One of the biggest obstacles to furthering your nursing career in America, is passing the NCLEX-RN exam, and it is CareerKnacks goal to always make sure that you feel prepared for every step of the process. Scrubs Magazine recently posted their suggested steps to NCLEX success and we wanted to pass those great tips on to you.
Have a Positive Attitude About the Outcome – Approach studying for your NCLEX exams with a positive attitude. This will help to keep you focused as you go over all of the material one last time. If you find yourself getting frustrated, walk away for a little while to refresh. You have the right to feel some stress, but make sure that it does not sabotage your results.
Eat and Sleep Right – Your physical state is just as important as your mental one when preparing for a life-changing test. In the weeks leading up to your exam date, maintain a healthy diet and sleep routine. This will actually work towards keeping your mind sharp and retaining information better, especially if you add bananas and some chocolate to your diet.
If you have a dream of becoming an RN in America, the NCLEX-RN® Exam is a critical step in this process. The NCLEX, also known as the National Council Licensure Examination is a standardized test to determine whether a candidate has the necessary skills to enter into a U.S. career in nursing.
According to the National Council of State Boards of Nursing, the four main areas covered in the NCLEX-RN® are:
#1 Safe, Effective Care Environment
#2 Psychosocial Integrity
#3 Health Promotion and Maintenance
#4 Physiological Integrity
