  1. Taking NCLEX-RN - March 3, 2009

    Edwardcullen - Congrats for making it to the other side! Now if we could only find jobs. I am sure you will be a great nurse.
  2. New grad work history.

    I am in the exact same boat, and am very interested to hear what anyone has to say. I made a decision while in school to focus only on school and family, and not work. It paid off, my family has survived, my grades were excellent, and I am ready to...
  3. Taking NCLEX-RN - March 3, 2009

    edwardcullen - Skip the energy drinks, stick with a good breakfast and healthy snacks. You are making yourself crazy and need to relax! Take a walk to burn off your extra energy and help you sleep tonight. Are you driving to Merrillville or Indy? ...
  4. Taking NCLEX-RN - March 3, 2009

    It sounds like you are as ready as you can be. Try to relax, take your time with each question, use your Kaplan strategies when you have to choose an answer you're not sure about. Expect to walk out feeling that you did a terrible job, and then be ...
  5. I am a new grad in northwest indiana. I know the job market is tighter than it was when I started school, but was really hoping then that I could find a job when I graduated that would help with my loans. I am fine with signing on for a few years c...
  6. Will holiday delay results?

    I just took my test today, 48 hours (2 business days) is what they said for results. Just wondering, is President's day considered a holiday? If anyone knows, I would appreciate it. One more day to wait seems unbearable!
  7. kaplans diagnostic test

    Be careful not to overstudy just before the test - take a day off to clear your head. Also, be prepared to walk out feeling like you failed - but don't freak out! I felt completely prepared (did all the Kaplan), but then felt like a total failure d...
  8. posting nclex on holidays

    Check your state board of nursing website and search her name to see if a license has been issued in her name. I found out that I passed this way a day before Pearson let me know. Be sure to see if a license number is assigned to her. Good luck!
  9. First Medication Error.....feeling horrible!!

    It happens! The important thing is that you handled it exactly as you should have. It's likely that you will never make that mistake again and if a lesson was learned and no one got hurt, you have to move on. I am sorry you have such a heavy load ...
  10. Will holiday delay results?

    THANKS! I have never been this nervous in my life. Pass or fail, I just want to know so I can move on.
  11. Am I too old to just be starting?

    I graduated in December, just after turning 47. If this is what you feel called to do, it doesn't matter how old you are! There is something to be gained by having more life experience as you enter school. Good luck!
  12. Is Kaplan helpful?

    I took Kaplan and felt really prepared and ready for NCLEX. However, fifteen minutes into NCLEX, and I felt like I was on a sinking ship. Still waiting for results, I will let you know if it actually helped. Good Luck!
  13. First time, NCLEX-RN, 265 questions, FAILED

    I took my exam today - 75 Q's, and I feel HORRIBLE! I took Kaplan and really felt prepared before I went in, but it didn't seem like it helped. I did great on the Kaplan tests, but the NCLEX Q's seemed like a foreign language. I will definately co...
