Failed NCLEX-RN 3 times and FINALLY PASSED!!

  1. 0
    Hello! God made hope for me when there was none and his faithfulness was unreal through out this whole experience. I graduated last year with my BSN and had struggled so much with this test but finally got it done this past week! At first I tried Kaplan then Hurst then Fuer but finally I think i came up with the perfect way to study for this test. One thing i encourage is getting down to knowing WHY everything happens! This allows you to be knock out answers easily and feel confident in your answers with rationale!

    I got down to the basics and reviewed what exactly needed to be reviewed this time around, disease processes, how drugs work in the body, how each problem effects each system, etc! I also had a lot of help from a tutor over the phone and skype that i used from from California (I live in FL) who would break down everything down to the core and explain things to the tee, even has youtube videos that are so funny and will allow you retain all knowledge! I could text him and call him whenever for questions and he was a great resource! I would listen to feur in the car always for reinforcement. Through it all I did daily devotions with God and met him half way and totally recognized that he had full control and that eased my anxiety tons.

    Test experience:
    People say dont have coffee before your test, but if you are the person that wakes up and has coffee to feel right and get going then do it. Don't change routine. Got in the test started going through then hit 76. Went to the bathroom washed my face and said its go time, came back and started working again, finally i get to a med calc question and click my calculator and my computer shuts off! I freaked out! they had the write an incident report on it and the test continued, mind you im freakin out about that. Finally i get to a therapeutic response question and I shut off. Left the test kinda conifdent because I knew I studied the right way this time. Couldnt try the PVT trick because my results were on hold due to the calculator issue had to wait 3 days to finally see I passed. Got on my knees and thanked God for his blessings now starting a home health agency where I live!

    Keep God first and all else will follow! Promise you can get through this, if i could do it with a full time job on my 4th time, you can too!
