Making progress...

  1. I am so proud of myself. After many months of struggling with disappointment and defeat over not passing my RN boards, I am making a lot of progress. I completed the entire Saunder's comprehensive review, since I have been out of school for about 2 years, I am reviewing flashcards I made along the way, and I am better understanding quetions and answers/rationales from internet sites and books. Today was the first day after a review session that I actually felt like I could sit for that exam and pass with flying colors! This motiates me to continue tomorrow! :wink2:

    Journnee, I feel you on this one. I failed boards in July 06. What I did different this time was I too studied the whole Saunder's comprehensive book for content and did all the questions in there. Then I went to get the Saunder's Q&A book (3rd edition). I did the whole book and went over it again. In that book it came along w/a CD. There is a "content review" that tested you on all the system. I did it all. The CD had 5000 questions. Each day I would do one section at a time. Sometimes I would do 2 section but it gets tiring. Along w/the questions I did, I had my notebook which I would write notes. After finishing all that, I went over my notes for two days. Well I took NCLEX this last Monday and found out that I passed today. The funniest thing is that when I sat for boards, I thought it was easy. I mean there were times when it got hard but not as bad as the first time around. I thought it was easy to the point where I thought I failed. Anyhow, best luck and continue to study cuz at the end, it is truly rewarding!!!!!!

    You're doing excellent and you have a great attitude about it. I can relate to nursing28, I thought I failed (3rd time) because the questions seemed too easy (even though I had all 265). Don't give up we all have faith in you at!
