Taking the NCLEX July 3rd and super nervous !!

Im taking the nclex in 1 day and half and im super nervous. The anxiety and the fear is settling in and i cant seem to study anymore. Sigh... i really really hope i do alright on this exam... I know everyone says not to study the day before but im so nervous i dont know if i can do it. Ive been waking up every now and then from my sleep just to look up lab values, info that i cant seem to remember in my dreams. LOL. I hate this feeling. I might have to admit myself to the psychiatric hospital after this exam lol.

I just took it on June 20. I passed in 75 questions. I too was extremely anxious, couldn't eat, couldn't sleep, etc.

DO NOT study the day before the exam. Rest, eat a good meal, and let everything settle.

I took Hurst Review (and studied their core content one chapter a day for two weeks) and I did 5 of their "Q-Reviews" and read every single rationale that came with the questions in the QReviews. That helped me the most, learning how to answer NCLEX style questions.

Read every single word in the question, SLOWLY. Then ask yourself...

"What is the problem?"

"What are they wanting from me?"

Then choose an answer. After you choose an answer, make sure it relates back to the problem and what they are wanting from you. I did that for every single question, it took me two hours, but I passed!

Good luck, just breathe. :)

We both have the same test day. What materials did you use to study for your exam? I may study for half a day then be over with it!

Thanks guys! Im going to take the readiness for kaplan in the morning, go over allnurses. Study guide and then rest the rest of the day. I really hope i can pass as i have an internship starting the following week that requires me to be licensed. If i don't pass, then i lose the job. I think that's y i feel sooo pressured!

I love hurst! it helped give me a better understanding of materials and build a core content. Then i used kaplan. I thought the decision tree was a waste so i am just using the kaplan question trainer. Crossing my fingers! Ill also pray for all that's taking the test soon!

Trying my best to stay positive but its so nerve wrecking no matter how much i try. I think Im going to have to get a massage to.arrow just to.calm my nerves. Lol

Tkm2005- Ty for the tips! I did realize i drastically increased my score on q trainer 6 for kaplan just by slowing down and looking at each answer and eliminating and narrowing down. So i am going to keep reminding myself to slow down, and take breaks. I an usually a quick test taker that makes stupid mistakes but i know i cant afford mistakes this time so i am going to breath like u said. Im going to look like a pregnant women practicing relaxation techniques to successfully produce a healthy test result. Lol

i took my readiness i got a 66% on it.
