I am writing my NCLEX on July 10th and I am new graduate from Ryerson University. I was wondering if anyone has any tips for writing and passing the NCLEX???

I am using the Drexel's University's 5 day online review and using the Thomson NCLEX-RN review book.

Any tips/words of wisdom will be greatly appreciated!!!

There are a bunch of similar threads here. And there is a forum for NCLEX discussion too.

All I Can Say Is To Study Your Lab Values, And The Medications Even Though You Haven't Heard It Before Try To Make Sense Of It. I Did My Oon The 14 June For The Third Time And I Have Passed. Study Your Note Book Well. I Don't Think You Will Have A Problem Because You Are New Grad. AS For ME, I Graduated In 2003 So It Was Hard For Me Because I Have To Think As A New Grad And It Was Hard For Me.

Good Luck

I am Canadian but studied in the US and graduated in 2006. I thought the Kaplan NCLEX Review was helpful. You may not have time to seek that one out. You should be fine...but just remember with NCLEX the MOST important thing is not to panic, and do REALLY WELL in the first 20-30 questions. The only people I have personally known that have failed have had bad test anxiety issues. It is not that bad and certainly in some ways easier with the shortened format than the long grueling exam in Canada that I believe is 8 hours long but the format is completely different from what I have heard. I still am hoping to someday before too long do the exam in Canada too but it is much more difficult as you have only 3 exam write dates per year. I did my LPN exam in Canada and I must say I much prefer the US testing. I think it adequately assesses competency and you don't have the horrible waiting for your results since you only have 48 hours of agony. Good luck to you!!! Where are you planning to work? Are you going to get your TN? You will likely need to do Visascreen first which you need NCLEX passed before it is complete. It is a lot of hoops to jump through but the opportunities are great. I am in Arizona and just love it!!!!
