Hello everyone!

I am preparing to take my nclex exam on Jan 28th. I have been studying and doing questions for the past 5 weeks. I have done approximatly 3000 questions total. I am currently finishing up the Lacharity book. I feel totally unprepared, my nerves are shot, and my husband and children are feeling my stress. My question is, is there anything I can do last minute to feel more prepared? Any specific thing to study... I guess Im just freaking out a little bit and I want to use these last few days of studying as best as I can. HELP LOL

RELAX. i did the same as you, and for 2 days before my exam, i totally relaxed with my family and friends and didn't even think about the test. i was shut off at 75 questions and passed, and i seriously think that taking a break from the studying helped me tremendously.

Nurse Jess:

I'm sure you will be fine! 75 QUESITONS!!! Dont panic.

NCLEX is not about how much you study and how much you know, it's all about how you approach the question! Think about the question and read each choice carefully and see if it pertains to the question! Do not rush, take your time reading and understanding the question first. Just remember NClEX is not there to fail you!

Best of Luck!!

Does anyone know how soon after taking the exam that we can try the PVT? I know the first thing I will do when I get home from taking my exam is check for the good pop up!

You can do it right away. As soon as you walk out of the testing center.

Remember most people pass the test on their first try (I think 85%). Go into it with confidence knowing that you have prepared as much as you could (and it sounds like you are definitely prepared!).

I also take the NCLEX next week, so that little pep talk above was for me too ;) good luck. you'll do great.
