    I had two anxiety attacks during the exam.. But I felt like I had good questions and it shut off at 103... I just don't know anymore... You can get KNOCKED DOWN 1 times and get back up... U GET KNOCKED DOWN AGAIN.. u get back up! But after the 5th times... Ur just numb.. And lost. I got through school. And I know my stuff .. If I was scoring in the 56- 63's in Kaplan... How is this possible?

    I'm so sorry to hear :-( the best RN I worked with failed 7 times and passed on her 8th time. She is the best RN on the floor and her title says RN, not I took it 8 times RN. Take a few days off to get your mind clear, cry and let it out. Then when you are ready, tackle it again. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

    Yes I did check... took me to the CC page.... I freaking failed again! I'm lost of words. Honestly. This is my freaking 5th times and I studied my ass off and my Kaplan scores were so good... I don't know what went wrong. I'm exhausted .. And mentally drained. I have over exhausted all my books, cd, online sources.... I'm out of words... My friend who took it with me also failed at 275 questions...
    I'm so sorry to hear this. Take a mental health break; when you get your results in the mail you can formulate a new plan. PLEASE do not beat yourself up. There's probably just an area or two that you need to look at. Don't let this be your last try. We are here and we can help you through this. <3

    When I was developing my study plan I learned through an online strategy session with Kaplan that if you can get the first 6 questions right on the test it boosts you way up above the line. Every time I took a practice test I would slow my breathing, be aware of distractions but not give them my attention, then focus on the question with authority and confidence on the first 10 questions. I call this ninja focus. It takes too long to do the entire test this way.

    I am prone to extreme test anxiety and had to develop a way to overcome it during school. It was so bad at the beginning it was all I could do to stay in my chair during a test. I used meditation techniques to slow my heart rate and find focus.

    Hi florida, don't give up. I took nclex more than 7 times and I am not going to give up. Gods timing is not our timing. I felt the same way you did. Sometimes I ask God why I got A's and B's in nursing school and why is it so hard to pass. I study my butt off but this month I am going to have RN behind my name. In the name of Jesus and I am going to be on of the best.

    That's true peppermint, it will say your name and RN behind it not 8 times. I guess I am going to be a good nurse. Just keep the faith and keep prayering God will see you through.
