July 2009 NCLEX Support Group - page 14

    Hi everyone! I'm new to this site. I've been coming here and reading comments from all the members on different topics. I finally decided to register today. The reason? I am a July test taker!! My test is scheduled for July 17th. I am sooo nervous. I've been trying to suppress it all this time. Since I had a few weeks until my test, I wasn't as anxious, knowing I still had a lot of time to study things that I may have trouble with. Now that test day is 10 days away..I'm starting to feel the anxiety.

    I am just so nervous. But I don't want to let it get to me because I want to stay positive. But the past couple days, I've been getting 58-60% on my kaplan qbank questions! before i would get high 60's or even 70s!! so that's stressing me out.

    good luck to all the fellow July test-takers. =]

    my prayers are with everyone getting ready for this month and august. i schedule my test today its august 5 so wishing that i could take it the end of this month but they had nothing open. maybe this is a sign to continue to practice taking test and test taking skills and work on weak areas. the month will go by so quick so i better continue to work and take advangtage of my time. i feel pretty confident with the test and been getting high and low seventies on practice test. please pray for me that i will continue to grind the rest of this month and stay confident. i am so ready to take it but i have to be patient. praying for everyone who is taking it and retaking it all over.

    I studied a LITTLE this morning, but mostly just lab values, flash cards for meds, etc. I got too nervous and had to study! Good luck to you on the 21st. Keep us posted!

    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.
