When reviewing, I used the notes that I've had from nursing school, but I further split the information and focused on topics that were very likely to appear on the NCLEX. So for example:
General Nursing Tables: VS, Therapeutic drug levels, Burns Rule of 9's, Lab values (Electrolytes, Blood, Glucose, Specific grav., etc.), different fluids (examples of them and osmotic effects), Electrolyte (what foods are in, hypo effects/hyper effects), Determining Respiratory/Metabolic Acidosis/Alkalosis, Conversions, Infection control (Contact, Droplet, Airborne; what PPE to wear for each, and Mnemonics for the diseases of each), antidotes for toxic drug levels (Ex: Vitamin K for Warfarin)
Adult Health: Integumentary, Cardio, etc. With each system, I focused on the most commonly used diseases/conditions on the NCLEX, and studied signs and symptoms, interventions, and some meds
***Feel free to message me if you'd like me to list the exact diseases I've studied/what about them***
In regards to using uWorld, how did you remember your notes? I know you mentioned that you re-wrote them, but did you find yourself writing it word for word? If so, I would suggest trying to paraphrase them and explaining to yourself aloud the entire process. This may help you better remember and may help you measure how well you know the topic by noticing how easy it is for you to paraphrase it.
What would you say you're struggling the most with when reviewing/answering questions?
Also, I understand how it can be really challenging to work through this, especially since you've taken it before. It's discouraging to not pass the first time, but now, you're equipped with more experience in taking the exam and what to expect. Definitely take breaks when you need them to help motivate yourself; I've had multiple moments when I've cried and felt that I couldn't do it -- I felt that I didn't know anything. One of my biggest motivators was telling myself that with each topic I study and understand, the better I will be able to do, and that I am better than I was prior to that topic. I also reached out to my significant other to help ground me when I questioned myself with negative "what-if's."
Tap into how you're motivated: goal-oriented/task-oriented, and that may help. I love writing lists and manually crossing out what I've done because I feel accomplished, which helped me keep going.
You're able to do this -- it's a matter of re-evaluating and adapting your approach, utilizing your source of motivation, and remembering to take at least 20 minutes for yourself (whether it's scrolling on your phone, or watching a quick show). It's alright to take that breath.
Please let me know if I can help you more in any way.
