    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?
    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.

    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.
    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.

    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.
    St. Claire, you are a great encourager, keep it up. I need all the encouragement.

    I think your panic attacks had something to do with it. You will get your results in the mail soon then you can make a plan. Until then, be kind to yourself. Try to get your stress level down.
    I certainly understand your anger and frustration. It sucks and I'm truly sorry.

    Sorry to hear about that . If it's in your heart, keep fighting for it. I agree with Claire that you should review your score report and set up a plan. Maybe even gather your past score reports along with the new one and identify common areas that you didn't do so well on.
