Ok I heard this today at work ...y'all have probably heard it before but it got a laugh from me.....

Dr. says to his patient, "I have bad news and horrific news which do you want first?".

Patient replies, "I'll take the bad news first".

Doc says, " I am very sorry to tell you that you have only 24 hours to live".

Then the patient asks, "What possibly could be the the horrific news?".

Dr. tells the patient, "I forgot to call you yesterday".

Critical thinking....

That's the name of the game with NCLEX. It's not a fact based exam, oh don't get me wrong, facts are mixed into the equation but it's all about judgment and critical thinking and a dose of common sense.

Is it possible to study? Sort of. Review terms, values, anatomy, meds and diseases. Do as many NCLEX style questions you can tolerate and call it a day. You either know this stuff by now or you don't.

I have all day tomorrow to study. Then it's the day I have been preparing for for three years. (That felt odd to type did I punctuate it right? ...for for...)

Anyways, no pressure, noooo (insert sarcasm).

Results take 30 days to receive by mail after the exam.

I'm numb. Behave y'all. TTFN.
