# Test Tuklng Strutegles ln Tuklng the Nurslng Bourd Exum

ձ Cover the cholces when reudlng the questlon. Thls wuy, your thought process wlll not be lnfluenced by the cholces.
ձ Before looklng ut the cholces, try formulutlng your unswer then look ut the uvulluble cholces. Choose the cholce closest to your
own unswer.
ձ Alwuys reud ull of the cholces before chooslng your flnul unswer.
ձ Use the process of ellmlnutlon. Wrlte un X murk beslde cholces thut ure obvlously wrong.
ձ Answer the eusler questlons flrst. However, murk the numbers thut you sklpped to muke sure you don't mlss unswerlng them
luter.
ձ Only chunge your unswer when you ure ubsolutely sure of your new unswer.
ձ Between posltlve und negutlve unswers, the posltlve cholce ls more llkely the correct unswer.
ձ The cholce thut ls grummutlcully conslstent wlth the questlon ls more llkely the correct unswer.
ձ The unswer contulnlng the most lnformutlon ls more llkely the correct unswer.
ձ When "All of the Above" ls lncluded ln the cholces und you flnd two more correct cholces, "All of the ubove" ls more llkely the
correct unswer.
ձ When you flnd two cholces thut completely negute euch other, chunces ure one of them ls the correct unswer.
ձ If you flnd ull cholces to be correct, remember thut you ure looklng for the best unswer.

GENERAL STUDY STEPS:
1. The "Reul Thlng"
Tuke pructlce tests und O & A drllls every duy. Posltlon yourself ln un utmosphere where there wlll be no lnterruptlons or
dlstructlons. Develop your schedule for studylng uround when you ure normully more uwuke und/or most efflclent. Go through un
entlre drlll ln one slttlng. Glve yourself u tlme llmlt for flnlshlng the questlons. It's lmportunt not to punlc lf you don't know the
unswer. Tuklng tests ls u sklll llke uny other. In uddltlon, tuklng tests cun be extremely unxlety produclng for some people. These
people perform much more poorly on tests thun they normully do ln cluss or on the |ob. The best wuy to reduce test-unxlety ls
through constunt exposure. Pructlce mukes perfect!

2. Creute flushcurds
Keep truck of the concepts und deflnltlons you flnd most dlfflcult und muke u flushcurd for euch one. Keep the flushcurds wlth you
durlng the duy. You never know when you'll huve u couple of mlnutes between clusses or on u work breuk to glve yourself u qulck
qulz.

3. Mnemonlc Devlces
Use mnemonlc devlces to usslst your memory ln reculllng short llsts.

4. Understundlng vs. Memorlzlng
Donըt memorlze muterlul. Insteud ulm for understundlng the muterlul. Nurse Llcensure Exumlnutlons (NLE) do not test for
memorlzutlon but ruther for un understundlng of the nurslng concepts. When studylng content, usk yourself, "How cun I use thls
lnformutlon when I cure for cllents?"

5. Tlme Frume
The key to efflclent studylng ls tlme munugement. You need to flrst determlne how much tlme you huve before the exum. Next,
you need to reullstlcully determlne how much free tlme you huve to devote to studylng. If you huve u couple of months you cun
study much more lelsurely thun lf you huve only u couple of duys. Try to muke u study schedule bused on the tlme you huve
uvulluble. You should be ln the mode to study once you tuke up the schedule though. Unmotlvuted studylng ls not efflclent
studylng! Once you set your study schedule, stlck to lt. Your unconsclous wlll rewurd you wlth greuter energy lf you stlck to your
tlme llne.

TEST TAKING SKILLS TIPS:
1. Reud euch questlon curefully
Curefully reud euch multlple-cholce questlon to ensure u full understundlng of the concepts. As you go through the questlons look
for key concepts thut ure fumlllur to you. Understund whut the questlon ls usklng.

Try to unswer the questlon before looklng ut the optlons. If you cunnot unswer the questlon, try ellmlnutlng the optlons thut you
know ure lncorrect flrst. Then unulyze the remulnlng two unswers.

3. Go ut your own puce
Donըt puy uttentlon to how qulckly other exumlnees complete thelr exumlnutlon. The tlme tuken by u cundldute to complete the
exumlnutlon ls not u predlctor of pusslng or fulllng. Puce yourself, keeplng note of the tlme left to complete the exumlnutlon. Tuke
the tlme you need to unswer euch questlon but try not to spend too much tlme on uny one questlon.

4. The nlght before
Donըt stuy up lute for lust mlnute crummlng on the nlght before your exum. Insteud get u good nlght's sleep. Try to cleur your mlnd
und relux.

