Hey my AN family!!!!

Have y'all ever just been SO sick of studying?!? I mean it's super annoying right now! šŸ˜” I take my NCLEX-RN next week and I've been studying tough for about 3 weeks!!!

What was your MAIN FOCUS the last week leading up to the test?!? Just curious.

I studied for 3 weeks straight for 8-10 hours a day week before exam I took a lil road trip just to relax. I didn't really worry about studying I just did questions on my phone from free NCLEX apps like ATI, NCLEX mastery and Lippincott's.

Join the club. I understand because I feel the same way. Studying and you still feel like you don't know anything. It is our mind playing tricks on us. Now I am just reading through the study guides and learning lab values. Also, listening to the Hurst lectures on mp3 when I go jogging.

How did you get your Hurst lectures on mp3?

Use your phone and type in hurst review Neuro or any topic on mp3. All and any topic Marline lecture on is there. Type in Endocrine, fluids and electrolyte, Pediatrics or any other area in nursing on mp3.

It's like you took the words right out of my mouth! I'm soooooo sick of studying!!!!! I feel like I've been studying for hours, days, months and I still don't feel prepared! I'm testing next week, so I think my plan will be to go over my notes, ATI materials, lab values, and keep doing questions from LaCharity. Good luck to you!

Thank you so much just download it. I took the live review course a couple weeks ago and wanted a way I could still listen or watch the videos on the go after the 14 days

You will get it!!! Rest your brain for a few days and get back into it at a pace that's good for you! I can't study for hours and hours a day because I can't retain much! Lol!
