First of all, I am a new nursing graduate and I am currently taking up EMT-Basic. I am balancing my review for NCLEX-RN and the review for the EMT-B Registry. I plan to take the NCLEX-RN this January for the first time. Thanks y’all!

Get as many NCLEX review books as you can get your hands on. Look for the ones that have several comprehensive practice exams with full rationales for each answer and answer as many questions and read as many rationales as you can. Make studying the week before the exam your full-time job – try to answer at least 2000-3000 questions. And take the day before the exam off. If you didn’t learn it by then, you aren’t going to learn anything new in the 24 hours prior to testing. And you’re not going to know everything they could possibly ask no matter how much you study.
And remember, NOBODY feels confident that they passed the exam when they walk out of the test. Try not to freak out.
