Passed NCLEX-PN...4th time :)

Posted

I give utmost thanks to God and all the glory for my victory against my Goliath (aka nclex). I couldn't and wouldn't have gotten through this without Him.

I graduated from an LPN program, September 2013. I tested 3 times since graduation and passed on July 22nd 2015. I had a hard time in school, but received a lot of support. While in school, my mother passed away and that really had a traumatic impact on me. I am NOT your regular nursing students, and I think the program I entered gave me more than I can chew. It has one of the highest nclex passing rate in my county. Yet, I could not pass the nclex. I spent $850 on review products alone (thank God for a supportive husband). And literally felt like this was going to be my last try (since so far I had spent $600 on applying for the nclex not including B.O.N. fees).

So here's what FINALLY worked for me. A friend shared with me her Evolve-Elsevier study material (that was given to them at school). It's an online review composed of 10 modules and came with 100 questions for each module. It says its a 16 week course. The name of the review is Hesi/Saunders Online Review for NCLEX-PN examination by Linda Anne Silvestri. I kid you not, it is THE best review and surprisingly worked well for me since I had tried Hurst, this Kaplan review book on how to answer questions, Garrison Online review

Now since I was equipped with the online review, I still felt like I needed more (less is more sometimes though), so I got the Nclex-PN mastery 2015 app

My journey to becoming an LPN was not easy but I am grateful that the Lord sustained me, and didn't allow me to give up. I am now licensed because of Him. Thank you for reading.

How long did it take you to complete the Saunders online review? I have about 5 weeks before nclex, do u think this would be beneficial for me?
