The tentative oathtaking schedule for new nurses from the National Capitol Region who took the July 2010 Nursing Board Exam will be on September 20-21, 2010, as announced by the Professional Regulation Commission- Board of Nursing (PRC-BON).
Tickets to the oathtaking ceremony will be made available at the offices of the Philippine Nurses Association (PNA) following the release of the July 2010 Nurse Licensure Examination results.
The oathtaking schedule for July 2010 new nurses from Davao, Cebu, Zamboanga, Cagayan de Oro, Baguio, and other areas will be announced later.
In a few days, thousands of candidates will take the July 2010 Nursing Board Exam. And if you are one of the nursing hopefuls, be reminded that although you think you haver studied enough, preparedness for the July 2010 Nursing Board Exam involves other activities other than reviewing your notes. You also need effective test-taking strategies to increase your chances of doing really well in the Nurse Licensure Examination (NLE).
I have previously published a blog post on Effective Test-taking Strategies for those who will be taking the nursing exam. The test-taking strategies also include tips on Educated Guessing which will help you when answering difficult, unfamiliar, and generally out-of-this-world questions.
Also, do not forget to consume well-balanced meals and refrain from having spicy and oily food. You don't want to have gastric distress during the nursing board exam. Furthermore, you need to have adequate rest and sleep. If you feel you haven't covered everything yet, you can continue reviewing your notes until two days before the exam but get at least 8 hours of sleep everyday.
Lastly, you've got to believe that you have studied well for the July 2010 Nursing Board Exam. Good things do happen to people who strive hard to achieve their goals and those who face life's challenges with a positive attitude.
