Nclex-RN scheduled June 23rd :o)

Hi Everyone! first I want to say that after becoming familiar with allnurses.com it really is an amazing resource for students and nurses. I'm glad to know I'm not alone in my quest to officially becoming a RN.

I graduated from nursing school with my ADN in early May 2010, and I just scheduled my NCLEX-RN for June 23, 2010. I must say my anxiety level is high :eek: I do have a strong will to study and what I am doing everyday till June 23, 2010 is material review ( we got a review book on campus), I finished the Kaplan Nclex RN 2010-2011 version book and scored 75% on the practice test cd-rom and 71% on the paper test in the back of the book..not really sure how well it will predict my outcome. I also purchased an NCLEX RN book by Davis that is aligned to the new 2010 test plan, it has over 5,000 questions and I am doing about 100-150 questions per day, as I'm doing the questions I am getting plenty of them wrong..but I feel like I am learning from my mistakes and at the same time reviewing. Anyways if anyone has any helpful tips for studying for NCLEX RN your input is very much welcomed :) I will be a nervous wreck till June 23rd and two days after till I know my official results. Thanks! :redbeathe

im takin it the 24th. Just like u said practice, practice practice. Goodluck and let us know how it goes

Thank you! & Good luck to you too! I will definitely keep the site updated.

I have a question for anyone to randomly answer. I was reviewing and read that pain management is considered a psychosocial aspect of care on the NCLEX-RN, however I just finished a question in which the answer was a nurses first intervention should be to relieve pain. Does anyone have any information on how Pain should be treated when dealing with the nclex? Thanks! :confused:

I learned that it is one of the last things you address. We learned in my NCLEX review course priority goes in this order:

1) IMMEDIATE airway, breathing, and circulation problems

2) Sudden changes in mental status or LOC

3) New onset VS changes

4) Unstable metabolic disorders (hypo- or hyperglycemia) and diagnostic test results

5) Complaints of pain (unless it is cardiac pain which then moves to 1)

Hope this helps.

Another book you may want to get is Lacharity. It is highly recommended. Pain on the Nclex is psychosocial.Good luck on your big day ! ! !

Thank you all very much! :) I will for sure let you all know my thought's post boards. Finger's tightly crossed :redbeathe

can I please have the ISBN # of this book?

thanks

Sure the ISBN is ISBN-13: 978-0803621879. I find it to be a very helpful book :) good luck!

20 more days to go before I sit for the boards. I just took a Kaplan quiz online in which all 27 questions were select all that apply and I epically bombed it :banghead: 7 out 27 questions correct, unbelievable! I've heard the nclex-rn loves to ask SATA'S..so I'm going to keep on practicing and praying for a miracle :smackingf

Any helpful advice is very much welcomed!

Good luck on the NCLEX there. I'm taking my exam on the 23rd of this month, and I'm freaking out a bit too as I know the exam has changed a bit recently. All I'm going to do is 250 practice questions each day and look over my notes and go to the college library to review their NCLEX books. I'm stressed, but I did do OK on the Hesi exit exam so I hope that's a good sign. Good luck there!

Best of luck to you too! Practice makes perfect :D let us know your thoughts after the exam.

I bought the Kaplan strategy book and got about what you did on the CD and book test. I take NCLEX in 15 hours... Ill let you know how I do and maybe that will give you ruler to measure with

I believe with your Kaplan percentages you will do fine. My computer shut off at seventy five. Many SATA..but very straightforward. Good luck!
