frustrated

  1. hello everyone
    first i am happy that i found this forum. i have taken nclex 2 times and did not pass both times i had 265. i have wanted to give up. i am so weary about the test that i cant send away for my att. i am just so scared to have 3 times undermy belt. and i need to work. as male i have been a aid and have been abused by the other nurses. and the other aids feel intimidated when they find out i am a bsn nurse. my question is where can i work in the mean time, while i take my test. i need insurance and food. and also any advice in this evil test.
    thanks

    Don't give up! It must be very disappointing to get all the way through 265 questions twice, but you have to hang in there and pass this thing. What strategies and study materials have you used so far?

    Don't give up, try Suzanne's plan. I'm using it and I will be taking the test for 3rd time. Many people used her plan and passed.

    Hi,
    I feel ur pain.... failing the exam twice and working as an Aide is not a fun thing to do. i myself doing the same thing.... i graduated with highest GPA, got my BSN but failied the exam twice and currently working as an aide... (on the floor that i worked as a new grad nurse). So don't give up..... use different studying strategies this time and take it again. i'm doing suzanne's plan now..... check out the sticky about her plan.....
    lets pray and encourage eachother......

    I would check out Suzanne4's plan. I used it and passed it on my 4th try. Don't give up, you can do it.
