I know exactly how you feel. I finally passed last month on my 3rd attempt and almost 3 years after graduating. Not to mention 8 months pregnant. It is possible! Just hang in there. If I can do it, anyone can! Just take a little break and get back to it. Don't waste time like I did. Wish you the best! Don't beat yourself up about it! Good Luck!
Thanks everyone. Well since this was my 3rd attempt..I had lots of sources. But yeah this time I mostly used Saunders comprehensive book as well as the CD-Rom it comes with for questions. I used their calender option, it gives you a 6 week schedule/calendar with what chapters to read daily with 2 days off a week. After reading each chapter I would answer the questions at the end. And do additional test questions using the CD-Rom. I also used notes I've taken over time.
Good Luck to Everyone!
Hello Everyone. I finally did it! And couldn't be happier. I just wanted to share my journey to maybe motivate or give others hope.
I graduated in June 2009..all my friends passed, but I didn't. I first took the NCLEX in Oct 2009 and failed with 84 questions. Then took it again for the 2nd time in June 2010, got all 265 questions but still failed. I was bummed! And was scared to fail a 3rd time so I kept putting it off, wasting time.
In September 2011 I found out I was pregnant again with Baby Boy #2, so it was time to get on it! I needed to retake again and pass before the new baby came, otherwise I knew I really was never going to do it. Once again I noticed I was sort of putting it off. Finally I paid all necessary fees, no turning back now. I started reading the Saunders comprehensive review chapter by chapter and doing questions.
At 33 weeks pregnant, last week, I sat for my 3rd NCLEX attempt, got all 265 questions again, and finally PASSED!
I was in no rush to find out the results. My friends kept asking me if I had checked and I would tell them no. Finally 2 days after I took the test my friends couldn't wait anymore and they checked and then let me know the good news..lol. If it wouldn't have been for them I probably still wouldn't know the results.
I was so scared that I had let too much time pass by and that I wouldn't be able to pass.
So to anyone in a similar situation, just put your mind to it and you could also do it.
GOOD LUCK to everyone!
Hello..i'm new to the area, little rock, and am in need of a study partner to study for the NCLEX.
Is anyone interested?
I can totally relate! I've failed the nclex twice. And am afraid to take it a third time and failing too.
Its been 2.5 years since i graduated nursing school and a year since the last time i took the nclex. I don't want to waste any more time. All my friends have passed on the first attempt and those that didn't passed on their second.
I just recently moved to Little Rock, AR...so if anyone needs a study partner or knows of someone who does like NCLEX tutoring please let me know.
