Life is full of ups and downs that will test your resilience. But take heart! The lessons you will learn from the ups and downs will only make you stronger. The deepest pains become our greatest strength.
If you win at everything you do in life, you might be happy, but you may not have developed the strength you need to face any struggles that might come your way. The struggles of our daily life make us strong. The hardship, the pain, and the hurt of everyday life, that you go through and still did not give up; these makes you stronger each day. So, when you’re in the middle of a hardship you think you may not get out of, don’t give up, and look for the lesson in each moment. You are building up the strength for the next day!
Tip #1 – Study to understand, keep memorizing to a minimum.
Good students don’t always study more than other students. They just know how to manage their time, concentrate fully and effectively while studying. Students often express frustration about how much they have to study and how quick they forget. You just get it and forget it. At times like that, it’s important to remember that the NCLEX is an exam that test critical thinking and how well you can apply what you learned in school to a potential nursing situation. So, to prepare for such an exam, understanding of contents is absolutely important. When you understand a topic or a section, it becomes a part of you. If you get it and really understand it; it will be hard to forget it.
Concentrate during your study time – be sure to maintain your attention and focus without distractions. You may not want to hear this, but it’s very important to identify any distraction or disturbance that can make it hard for you to concentrate, then find a way to get rid of the distraction so you can understand what you study. At that point, if you are still having a hard time studying, an NCLEX review class can help you to tame the information you’re given in your textbooks and apply it to the exam. At Rophem, we host interactive classes with content mastery, test taking strategies, and critical thinking exercises designed to guide students step-by-step to pass the NCLEX.

Bowed but not Broken!
I remember receiving a phone call from a woman one afternoon. She sounded so disappointed and unhappy because her dearly beloved son had failed his exam. Her son was devastated and was ready to quit. After about half an hour conversation with him, I was able to convince him that he needed to bounce back; that was not what he expected to hear from me.
So many times in life, bad things happen as you are trying to move on to your destiny. Remember, you can be resilient. Tell yourself – Okay, I have to be strong and healthy. Know that you are stronger than you think or believe.
Seasons change and that’s natural. So as you try again, and be strong, you will discover the great plans that God has in store for you.
Rise Up. Try Again. Be Resilient.
