The Calm Before the Storm…

Today was a good day off. I did my quota of N-CLEX questions and was even able to take a nap. Some of my cohortmates have up to 5 days off at a time… the most I’ve had so far is 2. I don’t want to complain, but since this is my blog, I’m going to.

Man, I wish I had 5 days off in a row.

Wish I could say this and mean it!

Ok. Enough of that.

The N-CLEX training questions are showing me just how much more I need to do. It’s scary to think that in just a few months, I’ll sit down and test for my license. Sure, I get multiple shots at passing, but my plan has always been to pass the first time. In order to do that, I need to score a LOT better on these practice tests.

People keep telling me, “Oh, don’t worry… you’ll pass for sure!” Although I appreciate the support, I know that the more confident I am, the greater the chance of failing. So I’ve got to keep plugging away at these questions until I am consistent with my scoring. There are times when I score up to 85% correct, but then on the next round, I get a whopping 30%.


If I can keep it above 80%, then I’ll feel ready. I’ve got a loooooong way to go.

But that’s all part of the game.

I work the next 3 days. Today’s the calm before the storm… better make the best of it.

    Just wondering, what is NCLEX? We don’t have that here, we just have to pass all the units in the degree and all our placements. Two more exams and one more 4 week block, and then I can apply to register. What you have to do sounds more like what the med kids do here.
