Hi Everyone, this is my first time here in the forum, Iam from the Los Angeles area. I just wanna ask advice from you guys. I recently took my first time nclex-pn last Dec.2004 and failed it
, I am so frustrated and shattered, I thought I did good but the result says all the areas are "near passing" and not one single area passed. Iam not sure if I want to take retest, I feel paranoid that I will fail it again. I studied materials from Saunders, Mosby and Lippincotts and just failed it. Do you think I still have a chance? I am thinking maybe nursing is not for me, I am a very caring, responsible and hardworking person but maybe I lack "book/brain" talents, I have finished LVN school for a year and now I am still unemployed especially I didnt pass the boards. I am looking for any related job while doing my reviews at home to retake the exam who knows when, I applied for CNA but they require certification and I don't have one, I request an interim permit from board of nursing and they said I can't coz I already took an exam, I applied for caregivers, companions and home health aide but I feel $50 per 12 hour shift($4.16 /hour) is really desperate and said they need a female not male. From this point I dont know what I should do, I am thinking to change career again or maybe not, please help me with any advise, thanks guys!

Sorry I wasnt able to reply to your post on the allnurses website, by the way how are you, have you taken your board already? I did took mine on May 6 and its already the 20th now and still no news yet whether I pass or failed again. Im very worried, my test was ten times harder thanthe first time I took it, last time I failed in 265 questions and this time the computer stops at 96 and not really sure how I did, this is driving me crazy, I keep checkin the BON online thing but my name is not there. I just hope and pray I pass this time, dunno what to do if I fail again. Do you know if this waiting so long already a sign that you fail? Thanks for all the good thoughts and encouragement I receive from you and all the other who replied to my post, Im just keeping my fingers crossed and just hope I pass.
Thank you all.
