If you're new here, you may want to subscribe to our RSS feed. One advantage of subscribing to RSS feeds is that you don't have to constantly re-visit this site to check for updates within specific sections you might be interested in because your browser or Feed reader will do this for you automatically on a regular basis plus you can even get email notification. Thank you so much. Enjoy!

1. Exercise! 30 minutes of brisk walking 3x a week will do. Exercise promotes circulation at the same time gives you energy to study for long periods of time. You will be surprise on how much energy you will have if you do regular exercise.

2. In your review session, I see people copying everything in the black board and does not anymore pay attention to the lecturer, try to listen more to what the lecturer has to say and just copy key points, remember you already took this up at school, the lecturer are only trying to refresh your mind. You will get lots of tips from your lecturer if you listen attentively that you could not find in textbooks.

3. When you get home, try to review what you have written down at review class.

4. Try to go over past board exam questions. Ex. Try to finish 300 questions weekly. It will improve your comprehension at the same time familiarize yourself on how they struture their questions.

5. Have a study partner and take turn to discuss specific areas to be reviewed (cardiovascular system, respiratory sytem, endo etc). As the saying goes "Two heads are better than one". If you can't concentrate at home because of distractions, try the coffee station, library or even go to the beach to study.

6. Make your mnemonics. Post it all around you- in the bathroom, bedside table, in your bag , in the car etc.

7. Focus more on Psychiatric, Maternal Nursing, Community Nursing and Research. Drugs are rarely asked in the Nursing Board Exam. Try to also go over some Nclex questions regarding prioritization. Remember, questions in the exam are to test your competence if you are qualified for an ENTRY LEVEL NURSE only.

8. Try to avoid fatty foods. Drink Vitamin B complex, it helps in blood circulation and better memory.

9. Recommended books are Carl Balita textbooks, Community Health Nursing, passed board exam questionnaires.

10. Think Positive! Love and pamper yourself because it will reep all benefits in the end.

11. It helps if you can group together and ask each other questions. It speeds up learning.

12. Decide on a study habit. Ex. 1 hour daily before you sleep.

13. If you are wondering, "What if i made a mistake shading the wrong box, should i go ahead and erase it and shade the correct one?" What i did was, if I know the correct answer and that I shaded the wrong box, i went off and corrected my answer. BUT, you have to make sure to shade the back portion also so that it will not create dent. Worked for me.

14. Pray! It can it really do wonders...

Salamat sa mga payo ninyo.. To all who wishes to take the NLE this coming November 2009.. Let me share with you some text in the bible which increases my potentials and courage us to passed the NLE November 2009 because of this message from GOD. Mark 11:24 the LORD said "Therefore I say unto you, whatsoever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye recieve them, and ye shall have them." All promises of God are true, the only thing we do is believe his power to do things. Another text found in Jeremiah 33:3 Jesus said "Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not." Besides He always there for us all the time.. Friend join with me in Prayer every 12:00 in the noon and 12:00 in the evening for our dreamed to passed exams.. Start today and you see the miracles.
