July 2009 NCLEX Support Group - page 17

I didn't see a July 09 support group thread up, so I thought I'd get it started. I'm taking the NCLEX-RN July 3rd for the first (and hopefully only) time. I figured I'd get it done before the... Read More

    Wanted to let everyone know I tested on July 8 and did the Pearson vue trick. Got the pop up and found out I passed! I start my job as an ICU RN on August 3. I am also part of the New Grad Residency program. Glory be to God! I couldnt have done it without Him.

    Good luck to all the July test takers!

    I took mine the first time 5/4/09. I failed with 75 questions. I left there so anxious I walked a mile before getting in my car. I did not remember anything that I answered and FAIL.:angryfire. I just took the test again and got 75 questions!:angryfire . I had 13-17 SATA, 4-5 infection control. Alot of delegating and prioritizing. I am driving myself crazy. I should find out the results any day now. In Ohio it is a 24-48hours wait. I used a Prior, delegation book did Kaplan nclex review book, and Saunders review book 5 to 10 questions in each section. Any advice before I take again. Which I am hopeful I do not have to do.

    hey! you passed this time!!! be confident and relax! find something do to take your mine off the test. i know the feeling when i failed the first time. I think you did all you can do is far as questions and reviews. do alot of questions and looking at the rationales and also going over the wrong one looking up in your text book helps. i am also using the priorization and delegation book right now. which is helping me as well. Just relax right now and do something fun. I am confident that you passed right now if thats not so its not over you can still take it again. have you tried the pearsonvue trick? people are saying it work. i take my test on august 5, i am going to be so ready and confident.

    Jasminerain, I am also testing tomorrow at 12:15PM. When I found an afternoon test time I took it immediately. 8AM, I am not fully awake at all, even if I get 10 hours of sleep. Anyway, try to relax today, maybe go for a walk, watch a funny movie, etc. Good luck tomorrow, I will keep you in my prayers!

    I take the NCLEX next week and after reading the messages from everyone that took it already, I couldn't be more nervous. I have been chained to my laptop and textbooks for the last... come to think of it I can't remember how long. Anyways, I just need it to be over so I can enjoy my summer and maybe have a better shot at getting a job. Pray for me allnurses and I will pray 4 u.

    Wow! I know how all of you soon to be test takers feel. I take my test on july 16th at 8am. I have been so super nervous. One thing that has been working to help me calm my anxiety is to study when I am feeling that anxious.

    I can't wait until I get the test done and over with. I have a hard time sleeping, with lab values running through my head. Hardly can eat anything, because I feel sick to my stomach.

    Hoping I pass the first time I take it, I really don't want to have to study for nclex again. I have been studying for the last month every day for 3-4 hours a day.

    I too can not afford kaplan. I have been doing a lot of praying and am trying to put it in god's hands.

    I wish you all luck! (wish me luck too!)

    starz6666... good luck to you.. i picked the 8 am because i'm a morning person.. i do the test best in the morning.. i tried to stay calm.. but the stuff keeps poping up in my head like the lab values and s/s. i think i will hit a book for a little bit... maybe i should just go rent something funny to watch.. anyway.. it will be over soon for us.. good luck to you and me and everyone else that will be taking nclex soon.. i keep you guys update about my experience and my result later...
