    Kaplan

    Hey guys, does anyone of you know how to use the Kaplan’s decision tree? It does work with every question for me. Am I doing it wrong?

    Ran out of time on the NCLEX-RN

    The resources I used to study got all those topics that came so it was somewhat easy for me to recall what came. When I was getting soo many SATA’s I was scoring it on my board. Thank you though.

    Ran out of time on the NCLEX-RN

    So I had 38 SATA 2 drop and drag (SBAR & Sputum Culture) 7 Exhibit (which medication nurse should question) 3 EKG (A-fib and Asytole) 3 Dosage Follow ups (>20) See Firsts (>30) Prioritization (>60) Delegation Psych (schizophrenia etc.) Know your PRECAUTIONS and appropriate PPE Diets Vaccines (pneumococcal, influenza (which pt. Shouldn’t receive it). Positions (after procedures) Know your basics (techniques for Lung sounds etc.) Peak flow meter MDI Trach care Ventilators Labs (knowing your labs is a MUST!!!) Tourniquet (IV access) Kids (poisoning/overdosing) Maternity (Mag Sulfate) Know yours meds Some of the diseases that came for me was: Cystic fibrosis, crohns, wilm’s tumor, guillain barre, TB, Pneumonia, HIV/AIDS, Renal Failure, NMS, Autonomic Dysreflexia, Heart Failure, RA, colostomy, Diabetes (DKA & HHNK, Glargine, Insulin administration, picking the correct technique from a photo), Stroke, Asthma etc Guys trust me on this, if you really study quick facts along with the 35 page packet file the test will be so much easier than you’d expect. You’d be able to rule out answer choices. Now the questions wouldn’t be so basic, you’d have to figure out what it’s asking esp in the answer choices e.g. signs & symptoms will lead you to the topic. When I started the test (RN) I was taking my time as I was reasoning the choices. The computer gave me 3 breaks and I took all 3. After my last break is when I realized that I wasn’t going to complete the entire test. I was going to run out of time. So I was rushing to complete as much as I can before it ended(well that was a bad idea. I should have taken my time since they’re only gonna grade my last 60 questions ). Lesson learned, even if I don’t pass I know I will on my next try!!! Because I felt prepared and I know I was close. Time expired at 226. I hope this at least help some of you prepare.

    Sat my NCLEX-RN today

    I have two friends that starting off up there and is still working there. They both want me to come there. Their explanation of the place I mean it’s not like NY NY but it’s doable. Plus you can get to go back and forth. Thinking of the long term effect it’s worth it. Rent wise it’s like $500-700 depending on where you choose to leave and if you have a roommate.

    Sat my NCLEX-RN today

    Thank you! I am trying to remain positive and not have fear. Yes that is soo true! I really didn’t expect that finding a job will be soo draining. Mainly LTC being available but working there as a new grad doesn’t give you any hospital experience when you try to transfer. I have a job offer at a hospital upstate NY. I really don’t want to go up there because I’d have to pay rent when I live freely at home, plus they start you off very low $25-26/hr. But again the cost of living up there is low as well as tax so I guess it balances off. If I don’t get anything then I’d take it, work for a year and apply in the city.

    Hey I’m also in NY, I test in a few weeks. I am also a repeat tester. I think it takes like 6 weeks. That’s how long it took my friend’s name to be on there. How are jobs looking for you in NY?

    Failed Nclex AGAIN!!!!! HELP!

    Thank you. I used Kaplan the first time and their rationales really sucked. The decision tree was taking soo much time so I just forgot about it. But I will try to incorporate it as I am studying again.

    ATT Validity in New York

    Hello, I live in NY too. I graduated Dec of 2018. I applied for my License and paid for the exam January 29. I didn’t get my ATT until June. Reason being, the government shut down had a 5-6 weeks delay. So they were opening mails based on the order it was received. Soo many people apply out here in NY so the population of nurses is huge! On top of that my school took a month to send out my certification form smh! I’d say to you apply now! I haven’t studied for quite some time while waiting for the ATT and that was bad. Now I’m seeing why because it feels like i was forgetting stuff. So I had to over study which didn’t really help on the nclex. I’ve posted 2 stories feel free to read them. All the best!

    Failed Nclex AGAIN!!!!! HELP!

    This was very very encouraging and helpful. Thank you sooo much! I will look into those materials. With uworld I only used it for like 2 and 1/2 weeks before the test (700 something questions left). Yes prayers are always important. I forgot to mention 2 weeks before my test I was dealing with 2 sudden deaths in my family. I probably should have reschedule the exam but I’d get it this time around. Again thank you and all the best to you

    Failed Nclex AGAIN!!!!! HELP!

    Hello everyone, I took the nclex for the second time on Wednesday 07/24/2019 at 8am. For preparations this time around I used Uworld. I loved it esp. the rationales. Uworld gave me a high chance of passing the NCLEX (76%). I went into the exam room and this time around I was more confident and calm. I was given a private room I was soo happy. At 137 questions the computer shut off. I was giving two breaks and trust me I took them this time around. I then went to the restroom and I prayed both times and even throughout the test. Praying helped calm my nerves. This time around I did not do the PVT trick. I just waited for the 48hrs to get my quick results. Of course I couldn’t check for myself so I had my husband check while at work (1st time too). That’s how bad my nerves are...I was like, good news call and bad news text me. When I saw that sad face I almost died y’all. I was sooo hurt! But I didn’t cry . I just said to myself! “Girl you know you always have to go through that battle to get to where you want to be, so just Thank God even in the bad times and keep pressing on!” Even though the news wasn’t what I expected I still managed to pray. You only fail when you give up and that’s not me or else I wouldn’t have been where I am today! Anyways, the test started of pretty smooth. The test threw at me sooo many SATA ; OB; I had about 3 dosage; 1 EKG; Delagation; Prioritization; Click and drag for certain techniques; I had a lot of Infection control questions; about 3/4 meds; Um some safety ; what should the nurse document; and the list goes on. Also, had about 6/7 diseases on there that I’d never seen before . I came out of the exam in mixed feelings. Not sure what to expect but at the same time remaining positive. Since it was my second time retesting it was just a different set of emotions to that off my first time. I am indeed a bad test taker! Ask me to explain something to you and I will but give me a question and I’ll be freaking the hell out! Daily i’ve done 2/3 sets of 75 questions on Uworld. Went to the library everyday. I created a binder and separated the pages based on systems. So when Remediating I’d write rationales for cardiac in the cardiac section in my binder rather than having all the systems all over the place. A more organized structure is sorta what I did. I’m visual so colored pens/ markers helps me remember also while writing. I didn’t get to remediate all the rationales for the questions I did daily on that very same day. But I finished them before starting a new set of questions. Coming closer to the test 2-3 days. I started doing just strictly questions and looking over what I really didn’t know. Now I am sort of lost because I don’t know what else to do. My friend told me about Remar. She’s going to send me the CD so that’s good I don’t have to spend extra money. And there’s a book for it which is about $16 at barnes and nobles. So I’d try those. I forgot to mention I did use Mark K a lil bit this time around but more on my first time. I also read through that 35 nclex packet about 3 times. So I really don’t know what it is I’m doing wrong. Id wait for my report. Anyone else on here passed On the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th time it don’t matter please send me some tips. I know what works for others may not work for me but it’s only one way to find out. To know about my first experience it’s on my profile. I apologize for this long message. Thank you
