Here is my story. I graduated back in 2012. I was very motivated to take the exam. I used Kaplan/Saunders and failed twice! I have to admit I didn't practice enough. I didn't answer more than 1,000 questions. I mostly read and answered prob 25-50/day. I started losing my motivation, but then I realized I need to do this.
In July 2012 I had a car accident after an unexplained seizure. They did lots of lab work, eeg etc... and finally found it was epilepsy. Right now it is controlled, but i used to have 1-2/week for over a year. My driver's license was revoked for a almost 3 years! Anyway, my brain didn't have enough room to concentrate. I found a job and until this date, I'm working there (retail/warehousing; non nursing related). Not so long ago, I started re gaining motivation and contacted the BON to see if I was still registered. Fortunately yes. PA BON has unlimited retakes and no one loses their registration. I see there's a lot going on with the NCLEX (changes) and I really need to refresh my brain. A refresher course can be taking after you pass the nclex which is ridiculous, but in the meantime I have to figure out something else. Reading and reading kills my vision. Honestly I was wondering if there's a review that helps to retain, videos, ilustrations to auto recover the topics/material I need for NCLEX RN. Also, I've heard of uworld. I tried and I was impressed my critical thinking isn't terrible, but still I need a study guide in order to regain some of the knowledge. Any comments? Suggestions?
