    New Grad in New York

    How is your job search going? Have you tried applying for urgent care or other medical clinics? What about ambulatory clinics? Some of them are open to new grads. I am a new grad RN in NYC as well and am currently working at a dialysis center.

    I passed my NCLEX with 60 questions!

    Fingers crossed 🤞🏻. Did you check your state BON site? Sometimes they put up your license number before the Pearson results become available. Or so I’ve heard.

    I passed my NCLEX with 60 questions!

    First off, CONGRATULATIONS!! I took my NCLEX-RN this past Wednesday & also finished in 60 questions. I found out yesterday I passed! However, I felt so unprepared and as if I knew nothing! I used UWorld and did all 2,183 questions, as well as the assessment w/ a high chance of passing, but I honestly did not feel as though UWorld prepared me. The NCLEX questions were far more vague. It was helpful as far as helping me understand delegation (something I always had trouble with) and prioritization as there is much more to it then just applying ABC's. I found myself struggling at every single question during NCLEX. While doing UWorld, there were times where I'd ignore my gut feeling and go with the wrong answer bc you know... that's just what I do -___- . For NCLEX, I told myself I'd follow my gut instinct and went with the answer I personally felt was correct. This was something the instructors would always tell us in Nursing school & I'd just sit there like what the heck are they talking about?! LOL Finally understood what they meant on Wednesday bc it paid off. I'm glad to hear that you had a different experience regarding UWorld, though & that it helped you pass the exam!! =]

    NCLEX NY

    I literally found out yesterday I passed....in 60 questions?!! I could not believe it. I honestly felt as though I knew nothing which I'm seeing is the norm! LOL I wanted to keep answering questions bc I felt I had not proven myself yet. Thank you for your kind words. It meant a lot! 😊

    NCLEX NY

    Hey everyone, So I took the NCLEX-RN today. It stopped at 60 questions & I have never felt so incompetent! Very nervous....as expected. Did anyone else take their NCLEX today or sometime this/last week and awaiting results? What was your experience? I am really trying to calm my nerves. 🙍🏻‍♀️
  8. So, I am currently in my last semester and am taking pediatric nursing, maternity, along with trends (our intro to theory course, basically). I am having such a hard time with peds. We just took our Unit 2 exam today & the professor was not pleased with us. I have a feeling I failed. I studied but there were some questions regarding the developmental stages that through me off guard. I went from getting straight A's in both my classes last semester (I took advanced med surg and psych) to sitting around wondering if I even scored an 80 this time around. I am so anxious because this is my last semester and I don't want to fail. I am so close to finishing. Does anyone have any advice on how to study for peds?

    Leadership Interview- Nurse manager

    No, that is certainly not the case. I was merely asking for help. I've worked very hard to get into nursing school & stay in it, putting in countless hours of studying, writing papers, care plans, etc. 🙂 Thankfully, I was actually able to find someone (through my personal contacts) that I will be interviewing soon!! 😁 @AdminRN I would like to close this forum, please 🙂

    @cnhealy93 thank you :) I have a quick question: the fundamentals book is only needed for the 1st semester? I was thinking of renting it on Amazon just for the 1st semester.
