Practicing in Canada 33 years & writing the NCLEX


I have been out of school for 33 years. I got my Texas RN License through endorsement in 1994 but now I have to write the NCLEX. I wrote the CEN and CCRN exams in the U.S. without any problems so I wasn't too worried about the NCLEX. I'm planning to write it this Fall. I wasn't afraid until yesterday when I got the NCLEXRN Mastery App on my phone and started the questions. That scared me. It was a wake up call. Now I'm reading about all the people fresh out of school when the material is all fresh in your mind who failed here and I'm terrified!

Any Nurses out there who have been out of school for a while who wrote the NCLEX? Any suggestions? Honest to goodness, my gut is aching already from worry.

You need to think as a new grad not as someone with years of experience.
