NCLEX RN (I took my boards TODAY)

Posted

Hi,

Just home now, I took my boards and I stopped at 75, I am very certain I passed, hope I am right but to me it wasnt that bad, I know tommorro I probably will be second guessing myself, but for now I think I passed I had alot of SATA questions and even them I now I was getting most right, I think. Gosh all this schooling for one test. I dont know what to do with all these books all around my house, of course I will have a nice library one day.

Stacy,

I took my last week and passed (I stopped at 75). I also had a bunch of SATA type questions.

I'm sure you did great. I"ll keep my fingers crossed for you!! ;)

Best,

Diane

Thank you all for answering and for the support.

I will let you all know on Thursday if I did actually pass. Today is just the long wait.....

Select all that apply

I passed and I guess I thought I would but to see my name on the OBN's website this morning is quite amazing!

Now I guess its on to the real world of actual nursing.

And now I can get insurance (medical for myself) because I will be working full time...I have never had insurance on my own and I am 38. I really am happy, God is Great, thanks to God and to my school for if it wasnt for God I never would have gotten through school and if it wasnt for my school I never could have passed because they have taught me what I needed to know.

Stacy,

Congrats to you. I am very happy that you will move on with your life and fulfill all your dreams.

Stacy would you share what books helped you prepare for NCLEX RN ?

Also how long did you study for?

Thanks,

Rey

SATA were the questions challenging or just basic med surg knowledge?what did you studt to mster SATA

You know I got my ATT letter on 5-20-09 and I checked the dates and the first available was 5-26-09 and I thought that is way too early and I was scared but I realized that I was not gonna know any more now than I would a month from now. Though I did study questions about 100 a day for the days between the 20th and my test day. I studied ATI that my school had set up Virtual ati and the 2 week class is still going on I only did 8 days of it and mainly focused on the med surg part, I dont hink that is what helped me. I also had a kaplan book that I bought for 30.00 it was one to learn strategies, though I dont think thats what did it either.

I feel that what you were taught in school is what helps, you either know it or you dont...the NCLEX RN is not hard, its actually much easier than any school test I had anyways...yes there is alot of anticipation and stress in wondering and waiting and seeing if you will pass but I feel you know the common sense material or you dont its that simple. Others might disagree with me but thats the way I feel.

Thanks for sharing your impression of the NCLEX RN. Congrats on passing.
