Taking my NCLEX tomorrow... any last min advise?

  1. I'm taking my NCLEX for the 2nd time tomorrow... When I first took it I only used U-world and up till now I studied using both HURST and U-WORLD.. scored 80/125, 66/125, 69/125 on Qreview and in the 78 percentile in U-world..
    Do you think I stand a chance? Any last minute advise?
    Is going over Hurst videos night before a good idea?

    Do whatever you need to do to ease your anxiety, but don't stay up late. I went to bed early, set a couple of alarms, made sure everything was ready for the morning (breakfast, snack, etc.), and then got a good night's sleep! I did not do any studying the day before, it would have been pointless.

    If you want to look at something to review look at the strategies in Hurst. Then nothing at all after that. You should be well prepared being that you did both Hurst and UWorld. I passed my NCLEX PN on the third try using only Hurst. And my scores for the QReview Simulators were 59/125, 61/125, 80/125 and 60/125. I went in test day being confident and with a bit of anxiety that I can do this. Don't stay up late tonight. Get a good nights rest, set your alarms, get what you need ready tonight so that way you won't frantically do it in the morning. Then tomorrow wake up relaxed, eat a nice breakfast and be in the positive mindset that you will do this.

    Well i didn't study at all the day before my exam. Take a break. Get a massage. Watch a movie. Anything to just not think about the exam. Breathe! You could do this and you will pass! how did you do

    Congratulations mic_imai. You're welcome. If I had passed the first attempt I wouldn't have been able to share my journey and inspire others.
