    So I posted a few days ago about testing in 3 days and I tested today. The test shut off at 75 I got like 10 select all that apply. I did the Pearson vue trick and got the good pop in Virginia how long do I have to wait to call? is it too early to celebrate? has the good pop up came up for anyone and they didn't pass? im freaking out in a good way but im nervous just wanted some reassurance thanks everyone and good luck with all the future testers

    Hello third or more timers: I graduated nursing school May 2011 and here we are in 2013 and still nothing...needless to say i am discouraged and ashamed to say the least all my classmates have made it into their RN carreers and im merely working as an assistant. I fear that i have forgotten alot and cant afford big courses of study like kaplan. I thought of doing the ncsbn review thats cheaper but i dont know much about it. Anyhow i guess im looking for some encourangement from my third time friends and some help of how you passed it that third time, what were your tools?

    i just wanted to say thank you...I graduated in May 2011 too and I will be taking the NCLEX for the third time soon and i, just like you, felt discouraged and wanted to quit after the second time. I too considered another career choice but at 24 and being a wife and a mom starting over is not an option. Your story has really encouraged me to keep trying. In school i wasnt the best student but i did manage to get my associates in 15 months in a very rigorous program so that has to count for something. Anyhow thanks again and congratulations on passing!

    Hello everyone, I will be taking the NCLEX for the third time soon and im feeling more nervous than ever. I graduated more than a year ago and have been working as a care partner along side nurses for over a year as well. Im finding it soo hard to get back into the swing of studying and im not sure how to start. I cant afford kaplan but i have a kaplan review book, a saunders book and the prioritisation book too. If anyone can offer any wordsof encouragement or any study tips please let me know thanks guys wish me luck

    wow congratulations!! ur story was inspiring i will be taking my NCLEX (for the third time) in the beggining of august. Im very nervous but I think its my time and im not giving up. I will be taking a week off work ( im currently an NCP at a local hospital) to do some heavy studying then taking the test but relaxing the night before as i often hear. I also printed the AN guide, did that help you? did u review that a couple days before u took the test? Anyway congratulations youre truly an inspiration to all of us
    much love and support
