    I re-took the NCLEX-RN again for the 3rd time on Monday. I was positive I failed. I sat trying to see the screen because my vision got blurry when it shut off at 75?'s and wanted me to do the exit survey. I just kept saying to myself, "NO! I want more questions. Don't give up on me yet, I can pass this thing!!!" I came home, wrote the board of nursing as well as my boss asking what steps I need to take to test for an LPN license until I could manage to pass the for my RN (been a CNA since first taking it in July).

    Tonight at work a very nice RN was giving me the 'pep talk' about "It isn't over until it's over. You can't count yourself out until you actually know... I thought, no was sure, I had failed too... blah blah blah..." While she was talking I was looking on the internet finding the 800# to call just to show her I WASN'T listed in the registry as a licensed RN in our state when I heard, "The RN, R-A..." That was as far as I got. I said, "OH MY GOD!" Hung up... dialed again and made her listen to see if she heard what I heard... SHE DID!

    I FINALLY PASSED!!!! I AM an RN! I called my husband at 4am and needless to say, he was NOT upset that I woke him up. He and my daughter called everyone they could think of just to find out that I had already Text messaged everyone. He he he.

    Well. Just had to share my story with everyone.

    rags, RN ~ here's MY monkey dance
    Congratulations! Ya-ya-yahooeee!
    I am a new grad studying for my boards. Your testimony is heart-warming and I am glad for the RN who gave you the pep talk.

    Celebrate your hard work! I am sending up praise for you, rags, RN !

    Nana1206,

    Thank you and I will be hoping and praying for you as you get to the point of taking your boards so you can pass the first time through, but remember... If you for some reason you aren't successfull the first time around ... your not out! It can still be done, you just may need to change your tactics.
