Try not to be so hard on yourself. First of all, you SUCCESSFULLY made it through nursing school
. Whether it seemed hard for you or not, you are above the curve. You successfully completed your clinicals, and you're on your way to becoming an RN.
As Roy said, a lot of smart people don't pass on their first try...heck, I know for a fact that the NCLEX is wayy harder than PALS, and you'd be amazed at how many RNs fail THAT class. Don't despair. Take other's recommendations and prepare for the next exam. Take a prep course.
I remember as a 16 year old EMT student, had a 93 average in the class...failed the state test. Ouch. But I got back up on my horse and took another class-pass. As a medic I failed a practical station for my National Registry..thought it was the end of the world...back a month later...pass.
This is an uncertain time for you but YOU CAN DO THIS!!!!
Keep your chin up, you have absolutely nothing to feel ashamed of. You'll get it next time.
Never, ever lose faith in yourself. It's too hard to get it back.
Wishing you the best :wink2:
