Welcome to the new year!!!!

Hey everyone!

I know I am late but welcome to 2013!!!!! The past couple of weeks has been a whirlwind for me! I am officially done with the BSN portion of my program 🙂 It feels great to be done! However, the work just begins! In order to work as an registered nurse(RN), you must pass a licensing exam called the NCLEX-RN. Everyone must take this exam in order to have the RN initials added to your name.

I have secluded myself the last couple of weeks as aI prepare for this exam. Let’s just say that I am TIRED of seeing multiple choice questions!!!!  On the NCLEX there is a total of 265 questions( multiple choice, select all that apply, drug calculations and diagrams). The best way to prepare for this exam is to practice questions over and over. It does become mentally draining so breaks are definitely needed and are very important!!!!   However I must get back to studying. Will do another post shortly 🙂
