Taking NCLEX tomorrow (7/10)... Surgery on Wednesday!

Nursing Students NCLEX


Hi everybody!

You all have been so inspiring reading your stories everyday about passing or trying again. :heartbeat After 6 years of college/nursing school (part-time & a surprise baby mid-way, lol) I finally graduated in May 2012. Out of 96 of us that started clinicals together, only 32 of us made it all the way!

I have been studying for about 6 wks or so. I have completed all of the Kaplan Q trainers, Q bank, sample tests. I got a 62% on QT 4 and QT 5. And a 68% on QT 6 and QT 7. I finished 100% of the qbank with 64% correct. I did all of the LaCharity questions and scored between (60-80%) on them. And yesterday I did the NCLEX 4000 pre-test and got a 71%. I have also been working on sample tests from NCSBN and I have gotten in the 70's on them as well. I hope that I am ready. My biggest goal was to be able to walk into NCLEX knowing that I had done my best to prepare - and I think I have.

I am sooooo nervous though! Ugh! It's making me nauseous! :barf02: I know that we should rest the day before NCLEX - which was what I was going to do... but I can't. Not yet anyways! I am going to just do some more practice questions (alternate format) on NCLEX 4000 and then read over the All Nurses Study Guide (not endorsed by allnurses.com, lol). I will stop at 3pm and THEN relax! I don't expect to learn anything new today! Just want to practice some of the SATA - since they are the baine of my existence!

Wish me luck! And good luck to anyone else testing today or tomorrow! :)

I will let you know how it goes tomorrow!

Ps. Also please cross your fingers that my total thyroidectomy completion surgery goes well on Wednesday! (And yes, I am crazy to schedule both things back to back :banghead:- but I really wanted to be done studying by the time my surgery came up because I knew I wouldn't be into at that point. And I want to enjoy some of the summer with my 3 daughters before it's over!) Anyways, I was diagnosed with Papillary Cancer :crying2: in June after having a large tumor removed at the end of May! My thyroid was found to be enlarged at a routine exam a week into my final semester and I had the first surgery the week after graduation! When it rains.... it pours, huh?

I think I am due for some good news! Thanks again! :) :loveya:

Goodluck to your EXAM and Keep you in Prayer for your SURGERY on WNESDAY!:)

Sounds like you are well prepared! Good luck on the test and the surgery! God bless!

Good Luck on your exam. My thoughts and prayers will be with you during your surgery and recovery

Thank you all very much! I am so nervous! I finished the 6 sample tests from NCSBN with a 72% average. I think I am done. I'm just going to relax and read over the allnurses study guide. It's going to be a bad night for sleeping, LOL!

Good luck! I just took mine today, I hope the results are good. I was so nervous!

Thank you! mrsks: did you you try the PVT???

Yes I tried it and got the good pop-up but honestly I feel like I did so horribly I am not believing it until I know the official results!

I think what your feeling is normal! I have never seen the PVT to be wrong - so I say you PASSED!!! I will do the happy dance for you till you get your confirmation!!! :yeah:I am sure I will feel the same way tomorrow!
