    The ONLY way you can pass the exam is to think like a nurse. Relax and take it easy. I passed following Suzanes plan and it worked. Contact her for the plan and it will help you pass the exam with ease.

    hi i feel what you feel i took mytest may 13 2008. the machine shut off at 155 too. my resolves hurted me so bad and just seeing all my friend pass on the frist time made me feel i did'nt learn anything my mine went blin... so now i find myself study all over again. good luck next time:: you and me will do' it next time.

    Hi I too missed on the first one - the learningext.com site is a site that nclex actually supports and i found that the content helped me greatly-as for thinking like a nurse im not sure that is alll you have to do to pass this - most nurses question the rationals and validities of the NCLEX and are definatley relieved when it is over

    Hi All,
    I to failed on the first try and the second and third I worked so hard,I just got test anxiety all three times test shut off at 205.So in my state in order to take the test again I had to come up with a plan of remediation and submit it to the BON and so I did,They approved me to test for my final time.So I started back in the books and studied tilll thats all I see plus I took a nclex review.I tested Oct of 07 and left with doing 205 questions was sick to my stomach knowing asll I had worked so hard for was gone.I hid in my room hated everyone went to work the next day told everyone I didnt think I passed,But you know I really thought the nclex this last time was easy,I flew through all the questions thinking wow I know these answers.well for my history 205 wasnt a good number.At work the next day I get a phone call from my sister in another state and told me I did it.......What a feeling I almost passed out my eyesight was blurry,I was shaking....in total disbelief....So I went home to check the BON and there it was....I am now a nurse........I cant believe it......I still look daily at my license....I had to change my way of studying I needed the review and I needed to start thinking as a nurse,thats a big thing.....If I did it you all will to Best Of luck to you all

    I too am in your same boat! I took boards the 23rd and found out friday that I failed. It was hard to swallow but I am determined to pick myself up and try again. I know in my heart it is not a reflection of my intelligence nor is it a determination of the type of nurse I will make....but still a slap in the face nonetheless.

    I am excited about starting Suzanne's Plan tomorrow. I have taken the weekend to recover!

    Thank you to all of those who have shared their stories. It is encouraging to know that there are others out there too!

    I just took the NCLEX and failed. I was so disappointed and embrassed for in myself. All of the study and preparing and I still failed the exam.
    I had a job line up and everything just waiting to pass the NCLEX now I'm back to square one. If there is anyone that has some advice or a plan that helped them the second time around can you please share it with me I would greatly appreciate.

    It was a good choice on your part on taking the Kaplan course; I took it and it was really benefical; just make sure you follow their question plan and do the the set amount of questions they give you everyday until your ezam comes. I took mine today and finished at 75 and I feel Kaplan helped alot. Just believe in yourself and try to be calm whn you sit at the computer.

    Hello everyone.
    I am new to this website and I found it very inspirational for me to read what everyone has on their view of NCLEX-RN. I took my exam in July and unfortunately didn't pass. I feel horrible now and even worse when I find out everyone in my class seems to passing, why not me? I need to get back into the gear so I can pass. Any words of wisdom from anyone?

    Treat it as a new exam (well it is) Decide on how you are going to study and plan. Alternatively think about doing Suzanne's plan, all info can be found as a sticky
