start Pre-Nursing soon - here you are studying for the NCLEX. Wow. What fortitude to stick with your program. I am an older student looking for a small nursing college, not big classes...Was wondering if you can get a loan in order to study for the big test. It'll prob. be worth it. Then you're most likely "home free!" Sounds exciting to me. I wish you only The Best!!

    Yes, I too am an older student/grad I decided that it was time to give something back. I plan to check out the library for study text books and to continue going over my notes. It's stressful at this point. Good luck in all you do
