Just took NCLEX AND FAILED...I NEED HELP PLEASE

  1. So on 4/5/13 i took NCLEX for the first time and failed. I had only 75 questions...i was extremely nervous and anxious and i didnt take my time. I let the anxiety get the best of me and so i did terrible. I cried and now im over it, its time to jump back on the bandwagon and pass this test the next time around. Here is where i need help....i need some study techniques or resources that was used that helped anyone out. So far ive used kaplan, saunders, and ATI. If there are any other resources that would be of any assistance please help. im trying to give myself 90 days from today to sit for it again.

    How were your scores for Kaplan? How many questions would you do?

    Is it really hard? Try practicing SATA questions and brush up your content review. There's nothing wrong in trying again! Believe in yourself!

    Lindsa LaCharity's PDA book is so great, and the NCLEX study guide.

    Also, download NCLEX 3500 for free. Those questions really helped me. Especially for SATA questions. You'll pass next time. Stay positive, have faith and believe in yourself!!!

    Hello. You sound motivated to kick butt next time which is a part of passing the test. Considering you failed at 75 questions (like I did the first time) I suggest you brush up on content material but do not only focus on that. Practice practice questions! This will help you pass mostly. If your funds allow, purchase the LaCharity book, NCSBN (for questions) and use the free NCLEX-3500 online. These are the closest to the actual NCLEX and most helpful. Good luck!

    Gather your self. It's ok to be sad and it's normal. Then try again. Try the ncsbn online review and they will help u in test taking skills.

    I passed my nclex the 2nd time.. I used Saunders 5th edition , Kaplan and Hurst. I practiced answering 100 questions/day .. 50 in the morning and the rest in the evening. I did that because I get tired from answering 100 questions in 1 sitting. Lastly, pray for divine intervention.. You can do it good luck

    Hi I too took nclex today April 9 and screen went to cc page. i had about130 questions but still hoping that I get that false neg and still see pass on there in the next 48 hrs. I feel soo down and sad. But if it is what it is, all I can do now is study harder. Just wanted to let u know that you are not alone. I will be an RN!
