I feel the same way. My exam day is Monday!!!

Please, I know what your saying, but try to think of it as another practice test..all I did for the 3 weeks before was just questions and all rationales even the correctly answered questions...I can say this because it worked for me and I am in no way smart...I always have had to work hard...but practicing the priority questions was definetley the biggest help...

good luck..You CAN do it..

first of all congrats!!! for completing your nursing program, while some tests are looking to see what you are able to learn; the purpose of the nclex-rn and nclex-pn, offered by the national council of state boards of nursing (ncsbn), is to test your understanding of what you have already learned. therefore, the goal of the nclex is to use a standardized testing process to create an objective assessment of a test taker's knowledge and skills. in other words, it's more about what you know than your ability to solve clever puzzles. moreover, this is good news for those who are serious about being prepared, because it boils down to a very simple strategy. having said that, repetition and thorough preparation is a process that rewards those who are serious about being prepared, which means that succeeding on the nclex is within the reach of virtually anyone interested in learning the material. wishing you the very best of luck, keep us posted...ciao~

If you believe in God pray and leave the rest to him. God help those who help themselves and as long as you do your part and study I know he is just and faithful enough to help you pass. I will pray all of you taking the exam soon.:saint:

i feel the same way.but my exam will be tom pls pray for me.hoping and praying to pass the NCLEX-RN exam so that ill be an RN and start working..

To all of you future Nurses (and yes, you will be Nurses...power of positive thinking :nurse:..)

As a fairly new graduate myself...I took my NCLEX in Aug of 2010, I will share with you that there wasn't 1 in my class that felt confident of passing. We were all very nervous, some took it right away, others waiting.. thinking having more time to study would be advantageous. In the end, we all passed. I was one of the ones who thought waiting might be a little better and so my anxiety was just prolonged. With that said, my advice would be not to wait, take the test as soon as you can. You will probably walk away from the computer that day thinking you failed as we all did only to find out that you really did know your stuff. Hold your chin high and keep positive thoughts. Good Luck to you all

Oh, one last thing. Because I was anxious about testing and was afraid I wouldn't be able to get a good nights rest (tossing and turning...being afraid my alarm wouldn't go off..etc) the night before, I scheduled my test in the early afternoon. That worked really well for me.

I believe the practice tests are not designed for you to get a high grade. I did ATI and the very intelligent instructor said aim for at least seventy percent on your practice exams. Remember the NCLEX is not like nursing school you just have to pass not know everything.

Guys I believe in you. I have been praying these past few days for guidance and that He take away all our anxieties as being all panicky during the test won't help at all. I just want to share what I learned in mass last Sunday, "God wants us to use our talents/ abilities to HELP out others. He is happy when we use our knowledge, when we share it and do good things with what we have achieved. It is a MISSION, that when we are given something as special as a LICENSE, it means we got to repay God for the things he has given us." I believe you should pray and tell God that you are thankful for His gift to you, which is knowledge. Use your knowledge to help, to inspire, to push others to not give up. God will be happy that you have used His gift to you in a good way :)

Once again, will be praying for you guys. My Nclex date is yet to come and all my anxieties have gone to rest for I believe there is a plan for each and everyone, only He knows..

If it makes you feel better, I've also heard that getting 60% on Kaplan tests means you'll do well on NCLEX. I did not take Kaplan but a few of my friends did and said this is what their instructor said.

Take a deep breath. You will do fine. :)

Did you pass? What was your experience like?
