Your Test Time Brain Fog and Other Issues

I’m sure everyone has experienced the agony of passing your first Nursing Examination or even getting through it all. You are fully prepared and confident for the test, you think you have done all you can, and yet somehow still fail. You can probably blame it on the nerves and stress of the situation. Maybe you were a little late, maybe you weren’t as focused as you could have been, or maybe you just didn’t drink enough water. No matter what the reason, you know now what happens next. So what do I do now?

Don’t worry, I have solutions! First off, I know how this feels. So many people don’t just join a group or class right away, they want to take their nursing exam as soon as possible so they can start working immediately. The good news is that this isn’t necessary.

The next best thing you can do is relax and enjoy the process, focus on taking one section at a time and try not to rush through it. The idea is to study, so make sure you take quality time studying. The reason most people don’t pass their exams is because they rush through and skip parts or even read the wrong things. It’s important to learn how to study, so take time and don’t worry about making it through all of the sections on time.

I also recommend finding a quiet place to take the exam. If you feel nervous, you will distract yourself from what you should be focusing on which is studying and answering questions. Make sure your room is clean, quiet, and ready for study. This will cut down on mistakes that might happen during the exam!

Next, if you have questions about test time breakdown don’t just go and find someone to talk to! Chances are you are going to have to spend a lot of time going over this stuff, so get good answers to your questions. You don’t want to waste your time explaining the differences between these two options.

Lastly, make sure you are getting enough sleep. A lot of people don’t realize this but studying really does affect your ability to remember things. Not enough sleep can really mess up your study hours, so make sure you are getting plenty of rest before you go to bed. Also make sure you are drinking plenty of water. Your body and mind need water to function at their highest level!

The last thing is to have fun! If you prepare properly and don’t stress out too much, then this process will go very quickly. Remember that anything you learn can be applied to real life situations. So try not to think too much about what you learned in class, focus on what you can do now and what you can expect in the future.

Having a successful test time with tea will be a great memory builder. You will probably find that you remember much more than you normally do when you are nervous. Make sure you aren’t afraid of your exam and keep your cool. These tips will help you remember your information better and improve your chances at passing!

Most students do not take the time to get proper hydration. The last thing you want to be doing before you go to the administrative area to get your test results is drinking a cold beer or two. Getting the proper hydration before you test can really help you out. This is something that should be a big part of your tea drinking strategy, especially if you are taking notes.

Teas also have the ability to slow down your response times. This is why it is best to take a multi-tasking drink like a Powerade or Vitamin C. You can put this down, focus on something else for a few seconds, and then bring it back to your attention. This way, you won’t lose your train of thought or be so distracted by other things that you forget to do your homework. This time breakdown can also apply if you have to speak over someone else.

If you are going to be at work, make sure to keep a good pace. Don’t try to do the work at night time; if you have to do it in the middle of the night, make sure you go about it in a reasonable amount of time. Your test time will be less stressful if you are properly prepared and hydrated when you show up!
