    Hurst with Nclex Help Study Plan

    My advice is not to become overwhelmed with so many different things to study. I thought I needed everything to study and ended up with 10 different books plus my Hurst material. I became completely overwhelmed. I have 3 small children and my life is quite busy as well. Something that helped me learn the HURST material and all throughout nursing school is to record your notes while you are sitting down to study them that way you can listen to them on the road, washing dishes, washing/folding clothes, mowing, or anything else that you have to get done. This way you can listen to much more material and not feel like your selling yourself short by taking care of other responsibilities. For the NCLEX, I ended up not worrying about my other 10 books of NCLEX study material (I actually hid it so I couldn't see it!) and just studied HURST. The content is great and if you can just learn it the way they say it, you can apply the information to any disease process. When I sat down Tuesday to take my exam, I immediately started freaking out because my very first question was on some random disease that I had never heard of! But, I used the Hurst material to rationalize each question and my computer shut off at 75 questions! It has been two days today and I am waiting for the quick results to let me check because it still says my test results are unavailable at this time, but I have been getting the good pop up on the PVT since 30 minutes after I took my exam....probably tried it about 50 times now! So, if everybody is right about the PVT, I passed. Good luck to you and keep your confidence! I will keep you and your family in my prayers.

    NCLEX on Tuesday......freaking out!

    I used HURST and am so glad that I did! I could apply what I learned with HURST to every question that I had, and the exam shut off at 75. I have gotten the good pop up so far, but will be trying the quick results as soon as it is available for me to do so today! I am like many others on this site.....it is hard for you to believe you passed until you see your license number!

    License #....How soon will it show?

    Thanks for responding! I am having a hard time waiting! I took NCLEX 2 days ago and the quick results isn't working for mine for some reason. I called the TN BON and they said it would be 4-6 weeks.....this seems like a really long time since AL posts theirs in 1-3 days!
  5. I was wondering how long after you take NCLEX will it take for your license # to show up on the TN BON website.

    Hurst scores??

    I heard that if you are making 60 points or above it is good. I take my NCLEX tomorrow and my scores range from 84 to 91 points (not percentage). My friends that already passed their NCLEX with 75 to 90 questions were making about the same ranges like 75 to 90 points. I hope I have the same luck that they did! Good luck to you!

    mangopeach: CONGRATULATIONS!!! I hope that I will be able to see my name on the BON! I am wishing that I had taken mine sooner because I have been stressing about it for over a month now!

    SN_2012: I feel the same way! I am so tired of studying and feel like my brain is on overload and will not hold anymore information! I will be praying that we all pass! Good luck to you!

    jlan79: I am taking mine at 2pm also. I usually go through tests fast too and sometimes tend to miss key words, so I will really have to watch and slow down. I feel like my brain is about to explode with all of the studying! I am also seeing and hearing so many who have already taken the test say that there is really no way to study for this test because it is so random. I guess it is more on judgement. Good luck to you too and I will definitely be doing the PVT. I am very impatient! :uhoh21:

    I am so ready to pass this test and move on to the "better life"! I have constantly been praying and I believe that is the only thing keeping my sanity intact at the moment. Thank you for your kind words and good luck to you!
  16. I am taking my NCLEX on Tuesday and I am scared to death! Most of all the students from my nursing class have passed, but I am so worried that I will be one of the ones who won't! All of my close friends have passed already, but it seems like everything they say to try to calm my nerves just makes them so much worse. I am to the point of chest pain every time I study and I can't sleep good anymore! My house is always crazy with noise----3 small children, so I can't just have a moment of peace. Of course, I am used to that, but it seems like everything is just increasing my anxiety! I have been studying the Hurst review, but others are saying that none of that was even on the exam! Any advice?
