NCLEX 2nd time ( SATAN'S WORKSHOP?)

  1. Greeting fellow nurses, I took my 2nd NCLEX exam on Friday the 13th.... And I am sure I failed again.... I am so down, I just want to call in sick to work and hide in my closet with a favorite blanket.... After the first FAILURE I took the KAPLAN REVIEW at Davis California, and it ws very good, really taought you how to break down those questions, and get to where you need to be. At the end of the class I scored above passing, and then continued to do the Qbank questions at 100 per day, as well as really working on the anaylisis and applications questions ( the really hard ones) when I started to score above 65-66% the say GO TAKE THE TEST... and I did ( on Saunders I was scoring 88%) Well I got toall different type of questions??? and it shut off at 77...... way too soon. so here I ama again with my tail between my legs feeling like a FAILURE.... I hate this exam, because it really has very little with the kind of nurse you would be...... and the stress it puts on a person to PROVE that they are worth is just Bull-----
    I work in a real hospital shich makes it even more difficult because you must remember on the NCLEX everyone works in the NCLEX HOSPITAL ( ivory tower nursing)... So I will take three days get myself together and try a new approach, because I will not give up...... I just feel like crying, and now I get to go into work and tell all my co-workers who have so much confidence in me "No I failed agin"..... Yes I am Angry and want to kick someting ( dont have a dog or mate) Just getting this off my head. Bellaluna

    You don't know till you get the results - everyone feels like they failed after the test. If you were doing well on all the practice tests you said you were doing then you probably didn't fail.
    Relax - take the night off and think of the RN you will have behind your name on Monday (or tomorrow - can't remember if they put up results on Sundays)

    Welcome to the site! The NCLEX is definitely a test that will shake a student's confidence. Let us know how the results come out.

    Stop putting yourself down.Its just a test. and quit being so anxious about it. its actually anxiety that can make you fail that test.wait for your results, when they come out and it happens that you did not pass, just take a deep breath, dont kill yourself, but get ready to take it again, but this time around take it in a neighboring state.

    Intresting, why did you mention another state? Nevada only allows 3 time where as Calif. ( wjich ic 60 miles away has no limit... Just wondering what you may know? thanks Bellaluna

    Good luck. I hope you passed. It's hard to leave NCLEX with a feeling that you know you passed. 99.9999% leave feeling the same as you.

    Hang in there.
