    "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.
    I sincerely hope you don't mean you would interrogate people taking care of you and reject them if they were not of the right faith or were atheist.

    To the OP: I don't think you can see your failing NCLEX as God rejecting you. It simply meant that on that day, you did not perform to the standard needed to pass the exam.

    When I read your post, what stood out to me was how frenzied you sounded, and I wondered if that was the mind-set you had when you approached the test. If you are that frantic the next time, it's going to be very difficult for you to pass.

    When you take the test again, try eating a light breakfast/lunch before you go, and make sure it has protein. Since you are a person of faith, perhaps instead of praying to pass the test you should consider praying to have the calm spirit that you will need to be able to recall everything you've learned to apply it to the exam. I have prayed for calmness when I've needed to do a procedure during a hectic moment; it helped me to clear my mind and just focus on what I needed to do.

    I honestly doubt your parents are going to reject you for not passing the test. I think you should tell them; they're going to find out eventually, anyway. Give them the chance to be supportive.

    I am one heck of a nurse but I guess I won't be touching you or your family. Good luck with that.

    Following staff discussion and members failing to follow request from staff to keep to topic it has been decided to keep this thread closed.

    Religion for some reason causes issues. The world is a huge place with many different religions and beliefs and for some no beliefs. It would be nice if we could respect everyone whatever they believe and not take threads off topic
