I am so tired of studying. I feel like my mind is at an overload and I test soon, so now all I do is questions and little bit of content overview. Am I going insane?

No you are not.... I'm feeling the same way.

Good luck.

No, you are not going insane. Take a few days off from studying. Honestly, it does wonders for the brain. Come back to your studying with a fresh mind.

If you are not an RN yet, you need to change your username. Per the terms of service, you can not use a tile (LPN,RN, Nurse, MD etc) you have not earned as part of your username.

When you pass NCLEX RN then you can use the title.

Im sorry this bothered u. It was motivation for me, nothing to be offended by. It's changed. Have a good day ;)

Good luck SaffSoontobeRN, i felt the exact same way the week of my nclex test. The day before my test, I tried to study, but couldn't concentrate, I did about 50 questions, then the morning of I slept in (test was at 2pm) and watched "My big fat greek wedding", drove to get lunch and walked around the parking lot of the test center for about 15-20 mins to get my blood pumping and took my test. My comp shut off at 75 questions and this morning I saw my name on the BRN! You've got this!

It is illegal in most states to identify yourself as a nurse when you are not a nurse. It "bothers" most of the nurses on AN and is on the terms of service that you agreed to when you signed up. When you pass Nclex the joy you will feel the first time you sign RN behind your name will mean more because you will have earned it. Stay focused, good luck on test day.

you're not going insane, just do your best to get a full 8 hours the night before, have a good breakfast, have a good BM, and remember to breathe during your test. Good luck!

Thank you so much, I appreciate it!

When you reflect back on all the hard work and effort it took to earn those two little letters you will be (and should be) proud of yourself and your accomplishments.

You also might notice that if some TV-watching wannabe* tries to float those letters behind their name or calls themselves Nurse without the educational background you struggled through, you might be a little bothered, too.

When are you testing? I know the feeling. I'm so stressed, breaking out, exhausted, yada yada.

One would only have to guess that you are a "sailor" then. How dare you have a motivational screen name on a nursing blog site. Good luck on your test.

You are 100% right! Struggles only equal success and I won't give up! This is my passion and what I went to nursing school for and received my bachelors ! Thanks for the encouragement :up:

My apologies, I'm new to this and this was my first post. I graduated in May with my BSN, this is my THIRD TIME taking this test. I used Kaplan, did everything I was supposed to and got above a 65% on the readiness, and failed. I just didn't feel 100% and I knew something was off so I went for the virtual ati that my school had for free, and did content only, few questions that were content based only not application and analysis. So when I took it that time, my scores were lower from not practicing questions. Now, I took Hurst....omg let me tell ya...AMAZINGGGGGG:yeah: I like had an epiphany or something bc my scores doubled in Kaplan when I redid the Qbank and I was so happy. So now I'm currently review some contents in Saunders and doing questions from either Kaplan and hurst and my scores are sooooo much better! I'm scared and excited all in one but I have a good feeling. All in all, I pray all day everyday for guidance, understanding, wisdom, and strength, I know God has a plan for me and I will pass this DEMON! Lol

I test next week by the way lol sorry left that out :)

I like your name just the way it is. It says " soon to be RN" I see nothing wrong with that. At any rate I hope you rock the NCLEX! The day before my test I don't study or do any practice questions. I went shopping to ease my mind lol. Make sure you get s good nights rest the night before and again good luck!
