Passing the NCLEX in 75 Questions (first try)


Hello everyone!

I graduated from nursing school on May 9th 2015 and I tested for my NCLEX yesterday June 15th 2015! I paid for the Kaplan review course which i felt was not worth 400.00 ! If I could do it all over I would just purchase the Qbank. I found the hursts video online and watched each video twice, which really helped me with content ! I love Aunt Marlene ! I also purchased the NCLEX Mastery App which I used pretty much everyday for questions. I also used the 30-day free trial for (the world's best kept secret!!) Make sure to get it !!! It's just like the NCLEX. I used LaCharity Prioritization Delegation and assignment 3rd edition for only 20.00 which was great as well! I studied about 6 hours each day! As far as my exam I had about around 25 SATA, 8 medication questions, 1 EKG, 1 math questions, 1 hot spots, 3 "put this procedure in order type questions." At question number 74 I started to freak out and began to pray to God asking him to cover me through the rest of the exam. After question number 75 my exam shut off and I almost lost it. I felt like I hadn't proved that I was a competent nurse yet ! Right when I got home I fell to my knees and prayed again ! Waiting for my results had to be the worse part ! I didn't want to talk to anyone and I could barely sleep!! The next morning I prayed again called the VA Board of nursing and typed in my SSN, and next thing I heard was my name and "active registered nurse" behind it ! I was too thrilled, and began to thank God for everything ! I really could not have done it with out my Lord and savior !!! I'm so happy to finally be a registered nurse! If you put your mind to it, YOU WILL PASS ON THE FIRST TIME !!!!
