Need motivator for NCLEX

  1. i have to admit, studying for the nclex is not very fun. i am not very motivated for some reason. when i think about the test, i get nervous and find myself putting it off. i end up doing other things, knowing that i will suffer the consequences later. i am getting tired of this. is anyone else going through this? i feel sort of silly.

    If you have a friend who is a nurse maybe you could get them to show you one of their paychecks. That should work.

    I am going through the exact same thing! I am having a really hard time getting motivated to study and feel like no one understands.

    I'm supposed to be studying right now but I'm here posting instead. :uhoh21:

    I also don't feel motivated to study but I've been forcing myself. The thing is since I really don't want to study I am moving at a snails pace. I should have covered triple the material I have covered so far. It's really hard though because when I finally get firm with myself and start to study I fall asleep while I'm reading or answering questions!

    i have to take my nclex next august. i am kind of anxious too. but i think it's a good idea to look at one of your friend's paycheck. but more than that, make a study plan ( med surge, OB, PEDs....) and stick to it. study nclex type questions. hope it helps

    I myself was having a hard time getting motivated to study for my nclex, graduated 12/08 and began working as a GPN right away. I got comfortable in my position and everytime I attempted to study I just got distracted not to mention being super busy working full time. Everytime it got closer to my test date I would reschedule to give myself enough time. Finally I knew I had to get it over with scheduled the test for the last time 4/3 stuck to that date took it and passed with the minimun questions. Then I thought I should have taken it sooner. You will do fine be confident, study areas of weakness, and just go for it!

    most of my friends are NCLEX-RN passers and it was the motivation factor for me since I envy them, I work hard for my exam
