    Long Wait.. :(

    I use to study monday to friday about a hour a day (march-mid june) then i stopped..Since i started up again, I have been studying everyday for the past 3 weeks 2 hours per day..The most difficult section for me is the pharmacology section (routine meds as our instructors called it i.e cardio meds, antiobiotics, psych meds i am ok with)..I use saunders for practice and i have been getting in the 80's for all the systems, Pharmacology is not looking so hot for me as i stated i have been getting in the low 60's..Don't know if that's good enough.. Thanks for your reply

    Long Wait.. :(

    Hi everyone, I graduated from Nursing School back in January of 2010..And i havent taken my NCLEX-PN as yet because i was going through financial hardship and was not able to pay for my test..I recently paid and set a date for August 23rd..I am very scared because of the long wait and do not know if i should take the test or re-schedule and take a re-fresher course..I am currently using Saunders and Mosby's and i get good scores in them but i do not know if that would be sufficient in helping me..I just always remember our instructors saying do not wait too long because you will forget things and that's exactly what ended up happening to me..If you have been in a similar situation or know someone who was please comment I need any word of advice please..I'm really scared/sad:crying2:

    Ct lpn entrance exam

    i am currently enrolled at prince tech in hartford. in my opinion i do not think the program is hard if you study and put a little dedication into it. nursing school in general can be intense but i think it is absolutely do-able. and on top of it the nclex-pn pass rate for the last class on first try have been 98% if you have any other questions feel free to ask... :wshgrt: best wishes to you..... :redbeathenina:heartbeat, spn c/o 2010
  12. hello everyone, i am a single mother of one (a 5 year old). i am pass the halfway mark in the lpn/lvn program and i was told on several occassions by both instructors and students that i am taking nursing school a little too seriously and that i need to relax a bit. ever since i have been taking fundamentals of nursing i have been using my saunders and pearsons nclex review books to study extra and do practice exams. i just recently finished psychiatrict nursing and came out with a 96 average in the class which i was told that is the highest they have ever seen as a final grade by the director of the program and she has been there for 10 years (and by the about 5 people failed).my thing is i just want to know if i am really over doing it and causing myself extra stress that is not needed? should i just study from the powerpoints that are provided by the instructors and textbooks that i have? will it make a difference when it comes time to take the nclex-pn that i did all this extra work or can i get by on just doing the minimum? p.s my graduation date is suppose to be in jan 2010 (because we take summer vacation):onbch: should i wait until the last month or two before i have completed my program to start preparing for the boards? all replies will be greatly appreciated

    Ct lpn entrance exam

    hi tee1978. i am currently enrolled at one of the state schools. you can go to www.cttech.org/lpn and it will give you all the neccesary info you will need. the entrance test is through net and they do have a review book but is very expensive. when i was studying for my entrance test i used the saunders lpn entrance book and i got it for $3.00 from half.com when i compared the book with my friend that bought the net review book it was the exact same thing except that she forked up $35.00 for hers. the requirements are now different than previously. now they require that you have math 137, english 101 (if you do not have these courses i would really advise that you start to do them now) and, you do not have to do an interview anymore. they say its because now the graduates can do the bridge program and do just the last two semesters in the adn program. i hope this information helps. best wishes to you -:redpinkhenina:heartbeat c/o 2010
