  1. I passed. I've always had test anxiety, but nothing like it was during nursing school. I think a big difference this time around is that the stakes felt higher. I've got mouths to feed, an uncomfortable amount of student loan debt, and I'm proba...
  2. I wish it were that quick in my neck of the woods. I come from a state where nothing, particularly administrative and regulatory bodies, moves quickly. From my classmates' experiences, it's been taking weeks for their licenses to post.
  3. ... 75 and out in less than 45 minutes. Assuming that the good popup is reliable (I waited 2 hours after I received the email), I can't even describe the weight I feel off my shoulders. I know, everybody told me so. I'm not going to lie, I walke...
  4. I want to thank everybody for their replies. Here's where I'm at right now. I just took my last Hurst q-simulator and scored a 103. Yeah, I know, I shouldn't study the day before. But that just isn't me. I'm going to try my best to keep it light...
  5. Easy questions vs. Hard questions?

    It's technically possible to write a SATA question at any level. NCLEX questions and their difficulty levels are based off of Bloom's Taxonomy. Easier questions assess your ability to recognize, remember, and understand information. Tougher questions...
  6. I've always had a lot of test anxiety. I know that it is probably something I should work through with a counselor. The very short story is that, growing up, A's = validation, B = "You didn't apply yourself. I know you can do better.", and <B = Sh...
  7. Through my LPN and BSN programs, being a male was a total non-issue everywhere except during my OB clinicals. I had one patient who didn't want a male student. It didn't hurt my feelings because, honestly, I've got zero interest in OB. On the j...
  8. Struggling with NCLEX Prep: UWorld + Kaplan

    The scores do mean something, just not in the way that you think. They're useful in revealing your weak points. Remediating on what you're missing is vastly more important than ruminating on what your scores are. The one area where I do worry m...
  9. Failed NCLEX 3 Times in FL, Advice/Tips on NCLEX in GA

    I'm getting ready to take mine for the first time, and I'm pretty sure I'm going to crash and burn on it. Long story short is that I'm under a lot of pressure to take it but know from studying/practice tests that I've got several gaps in content I ne...
  10. This probably doesn't make much sense, but it actually feels like I stand a better chance since deciding I'm probably going to fail. It's like there is less pressure and I feel less anxious. I just try to push it out of my mind that the consequ...
  11. I graduated a BSN program in May and am taking my first NCLEX attempt in a few days. I'm almost positive I am going to fail it, and I don't feel ready at all. Basically, I've already accepted defeat and am trying to plan for my next attempt. I had or...
