    Yeah I havent study too much as well for the past two days...yesterday I was planning to study like all day but the internet line was down so I was doing Saunders CD-content area pharmacology (mostly I learned chemo drugs) and today my plan is to finish health promotion (right now I'm doing number 47) and take a post test as well as 2 Qbank tests....I'm still waiting for my authorization test,I pray to God I can still enroll sometime in July.
    What kind of nurse you want to be?How is your job searching??????Are you looking before passing the NCLEX?

    Yea I lose internet a lot out where I live. Thats good that you are reviewing chemo drugs, we didnt go over any of them in school so that is something i should take a look at. Well I started looking at jobs in November and got hired in January at the University of Maryland Medical Center. I'm starting out on a Medical/Infectious Disease floor so it should be exciting. I start my job sometime in August.

    Ok I registered for August 12...the reason I didnt want to register for July is that I would have to drive to a different state and I want to take additional time to prepare for the NCLEX

    I think I will order the NCBSN since it seems to be getting positive reviews. I've been using the Saunder's book which has been great and the NCLEX 4000. So hopefully NCBSN would be helpful as well!

    Five weeks till graduation on August 7th, Hurray. I have purchased the NCSBN online review but I still feel I need more review quizzes/exams in specific areas to know where I need do better. I prefer online study sites any suggestions? What is Pearson Vue study site and others? I plan to study each day an hour or two up until I take the NCLEX. THX

    How are the q's? Do you find them challenging? I am thinking about buying the NCSBN review only for the q's b/c I only have about 4 wks until my NCLEX. I am almost done with all my other review books and just want some more q's. Do you think it's worth it and do you think I have enough time to complete all the q's? Thanks!!!!
