NCLEX Takers Support Thread - page 46

If you will be taking NCLEX and would like to be prayed for, can we start a fourm for this. I know that some folks are not into prayer and I don't want to offend anyone, but I sure need it!... Read More

    I'm taking the test on Monday and feel so overwhelmed. My house flooded completely leaving me homeless (my mom has taken my family in, thank heaven!!) and I have to put my daughter's wedding on in two weeks. I just got a job that is contingent on my passing and I am running around with my head cut off trying to keep everything going in the right direction. I'm grateful for my friends and family that are helping out, but I HAVE to pass this test or I am out a job I really need. Anyone's prayers for my situation would be so appreciated, and you have my thoughts and prayers for all of you as well. This thing is challenging even in the best of circumstances....Thanks so much in advance:heartbeat

    hello, First thing Pray a sincere prayer if you studied then you should be ready, you have to think positive at all times.Since you have 2 days left pace yourself in studying don't overwhelm yourself, relax, go to an area that you can be along for prayer and wisdom to do what you need to do for your family, I hope that things work out in your favor and you get the job.If you are running around with your head cut off How could you be any help to anyone? so by that I mean think of self, take care of you first, because if you dont ,who gonna do your daughter wedding? I will pray for strenght 4 you

    Julie,
    Congrats on passing the NCLEX. I took the NCLEX-RN a couple of months ago and did not pass. I had 265 ?'s. This time I have been doing the Kaplan Online review. I was wondering how you studied for your NCLEX?

    Robenz07,

    I'm sorry that happened to you. The morning I took my test I talked to someone else who told me the exact same thing happened to her a couple months ago. Even the 265 questions. On Thursday our tests shut down after the same amount of time. She had done quite a few more questions than I had, but said she felt much better about this one because she really slowed down and made sure she understood what each question was asking before attempting to answer.

    As for me, I read the Kaplan strategies book a few times and practiced using the strategies while answering 50-100 questions a day from Saunders Comprehensive and sometimes Lippincot's Review for NCLEX-PN. I studied both the books and cds. In the last week or so I also reviewed Mosby's Review Cards after a friend gave them to me. I like them because they were more portable and easy to use while on the treadmill, but I don't think they were necessary.

    When ever I found myself burned out and answering without giving a lot of thought, and therefore bombing the questions and losing confidence, I took a break, often until the next day. I made sure to review areas that I was weak in on my predictor tests too, but I think just answering lots of questions and using the strategies helped me the most.

    I would like to join this forum. I Know that prayer can help us through this. just believe and have faith as little as a mustard seed and you will pass. I pray that God will bless us all, help us to understand the material that we study, help us to put it together, open up our knowledge and understanding on the day of testing so we could pass. My God will never bring us this far to leave us.. Just have a little faith with me. God bless us all.

    Hi..I am new here..I'm glad to have a site like this..It makes me more confident. I received my result yesterday.Unfortunately, I didn't pass. I thought it went well but I think it's still not my time.. I'm planning to take my NCLEX-RN next month or the first week of November.

    I'll start to study again tomorrow..I want to ask anyone if what am I going to do or if there are tips on studying..I hope I am going to pass my 2nd exam. I'll stand firm and have faith in HIM.

    Thanks!Please include me in your prayers and I will also include you ij my prayers as well..

    God Bless you all..

    Julie,
    Hi, I have been doing very well on the Kaplan knowledge/Comp for the question trainers. My scores for Application/analysis started out low but as I have continued to practice, practice, practice they have gone up a lot. I have 2 more trainers to do before I can take the test. I also have that strategies book that you are talking about. I read it last time. I am goign to look it over again. someone else said it helped them as well. Thank you so much for your info and please keep me in prayer to pass this NCLEX. I plan to take it in 2 weeks!
