    Advice For The New Nurse Entering Med-Surg

    hi everyone, your post are so helpful and inspiring! i'm a new RN here in the US but i graduated from another country, i'm very stressed and cant sleep at night. im very nervous about my new job as a Med-Surg nurse(im starting anytime now).. i have 0 experience even in the country i graduated from & its been a year since my last exposure to the hospital...can any1 give me suggestions on what book should i use as a reference,? i bought this nursing skills book as a reference for the common nursing procedures used in the hosp.. and an assessment book w/c is very helpful.. i still have no reference for the diseases usually encountered in the med-surg ward..and what diseases are usually encountered in med-surg,so i can look up to it..your suggestions and advices is badly needed.. i dont know where to start in preparing for my first job..:chair:

    Can You Fail With 75 Questions?

    one can never tell..some passed at 75 and some failed but according to the thread i've read here,there's a bigger chance in passing @ 75. i too felt the same way a month ago wen i took my exam, it turned blue at 75. I thought i flunked my exam but after 14 days of waiting i received my letter from BON that i passed!! GoodLuck to you!

    questions please respond :0)

    1. How many hours a day did you study? How many months? =12hrs a day for 3 1/2 weeks ( i started reviewing religiously the minute i got my ATT) 2. Did you use kaplan? =i used kaplan 3. if you used kaplan, what were your scores on your Qbank? on the question trainers? =my score ranges from 50-60%.. i even got 43% from one of the Qtrainers 4. Do you recomend watching the videos on content of kaplan? =i didnot watched the videos..but if i had the time i would have watched it 5. Did you use the ncsbn "learning extension" site? did you find it helpful? was it similar to the actual exam? =i didnot use it 6. Did you use Lippincott? Mosby's? Saunders? HESI? Davis? =i used Saunder's Q & A..but i focused on the q-banks 7. What do you believe was the most helpful in passing your NCLEX-RN?? =The Qbank i guess, i practiced a lot of questions & i found this notes online w/c helped a lot & fryes 3000+ bullets w/c i carry always, while on the bus or waiting in line..or anytime i can glance at it..
