    Trinitas or Mountainside?

    I think nursing schools everywhere put you threw hell. I just graduate from Ocean County College. I think its just the way they teach nurses.

    No GN law, does it turn you off jersey?

    Its sad to say but they are like that here. I just graduated from Ocean County College. Many of the students down here are already techs and they have first dibs on those jobs. They said it should be better in the fall. I decided to go north of the bridge and was hired in a new graduate position. But it had condition i had to pass my boards. And happily I just found out yesterday i did. Open houses may be way to go. Few of my classmates where hired that way. Good luck.

    do Kaplan, expensive but they covered what you need to know and how to answer the questions. I think if i didnt do it i would of never passed. I also sujest before kaplan do the learning ext to review content then Kaplan to learn how to answer the questions. They have many tips and tricks how do them.

    Took NCLEX - What Went Wrong?

    i just took test, felt it was very hard, I think if i didn't do the Kaplan i wouldnt of passed, they stressed prioritzation which i was lacking in my schooling. As for them meds, i had no idea, didnt see any of them in my reviews. I thought i failed.

    TIPS/Info for passing NCLEX

    I just found out i passed with 75 questions, I did Kaplan then used the http://www.learningext.com/ website which i thought was a great content review. But Kaplan prepaired me for all the prioritizing questions and tips. Which was most of my test. S/S of meds with learning ext was good but still didnt prepair me for the ones i got. Good luck
