    Been there.

    Done that.

    Seen the movie and worn the t-shirt.

    The doubts. The bad dreams. The no dreams because you cannot fall asleep even though you are so exhausted that you are barely able to drive yourself home. The tears (yeah, big, strong, macho men in nursing shed those tears too, take my word on that). Most of all, The Question lurking in the back of your mind; the question that you did not write in your post, because it scares you, but that all of us know haunts you: "is there something wrong with me?" "Is it my fault?"

    There is nothing wrong with you. You are learning to cope with the pressure of having a job that matters. That is what you wanted, isn't it; a job that matters? You could have been a successful member of our nation's burgeoning fast-food industry, but you wanted more. You wanted to matter. Good for you! You are "paying your dues" to earn the right to do work that matters, just like all of us had to.

    You will never stop feeling the pressure to be your best, nor should you. However, one day, maybe soon, maybe later, you will realize that no matter how hard you try to be the best nurse in the world, you never will be. Then, you will be able to understand that you do not need to be "that nurse" because being the best Danigold, R.N. in the world is good enough. Really Danigold, it will be enough. Trust me and the others who have posted. Trust what we are writing to you, until you are able to trust yourself.

    Hi there... I just took my NCLEX for the 5th time as well. I finally got the "good pop up". I am excited and scared at the same time! I live in CA so I have to wait for my results. I keep thinking im the exception to the rule...because ive taken it so many times.I know that they are more than willing to take my money (they have done it many times before) but im still so worried. I have wanted to give up and just throw in the towel more times than I can count. Thank you for story with being honest in how many times youve taken it and sharing your pearsonvue trick experience. Im hoping soon I will see my name on the boards website!!

    Thank you so much I keep that in mind.,.i know prayers can move mountains.,.I graduated outside US and when I came here I started working in a different field while waiting for my ATT before and failed for the first time and yes it took me one year again to take my second try and for that one year it made realized that thats not the job I really wanted to do coz I know that in my heart all I wanted is to become a Nurse.,.In God's blessings i had the Opportunity to stop working for a while in Te help of my husband and just focus studying but unfortunately I failed the second time around and run out of my time,.I re- registered again to take it next month.,.that's why when I read your post that your sitting for the nclex again for your fifth try you just gave strength to stand up. ,.I just love your perseverance and courage for not losing hope despite of those many tries.,.and see you made it.,.God is good all the time and He always have the best plan for us in the right time and the right place.,.Congratulations again and it's time to celebrate

    So, I took my RN boards today, answered about 138 questions and did the pearson vue trick and I got a message saying "Our records indicate that you have recently scheduled this exam. Please contact your Member Board for further assistance. Another registration cannot be made at this time". I hope I really did pass but I let you know Monday.

    oh thats wonderful blynn, just think, half the battle is getting to know your coworkers and fitting in, so since you already know them, that should make your transition a little smoother. i know how you feel though, once i pass nclex, im scared to death to actually practice, but you've already proved that you have endurance and courage, you will be just fine; i have no doubt that you will make a great nurse! thanks for your prayers!

    After many attempts at the NCLEX I finally conquered it! I want to give God all the glory. He gave me so much strength to keep going and to keep studying to pass it. I graduated in 2010 so it has been a long two years waiting for the day to come that I pass the NCLEX. I just want to say thank you to everyone out there who gave me advice and encouragement down through the years. This site is amazing. It has helped me through this journey of becoming a RN. Also to anyone who is yet to take the NCLEX, you can do this. Believe me if I can do this so can you! Don't ever ever give up your dreams. I wanted so bad alot of the times, but I kept going and pressing onward. I knew one day I would finally pass, and guess what I did. I have a RN license now
    That's so wonderul, congradulations, Im so happy for you. I know it was a struggle for you but you did it; you never gave up on your dream, yes God is good!
    Hey question, did you feel that the test was harder than the first time you took it or about the same?