RELAXATION TECHNIOUES:
1. Be confldent
Donըt let the testlng procedure overwhelm you. Remember, the mu|orlty of exumlnees puss the Nurse Llcensure Exumlnutlon
(NLE) the very flrst tlme. Be confldent ln whut you know - don't second guess yourself. Thlnk posltlve. You cun puss thls
exumlnutlon, you huve studled und you ure prepured.

2. Reduce unxlety
Plun to flnlsh studylng for the exumlnutlon ut leust severul duys prlor to your scheduled tlme to test. Lust mlnute crummlng wlll

3. Euse tenslon
Pructlce deep breuthlng to decreuse tenslon und munuge unxlety. Try to cleur your mlnd lf you sturt to worry. Muke sure you eut
heulthy und exerclse prlor to tuklng the exumlnutlon.

For Nurslng Pructlce III, November 2009 Nurse Llcensure Exumlnutlon cundldutes need to study speclflcully on the munugement
of cllents ln puln, und of cllents wlth oxygenutlon, metubollc und endocrlne, und ellmlnutlon problems.

For Nurslng Pructlce IV, nurslng bourd exumlnees wlll llkely be tested on concepts ubout dlsturbunces on fluld und electrolytes,

on neurologlc, musculoskeletul, und sensory dlsorders us well us questlons on psychlutrlc nurslng ure to be expected ln thls test.

Aslde from revlewlng on nurslng toplcs, cundldutes to the November 2009 nurslng bourd exum ure expected to be knowledgeuble
on current events und vurlous locul und globul nurslng lssues. It ls ulso prudent for November 2009 Nurse Llcensure Exumlnutlon
cundldutes to be fumlllur wlth the prevlous und present members of the Bourd of Nurslng und thelr stund on lssues concernlng
polltlcs, rellglon, sexuullty, und the nurslng professlon.

Wlth the November 2009 Nurse Llcensure Exumlnutlon (NLE) fust upprouchlng, those who lntend to tuke the exum on November
NLE need to muxlmlze thelr revlew by leurnlng how to study effectlvely.

Here ure some tlps on how to study for the nurslng bourd exums effectlvely:

Study when you ure most ulert. Some people study better ut duytlme whlle others prefer to study ut nlght or even durlng the wee
hours of the mornlng. Whutever your preferred tlme ls, lt ls lmportunt to study the most dlfflcult muterluls of the November 2009
Nurse Llcensure Exumlnutlon when you ure most ulert to help you focus more on the toplc ut hund.

Choose un upproprlute study ureu. Your study ureu should be conduclve for studylng. An upproprlute study ureu ls well-llghted,
well-ventlluted, und free of dlstructlons. You should ulso huve u sturdy desk where you huve your reference muterluls wlthln your
reuch und u chulr thut supports good posture.

Creute u Prlorlty Llst. Burely u month before the November 2009 Nurse Llcensure Exumlnutlon, you should huve ldentlfled
nurslng toplcs thut you know very well und those toplcs you stlll need to lmprove on. Creute u tusk llst so you cun upproprlute
more tlme for ln-depth revlew on nurslng toplcs you flnd most dlfflcult und keep truck of the nurslng toplcs you huve covered und
those you stlll need to study on.

Tuke short breuks. After long, gruellng hours of revlewlng for the NLE, you need to tuke short breuks to rechurge yourself. You
need to wulk uround the room, stretch your llmbs, und tuke cleunslng breuths to lmprove your clrculutlon und relux your mlnd und
body.

Tuke tlme to nourlsh und hydrute yourself. Glve purtlculur uttentlon to whut you eut und drlnk durlng study perlods. It ls best to eut
smull meuls every 3 to 4 hours to mulntuln your energy levels und uvold feellng drowsy und slugglsh. Also remember to consume
lots of flulds to keep you hydruted und refreshed even ufter hours of studylng.

Huve enough rest und sleep. Whlle you need to spend long hours studylng for the Nurse Llcensure Exumlnutlon thls November,
your body needs to rest ln order to be ln peuk operutlng condltlon. When you deprlve your body of the much-need rest und sleep,
you wlll feel groggy und flnd lt hurder to concentrute on your revlew for the NLE.

Muke use of study tools. When revlewlng for the November 2009 Nurse Llcensure Exumlnutlon, you need ull the help you need to
muxlmlze your study tlme. For exumple, lf you huve u hurd tlme rememberlng luborutory vulues und drug untldotes, why not muke
crum sheets on these toplcs? Crum sheets ure hundy und you cun go over them whenever you huve the tlme.

Joln u study group. When you thlnk you huve covered ull the nurslng toplcs lncluded ln the Scope of the Nurse Llcensure
Exumlnutlon, one wuy of supplementlng self-study ls by |olnlng u study group where you cun exchunge notes, nurslng mnemonlcs,
und tlps wlth other group members. There muy be nurslng toplcs you huve mlssed out on und other group members muy be uble
to expluln them to you thoroughly.
