  1. 2011 Graduates Put your hands up

    I finished in May, passed the the NCLEX July 20th, and will work starting the 8th. Yey, I will actually be a nurse now:dncgbby: I feel like the last 2 years was all about passing the boards. It's been grueling but VERY rewarding.

    I really think that it depends with each facility. The hospital that hired me doesn't take the "license pending" letter anymore unlike some people in my class who got hired with it. Goooooo take the NCLEX and be done with it. One thing at a time. Bes...
  3. Illinois Schools NCLEX pass rates 2006 - 2010

    Very interesting. I've been interested with these statistics for quite some time now. Nice to see my grueling ADN program in the burbs topping the passing rates for most schools. Yey! At least we didn't get tortured for nothing.

  6. Need study help for repeat nclex-rn taker

    I'm sorry to hear that. Don't lose hope. I thought the Kaplan book that they gave us in class was really helpful in reviewing the content. As far as practice, I just used all of the Kaplan qbank&qtrainers. You can do it. Familiarize yourself over...

    The PVT worked for me so I'm positive it'll work for you too. You just have to hang in there this next 2 days. Wine helps.

  12. Thoughts from a Kaplan user&NCLEX-RN passer...

    Actually, I was being modest with 6 hours a day. My last week I was up to 10:eek:. My friends scold me for being too OCD, but it's how I got through our program and all the tests I've taken passing the first time. With your credentials, it sounds lik...
