Nattienat's Latest Activity

  1. I graduated from the Lpn portion of my program in June 2018, and had to withdraw from the 2nd year to get the RN because my husband found a job in another state and we moved in August 2018. I was pregnant and stupidly didn’t use any of the free time I’ve had as a stay at home mom to study. I have been filling my days with naps and vigorous cleaning and cooking routines, leaving out any time for reviewing my study material. Now it’s been over a year and I have a 4 month old and I am planning to go back to get my RN in the fall of 2020. I don’t want to get back into school with 2 years of no experience, so I want to take the nclex pn and get some experience working as an Lpn. I didn’t study or take the test sooner because I am afraid of failure. So instead I decided to fail by default. Now I deeply regret waiting so long, and I’m just wondering if anyone has any tips on getting back into the groove and refreshing the knowledge enough to pass the test hopefully on my first try. I was getting low A’s and high B’s in nursing school because I’m a really good test taker and I figured out how to properly study the material for nclex type questions. But I have this nagging thought that I waited too long and it’ll be a waste of money that we don’t have enough of as it is, and I’ll be so ashamed and guilty because it was my fault I waited so long. Is 1 year really that long or do people generally still have the knowledge fresh enough that it comes back?
