All of a sudden I am really depress Today

  1. Hi guys, I do not know, but just receive report on my classmates, and every one of them who took the test so far pass, I am the only one that failed. They keep and telling me, "why you don't go do your exam, it is so easy, we know you are going to pass," but guess what I am so embarrassed to tell them I did my exam and I failed. Also one of my girlfriend from class, who just pass on thursday, called me and told me, guess what the dummest boy in the class, pass, she is like, we know you can do it, but guys how do I face such an embarassing feeling, knowing that, you were an A student in class, this is so annoying to me, thought I was getting over this feeling, now it is coming right back, please help me to overcome such an embarassing mood, give me some cheers, and lightened my day, not to mentioned my 2nd try is in 3 weeks, thanks guys, just needed someway to vent. Please, where are the ones that pass, are they still around to help and comfort the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th all the way up to 99 timers, just kidding with the ninety nine, take care guys. Luv u all

    I know this is really hard for you. But you have to focus on what you must do in the next 3 weeks to prepare for the exam. Do not worry about the others in your class. You are not obligated to tell them anything if you feel this will add further humiliation. Do not dwell too much in the past. The negative will only keep you negative. Use what you did in the past and make some changes right now. How did you approach preparation the last time? What are you doing differently this time so that your outcome will be different? I really empathize with you because I know how you feel being a great student and not performing that way on the test. But that's okay. You will do it this time. Remember, this is not a competition or a race that you are in with anyone else. You can and you will do this. Plan and strategize and you will be fine. Keep your head up because things are working in your favor.

    I'm sorry you are feeling so down. You're definitely not obligated to tell your other classmates anything. And they were wrong to say to you that the test was easy. In no way is that test "easy." Just take one day at a time, and don't worry about your other classmates. You need to focus on passing the second time, and I have faith that you will. Hope you feel better, and stay strong. God Bless.

    Thanks for taking the time of your busy scheldule to lend your support to me, it is so hard to not to think of the what if's, cause it is difficult to listen to all of the I Pass, not that it makes me feel any better for the ones like me who fail, not to get me wrong, I am happy for all of my soon to be colleagues, but after all I am human, and it is so difficult to cope after all the preparations and then this big beast biting hard drama, when I thought that my stung by the beast was healing, I guess, it is difficult to let by gones be by gones, thanks again and may God bless you.

    Dont be discouraged! just remember that there will be good days when you feel like studying all day and days when you will feel anger, anxiety and hurt. I know because i am in the same position and i had let that feeling take so much control of me that i had feared going back to face the nclex. its been one year and now i am picking up the pieces. Allow yourself to be sad but do not let it consume you to the point where it affects your studies(like it did me). We are cheering for you. When you are down we are here and we will be still cheering when you pass! :Melody: This is your fight...not your classmates!

    I am very sorry to hear that....just move on and take the challenge again....the only loser is the one who already gave up....I know you will make the next time around because you will come and sit there prepared, don't look at the numbers anymore...just sit, relax, and enjoy it!

    Why Would You Compare Yourself To Your Friends. Well Dont Worry Cuz I Had The Same Feeling Also. I Have Taken My L.v.n. More Than 3xs Already Just Imagine How Dreadful It Is For Me To Go . I Practically Avoid Them So That They Dont Talk About Work. Im Really Heartbroken. Ive Worked Hard.. My School Was So Expensive And Back On My Base "a" But All That Negativity I Had Needs To Stop Becuz Its Just Messing Up My Concentration .i Dont Know What To Tell You . I Am Feeling The Same Way. I Think Im Becoming Bipolar. ;(

    I just found out today that I failed the nclex, it was my first attempt. I had all 265 questions. I totally agree with everything you've been saying. I also worked my butt off to get to this point, only to be slapped in the face, and lose out on an awesome job position that I have been ecstatic about for months. Hang in there, a test doesn't mean we are not good people or nurses, it's just a stepping stone that someday we will look back and laugh about, Right???

    lucky13, i tried to reach inside to find magical words to make you suddenly feel better, but alas i have only ordinary ones to offer and here they are: i know really smart students who failed and really weak students who passed. the really smart students who failed got the wackiest questions...its really all a lottery. i also know a student who had to stop amidst her last quarter, when she was at the top of her class, because of cancer. i think it helps to remember that when we fail, we are really not alone (it just feels like it) and that this is just a test, and one we can re-take at that! its not life & death, just a roadblock.

    that which doesn't kill us, only serves to make us stronger.
