    Hi Tee and welcome to the Board!

    You stated you have alot of personal problems in your life but you know you can pass it and Yes you can. I would recommend not taking the test again until you know that you can go in there without your mind being boggled down with personal things. I just took my pn on 10/11 and I was determined not to think about nothing else but that test and focus on passing. That test is hard to pass if one's anxiety Level is high or your stressed out.

    I used Saunders, Lippincott, and Delmar cd's to review and I also had an online review with NCSBN which I did for three weeks prior. I believe that all that together is what helped me to pass and I also reviewed test taking strategies which can help when you have questions that you know completely nothing about. Best wishes to you on your next try, I believe you can do it!

    Hi Tee!

    I had to post on your thread because I feel we have a lot on our plates right now as we are trying to pass this ridiculous exam! During the summer I had a lob lined up that was waiting for me to pass my exam prior to me actually taking it. They even called me THE DAY of my exam to find out if I had passed it, forgetting i was supposed to take it in about 2 hours from when they called me. All the while I had my boyfriend arguing with me about the most ridiculous relationship fight on the most impotant day of my life. Turns out I failed the first try.... I gave the job away since I couldn't determine when I would get my license.... So THEN on my second try, I have moved back home temporarily, only to find out, that my soul mate, my boyfriend of 2 years, wants to break up with me ONE WEEK before the NCLEX! can't you believe it??? I wanted to lose it. So anyway I thought after that was all said and done I had enough confidence to take the exam again, but once again I failed. It's really frustrating to go through 4 years of college and not pass one stupid exam that can determine the rest of your life. I worked so hard at this, you know? I feel like I need more relaxation techniques right now than I do at actually studying content because everything around me stresses me out to the point where I can't study anymore.... anyway, I wanted to let you know, TEE that you aren't the only one with personal prblems in your life and that we can get through this together with the help of your friends and fellow nursing friends. Good luck and let us know how you are doing! -Kate
