I graduated from Beckfield in December of 2017. I have been unsuccessful 6 times. I saw a friend post on Facebook that she had just completed Nick’s CODEBREAKER class and after her being unsuccessful she finally did it and passed the NCLEX! I was excited to start Nick’s class I was ready to get started, I was ready for the challenge of being pushed hard for 6 weeks. Once the class started a lot just came back to me. Lots of review in a short amount of time but he really just makes sense of all of it and a light bulb starts going off. My Uworld scores on tests started to improve. My biggest hurdle is trying not to be so negative and hard on myself. I hate getting a low test score or feeling like this is all to over whelming but I’m thankful for Nick’s words of encouragement to keep me thinking positive and pushing hard.
2 weeks in and I’m starting to feel a bit anxious and overwhelmed that we only have 12 days left with Nick before my NCLEX. I am trying to stop, take deep breaths and not get to ahead of myself.
Week 3 and 4
Week 3 and 4 are here and I feel more overwhelmed than ever. Just that we don’t have a lot of class time left, not a lot of lecture content left to go over. But I’m trying to break down the questions and answers by saying why I wouldn’t pick that answer and explain the facts and evidence I know about that question. Nick has really helped me break down a question by taking my time and using my knowledge. I love the receptiveness because that’s what makes it stick, and then reviewing on my own time pieces it all together for me.
This is the first day of week 6
I test in 4 days. I am confident that I know this and that I am ready for NCLEX. My predictor that I took on Thursday I got a “very high” chance of passing. I answered the questions, went with my gut, and didn’t change my answers and I scored the highest I have scored on uworld. I am confident that this class works, and what Nick teaches you is relevant. I am so excited that the next thing I’ll be typing on this is my reflection of passing the NCLEX!
I passed my NCLEX! I AM COURTNEY SANDLIN, RN
I can’t believe it… I checked into my NCLEX early I wrote on my board, I will be a nurse today. Take your time and slow down. I answered my questions one at a time.. I was confident in myself and the knowledge I had. This was the first time I went in there positive and telling myself I know this, and I am capable of becoming a nurse. And omg I did the damn thing! I can’t believe it, I’m in shock.. when I wanted to give up because of feeling so defeated and hopeless and stupid I decided to give Nicks class a try and I’m so grateful I did. I will forever cherish his words of wisdom and the amazing things he taught me.
Thank you for everything Nick!
