I just graduated in May, from RN school. I will be taking my boards on July 31. How should I study to pass the exam I have test anxiety. HELP PLEASE
If you check out the “nursing students unite” section of the forum, you will find a few threads already going on how to study for the nclex. Good luck. In the top corner of the page you will see a magnifying glass, you can use this to search for specific content you want to find on Mighty Nurse.
The day before the test I relaxed and didn’t study, for the week before the test I crammed two study books I bought from the bookstore into my brain. I don’t think they really helped me all that much, but I did pass with the minimum questions, so I wasn’t complaining. If you went through a decent nursing program, you should pass the test, so relax and don’t be your own worst enemy.
Many people suggest specific classes and books and programs … and education is always a good thing, but no matter how much or how little you study, it is going to come down to how calm you are when you take the test. Read the questions carefully. Do not assume what they are asking, but answer what they are actually asking. Throw out the obviously bad answers, and when there are more than one correct answer, pick the best one …. airway always comes before circulation.. Thankfully I didn’t have any of the “select all that apply” questions back when I took the test.
