  1. Failed 7th time NCLEX RN. Am I a really a failure?

    Sakshi. Don't lose heart. Nobody is EVER a failure....and same goes for you. You were intelligent enough to make it through the gruelling nursing school, this is just the last hurdle you need to clear. There is a certain strategy and mindset that you...
  2. Herzing or Keiser? - Orlando

    Hi. The NET test was given - i believe- until 2009, and was nothing more than math and english. It has been phased out now and you will have to take the TEAS test, which in itself is gruelling. It has all that, and sections of basic sciences as well....
  3. NCLEX-RN Exam on April 2011, need motivation?

    Hello, and congrats to those who passed the exam. I have a question for all of those who passed....If you did Kaplan...what was your average....I've been doing Kaplan for a while and my scores are not that promising. I'm so scare and will be taking m...
  4. 2 questions about management of care

    As for the answer to your questions....Here is my rationale: Answer 1 - D - (why??) - because, if you DON'T teach the client correct use of insulin, they may take too much - and then bottom out - and run into a coma...which negates ALL other interven...
  5. Where are all the jobs????

    All of you bring up very valid and interesting points. With the job market saturating with graduate nurses, that are unable to find jobs for the longest time, the situation will only go further south, which is "exactly" (and I emphasize-exactly, with...
  6. Herzing or Keiser? - Orlando

    Floridamama. You definitely want NLN accreditation for any nursing school you want to attend. In fact, that is the first question you should ask. Regional accreditation is okay, and it will get you the ability to practice in the state of FL. But if y...

  8. Anyone taken the NCSBN Online Review

    Did the OB section from NCSBN.....and RARELY went wrong on another OB question ever again -- on three other online preps that i used - ATI, Hurst AND Kaplan.
  9. Kaplan or Hurst NCLEX-RN review which one is better?

    I did both and this is what i found: KAPLAN: great question prep. Very similar in wording, difficulty level and content to real NCLEX. Didn't have many surprises. so so on content prep. Unless you are willing to sit a countless hours listening to on...
  10. WHEN TO SIGN UP FOR NCLEX and Kaplan HELP

    I would give it betwen 4-6 weeks after kaplan class is over, to be able to assimilate the information, and have enough time to enough questions on Kaplan and also understand the rationales on the questions without having to rush. Getting fired up and...
  11. How to Study Pharmacology for NCLEX-RN

    majority of pharm questions you will get on the NCLEX, there is a good chance you probably would never even have heard of that drug. So, the best way to learn the drug is by the class, its ending (OLS, OLOLS), AND the chemical name (or whatever it is...
  12. NCLEX-RN advice for 3rd time test-taker??

    I sincerely hope as well that you are successful this time. However, God forbid, IF you happen to go to 265, doesn't matter what you ve done in the past questions....on question #264, do me a favor, take a five minute break, wash your face, freshen ...
  13. how many questions did you do before the test??

    did around a 1000-1500. Passed with 75. BUT learned the content in and out, its application, and prioritization strategies. All three are interlinked more than you can imagine.
  14. A question for any re-takers??

    the questions that you took have been purged from your particular account. You will never see the same question again. Sorry to hear that you have to take on the beast again, but unless you quit divulging on what you did in the past, you will be seri...
  15. confused about question wordings...

    Your follow up would be to make sure whatever you tried to prevent (given in the question) has actually been prevented....so, you ve got to look for the particular s/sx/labs / reports of a successful intervention on the particular condition. Confused...
