I am writing anyone who can give me any bit of advice and or study tips for writing the CRNE. Sorry if I have too many questions or ramble on (it's the anxiety). I failed my exam the first attempt by 8 marks and ended up running out of time and circling in for 8 questions without reading them. I was devastated when I got my letter in the mail. I have begun studying a month ago or maybe longer lightly each day but I don't feel prepared at all. I work full-time and can't afford to take time off to study more. I also find myself having a hard time reading for long periods of time or knowing exacting how I should study. I am starting to feel very nervous and panicking that I am going to fail again or that I don't know enough. I do awesome in the clinical setting so I know I'm a good nurse but when it comes to exams I guess I don't do as well as others.
I was wondering if anyone has any words of advice on how to write the exam better, how to study even when I can't read any further and maybe any words of wisdom or advice to ease my anxiety and boost my confidence for this. I know I am not the only one feeling like this right now but anything will help myself and anyone else in my situation.
