    Those who just took the NCLEX

    I took the NCLEX RN yesterday and let me tell you I did not feel confident at all. I mean you hear the horror stories of people failing and all kinds of things. But I personally did about 50 questions a day and some days I did 100. I stuided Kaplan not the course but the stragies book, Lacharity, and Saunders. Like everybody says just do questions over and over again and pay attention to rationales. Pay close attention to infection control I had ALOT of those as well as priority and SATA. I found out that I passed today and I am soooo excited that Florida is one of those states that lets you know in 24hrs for free to boot. But good luck to you and don't pay attention if you don't stop at a certain number I had 200 questions and passed!

    Thoughts on/advice for new grads in Neuro ICU please...

    Any updates??? I will be graduating soon and I am also interested in Neuro ICU, but of course shaking in my boots because it seems so challenging.

    Working Students with Children

    For me personally, I couldn't see myself working fulltime and going to school full time. Nursing school requires ALOT of studying and for me that would be too much. Not to say that you can't work at all, because I do work every weekend (20hrs). So if possibly work parttime or find a hospital who will pay you for going to school. Thats what I'm doing and its great, fulltime pay and I only work 2 days a week. Good luck to you!!

    What is it most time-consuming you are studding now?

    I agree with fluid and electrolytes being hard, but also in my class a bunch of us had a hard time with diabetes.

    Nursing School

    Okay thanks that makes me feel better. The feeling of someone looking over my shoulder I know is something I will HAVE to get over since I know this ahead of time. I rather them tell me what Im doing wrong and see it rather than potentially hurting a patient. I also would like another chance if I screw up.LOL. So thanks makes me feel muuuuuch better.

    Nursing School

    Thanks for this post, I am nervous. I guess its not knowing thats really got me nervous. But I have a question about clinicals since this is either pass/fail then what have you experienced or seen happen to other students that have failed clinicals. I have heard that some instructors stand over you and watch your every step and that is something that really makes me nervous. I understand that they don't want us to harm a patient, but how do you remain calm in situations like this? Sorry for so many questions I am so scared and of course I dont want to let them know because of the whole weeding out thing and of course I want them to know I am confident. Thanks in advance
