    Recent Grad: So Many Feelings...

    Hi everyone, I'm a recent grad, several months into my first job, and still fresh off orientation. Let me say I love my job, I love what I do, and I love my unit... but oh, the feelssssss... I know everyone talks about how hard the first year is, but it's hard whenever your in a low part not to think "this is because I suck, and I'm horrible". I have way more good days than bad, and everyone says it is ok to feel not good enough, that's how the beginning is until you gain experience and confidence. But how much of feeling like this is normal? Where is the line of, struggling as a new grad and struggling because you are horrible?

    UWorld percentile

    I got borderline scores, and I took the test last Monday and passed in 75.

    Ok, tough love time... I just passed in 75/76 (I don't remember anymore it's a little bit of a blur). Listening to everyone who says UWORLD is the best and just use that... you aren't everyone else, everyone needs to find what works for them. For me, I failed my Exit Exam, so I purchased the online Hurst review and I used UWorld for questions after reviewing content on Hurst. Funny part? I increased my general scores 25% points, and only made it halfway thru the Hurst review. But, it taught me how to approach and breakdown the questions, it taught me a different way to look at things and process the information, and that's what helped me pass. But, what worked for me, might not work for you. You need to see what your weaknesses were... and find a strategy for those difficult spots. I feel I've see a lot of people get so hung up on UWORLD and getting questions wrong, that they go crazy taking new notes and reviewing all their school notes. That's overload I feel... you need to know how to read the question (not in terms of language but in terms of NCLEX interpretation). Oh, my final UWORLD standing was 63 percentile! Sooooo....it's not bad, it's a great program with lots of great information, but it's not a cure all...

    I feel the same way, I had a bunch of SATA and some stuff out of left field, but, um, I feel like it was too easy? I went to 76 questions though... so I'm freakin' out! I got the "good" popup too, but also I know it isn't terribly reliable, and maybe I tried it too soon... ugh these 2 days are gonna be painful!!!
  13. SunshineNRainbows

    Freaking out!!!

    Pretty sure I just bombed NCLEX... only 76 q's and most seemed "easy", yeah there was a number of SATA but there was also what seemed like multiple similar q's. I'm terrified and these 48 hours are going to be painful!!!!
