hey everyone !
I'm an American citizen, studied nursing abroad -in Israel.
RN B.S with 1.5 year experience. I'll be moving from Israel to the U.S.A this coming September.
I have to take the NCLEX in order to practice in the states. My questions:
1) What should I pack with me in order to study for the exam? should I bring all of my notes? books? Brunner? if so it's a lot of weight - 4 years worth, please let me know what's most important for me to bring? or just buy the study guides once i'll arrive? and if so will it just be enough the guides without my notes/folders?
2) How long is the average study for the the exam?
please.... fill me in. I would love to read your suggestions. :balloons:
I would forget the Nursing books right now and go out and buy some NCLEX review books. The most popular are Kaplan series, NCLEX 3000, and Saunders, etc. They are available through www.kaplannursing.com and www.amazon.com to name a few. Also there are many off of www.ebay.com for cheaper. Kaplan offers several different things like classroom courses, online, and other review stuff, and they have a section for international nurses as well. The NCLEX is more about Critical Thinking than content based questions to see if you are a compentent nurse. Good Luck! :)
