    I FINALLY passed NCLEX last week!  I hadn't posted my sucess story because we are still celebrating!! I graduated nursing school in 2010, took the NCLEX 9 times!! Ouch, yes! Lots of money and lots of emotions! It was all in God's timing though.  I prayed for over a year for when to take it again, he gave me the go ahead so I signed up for Hurst Revew! I have taken ATI, Kaplan, NCSBN and Hurst Review and used too many books to talk about. This is the first time I did Hurst Review to its entirety!! Do exactly what Aunt Marlene and her wonderful instructors say and you will be successful also! Don't skip one step of hers! Print out the study guide and the Testing Strategies pages, I ready those daily and checked the study guide off as I went along. I have been out of school for a while so I had to do a few of her steps multiple times until I could lecture out loud using skimpy notes. Her study plan works if you don't skip one step!!! Just pray and be ready to put the time in! I am a wife, a mother and I work full time! My husband is wonderful support! Make you a study plan and stick too it! It does take a lot of time to do but it's worth it!!! If i did this have being out of school for 5 years, you can too!! Trust Aunt Marlene! Do exactly what she says and you will be successful also! I love Hurst Review!! Just Do IT!!!!!! =) =) THANK YOU AUNT MARLENE AND THE HURST INSTRUCTORS!! YOU ALL ARE WONDERFUL!!!

    Just want to pass some good news on to the staff at Hurst and say a very heart-felt thank you. I graduated from nursing school in May 2013 and felt that I really hadn't learned a whole lot. Part of our exit process was to take the NCLEX review presented by ATI. I walked out of their live review and thought to myself, "What a waste of time that was!". I took the NCLEX the first time a few months later and failed. I studied for 9 months on my own, took the test again, and again failed. After failing the second time I realized that I had to do something totally different or I never would pass the NCLEX. That is when I contacted Hurst. I got the online review and started going through the package in January (2015). My plan was to take the test in late March or early April. Well, I procrastinated getting my paperwork in to the state and finally wound up taking the test this past Tuesday (May 19, 2015). Last night (May 20th) I got notice from the state that I am now a Registered Professional Nurse!!!! The thing that I found outstanding about the Hurst Review is the down-to-earth way they present the information. The absolute turning point for me was the way they taught me to quit trying to memorize facts, and start critically thinking about how everything related. This critical thinking process was earth shattering when I started to apply it! My background is in engineering where A + B is always equal to C. Nursing has been hard for me to adjust to because here A + B might equal C, or D, or M, or X. Oh, by the way, I celebrated my 63rd birthday on Monday before taking the test on Tuesday! Who said an old dog can't learn new tricks? Once again, Thank you Aunt Marlene and all of your crew!
