Hi, I am also about to the take the examination for the first time this october and to be honest I am not confident enough to be able to pass the exam, I have a 1 year old baby who i take care of 24/7, and I graduated from nursing school
3 years ago. I've been trying to study and study, but it seems like its not sinking in into my brain cells.. Worst thing is that, people around me expect me to pass.. This is really frustrating..
By the way, I am an internationl graduate from the Philippines, and now living her in the US. And i took our local board exam exam twice too..
There is still Hope, Pray to GOD, and ask him that you really need this licensure.
I know He'll give i to you.. Just Hold on.
