  1. I am a new ADN grad with aspirations of becoming an acute care NP someday. Having just started in this ED I hate to start taking days off for school. I also hate to lose the income. However, I do not want to wait to get my BSN. Some people in the ED have done WGU or some other online course. If I knew I was going to stop at BSN that is what I would do for sure. I really want to practice someday though and am worried that not getting my BSN from a traditional four year might stand in my way. Does anybody have any advice or thought on this. Anybody here have their NP license with an online BSN degree? Thanks

    failed NCLEX in 75 questions despite Uworlds blessing

    Okami, I think ramping up the number of questions I do a day will be important. After I had finished all of the questions in my UWorld account I dropped way down. I was doing only maybe 25-50 per day on average because I started to remember the answers. What I should have done is to search out more questions to maintain the high volume. I think I may have also placed to much importance on getting the questions right. What I mean by that is that if I would get a question right I would feel like I was done with it. I may not have fully understood the pathophysiology or the order of interventions or what have you as to why it was correct. I would just remember from class or some other resource and move on. I would focus on rationales if I got something wrong but not so much if I got it right. Looking back on it, this was obviously a big mistake. I have never heard of the NCLEX exam decision tree. I will be looking for that. Thanks for that tip. Thank you

    hopetopass, I am climbing out of it. I won't lie, the first 12hours or so were pretty rough. Thank you!

    Ben Ouch! Brutal honesty! As much as I don't want to admit it, you might be right. Well, I failed, so theirs the evidence. I hear what you are saying. It does sound as though I am blaming Uworld. That is not what I mean to convey. I own this. This has been a bitter pill to swallow and I am still trying to get it down but I know that I failed the NCLEX, not UWorld. I do fully plan on continuing to use UWorld. The one take away that I would advise to anyone, and I think this is my main point related to UWorld, is to not let the fact that UWorld says you have a high likelyhood of passing make you complacent. I will be taking a second look at how I have used it up until now. I will report back on any areas where I may have not used the resource to the best benefit. I also welcome any one else that has advice on this to chime in here if they wish. Any (constructive) advice Ben?

  6. I am completely dumbstruck. I failed...I FAILED. How did this happen? I studied my arse off for a month before I took it. I did all of the almost two thousand questions in Uworld. My Uworld assessment said I had a "very high probability of passing". My scores on individual tests were regularly above the average test taker. I studied my Saunders book. I was always above average on my class tests. Then I fail in 75 questions on the actual exam...what the ****? Now I have to wait 45 days. Tomorrow I have to tell the ED to give the job they have waiting for me to someone else because I failed the NCLEX. I am seriously going through some DABDA right now y'all. I just had to vent to those who might understand.
