I also feel that this does not reflect on my ability to nurse, i am a very competent nurse, but i trained in the UK and we are not used to multiple choice. BTW do you get a fourth attempt?

I think that by the thrid attempt, if a person hasn't figured out how the exam is worded and the types of things being looked for in the response, it's unlikely that a fourth attempt would make any difference.

I too am a UK trained nurse & myself & other UK colleagues all passed 1st time so it's not your training that's letting you down. What you need is not so much the content but the strategies to get to the right answer.
The Mosby book & the CNA book (& probably the Lippincot book too) all have sections regarding strategies & you need to know these almost more than content.
When you practice read the reason why you got an answer right as well as when you get one wrong, it helps you learn why an answer is correct.
CRNE is a horrible exam (worse in my mind than N-CLEX, which I also have) because it's so psyche-social & wishy washy. Almost all the questions have answers which are all correct in their own way with just one being more correct (or a better answer to the original question) than the others.
