    NCLEX RN exam 2018 - finished at 265q

    I had a very similar exam to you. I also balled my eyes out from the elevator to the car all the way home. I got 265q and thought I failed for sure. I felt like I knew nothing! I prayed when I got home and then did the PVT trick and Bam! I got the good pop. I was still very anxious for the next 24 hrs. Then I saw my license # on the BON page next morning Congratulations my dear! Chances are You passed! Try distracting yourself for the next 24-48 hrs. Go see a movie, walk around the mall, whatever makes you happy. I'll keep you in my prayers

    What makes one a "great nurse"?

    Hello everyone, Im entering the final semester of nursing school. After four long and hard years, I received GREAT news today. I will be in Labor/Delivery at a major teaching hospital in my area! Im so happy and excited to be on this particular unit. I was born there some 24 years ago. LOOL I wont tell anyone there! So what makes one a "great nurse"? I want to work on emulating some of these traits within myself

    What you learned in school vs on the job

    Yes, it a BSN program. About 89-90% of students who graduated from the school in 2015 passed on their first time. They do a good job of preparing us for the NCLEX as all our peds, med surg courses had NCLEX style questions

    What you learned in school vs on the job

    I am so glad you asked this question. I am a senior in my final year of nursing school, and I am in a "huh" phase. I am not sure why our program spends very little time on our practical nursing skills instead of theory and public health?? Last month, my cousin gave birth and I was in her L & D room looking at the fetal heart monitor strip and I actually didn't know how to read it. I went home cried my eyes out to my mom because I felt so incompetent. I am looking forward to hearing how nurses learned most of their nursing skills
