Congratulations on finishing nursing school. That's already a huge accomplishment. I took the NCLEX-PN in California and passed on the first try with 85 questions. Walking out of there I honestly thought I failed, but after six weeks of waiting... I passed. I tried the PVT also and it worked for me. :D

I studied for six weeks. I did questions on the NCLEX-PN 3000 - http://legacy.southeast.kctcs.edu/nc...8D5C2F791FDB6F. I focused mainly on doing questions. Don't worry too much about your score, just concentrate on understanding the rationale. Know infection control like the back of your hand. The mnemonics posted on this site helped a lot. Know which patient can room with which, whether you should keep the door opened or closed, etc. Memorize your lab values, conversions and dosage calculations, and know the normal vital signs of infants, children, adults, and elderly. Prayer helped a lot for me. Nothing is impossible without Him as long as you believe!

Also remember that the exam is different for everyone. I know people that had a lot of peds and meds, while some had a lot of labs, and others had a lot of math. I had no math and infection control seemed like my entire exam!

Most importantly, believe in yourself. You can do this and you will pass!! :up:

My NCLEX prep wasn't that complicated---I studied my textbooks, my ATI review books, and bought a couple of NCLEX review books (Lippincott, Saunder's, Mosby). I did literally thousands of questions and studied intensely as I was DETERMINED to pass this beast! Luckily, I did, with 85 questions. Best of luck!!!

Well, I failed RN school by 1 point, but I did get far enough to challenge the LPN boards and will go through the LPN to RN career mobility program next summer. I too am looking for sites to practice from. I have a Kaplan book (2010-2011) that I just got today. There are some good tips, but I want more content and plan to get a Saunders book.

Does anyone know of any free sites that offer NCLEX style questions? I have books to go through, but like i said, it's all RN stuff and from what I understand, LPN's don't go as deep as RN's. I would really appreciate some help myself. And prayer too, will be the only way that I get through this!
