    I'm a Christian too but that's some really interesting theology you've got that you can use God's promises in relation to the NCLEX and feel that God let you down since you didn't pass... I agree with the previous poster. Pray, but really invest in your own brain. God never promises us an easy life. Better luck next time.

    I passed nclex by taking a 1 minute nap between each question. I ran out of time and did like 170 or something. Still passed.

    I can respect that you are a person of faith but all the energy you put into fasting and praying seems like a waste of time. As a nursing student you should know that your brain needs food to function! Perhaps that's why you failed.

    "Do not place faith in a deity to help you with exams or your eventual practice as a nurse. " WOW! This is shocking to me, and never on this site have I seen such....heck, I can't even find a word for it. My comments were meant to help ease her mind and give some perspective....not to mislead her. Second of all, I don't want any nurse touching me or my family that doesn't have faith in a "deity," I want a nurse that depends on God for strength and ask God every day before heading off to work that God gives them the intuition, a sharp mind, and sound judgement when caring for their patients. And as a believer I took her. comment "feel like God dissapointed me," was her feelings at the time, which is completely normal and natural when she felt discouraged and scared soon after taking the test. Yes, I believe one should do the work to succeed and be able to pass the test, and that God isn't just going to wave a magic wand and grant her R.N. status, but He will see her through and should be asked to grant her endurance and strength to take the test over again if indeed she failed. Your comment was hateful and scary. God has everything to do with everything for those who call upon his name.

    And fasting and praying is only a waste of time for people who make comments like that. I am literally in shock to read such comments. You people need God!!! And that's all I've got to say about that. Stop being so hateful to others, if you have nothing helpful or kind to say, than don't say anything at all.......remember in kindergarten....way before nursing school?

    Kabfighter, nevermind, I have seen your previous post in other situations and now realize and understand why you said the things you did. You are an atheist. I respect everyone's beliefs so I will not get into all this crazy back and forth arguing (I have found out this is the best thing to do with nonbelievers), but be careful in your comments. This was one strong believer to another commenting and lifting another up in time of need. There was no need to chime in. You can't possibly understand what a believer feels so this would have been a perfect opportunity just to not say anything at all. Oh by the way....praying for you!

    Seriously?? "God" gives me intuition, a sharp mind and sound judgement? I'd like to think its my knowledge and experience. You are deluded. And I would never want a nurse like you taking care of anyone I know. If you have to pray to know what you're doing as a nurse then you need to go back to school. This is not hate. It's reality, I don't feel any hatred just pity. Don't pray for me, it won't do any good. I am an atheist and don't try and make me feel ashamed of it, I'm proud.

    I did not say I have to pray to know what to do as a nurse goofball. I am intelligent and know my stuff well. I did not say I depend completely on God for knowledge. That would be delusional. However, I do depend on God for help. I ask Him for guidance, help give me intuition, ect. And you have no choice....prayed for ya and will continue to..haha!

    Hmmm...fasting before the test? Not a good idea for whatever the reason is. You need to feed you brain because that's what's gonna get you through the test successfully. Good luck!

    OK guys enough about religion and get back to supporting the OP. Religion means different things to different people and we should respect everyone and what they believe whether it is in a god or not

    The first time I took the SAT I didn't eat breakfast. The second time I took it I binged at Burger King and scored 150 points higher. Breakfast is very important, as is hydration! Also, you can take a break whenever you'd like while taking the test, so use that to your advantage. That is a good time to clear your head and pray, not when you're sitting in front of the computer and staring at an impossible question.

    My lack of faith makes my opinion irrelevant? That is far more hateful than anything that I've said. I encouraged our friend to have faith in herself and use the decision-making skills and knowledge she learned in school. There was not a single drop of malice in any word that I typed, and I'm sorry that you see it that way.

    AND also encouraged her not to believe in her God.....that's ugly and just plain wrong. Hope you don't carry on like that with patients...yikes!

    wow. yall hold up.. I dont Play with my God. first of all, thanks yall for all the encouragement and everything.. my motto is and will still be as long as i have breathe in me " IT CAN ONLY BE GOD, AND WITH HIM I CAN DO ALL THINGS THRU CHRIST WHO STRENGTHENS ME". I haven't seen my result officially YET, but me viewing the PVT trick was like i was doubting God and not having faith. nurse2b121212.. i really appreciate ur effort and please keep spreading the GOOD news to the unbeliever. And I pray that God will surely reward us. Others, pls this is my post, I am for God, if you have words of encouragement please write it down, but insulting my King,my savior or any other words that does not glorify the lord, please KEEP SHUT. if you are an atheist, i welcome you to the throne of GRACE where God favor everybody , even the sinners. the rain does not only fall on the believers but also on the sinners. please RESPECT my God.. Secondly, my fasting is my own spiritual way on waiting on the LORD. Now, either GOOD or BAD, I will continue to serve him.. cuz, nclex is not my life neither is nursing.. but HEAVEN IS MY GOAL. if i pass, to God be the glory, if i dont, to God be the glory. As long i inherit HEAVEN, i am GOOD. I am not worry about the exam, but i know God's plan for me are the very BEST. He gives wisdom to solomom, understanding to his disciples and knowledge to David to defeat Goliath. The God that i serve, is always with me.. and by FAITH , I CAN TELL YOU THIS. in the name of JESUS, I PASSED.. SO those who put their trust in pvt tricks, and whats not, they are just merely IDOLS, trust in the LORD and you will NEVER be ASHAMED!!! tHANK YALL.
