Need Help,.,Failed NCLEX :(

  1. 0
    Failed nclex for the 3rd time. I am just so confused and discouraged right now. I don't know where to start and how to begin again.

    Took my first try a year ago and just read Saunders book and answered some questions from its cd. I know i really did bad the first time and failed at 75 questions. After failing i got a job from a different field and stop studying for a while.

    Early this year a blessing came and we found out I'm pregnant. So my husband and I decided that i will stop working for a while till i gave birth. I started studying again almost everyday from April- july. I did Kaplan Q bank and answered all the questionnaires, read all the rationales and even took the exams twice. I also used kaplan 2011-2012 test strategies, Kaplan RN course book, Kaplan Calculations and studied the materials floating here.

    So i took my second try this july and i run out of time at 209 or 210 questions. Correct me if I'm wrong but they said when you run out of time they will only review the last 60 questions you answered and they will decide the result from there. So I got my result in the mail and failed with one above passing, one below passing and the rest are near passing.

    Two days after failing, I went back studying again hoping to pass before i gave birth. This time i used LA Charity, NCLEX 4000, Hurst review book and i also upgraded my kaplan Q bank to Kaplan On demand, answered kaplan Q-trainers read all the rationales and watched all the videos from the review site. From kaplan i usually got 60-70% from all their questionnaires. And continued reading the materials floating from this site.

    Unfortunately, I failed again almost two weeks from now and I run out time again, yes for the second time i run out of time again at 240 something questions. Got my result from the mail and this time i got one above passing and the rest are all near passing.

    I am already doubting myself if i can even pass nclex. I know I'm not supposed to think that way, maybe I'm just bothered till now. And sometimes i even think of giving up that maybe this is not really meant for me, good thing i have a very supportive husband who always give me strength to stand up and to try again after i gave birth. I am due this month and I'm already at my 38 weeks so anytime from now i'll be holding our first born son.

    I don't really know what to do this time. But I know i really need to manage my time answering questions with an specific time frame. Any suggestions, encouragements or materials that i can use are very much appreciated. Thank you and Godbless!

    Yes, you can make. Sometimes it seems your efforts are in vain, but NO, you will overcome very soon. Be persistent in your reading, remove fear and be positive. Davis, La charity and Saunders helped me a lot, Martin review, Excell nursing review and kaplan review were helpful to me too. He who rest rust, falling and rising are the keys to NCLEX success, hang in there and good luck to you friend.

    Hi dear, I'm so sorry to hear that. My heart goes out to you and your husband. I know it's not easy to fail, but it's what makes us, US.
    I don't see anything wrong with your studying regimen. You have some of the greatest weapons for NCLEX, kaplan and saunders and lacharity. I would honestly practice questions as if you are taking the real test. Go to a secluded corner, no distractions. Do a timed test always so you can manage your time while answering questions. No eating or drinking and no bathroom breaks always, do this so you can train your mind. I did it and it work wonders. When I got to the testing center, I felt comfortable as if I was just at home practicing questions...

    This too shall pass dear.
    message me if you have any questions okay?

    I watched a couple of videos on YouTube from the creator of remar review. I did not use her program, but she seemed to focus heavily on helping those who have been unsuccessful in the past to do well on the nclex.
