Hi all-

I took the NCLEX in Dec of 2008 and failed with 199 questions. I was going to do "suzannes plan" and I got Saunders 4th edition and have been working on the review tests as per her first step but now she is not taking any new people for her plan!

I now am freaking out! I feel like I need guidance from someone as I study, because I took kaplan before and that obviously did not help!

Does anyone know of any other plans online or courses or how I can do it on my own? How long should I give myself?

Please help-I feel lost

Thanks,

Ashley

If you had never heard of Suzanne or her plan you would be studying a review book, attending live review seminars, and otherwise studying for the exam, wouldn't you? Make an appointment for the test far enough out to give you sufficient time. Study as if you had never taken the exam. You have the Saunders book, so continue to go through it answering questions and studying the rationales. If you don't feel that is enough, get questions from other resources. Answer as many questions as you can before your test date. Good luck.

Even with direction, you are the one who has to pound the material into your head. If you really need supervision to help you accomplish this, make an arrangement with a family member to work with you on your studying. Family members who do this find that they learn quite a bit about nursing in the process. Is there a former classmate who might be able to help you? You never know unless you ask.

Set yourself a time each day for study. That is what I did. I hid away in another room where I couldn't be distracted, wouldn't answer the phone and studied. I used Saunders book and CD plus learningext. I average 2 hours a day when I was working at 4 hours a day when I wasn't working. Any more then I found I wasn't retaining properly
