    I'm sorry to hear that you failed. I know that it's an awful feeling, but as Fun2Care says, recoup and continue on. As she said, Suzanne4 has a plan for those taking the NCLEX. You can send her a PM and she'll give you instructions.

    Please understand, that you are not the only one who has failed. I know that this may not help, but you are definitely not alone.

    Hang in there and keep moving on!

    I am trying to give myself a break but at the same time, i want to start studying so bad. I actually tried today but i was too distracted. I feel a lot better today not crying or feeling sorry for myself. i really hope i pass the next time. In Ca you have to wait 90days so that gives me time to study

    I feel the same way, sorry to hijack your thread but i was reading the replies just for me to feel better, i don't wanna start a new thread saying i failed too, since we are in the same boat in CA...until now when i think about it i start to cry and tell myself what have i done wrong, but there's nothing i can do anymore but to get over it and start fresh, it doesn't matter how many times we take it anyway, it's just not our time yet. i will submit my reapplication tomorrow and that maybe will make me feel better, and i'l be more fine for sure when i get my elegibility again. i will start reviewing the saunders CD just like what suzanne told me. i don't know how am i gonna encourage you or give you some advice coz i badly need it too. i feel like giving up but i did 4 years of school for it and i even got an award for being the best in nursing care, i'm an academic distinction awardee too but i'm failing the NCLEX RN i don't know why, God only knows, my classmates that is just average in school took it and passed the first time, that made me more mad at myself. i still not over it but i'm trying to by reading the replies in this thread. thanks for all encouragement and help that you guys are giving us. GOD BLESS YOU ALL

    I hope you find the peace you need to continue on. You said yourself that you are outstanding when it comes to nursing. Don't let a test make you think otherwise!

    Your friends may have had different questions than you, so there is not any way of rationalizing why one passes and one fails, other than it does occur.

    You are to the point of acceptance, even though tears may still fall. Get your application sent in, and overcome this next obstacle.

    Have faith in yourself, and do not give up.

    Good luck. :icon_hug:

    Hi,

    I am sorry to hear that you failed the exam. Take a couple of days to relax and enjoy your family and get back to grind. You can do it! I don't know if you're a spiritual person but pray works. Never give up on yourself.

    This website has really helped me get through my stress and anxiety with NCLEX information. I feel like there is sincere bond here and everyone has excellent advice and suggestions.

    Suzanne4 has excellent information, you might want to email her about what and how to study.

    Good luck to you and I will pray for you!

    Hi eosaeni. Please do NOT feel like you're a failure. You are NOT. Don't give up. The best nurses have made mistakes and failed at least once. Just take some time to relax your thoughts and yourself and your mind, and start studying again. Take the advice of people who have passed the exam and use different studying techniques to see if that helps you out. I'll keep you in my prayers. DON'T GIVE UP!!! God bless you always.:kiss

    It sounds to me like you are OVER studying. If you learn some of the testing strategies, that helps more than killing yourself with tests! For instance... the correct answer is usually the least invasive-first choice never being to give drugs. "Assess" before any action. If the answer says "always" "never" or any absolute words such as those, it is usually wrong. Pain doesn't kill people-the test will try to distract you with patients in acute pain but they are not usually the priority patient. I was actually told that it was better to wait until about a week prior to testing to review rather than months of overkill and it worked for me. I was nervous as heck, but I passed it just this week with the minimum # of questions!:hatparty:

    I'm so sorry, eosaeni. Do not give up!

    Please list what you were using to study, and how many questions you answered, etc, so that other members who have passed it can help you out.

    You can beat this!
    I know exactly how you feel. I have taken the nclex pn twice and failed. I worked so hard in nursing school and graduated. It seems so hard but I am am not giving up.I graduated in august 2004, since than I have had a baby girl, she is six months old and I have a son who is 5 years old. I'm also married. i've spent to much time, effort and money to give up. So just takes it from someone who knows, keep your head up high and retake your test. we will pass it!!!
