Hello all, I took my NCLEX yesterday and took the whole 6 hours finishing my test with 265 questions. I am so devastated and been crying since yesterday. I am in such a wreck that I don't even have the strength to eat or get up... Read More

    Its accurate...didn't pass twice took straight to cc page. Don't give up though. Be tough, hold your head up high and keep going. Take one week off to relax then hit the bokks again. I've been studying since December...failed in jan...in march...and will retake this month. And I know i'll pass this time. The number of times you take the nclex will NOT determine what type of nurse I'm going to be.

    Remember, God gives you things you can handle.

    If you need help just PM me.

    Keep trying. you can if you will. Start again, see where you need to improve. Remember it doesn't mean you didn't pass you are not good enough. It just means that it is just not your time yet. When you're ready, you will know. cry if you must. As they say. CRYING IS THERAPEUTIC. When you're ready to start again, do it with fresh perspective. Pray for strength and He will help you all the way thru!

    Thank you obloom14, I will be taking few days off and buy some more resources, so that I can pass the next time. I have faith in myself and God. I just need to pull myself together for some strength.
    Thank you Nurse428, I have been crying since yesterday and it feels like my worst nightmare. I am losing hope but I know, I can't give up. I know God has a better plan for me next time. Thank you for all your support and encouragement.
    @ereyes24: Thank you for all the positive thoughts, I know I can't give up but I am not sure, what I need to do different. I did all 1300 questions on kaplan and all the question trainers+watched the videos and read the content book from kaplan. I am planning to buy NCLEX exam cram, Saunders review and the prioritization book by Lacharity. My email is tenchoedon84@yahoo.com.
    What other books do everyone suggest?? Please help!!

    I am so sorry. But, still don't give up and wait for the official results. I have heard cases where people have gone straight to the CC page, yet still get their license. But if you really did fail, don't give up! The real failure is if you give up. This is a standardized test and it does not at all determine who you are, how smart you are, and what kind of nurse you will be. There are people who can simply pass this exam, but make terrible nurses to their patients. Just do not give up, keep praying, and keep moving foward. I know that it is difficult to look foward when it feels like your worst nightmare is coming true, but this will come to pass, I promise you! Pray, pray, pray! God will get you through this tough time (:

    Sources to study?

    Kaplan has helped me greatly, but if Kaplan is not helpful for you, maybe you can try the NCSBN learning extension course for the questions. That was helpful too. Getting a management book is also a great idea, as the NCLEX now has many management questions, and those questions can be very tricky. I would suggest NCLEX 3500 to practice SATA questions and people have said that Saunders SATA questions are also wonderful practice. The study guide from this site was also incredibly helpful at understanding the content.

    Just take your time, don't use too many sources because you may get confused and even more overwhelmed. Stick with two or three sources. Figure out your weaknesses and strengths. If you are pretty comfortable with content, do not waste your time on it anymore. Just focus on questions, especially those SATA questions. Good luck. You are in my prayers!

    Thank you so much for all the good words and support pumpkinspice555. I have been praying so hard and have faith in God. I am not going to lie, I am very embarrassed because all my friends passed and I feel like I left my family and my loved ones down. I have been a good, hard working student and I feel like I at least deserve to pass. This has hit me so hard but I am hoping,I will gather my strength and start it again on Monday. Thank you for all the resources too. Your help and support is so appreciated. I am a shy girl and I am so glad, I can express my thoughts and feelings here. God bless your heart.

    I completely understand how you feel. Know that your true friends and loved ones are there to support you, not laugh at you. They are there to lift you up when you feel down and hopeless. I hope you are at least talking with someone close to you about this. You are doing this for YOU, not for anyone else, don't worry about what your friends may or may not think of you. Pass/fail, if you know you are meant to be a nurse, you will be a nurse! As long as you believe you are meant to be a nurse, nothing can stop you! Don't compare yourself to anyone and just focus on you, only you!

    Thank you so much for your kind words pumpkinspice555. I finally sat down with my parents and talk to them about how it makes me feel. They have nothing but supportive of me and they told me, they are always so proud of me no matter what. I feel much better and day by day, it's getting little better. I want to be a Nurse and it has been my dream. I won't give up and keep working hard. I read your PM this morning and it made my day. I appreciate your kindness and thoughtfulness. Have a blessed day!!

    I am so glad that you had a heart to heart with your parents! And I am happy to hear that they have been very supportive of you. You are truly lucky to have such amazing parents. The heartache will get better and better as time goes by and each day passes. Before you know it, your strength will be gathered and you will be ready to tackle the beast of a test again. You can do it, I believe in you! Keep us posted on your progress and if you need help, just pm me (:
