hi guys, first of all let me say thank you for all of your post and comments, it had helped me throughtout my nursing career. Now my story, I graduated lvn september 2012, due to family stuff i couldn't take my nclex-pn until march. i took the nclex in march 2013(unprepared), and i failed terribly, i stopped at 86questions. i wasn't discouraged or anything because i knew i didn't study so i expected it. i took a month off, and went back into studying from april, may and june, i studied 6-8hours a day for the last 4weeks at starbucks. i used saunders, examcram and other study materials. i took it on july 16th, 2013. a day before my test, one of my family member passed away so that was on my mind but i went in to take the test. i went all the way upto 205questions and got home and tried the pearson vue trick and it didin't work;( i am so down and depressed and don't know how to start studying. i will start studying next week because im so determine to pass this nclex. I don't know how to prepare myself mentally and how to overcome this fear and this depression. please share your opinions and tips. Help me please! Appreciated it.
