    Need advice on HOW to study for nclex-pn!

    @ determine Well Saunders book recommends six weeks of study and practicing questions and pea son vue let you retest the nclex in 45 days= 6wks if you don't pass. So in my opinion take 6 wks or as long as you need, but not to long though. Just make sure you set goals/ study schedule and stick to it don't deviate and if you do get right back into it. There will be times you will be discouraged absolutely, just keep positive thoughts and reaffirmation like I will pass my nclex pn exam. Believe the statement and say to yourself everyday when you wake, coming in from work and mean it. Praying, meditating, working out helps clear you mind and increases clarity. At the end of the day find what work best for you. You can follow the steps i wrote on the first verbatim or modify it to suit you need. Before i forget, start studying your weak areas first and then review areas you already know after. The kaplan strategies book for nclex pn 2012 - 2013 read it about 5 times cover to cover, till you know the strategies by heart. I know it sound overkill but knowing the strategy and being able to identify what the question the asking helps a lot. There are a lot of success stories on allnurses.com to read for encouragement. Stay positive and you will do well this time. Oh one more thing, since you are going to pass this, have a shot of tequila on my behalf LOL joking. It also helps to laugh and smile as opposed to feeling sad and defeated. Good Luck.
