3 Attempts and I finally Passed!!!!

  1. Yesterday I took the NCLEX RN for the 3rd time. This time I prepared with Kaplan. I had the one of the highest scores and improved the most in my group, that was a great confidence booster.....

    So yesterday. I got to question 76 and my heart started pounding. I took a deep breath and kept going....All the way to question 265....I was pretty sure I got the last question right, but I knew that that one question wouldn't determine if I passed or failed....

    Now the wait...Lastnight comes and I'm freaking out and I knew I'd have another nightless sleep...

    Got through the night. Only one more night to get through...THEN my friend sends me an IM and tells me to call the state board because that's what she did...It took me a long time, but I finally called and was told a License was issued this morning for Registered Nurse....

    I finally cried tears of joy...My life can finally proceed...

    For someone who did great in clinicals but struggled with exams and I am happy to say those that aren't so good at test, will pass the NCLEX, it just takes us a little more motivation and a study schedule with structure...So thank you Kaplan...

    Thanks for listening...

    Your story is very inspiring and although I'm waiting for results I'm certain I failed b/c I ran out of time. Anyway this isn't about me right now so CONGRATS RN!!!!
