    What Do I Do Now?

    Sorry to hear that. Try to stay positive, keep your head up, and move past it. Focus on the future and your studies for when you do take it again. It's all about positive self-talk...! What did you do to study for the NCLEX the first time? Like someone else commented prior, I also recommend UWorld...but I just wanted to get an idea of how your studying went the first time around.

    NCLEX in February 2017

    I'm surprised you already did your readiness. My Kaplan instructor told our class to reserve it for the end and to take it about a week before you test. With that said, I suggest you continue doing the question trainers and QBank. Make sure you review all of your questions--right and wrong. Looks like you're headed in the right direction, though. Good luck!

    NCLEX in February 2017

    The decision tree works, problem is the bulk of the questions are going to be "outcome" questions, not Maslow or ABC. Towards the end of my NCLEX studying, I found myself using the tree less and less. I had a better sense of what the answers were because of the way the questions/answers were presented. With that said, I did over 5000 questions (all of Kaplan's QBank, question trainers, diagnostic, and readiness tests plus 1100 questions from UWorld + the self-assessment), reviewed each one right and wrong, and ensured I understood the rationales. I did content review when I wasn't familiar with subject matter and took ~30 pages of notes. Passed last week with 75. Good luck!

    NCLEX 2017 - Low Kaplan Scores

    Did you watch the videos in Kaplan? They explain the decision tree process. Good luck

    When to stop studying for the NCLEX

    Your experience sounds similar to mine. My Qbank average was also 59% and I did all of the Qbank. I achieved 74% on Readiness after completing all of the Qbank questions and I also achieved scores in the 60s during the last week or so prior to taking my NCLEX. For me, I wanted to complete all of my Kaplan resources so I could walk out of the NCLEX with no regrets. I didn't want to think, "Should I have done those last 200 Qbank questions? Would it have made a difference??" I did, however, stop studying ~24 hours til my NCLEX. I took it past Monday, so I relaxed by cooking and watching the Super Bowl the day before. I passed in 75 questions. Good luck!
  8. I would go with your gut feeling. If you feel like you aren't ready, then don't force yourself to take it on Friday. I rescheduled mine twice. My advice is to review each and every question you do--read the rationales thoroughly and take notes if you need to. But really understand why you chose the wrong answers but also why you chose the correct answers.

    Yes, PVT is basically re-registering for the NCLEX. If you take on Saturday, you should receive your results on Tuesday after midnight. My license posted to BreEZe Once you have your license number, you're good to go. No need to wait for your license...good luck!

    Those are great scores! You'll do amazing. My UWorld avg was 61% and 69% (94th percentile) on the predictor. I looked over a study guide I found online and the notes I took while I reviewed the rationales.

    Maybe reach out to your nursing school to follow-up to see if they sent transcripts on time? I'd say that's your best bet... Good luck!
