    Thanks for the encouraging and uplifting comment. I am very happy for you that you are not experiencing the difficulties I am facing at this moment. I know that you can never really grasp the intensity of pain that I am feeling because we are not in the same boat. May you prosper in your career.

    I didn't find it a waste of time because I am pursuing a goal that I want to achieve. It is heart breaking but I never looked at my failure the same way you viewed my situation. When I took the exam, I didn't have any intentions of failing. I also didn't see it as a favor because I fulfilled and met the requirements needed to be granted another chance to write. I am thankful to those wise men and women making decisions that they are not narrow-minded and without prejudice.

    As far as I know, I live in Canada, a great country where people have lots of opportunities so finding a job is the least of my worries. On the brighter side, "I didn't fail the test; I just found 100 ways to do it wrong."

    Hi survivor 007,
    I admire your courage and resilience at this difficult time in your life. Please know that your words have uplifted me and that I will, starting from now, include you in my prayers. Take care, God Bless you and hope to talk to you soon.

    Survivor did they really do you a favor, you failed the fourth time! You wasted your time and money. If by a miracle you get to take the exam the fifth time, who would employ you ?

    To the others, why did it come a surprise that on your third attempt you failed, you had a track record of failing 2 times. Personally I would have taken the refresher after failing the second time. Did the college make recommendations after you failed the second time.

    Taking the NCLEX would be a waste of money in my opinion, if you don't have legal access to work. Why would someone hire you if you passed in a competitive market when you couldn't pass the standards in your home country?

    The test is there for a reason, three times is an acceptable amount, you may not like this but nursing may not be for you.
    Totally agreed!
    More then acceptable even.

    For those who failed recently, what are you guys doing now? I still want nursing as a career, but still at lost and have no clue on what to do.

    I wish I can..

    For those who reside in Ontario, have you heard anything from CNO? They told me they would send me a letter one month after receiving my results on March.

    Many of you may not agree, and I'm sorry....but 3 chances to write the CRNE is more than fair, regardless of your circumstances. You need to achieve roughly 65 to 66 percent on the exam, in order to guarantee a pass. That is reasonable. The Colleges have a responsibility to the public to ensure a standard. And, I would think that all the prep courses or study aides should be utilized well in advance of appealing to write for a third or fourth time. I know some of you are probably very disappointed, but treat this as a learning experience. Perhaps nursing just isn't your path.

    I am in the same boat. New to this. But I feel like no one is giving us much direction. If if I have to go back to school and take refresher course or what not why are the schools telling me I'm ineligible to enroll (makes sense why give out a 2nd degree in the same thing). There has to be a way and if anyone knows pls share with me. I'm writing the rpn may 18th. And when I pass @ least I'd be more patient in finding another alternative in re-writing the crne. And for those students who passed the exam and stating that the crne is a fair exam. Walk in my shoes for a day!
