I am trying to prepare for taking the NCLEX after being out of nursing for 8 years. The state of Ct requires me to retake the board in order to reinstate my license. I have been working very hard. I took a refresher course and then the online Hurst Review as well as study from the LaCharity Workbook. Does anyone have an opinion if the questions on boards are as hard as the case study questions that are in the book? It's mostly the SATA's that give me the most problem. but I find the questions from LaCharity much more difficult than Hurst Review. I am trying to master this book, but it is very challenging. Do I need to just focus on LaCharity and master the complex questions? Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!
