Taking NCLEX on Monday!!!

Hey Everyone!

I am taking my boards in 2 days and am terrified!! I am trying really hard to relax and not get all worked up about it but I can't sleep without thinking about it and dreaming about it and I woke up today with a horrible stress headache. I am terrified that I am going to be physically ill when it comes time to take the test!!

I have studied my but off and have improved my practice test scores since I started studying 8 weeks ago but I still have the feeling in the back of my mind that I will fail. I know that you must be positive about the test and I have been telling myself everyday that I will pass--I'm not sure that I believe it though. I just can't let my husband and kids down--they have sacrificed so much for me already.

Any tips about the test or relaxing before and during the exam would be greatly appreciated. If God wants me to be a nurse, then I will pass. I know that I have done as much as possible on my end--now it's up to Him.

Thanks!!

I don't have to give you a tip because you already know the best one!

Good luck and you are in my prayers!

I'm 100% confident that you will do well in NCLEX. Like you said, "I have studied my butt off". Just go into that exam knowing that you will PASS. Everyone gets cold feet when testing is around the corner. You made it through Nursing school........ You can make it through the NCLEX.

Good Luck. Let us know how things went. :)

Well, I took my boards this morning. I am SO glad that is over with!! I got 75 questions--which is what I thought I would get for some reason. I guess I wasn't surprised when the test shut off but I still felt like crying!! The 2 1/2 hour drive didn't help. I kept thinking aout every possible scenario. I couldn't even tell you if I got the last question right-I think I blocked it out.

The wait is going to kill me!! Do you know of anyone who failed at 75? O am so unsure.

Thanks for your thoughts and prayers!!! :)

I just got home about an hour ago from taking the test and also got 75 questions. Not a clue how I did but I will keep my fingers crossed for both of us.

i took my nclex exam today. i only got 2 hrs of sleep. i could not sleep last night. i decided to continue studying. i'm not sure if this was such a great idea. i had about 260+ questions. i am not able to determine if i have passed or fail this exam. i just dread finding out that i have failed because i studied sooo hard and put in so many hours preparing for the exam. however, i must admit, nclex caught my weakness --- pediatrics and medication. it was sooo awful because some of the medications on the exam, i've never heard of! the next few days will be the hardest!
