After 22 agonizing days, my name is finally on breeze!!! I am an RN! :) My advise to those waiting in ca is to call the bon. It may have just been a coincidence, but I called this morning and my name finally appeared tonight. I am beyond relieved right now. To everyone still waiting, believe in yourself.
As far as study tips: I love Saunders. I didn't make it to the end of the book this time, but it really helped me to understand content. Kaplan questions are very similar to nclex question. Also, the screen looks exactly the same, which helped me a little with the anxiety. I didn't find the Kaplan online review helpful at all though. Also, if you work full time and it is at all possible, take at least a week off of work before the test. I found this incredibly helpful.
Okay, a bit long, but I am SO happy right now. Being able to come on the site and know I wasn't alone has been wonderful. Good luck to all of you future nurses out there. Don't ever give up.
