Read title.

A bit of background, they finished school about a year ago and only just got to take the test last week due to events/covid. Now for the past couple months she was studying hard (as far as I know) using UWorld and I'm sure other resources. She went in on Tuesday and didn't really sleep at all and she didn't really even get to eat so I'm sure that didn't help. Currently she is at an all time low and I'm unsure how to help? Does anyone have advice or resources I could share with her so she'll be uplifted and prepared better for the test next time around? Sorry in advanced if this is messy/I'm not supposed to be posting here I just want to help her out the best I can.

It is SO stressful! It probably made it even worse for her to be out of school for that length of time and unable to take the test sooner. First off, good sleep and eating are a must! Second, the good news is she can take it again! I always kept reminding myself of that. It isn't the end of the world if she fails. Hopefully she picked up on what she may need to study/review more. How long was she studying each day? How many questions did she do? Did she read every rationale?! Those are all huge factors in a successful outcome.  What did her assessments tell her about where she was percentage wise and her likelihood to pass? If it was high and she failed then maybe it was more mental/emotional than her not actually knowing the material. It's very nice of you to try to help!

 

I just did my PN NCLEX Saturday sept 26 2020 iin California. The test closed at exactly 60 questons, I felt like the questions were more basic than the practice questions( UWorld, ATI) I have been studying. I did the PVT and I got the good pop up after 4, and 12 hours. However I feel that maybe the PVT may not work on weekends and I am so reckless thinking that I may not passed the test. Anyone that has any friend who has done the NCLEX on a weekend and still got the good pop up and not passed? please anyone? thank you

The good pop-up is not "official" results, but in all cases that I know to date, the good pop-up means that you passed! So if you could NOT reschedule your exam, then it most likely means you passed!

Have her reach out to me! I can definitely give her some EXPERT Tips that will make her feel better and get her on the right track to success!

I remember just using UWorld, and reading questions from that Lippencott(?) book every day for like a month. It was more than enough, I felt, to help me pass NCLEX.

Tell your hubby to not get down and just keep doing questions over and over...also make sure they understand the "why" behind each question they get wrong.
