I heard the TX BON updates the website on Tuesdays and Thursdays. So I would think your license will be posted today or Thursday.
Yes, that's the one!!!
Does "when in doubt pick C" ever work in anyones favor?
Thanks. I am right around 300 applications in Dallas. Thanks for the encouragement.
Google NCLEX 3500. There is a link to a community college NCLEX 3500. There are hundreds of SATA questions. I feel they really helped me prepare.
I did 200 questions a day. It was very time consuming but worth it.
Hi, thanks alum
Sorry I forgot to mention it, I gave NCLEX once last year but I didn't pass. That time I took Kaplan live review course, and this year I took Hurst live review course. I have Saunders 4th edition, Kaplan, Lippincott, PDA book. But I don't know how I will start. From where I will start my study? Please tell me, it's very difficult for me.
Can anyone give me advice? All are saying that in April the NCLEX-RN format iwll change. I want to give NCLEX but I haven't any preparation. So according to you guys, shall I start preparation and give my exam before April or shall I wait until May or JUne? I did my nursing in 2005. Or two months is enough to study? Please tell me.
I want to share my experience with others. I could not afford $400-$500 on a review course. I used the Hurst review book ($50) - great for content summaries. Lippincotts "NCLEX Made Incredibly Easy" and Hesi's "NCLEX Review" (bought both early on during nursing school). I also used an online link for "Nursing 3500." Our school held a HESI 3 day review and I used that book too. I also used the Lippincotts iPhone apps (each have about 1000 free questions). There is also a free mini Kaplan Q-bank.
I did 200 questions a day for about 10 days before the test. Before that I read the Hurst book. I would suggest doing things in tutor mode - bc if you do the test mood, it takes twice as long. You then have to go back and read everything a second time.
I did not study all night before the end of the test. I took it easy. I didn't study the day of either. I scheduled my exam for late in the afternoon so that I wouldn't stress about waking up early. I could also take a nap if I needed to.
Eat a big meal packed with protein! I ate a burrito with eggs, sausage, and cheese. I had a vitamin water and a coffee.
I did the Pearson Vue Trick and it worked!
Happy studying. Don't cheat yourself, put he work in and rest later! Most importantly, believe in yourself and have confidence!
if i have a bad gpa is lpn the way to go?
ADN program at Brookhaven College!!! Whoot whoot!!!
Apply to both and go where you get accepted.
You can take it at MVC and then take it at BHC. BHC will only count the exam taken there. So you are fine. I had that same question when I was applying at El Centro. Call the nursing office and they will confirm.
I was wondering, I have all my BSRN pre reqs for Texas Womans, but I took most of them at 3 different community colleges. Can the university's make me retake classes to get my BSRN from them once I get my RN from Brookhaven?
I have looked again at TTU. , TWU, and UTT. I want to do leadership and use my MBA eventually. I hope to do clinical nursing for about five years only.
