JUST SAYING

  1. 2
    Over years, we've all read the posts from Americans "did I pass the NCLEX". Well the average poster doesn't know and in all honesty really doesn't care.

    I hope the Canadian Forum isn't going to go down this route with multiple posts "did I pass CPNRE or CRNE". We honestly don't know.

    Every nurse I work with had the same fears and walked around for upto 12 weeks waiting for the PASS/FAIL note in the mail. Canada Post must hate nursing exams, what with us all stalking the Postie and hanging out at supermail boxes.

    The best thing you can do is carry on with your lives. You can keep working right up until you fail the third time and that's a really rare occurence. I've only ever met one nurse personally who did this and have heard of a couple of IENs who couldn't pass either CRNE or CPNRE.

    The odds are in your favour of passing if you were educated in Canada.

    Now, relax, have a hot bath, go to Starbucks. But leave your Postie alone.

    You're absolutely right....you obviously read my post. haha.


    I have one question, does my first written exam count as 1 attempt? So basically I have 2 chances to write the exam? I didn't ask the people there or any of classmates..dumb question i know..

    and yeah, I am going to relax now.. no point in worrying too much about it.

    You get a total of three tries. So, may, sept, jan.

    If and it's a big IF you managed to fail, you still have two more tries.

    The vast majority of PN students don't fail. By the end of the second book, eveyone thinks they've failed. It's normal.

    Now go back to whatever it was you were doing and stop stressing.
