Please ask me anything! This forum helped me tremendously while I prepared for the NCLEX and I would love to share some of my tips, tricks, and knowledge 🙂

From what I can remember I had around 21 SATA, I started tallying them because at one point I had 3 in a row and it kind of freaked me out not going to lie. Also, they figured out my weakness and I had roughly 20-30 questions regarding pediatrics and maternal newborn. I would say that a majority of the rest of the exam that I can remember after hitting 75 questions was prioritization.

I used both Kaplan and UWorld as well as other supplemental material that was floating around here!

Thank you! I took 4 weeks to prepare, I know that for myself I get what I like to call "question fatigue" so I would only allow myself 3 hours of the day to study and do approximately 75-150 questions. If I did more I would find myself getting more questions wrong since I wasn't as focused as I was in the beginning of the day.

I would say to not study anything today. Don't look at anything, just do something that will keep your mind off of it. You have done everything you possibly can and what you know now is what you know.

I personally at the end of the night right before my exam looked at a NCLEX cram sheet. I read that cram sheet 4x before going to bed and 1x more before going into the exam. You can google it!

Get a good nights rest and eat a good breakfast & don't forget to go to the bathroom before going into the exam lol

Congratulations. 🎉🍾 Are toy based in NY? If so, how are hospital jobs looking for you out here? I’m testing soon.

No I am not NY based, however I applied for several jobs a month before I took the NCLEX and I got an interview and offers at all of them. I would not be worried, however I would be considerate of when people graduate, how large the hospital is, and what you would want to do start off as a new nurse.
