AspiringRN has 4 years experience as a CNA, LPN and specializes in Geriatrics.

I was a HHA, CNA now I am a LPN.

I chose the harder road, but it is highly rewarding.

I have a unique perspective of the nursing field due to my job experience.

    @studentnurse2018 WOW!! Your state is quick. I didn’t show up in the bon until a week later in NY

    Taking NCLEX soon during COVID.

    Thanks so much! I used the entire Q-Bank of UWorld (went over it multiple times). I thoroughly read the rationales and made sure I understood them. I also used the NCLEX Saunders book. I read it throughout nursing school, so all I did this time around was redo all of the questions and re-read the rationales. I also reviewed my lab values. It helped so much! I went into the test confident and finished in a little over an hour. You can do this! Don't second guess yourself. You know the information. Stick with the answer you originally choose.

    Taking NCLEX soon during COVID.

    Hi, I took my NCLEX PN May 27. It shut down on me at 60 questions. I did the Pearson Vue Trick and got the "good pop up". 48 hours later I paid for my quick results and I found out that I passed. Good luck I hope you pass your NCLEX RN this time around! I studied so much that I had no anxiety during testing (which is different for me because I am a highly anxious person).

    How far out is NCLEX-RN scheduling? May 2020 COVID

    I saw plenty of dates available. There were many RNs and PNs there to test.

    Thanks, I am an LPN now. I am already looking into LPN to RN bridge programs to go into.

    Sorry to hear that you did not pass. I paid for my quick results this morning and I passed! I am so relieved. If you need anyone to talk to then feel free to message me. I would be so happy to share with you what helped me pass

    NCLEX-PN, PVT “Results on hold”

    WOW!, your test sounded a bit more difficult than mine. I will pray for you! Do they have quick results available in Cali? I studied 100 questions a day using UWorld.In addition I did 30 questions a day using Saunders book. I thoroughly studied the rationales. I made charts with all of my lab numbers and memorized those and went over medications and side effects. What did you use to study?

    NCLEX-PN, PVT “Results on hold”

    Hey LOL. We are in the same boat. I took mine yesterday and still awaiting my results.
  11. You were taking pre-reqs. Someone that is has to have a very high GPA and test to get into the nursing program. Your anatomy 1 grade was very low. That is enough to get you disqualified. I would ask if I can retake it for a better grade. Some programs are so strict that they leave no exceptions and won’t allow that.

    How far out is NCLEX-RN scheduling? May 2020 COVID

    It depends on which state you are living in. I am from NY. My April test was cancelled. I was able to get an appointment in May. They cancelled all of April.

    Feeling anxious about nursing school

    Hi, I am a recent graduate of LPN school ( February 2020. ) The LPN program in general is crammed with a lot of material in a short period of time and constant studying. If you're having doubts about not doing well before you've already started the program, you have to question yourself and ask "Is this really for me?". The nursing program is difficult in general and needs 100 percent dedication. If you're looking for tips, one of the biggest tips I can give you is: Self doubt will always deter you. Believe in yourself! Order books now and practice nursing questions ahead of time: NCLEX PN Saunders Book is one of the many sources that will help you throughout the entire program. And yes, it's also good to make friends at the beginning in the program (as long as they aren't a distraction). They are who can help to provide study tips and extra sources to you.

    How accurate is the Pearson Vue Trick?

    I just took my NCLEX PN exam today at 8:00am. I finished 60 questions in a little over an hour. I just did the Pearson Vue Trick and I am getting a "Good pop up" I hope this indicates that I passed. I don't want to get too stoked because there is always room for disappointment (just being practical). How accurate is the Pearson vue trick, does anyone here know?

    Your test date seems to not be cancelled. I would call to confirm my test date isn’t.
