Quick run down from a multiple test-taker

Graduated in 2006 and have taken NCLEX multiple times.

Uworld: the one review that worked for me because I could read the rationales of both my incorrect and correct answers.  The important think to do is remediation and make up exams from even your incorrect questions so you understand what you need to know.  The best think I kept in mind was that the NCLEX is making sure you are a safe practitioner.  You don't have to memorize all types of rare diseases.  Understand the concept of what how things affect the body.  I loved videos from RegisteredNurseRN.com and NurseJaxx (and c'mon, you need to watch Nurse Blake for laughs)

11/26/19 Exam in CA (I did 265 questions and took up all 6 hours)

11/27- PVT test 24 hours after exam = good pop up

Longest Thanksgiving vacation ever...

12/9 - just short of 2 weeks later, I realize "California-RN" is listed as a participating state for quick results!  I paid the $7.95 and received PASS unofficial results

(my name and license number still hasn't posted on Breeze)

12/13 - I called BRN (35 minutes wait) and a very nice person confirmed I passed the exam and that they will message the licensing department.  Shortly after, my name popped up on the Breeze site.

*** If you have failed the NCLEX before, don't give up!
