Failed NCLEX yesterday

  1. I am totally bummed that I found out that I failed the NCLEX yesterday after 75 questions. But I am determined to pass, and am going to be starting Suzanne's plan tomorrow. My question is, I have 45 days before I can take the test again. That would make the next available day I can take it is Nov. 19th. I would really like to take the exam that week. So do I have to fill out my paperwork and send it in now, so I can get an appointment date for the week that I want. Or, do I have to wait until the 45 days is over, and then send in my paperwork/sign up for an exam date?

    Thanks in advance!

    do your paperwork (if needed) + pay additional fees now. don't wait for 45 days.

    :spin:You can send in your paper work but you will not receive ATT until after you are eligible to test again. Good Luck and stay positive!

    If I am not mistaken, you have to wait til the 45 days is up before you are able to reschedule w/ Pearson. Here in Fla, you can re-register w/ the BON at any time but you cant reschedule your exam til after the 45 days are up. I am also using Suzannes plan and still have not rescheduled cause the BON increased their fees and I had to send in an extra 15 before they would process my appl. My 45 days are up so as soon as I am determined eligible, I will rechedule.
    I know you feel like you have failed, you are not a failure til you GIVE UP. This is not your case, just reading your thread, you are already in the right mind frame. I was devastated when I found out I failed my 1st try. Take some time and get yourself together,then start back studying. We are gonna make it this time. Just believe in yourself.

    Hey, I just want you to know, that I know exactly how you feel! I just found out this morning that I did not pass the nclex (186 questions). Hearing your determination, gives me hope, because I am so down in the dumps right now. Thank you for your positive attitude, it definitely lifted my spirits. I think I will take the weekend off and then I will be starting suzanne's plan also.
    Quick question though....how do you know if your state requires you to wait 45 days or 90 days...I am from colorado and I looked at our BON and I could not find anything! Does anyone know?
    Thanks!

    Thank you all for your responses I'm glad that I was able to help you to keep your spirit up, kaylaf_24. I know we can get that test right next time! Also, I found out how long the waiting period was through my BON. It was kind of difficult to find actually. I am from NH, so I went to google.com and typed in NH retake NCLEX :P Hope this helps!
