greetings...

This morning I took my NCLEX-RN.... and after trying the PEARSON VUE TRICK... i got the GOOD POPUP.... Just wanted to share my own NCLEX experience...

Well for starters, I felt at a disadvantage the entire time since only 39% of internationally educated nurses pass the exam on their first take.... So with that statistical data in mind, i knew that I had to put it double time in my preparation.

So after graduating from college, I started filing all the necessary documents... (WHICH TOOK FOREVER!!!) and decided to try out the live Kaplan Class.... Hands down, that's the best review I've ever had.... mainly because you really have to be disciplined to follow your schedule and read on your own. So after finishing the 4 month program... I was STILL waiting for my elig/ATT.....

I decided to work so that I could pass the time while the paperwork was being processed... and the day I got my ATT, i filed for an immediate emergency leave of absence from work. That was the BEST decision I ever made throughout the course of my review.... I had 7 days a week to review (which at times was hard to stay focused, but the discipline that I learned at kaplan helped me get through it)

So during my self-study review... I did the following:

  • made a google calendar with various scheduled times to study certain topics...
  • did 150 to 200 saunders questions a day per topic..
  • read saunders and other materials for topics that i didn't get at least 75%
  • after finishing all topics by system, then I did 100 item exams a day for each nclex category (safe and effective, health promotion, etc)
  • did 200 items comprehensive for a week then reviewed all rationales....

Another thing that I did, ... the day before the exam, i went to St. Jude Church and prayed and lit some candles....

Thank God. and God bless everyone.
