NCLEX Preparedness


Did any of you who took boards recently actually feel prepared? Or did you go into it feeling like there was still so much stuff you needed to learn?

I studied for literally weeks, and still went in nervous! After about 90 questions, my test shut off. I left teary and feeling like I failed, and that nursing school had done me no good whatsoever to prepare me. It's normal to feel that way! Don't let it consume you. That being said, if you feel as if you haven't reviewed enough (i.e. low scores on practice exams, etc) try to stay focused on the end prize! I passed and I'm sure you will too. Remember, 85% of candidates pass on the first try. You just need to prove that you are an entry-level, safe nurse. Goodluck!
