Failed NCLEX :c

  1. 0
    Hello Nurses. I'm a registered nurse back in my country, graduated March 2010, got my license that same year.. Moved to the United States, worked as a server/waitress and finally decided to take the NCLEX just this April. (2013) A lot of people told me the test wasn't that hard. I underestimated the exam and didn't purchase or enroled in any review course. I basically studied by myself.. during the weekends because I'm working full time.

    So I took the test, computer stopped at question 75, I got so confident because I've read here that getting only 75 questions usually means you pass so I did the trick only to find out I failed.. And what can I say? I only have myself to blame.. Being 3 years out of school, I should've known this would happen. Now I feel so devastated. I know, I made a mistake and now I have decided to give my 2nd try my best shot, I will quit my job to focus on this and I'll maybe try either Kaplan or Hurst review. I'm planning to take it again maybe by July.

    Please help me :c What can you suggest for someone like me who's been out of school for a while? Thanks in advance! I'm sure I'll be a frequent poster here, I really need a support group like all nurses.

    Do you live in Hershey?! Because then we can study together. I am pretty sure, I failed my test today, too. I had 75 questions, and I have the feeling ONLY SATA and medication and prioritization questions ....
    I studied a lot with books (Saunders, kaplan, Hurst, LA charity) La Charity is a must-have book!

    U graduated 2010 that is still fresh, i graduated from philippines more than a decade ago. There are free or inexpensive nclex apps for ipad so u can still study while on the go (kaplan, lippincott, davis, etc). NCSBN review is also very affordable.

    Hello. I'm from the Philippines too.. Wow you did a great job! Yes, I'm thinking of trying Saunders app for iphone, I think it's about $30 but if it's worth it then i'm okay with that. I have free apps too but they're only limited to 100 questions or below. Thank you!
