Thanks! I was so happy to just finally get it all over with and be able to start working.
Yeah, I think there are three primary parts to preparing for the test. The first is to identify what content you are weak in (for example, I knew I didn't remember insulins and most of the neuro and pituitary disorders very well). Only you can say what you do or don't know.
Second, study those areas and make sure you understand the BASIC disease process. The NCLEX people know you're not a specialized nurse with years of experience, they just want to make sure you know your basics such as how the disease is spread (contact, airborne...), what it does to your body, and what the person with the disease is most at risk for (airway compromise, bleeding, whatever).
Third, make sure you understand good strategy for taking the test. For example, on the NCLEX you should assume you have a dr.'s order for any option listed, so it's ok to chose "give morphine" or whatever if that seems like the right option. And, choose assessment options before intervention options since assessment comes first in the nursing process, that kind of thing.
Those are the best tips I've got! Also, trust yourself and don't panic! You've gone through years of school to prepare for this, you're probably pretty well prepared. When do you take it?
