I just took my RN exam. I got 79 questions and I didn't pass. I'm so upset by this. I have read some other stories of failing and it has helped me to remember not to give up and try again. Even though I failed and it sucks, I have to remind myself that I was going through a lot during my last semester of nursing school and leading up to my exam. I had a baby four weeks before I graduated and went back to school five days later, in addition to working part time and having to care for a 5 year old. I have to remind myself that I didn't go through all of that for nothing and if I can get through school under those conditions then I can do anything. I am struggling with feeling like I'm going to be looked at as a lesser nurse(by employers when the look at my registry page) when the truth is I'm not. I just want to be given the chance to prove that without being skipped over because I failed once. I have been looking at other posts to see how people are studying so I thank all if you for posting your experiences. It's helpful to be able to communicate with others who truly can empathize with me!!
