Last week ( 07/11/2019) took my Nclex-RN and two days later got my result ( PASS ). This site has been very helpful in clarifying a lot of my doubts about Nursing school/work and what not. So I came back to post my own experience and in hopes of helping some people find answers to their question.
I graduated ADN program ( LPN/LVN - RN bridge - Helene Fuld college of nursing.NY) back in MAY 2019. Took a month off which I regret. but you know yourself better so if you need to take a break go for it but if you ask for my advice - take no more than a week following graduation.
As a student, I was an average student. I never memorize anything other than lab values and I try to study the concept behind any disease and stuff. I suck at pharmacology. so wanted to share that before anything.
I strictly used Uworld ( bought a one-month subscription), did 100 + question in a day, completed 2150 plus question in 23/24 days.
100 question in a day, did study mode and went with the system to system.
Read all the rationale wrong or right.
Saved rationales and created a flash card to review later and to review everything a day before nclex.
you can review saved flash card - system-wise as well. To create flash card either click on the diagram or just select rationales and save in flash card pops out.
On all my Study/exam mode. My lowest grade has been 48% and highest 65%. at the end of completion ( 2150 question ), my average was 58% on Uworld.
Didn't do their evaluation etc.
So took the nclex on July 11th and stop at 80 something. Nclex set up ( color wise) is very similar to Uworld which helps. I was just answering with the best of my understanding. Never felt confident enough about any of my answer. So after 80 something, it stopped and I walk out of the test in confusion and lack of confidence.
Did Pearson VUE trick right after using my real credit card,( you can do it by changing the expiration date ) had a good POP out. ( says I can't register at this time. ). Did after 2 hours and same good pop up, did after 8 hours same good pop up and did one more time after 24 hours and same good pop up. after 48 hours I purchase my quick result and it says I pass.
I thank everyone who has shared their opinion on this site. I will be happy to share my exp if anyone has any question. I started this writing suggesting it will be short and to the point. I think this is as short as it could be. Best wishes.
