Elizabeth C, I commissioned in to the Navy as an officer and I'll be working at the Naval hospital. I'd like to think I'm used to traffic, being familiar with Austin, Dallas and Houston traffic....but I have a very bad feeling that nothing has prepared me for the D.C. area.

So what's across the street from the Naval hospital? I've never been to Maryland.

NIH is across the street and so is the Metro station. Depending on the the time that your tour starts it might be best to commute by Metro, just don't ride in the end cars.

Ok, so I'm in AZ and its 11:00 pm, the night befor my big test. I am FREAKING out! I studied with Kaplan and did everything I was supposed to, but now that the test is tomorrow I feel like I know NOTHING! Reading everything on here makes me feel so much better to know that I am not alone! For anyone who reads this, please pray for me! Thanks and good luck to everyone testing with me tomorrow :specs:

GOOD LUCK , Read the questions carefully and if you have studied up until this point you should be fine.

So nervous ... took NCLEX this morning. Had 80 questions and felt horrible when I left. I could not believe that after everything I went through the past four years in nursing school it was over in an hour and a half. I am on pins and needles until friday when I can check for the results! Aaaaahhhhhhh!!:banghead:

IF and when all goes well with the NCLEX on JULY 31st (wish me luck) , I report to OIS August 16- Sept 18th. I know you have to be excited because I am. I will be stationed in Portsmouth, VA. Did you "dress up" when you got commissioned? I get commissioned in August, but dont know what to wear.

Ah, so you're going right after me. I finish up on August 14th. My recruiter made me go the whole nine yards when I commissioned. Well, he didn't MAKE me but he offered and then my family and faculty insisted that I do it. I commissioned on stage at my graduation ceremony in service dress blues. It was terribly embarrassing but I'm glad I did it. When I enlisted into the Nurse Candidate Program I just wore a simple black dress and heels. But it's your commissioning and therefore your day, you can do it and dress for it however you like.

You've still got 3 weeks and some change which is more than enough time to finish up your studies. Just don't forget to take breaks and find some time for yourself to relax. Best of luck!!

Excellent! I can't wait to get there and check it out for myself. I've long been told to take the redline to the hospital by nurses who work up there....so tragic what happened.

I took my test yesterday and the computer stopped at 75 questions. I had so many SATA, priority, infection control, one drug calc, delegation, and meds. It was all in 2 hours. I used Kaplan to prepare and I found a couple of the questions on NCLEX very similar to a couple of questions I studied on Kaplan. I found the format to be EXACTLY like Kaplan. I read each question twice and each answer twice. If I didnt know the answer, I used the decision tree that Kaplan taught me and said a prayer to God to help me pick the best answer. I had alot of common meds, but there were a few I had never heard of.

I left with mixed feelings, because I thought Kaplan was harder than NCLEX and there were times I could of sworn I was doing bad, because I kept getting what they consider "easy" questions, with a SATA every 4th or 5th question. Then when it was over, I was thinking no way some of those questions were that easy, so that means I failed. I got so sick to my stomach. I became nauseous at the thought of having to take that test again.

According to the "trick", I passed. But I do not get my official quick results until tomorrow, so we shall see.

Good luck to all!

took my test Tuesday passed with 75 questions.....felt confident and was pretty happy with how everything went ..yes did feel stressed until i saw my name with the initials RN beside it........started my job and i am soooo happy.......did i mention this is a dream job that took until i was 52 years old to accomplish!! so all who wonder if they can do this in their fifties..........I DID!!!

questions were 2 pharm, no math, all priority, delegation, and maybe two maternity and three psych......................good luck to all who have not taken the test yet.......my advice do not stop studying.......i did 300-400 questions a day reviewed pharmacology daily........what books i used a variety between school books and nclex reviews.....I believe my main help was that our school required us to use the ATI and that really got you used to doing questions on a daily basis.

any questions feel free to ask........wow an RN now......wow....whooopppeeeeeeee
