    Not to be judgmental, but you could have purchased one or two decent study courses (Kaplan, Hurst) and passed the first time (with spending the same amount, if not less money).

    I wish I had the funds to purchase such a course. As is, I'm pretty much going to have to pass the NCLEX the first time, else I'll be in deep financial trouble. Thus, I'm studying my arse off. Congrats on passing the PN.

    Congratulations on the PN success. I am, however, very curious why you thought taking the test without studying was a good idea, and why continuing to take the test once. . . twice . . . and three times more without studying was an even better idea.

    Not trying to be judgmental here . . truly! I think what we're trying to say is, please study for that fifth try! Keep us posted!

    Congrats on becoming a nurse!! But I am also curious as the previous posters on why would you waste so much money taking a test multiple times you didn't prepare for?

    Nclex Pn is much easier than Nclex RN in my honest opinion.
