Passed Nclex 3rd Time!!!

  1. 3 Hello Allnurses!!

    Just wanted to share my story with all of you. I graduated this past December and I had been struggling to pass the boards. Finally I passed it on my third try!!! This past tues Aug 30th I went in the testing center and just put it in God's hands. By the way I am another person to testify that the pearson vue trick indeed works. After the test I went home and tried to re-register, instead I got the good pop up. It helped with my anxiety just a bit but i wasnt claiming victory until i saw a pass/fail. Thank God its over and I passed!!

    I owe my victory to Kaplan!! I did the live review and I did 50% of the qbank. I read all of the lectures and followed along in the book. In addtion I did all of the question trainers. The first time I did Helen Feuer. Although I loved the review it just didnt work for me. the second time I did exam cram and that didnt seem to work for me either. I was desperate and a friend of mine had mentioned that Kaplan was the best thing he had ever taken. He passed the first time so I decided to give Kaplan a shot and thank God I did!!!

    To all the first time nclex takers and repeat test takers. YOU CAN DO THIS!!!! Things always have a way to even themselves out for everyone. Stay positive and know that you can do this!! You already did the harder part which was the schooling!!! Never Give Up!!! You will pass!!!!! You will soon be claiming that RN!!!!

    whoo hooo!! I'M AN RN!!

    well, i took my test yesterday... i got 265 q's again... when i got home an hour later, status said "Delivery Successful"... i did the PVT and i kept on getting the Good pop-up until now... "Our records indicate... " ... I'm hoping i passed, but i've not seen someone get the exact pop-up not the "record on hold..." and ended up failing it... i hope it's as accurate as others posted it to be... i took mine on a friday so when should my name appear on the BRN website of CA? ...

    all i remember is that i had a lot of SATA, infection control, prioritization toward the end of the exam... and the highlight of my hope was my 263rd Q was a SATA, and the 261st was a drug calculation, so i hope i passed this time... i had to siit through all 265 items again... =] this time i hope it was worth it

    If you got the good pop up that says to contact the member board because another exam could not be registered at that time, then you definitely passed!! I dont know how long it takes in CA to see your name on the BON. I live in NY and I took my boards on august 30th. Just recieved the letter with the official results in the mail from Albany that I passed yesterday and I still haven't seen my name on the BON. I went on the website and it says new licenses usually take about 2-3 weeks to be issued especially in the months of June, July, and August due to high volume of test takers.
    I hope this helps! and congrats!

    seriously?... you mean it, like definitely?.. i'm still getting the pop-up until now it's my only hope... i've been doin it ever since my exam probably over 50 times already... and everytime i do it i smile, coz my first time it always took me to the CC page... i can't believe it, do you think its okay for me to start celebrating now?... man, i'm so hyped to start me career, tht i've always wanted to do since way back when.... omg, thanks God, and thank you for your words of support... someone pm'd me tht it takes 3-5 days, business days for my name to appear on the BON, but since i took it on a friday i hope i can just see it... i dont really care how long it takes as long as i can see my name with a license no. and RN by it...
