    NCLEX/HESI highly overrated

    Glad I’m not the only one! I took it with some friends who also thought it was the hardest test they’ve taken. So then I started getting paranoid and I was like maybe I just got such easy questions that I was failing... despite feeling confident the whole time. But I was also way more diligent than most people after graduation. And I don’t mean it in a boastful way AT ALL. I just think people should know if they put in the work, the reward is there.

    NCLEX/HESI highly overrated

    Let me preface this by saying that I am not a stellar student. I got by with A's and B's and sometimes C's. When I first started taking HESI's, I was struggling. Obviously, I started getting anxiety about the exit hesi. SO I did some research and found 'yourbestgrade'. I did about 1600 practice questions and walked out with a 921. Same for NCLEX. I got a job that required me to pass first time so again, anxiety started building. So after doing more research, uworld seemed to be the consensus. I did 75q a day during my practicum and a month after. I also did the hurst review. I took my NCLEX a few days ago and CRUSHED it and knew I was crushing it during. Everything felt familiar and it seemed like the answers were just popping off the page and a lot of concepts were familiar from uworld and I knew my test would shut off at 75. and it did! I did all of the questions on uworld and after I ran out, I started redoing questions. I think doing questions kept content relevant and the questions were much easier on the actual hesi. The whole point of this post is that, hard work and discipline will pay off 10-fold. There is so much anxiety around these tests (understandably so), but if you stay diligent and practice questions, you will ace this exam. A lot of people from my program have passed as well (so far), but they all walked out saying how hard of test it was and how much it messed with their heads. I felt completely confident and would have done my study plan all over again just to know I was doing well during the test. Hope this helps. You guys got this!

    Duke New Grad Residency Summer 2019

    Does anyone have any insight into the shadow/interview experience? I am trying to prepare and stressing out a bit. I have heard to be yourself and that they make you feel welcome. My plan is to layout some answers to behavior based questions and then layout questions I want to ask them. Thoughts? Advice?
