This can help reduce your NCLEX anxiety


I hope this simple technique can help all of you. I am so sorry that the NCLEX has become such a point of anxiety after working so hard to get through the trials of nursing school.

Please try this technique. It is taught on by a nurse named Aila. EFT, Emotional Freedom Technique.

She is the best instructor ever. It only takes 10 minutes to learn and free of charge.

Dear cowgirl,

So sorry to hear about the NCLEX trouble. Please get what ever assistance you need to get past it. I have met a few who gave up and I was very sorry for them and felt it was such a waste of potential.

Like many, I am freaking out about taking the NCLEX. I'm having trouble sleeping, and I find myself waking up in the middle of the night thinking about NCLEX questions I had read earlier. In the day time when I try to study, I have trouble focusing - probably due to lack of sleep and extreme ANXIETY. I'm going to try this tapping method to reduce my anxiety and see if it'll help calm me down so that I can AT LEAST focus on studying. Let's hope it works!!

Reducing anxiety is an important part of taking the NCLEX. I was having so much anxiety, but the day before my test i watched some of my favorite shows, took a long hot bath, and went to sleep. I think it helped. :)

I feel that breathing and doing my yoga exercises is the best method to reduce my stress. I feel like a millions bucks after.

anxiety can make you forget everything that you studied and waste all your time during the exam. i was so nervous when i went to take my exam that all that went through my head was "i can't fail this".... and ended up failing it. but i will not give up. i will just study harder. and take a different approach.
