    questions about nursing school in University of Florida

    I'm not going to lie, it's tough. The grading scale is different from the rest of UF.. so most of the people who were determined to get As did so by having absolutely no life outside of school. The first semester is designed to weed people out and it worked on about 10-15 students in our program. I can answer any detailed questions you have if you want to PM me. I graduated last spring.

    Priority Questions___nclex Rn

    I pretty much used ABC, Maslow and nursing process when I was studying, but when I was taking the actual NCLEX, all of my strategy skills vanished! So basically I was just looking at the priority questions, trying to eliminate anyone who wasn't really, really going to die soon :chuckle (cruel I know) and then usually narrowing it down to two, I just had to pick the one I thought was in worse condition (while keeping ABCs and stuff in mind) The priority are TOUGH, but just try to use good judgement and anything you've learned about the disease processes, etc. Good luck!

    I think I'm going to puke

    I also felt like all the strategy that I drilled into my head was lost the minute the test started. I could barely think straight, no less apply what I had learned! Luckily, it all worked out and I passed at 75! I'm betting you'll be an RN before you know it! :)

    Good luck! We'll all be thinking of you, so be sure to let us know the outcome! I bet you did great! :)

    When did you stop studying for NCLEX?

    I'm guilty of studying right up until the minute I got out of my car to go into the exam building :chuckle but that's just the way I've always been. Most people say to take off the day before your exam and it seems to work well for them and let them relax and clear their minds before the test. I guess whatever works best for you! GOOD LUCK!!

    graduate school for nurses

    I just got my BSN in April, and will be starting my masters program in August for Adult NP. I'm young (21) but I think its best for me to go straight into the program while I'm without any family responsibilities, and still in study-mode! I'd love to see a grad school forum, because I'm sure I'm going to have a lot to talk about! :chuckle

    NCLEX Number of Questions and Clarification

    I felt exactly the same you do. It was much harder than I expected, it shut off at 75 and it was priority, priority, priority! I was going NUTS! but I passed! And hopefully you will too! Best wishes! 🙂 Let us know when you find out, but I have a feeling you'll be an RN in no time!

    NCLEX Number of Questions and Clarification

    Good luck! I felt the same way.. I was just waiting for my head to explode, but it didn't and everything was okay! Hope you can relax (easier said than done) and do well! 🙂
