Hey all, I graduated in May with my ADN and took NCLEX and got the dreaded 265 and FAILED! I am taking it Monday and I did the Hurst Review earlier this week. Just wanted some info and insight on the review for those that have taken NCLEX already. :nailbiting:

What did your performance report view say?

To add: start to understand the four concepts of becoming a competent, entry-level nurse:

1. Safe, effective care;

2.Health promotion;

3.Physiological Integrity;

4.Psychosocial integrity

Will determine WHAT the question is asking you; the question may be Respiratory related-but is it a Health Promotion or a Safety, or a Physiological or a Psychosocial one? Would you know the difference and choose the BEST answer?

Once one understands the concepts of NCLEX, they can answer the questions successfully.

It said I was near passing in all but pharm. I got below on it. I think i was really letting the test get the best of me.

I couldn't sleep the night before also so my anxiety level was way high.

What steps have you included in correcting before you take this test; perhaps schedule the test in the afternoon to prevent lack of sleep?

Have you studied pharm by reviewing with flash cards, questions and reviewing rationales?

Yes, before I only studied minimally and didn't do a review course. I am still taking it at 8 but I changed my sleeping habits the last two weeks so that I can sleep adequately. I also did the hurst review which i felt helped a lot and i have studied medications

Again, have you reviewed rationales to the questions that you gotten incorrect; do you understand the difference in a Health Promotion vs a Psychosocial question?

Have you figured out which questions are your current weakness?

Yes. Those questions have rationales. I read all of them. I know the differences between the two, I have issues with some health promotion at times and still a little rusty with safety precaution stuff
