ok, not going to sound very nice here.....if you gave up all that, and studied to exhaustion, you are not demonstrating good time management nor good prioritization. If you don't pass this time, you need to rethink your path, and/or go back to school.
Thank you kindly for you response.
To give up my full time job was necessary in order to solely focus 100% on studying for my exam to which I had fully not done so with the last 2 times that I had taken the exam. In doing so, it allowed me in the last 3 month to review and understand my weaknesses, thus, have greatly increased my practice exam scores. Not to mention, I understand and can apply the content to scenario based questions that are much like NCLEX style.
Next, I sincerely believe that to have a companion means that someone supports during your ups & down. Which in this case, my downs was the fact that I couldn't pass the last two times around with minimal to moderate preparation. Unfortunately, my husband couldn't deal with the fact that I couldn't pass (along with other minute factors) and decided to leave. I truly believe, it was for the better with my strong support system behind me encouraging me to never give up despite my road blocks.
I'm am not sure what you mean by I'm not demonstrating good prioritization nor time management as the 3rd time around that I am putting this exam FIRST. For a person who is taking the exam for the very first time doesn't go into the exam think, I'm going to fail twice so that I can take it for the 3rd time. To take the exam for the 3rd time would indeed leave someone 'exhausted '. Wouldn't you agree?
God forbid I fail this exam 3, 4, 5 more times. I WILL NEVER GIVE UP!!!!! Nor will I rethink this career path. I continue to welcome all well wishers and POSITIVE thoughts as it is truly making me feel so much better.
