Well I can't help but share my success story I started nursing school January 2012 I failed a class and sat out a semester just so I can start again well when I started back I came back pregnant this time.. In January 2013 with an expected graduation date of June 2013 my baby died and I delivered a baby boy (stillborn) with the strict attendance guidelines the school had I returned in 4 days and proceeded I graduated in June although it was 6 months away from my original grad date I still did it! Thinking that the hard part was over I scheduled my first nclex exam in October I barely studied in fact I didn't know where to begin but I said "I got this" had 205 question did the PVT and got the credit card machine when I received my failing results I was near the passing standard in every category so I said not bad but try again so in December I scheduled again this time I did the Kaplan strategy online class took the test I failed with 122 questions the scores were above in 3 categories and below in the rest although I was getting worried would I ever reach my destiny I kept working as a cna despite the many questions my co workers kept asking what's taking so long? How did fail? Blah, blah, blah I knew my 3rd try was coming and if I didn't pass I would have to take a refreshers course in my mind (more money) I can't afford this! So I bought the Saunders book, and the Kaplan strategies along with the I line qbank and I borrowed an exam cram book from a class mate and I studied every single day I did questions at least 75-100 I read every rationale there was! I even watch the guy in YouTube who breaks down lab values easily a million times The night before my test I decided to read the 35 page study guide once I read it I went to sleep the morning of my test feb 27 yesterday I arrive 30 mins early when I sat at my computer and finished the tutorial I wrote at the top of the white board "God is in control" then I wrote the acronyms out for airborne droplet and contact precautions and all the lab values and then I took my test! The computer shut off at 89 and every thing I wrote helped me on my test in fact I finished in 45 minutes lol! I had 1 math 5-6 drag and drop and about 8 SATA the rest were prioritizing!!
When I left the site I did the put and there was the pop up I cried all the way home because my journey to today was a rough one I'm awaiting my quick results which I can do tomorrow! But I just wanted to share this with any repeat testers out there don't give up forget the test u failed approach the next test like u never took one before and pray!!
