I am so tired of being stressed out over NCLEX RN

  1. I have to pass. I did ATI's, Kaplan, some Saunders, Hurst review, Mosby's...what ELSE am I expected to do to pass this NCLEX? Cant relax but I cant allow anxiety to take over either.
    My friend passed on her second attempt with 79 q. after she failed the first time with 75...she did not even study all this much after she failed..she told me she got completely different questions that seemed so easy the second time. I would like to have "easy" q. too! I dont understand how the exam can differ so much for each candidate and on each attempt!!!!
    I am just so stressed out and I dont know what else to do but to go there and take it Thursday and do my best and hope for the best!
    Please share some advise..English is my second language...that adds to my anxiety because sometimes I dont know all the slang or some simple words used in everyday language...this exam is just so hard for foreign candidates to take.
    ATI gave me 99 % chance of passing 2 wks ago...so I know its not lack of knowledge that failed me...but what can I do to pass? I want to be RN!

    I am as stressed or more than you.. i took my first nclex pregnant and second try during the first month of my baby.. now i am going to attempt again for the 3rd time. and its harder because i have to attend to my baby all the time. i even got more "below the passing" grade than my first attempt. I am out of idea on how to do pass it..

    hi BGmedsestra!

    having done everything you could to prepare for the NCLEX, its about time that you give your mind some moment to relax and recharge. visualize that you have already passed the NCLEX but control your anxiety.
    good luck on your exam!

    It is a stressful exam to take but try and take some 'me' time and let your brain relax as well as your body. Good luck and please try to relax

    I know how u feel, I'm also in the same situation. I test on Oct. 10. I already failed once. I know how it is to attend to your kids and it's very stress full. I also work and time is my worst enemy. Try, try is all we can do. so the best of luck to you. Never give up.:spin:

    I know exactly how you feel. I am taking the nclex for the second time Oct 4th. Both of my friends passed their second time and I feel like I NEED to pass the second time. I want to burn my books right now! I am trying to stay positive and say to myself I am an RN. Everything I need to move on all comes down to me passing this test and I don't know how much more I can study. All I can say is that we are both doing the best we can do right now. If we go in there and take the test and we did the best that we knew how to do, then that's all we could have done. Hang in there, it seems that there are a lot of people who are going throught the same thing. Good luck and stay positive, you're doing the best you can do, we all are!!!!

    Good heavens my dear.. STEP BACK take a deep breath and relax before you give me ulcers. LOL
    You did your best and that is all you can possibly do now wait patiently for your results.
