    Failed Nclex

    Hello, This was what I posted: 75 questions on the exam. Don't go through the motion of doing 4000 questions. You can get an idea of how the NCLEX works by doing less than 2000 questions but the key point here is to read every rationale and I mean everyone of them whether you got it wrong or right. It will train you think for the test and not read deep into the unnecessary details. I studied on and off for two weeks using NCLEX Mastery app on my ipad and did about 1750 questions. What I found helpful was reading the rationales regardless if I got it right. The rationales will give you insight to what the questions are ACTUALLY asking vs. what you THINK it's asking and also why the other options are incorrect. You will absolutely find this helpful for the NCLEX because you can't possibly know every disease, every medication, and every step HOWEVER it will force you to critically think and come to a conclusion so you can move on to the next question. What you will take out of doing the practice exams is know how to PRIORITIZE, PREVENT FATAL outcomes, MANAGEMENT, INFECTION CONTROL etc. It is also helpful to know prefixes and suffixes. NCLEX is testing you on your ability to think critically. There were a two medications that I have never seen but because of studying the prefixes, I was able to make an educated guess. This will vary from person to person but I had 75 questions and utilized 45 minutes. I had about 15 SATA, 2 medications, lots and lots of priority questions (lost count), a few management, rules and regulations, one order, four infection control. That's my two cents: Good Luck!!
  2. Hello Future Nurses! I took the NCLEX yesterday and wanted to share my experience and talk about this popular Pearson Vue Trick since this forum has helped so much! I studied on and off for two weeks using NCLEX Mastery app on my ipad and did about 1750 questions. What I found helpful was reading the rationales regardless if I got it right. The rationales will give you insight to what the questions are ACTUALLY asking vs. what you THINK it's asking and also why the other options are incorrect.

This will vary from person to person but I had 75 questions and utilized 45 minutes. I had about 15 SATA, 2 medications, lots and lots of priority questions (lost count), a few management, rules and regulations, one order, four infection control. Okay so now for the Pearson Vue Trick. For those who have not heard of it - it is a system loophole essentially that you can use to see if you passed or failed. After your exam, it is recommended that you wait at least two hours to try this trick: Go on to the Pearson Vue NCLEX registration site and register again by inputting in all your information, once you get to the credit card entry portion, you should use either a credit or debit card that has less than the amount needed to purchase the exam or input the wrong expiration date. NOW click submit. If you get a red alert saying you've already scheduled and cannot register again then you passed but if your card either went through or declined then you failed. ** I got the "good pop-up" and tried this three times: 2 hours after, 8 hours, and then the next day. Of course this is unofficial but I believe its reliable. Note: You need to actually submit your credit or debit card for this to work meaning you need to attempt to make an actual purchase. ***** A friend from out of state failed twice and each time right after the exam she was able to register and on the third try it gave her the "good pop-up" saying she cant register and a week later she passed. **** That's my two cents: Good Luck!!

    This is the username and password you used previously to apply online. It should have the forgot username/password link. I didn't remember it either and used that link.

    Do not be let down by this. You should however plan on your next step in becoming a registered nurse at a different school. At BHCC info session - she said you are allowed to apply a total of three times and after that you are no longer eligible. Also the average Teas Score that are usually accepted into the program is high 80s. Eventhouh your score makes the cut to apply to BHCC - in most schools it does not. At Northshore you need a minimum of 76 to even be considered. So I would study study study study and take the test again. I hope you don't give up.

    So guys - today the college was closed for Veterans Day but even so last year's applicants profile changed on November 6th and they got their letters on the 15th. Their application deadline and teas score deadline was fairly similar to this year as well. We just have to wait and keep each other updated once our profiles change "cross fingers".

    Hello Wagtr, I played around with my portal today and selected Nursing Day in my Program Eval then clicked on the catalog eval and in the top left corner it has the anticipated graduation date. But I am pretty sure it was always there, I never looked there because I assumed it was going to show up on the Program Eval screen right when I clicked on it. I then selected Nursing Evening just to see if it would stay the same and it did not, only Nursing Day has it.

    BHCC students and TEAS V Scores & discussion

    Hello Nikolk, At the nursing info session, the instructor stated that those who got accepted usually gets high 80s and above. However from looking at past posts I see a lot of applicants were accepted with high GPA and proficient teas score around 70 to low 80s. I think you have a good chance. Did your academic profile change by any chance?

    Hello WGATR, My profile has not been updated yet, however if you click on "My Educational Plan" - it should list the program you applied to. Mine says "AS.NRDAY Nursing Program Day Option" but no "anticipated graduation date".

    BHCC Spring 2016 Applicants

    Hi RVH084! I applied to the day program but I believe they also gave us the opportunity to pick the evening as an alternative? I looked at last year's threads and previous years and most stated that their profiles change around November 7-8th and others say end of November. But I imagine since the deadline for the Teas V was October 26 then the Nursing Committee would most likely meet a few days later to organize the grades and tests by ranks. I would be less anxious if my program evaluation reflected the program I applied to then at least it will set my mind at ease that I am being considered. Even though I called admissions, I can't help but feel like they kept rushing me off the phone and giving me the "yes your name is here (now leave us alone).
