    I'm so sorry to hear that Sharon!

    I'm sure saying this doesn't help much, but things like nclex are a minor bumps in life. I'd be happier to have a nurse who tries hard and knows more though they fail on paper, than one that can ace their exams at first try without any sweat poured over. This will be another opportunity for you to study and therefore know more. You'll eventually be a nurse, but one that tried harder, and so cherishes her profession more than most, because it came by hard work. I'm sure your celebration will be sweeter for it then! Also, I think God uses things like this to give us a priceless gift: humility! I find that those I admire most, know a lot and are good at what they do, have this humble aura about them that puts pride to shame!

    Eventually you'll be all the above: a nurse, more understanding of others who feel sad for one reason or another (because you will have been there), knowing more stuff of your trade, and also humble! That'll make you one in a million!

    Since you already have the Saunders study materials I suggest you get hooked up with Suzanne. She uses Saunders with her students and she said they do well on the exam. Maybe she can help you, too.

    Also remember that this test doesn't tell you how wonderful of a nurse you will be. It mearely says how well you did at taking a test at that moment!
    I would bet that very few people actually give up all together and just find a different career because of failing the NCLEX.
    Consider this, you are now experienced. You have some idea as to what questions you'll get- what they look like, how they are worded, general topics, etc.
    Do you have test anxiety? Maybe a light anti-anxiety would help. A friend, who is a wonderful nurse, failed 2x. Took an antianxiety and passed the 3rd time.
    Take heart that while you didn't pass this go around, the statistics are in your favor for passing the next time.

    Brnsugar, I know how you feel, I'm studying for the second round myself. Like someone said, pm suzanne w/your email address, don't post it here. she'll send you some good info to help you get started. Also, there's a book in the stores made by Kaplan on NCLEX test taking strategies. It's an easy read & some of the strategies helped me alot, especially when it came to breaking down the practice questions. Hope this help some.
