Im about to take the nclex in less than a week.

  1. Does anyone have any advice to give me? I could use all that you can give. I am so nervous. I am trying to study and there are so many high points that I think that I should refresh on but how can I do it. Dont get me wrong, I have been but its top of the line now. And the part that scares me the most is the check all that apply questions that i hear are on there because that makes me second guess my answers and I am not good at that. Please help..

    I just took mine 2 weeks ago, I had 4 select all that apply, 3 math calculations, and several prioritizing after taking the nclex and passing it at 85 questions i felt everything i had studied wasn't on there. If you remember the diseases and s/s of the them thats a plus, know how to do dosages, and go with your gut you will be fine. I felt for sure that I failed it and I didn't. Remember 25 questions are not counted, they are just test questions to see if they can use them at another time. Good Luck you ll do fine!!

    I took mine this past Friday and believe me I am a lousy test taker. Check all that apply are my WORST. I had a ton of those. I also had about 10 Pharm questions plus questions on heart disease. I had a lot of people praying for me. I actually cried on my way to the test I was soooo stressed...but I passed on 85 questions. Do as many practice questions as you can. I really think that taught me how to eliminate wrong answers first. I know what you are me. The day before the test I think I studied like 6 hours. I had no peds questions..but every test is different. I will say a prayer for you.
