Taking NCLEX-RN in 2 days! Can you all give me suggestions

Nursing Students NCLEX


on how to study? I want to review medications for sure, and didn't know if there were any good websites geared specifically towards medication questions for the NCLEX. I also am looking for any other advice from people who've taken the test! I'm excited, but nervous! I never thought I'd make it through school, and here I am getting ready for boards!

Thanks everyone for the advice in advance. Wish me luck! :)

2 days before the test. Even most strategy type study guides such as Kaplan recommend that you don't study the day before the test, but rather go out and have fun (don't get drunk of course, but go to a movie or something). If you don't know it by now, you're not going to know it. Relax and take a deep breath is my advice as someone who passed NCLEX on the 1st try with only 75 questions. Good luck.

LOL. I realized after I posted that it sounded like I haven't studied yet. I have been studying for weeks, just wanted to see if anyone had any specific suggestions. I probably won't study the night before, but just wanted to see if there were any last minute things I might not have thought to look at.

Thanks ;)

If you've studied you need to just try to relax. You've done what you can for now. Good Luck.

Breath! I would the night before just relax your brain. If you don't know it by then, you won't know it when the test comes the next day. Get plenty of rest the night before. Make sure you eat breakfast and drink plenty of water. that way you are hydrated and not hungry going into the darn thing.

When I took it I felt like I didn't know anything. I had drugs that I had never heard of. I guessed on those. Then I got a lot of select all that apply, which those suck. When I was done with the test i felt like i FAILED. I was sure that I failed it. It took me only 45 minutes and 75 questions.

Afterwards I did the pearson vue trick (which there are many threads on the thing) and it made me feel a little bit better that I may have passed.

You will do great. Just relax and don't over think or analyze the question or the answers.

I did not know at the time, but I was pregnant and embarissingnly had to step out to use the bathroom at least 3 times during my 75 question test. Believe me I thought I was not only way too nervous, but that I failed. I have now been a nurse +3yrs. and have been appointed charge nurse/ preceptor/ you name it. Have faith. You can do it!

I reiterate what was stated above. Advice I received. Don't study the day before the test. Believe me it's hard not to. I sat with books and notes in front of me, but I overcame the temptation. I was already nervous enough haha. I and everyone in my class passed 1st time.

I recommend a hot tub and/or massage!

Good luck!

I agree with what everyone else says! Chill out...and I promise you, if you studied medications all day, everyday...you will get medications that you haven't heard of! Be confident that you know a lot of important medications already...take a deep breath, eat well, great sleep, and attack it full force.

I will tell you something else. Trust the PearsonVue Pop-up Trick, for sure...I was hysterical after my 75 Question test but a couple hours later, got the good pop-up, 48 hours later, RN! You can do it! Believe in yourself and your critical thinking abilities!

Good luck!

With two days left, you should be ready. Good luck.
