what is wrong with me?

  1. I took my NCLEX-RN for the second time today and I really felt prepared and studied well, but I got 265 questions again! Last time I took it 2/1 and didnt study as much as I could of. This time I thought I spent my study time well practicing questions and learning strategies. I have never been a good test taker, but geez, I dont know if I could handle this test again! I am not feeling good about this right now......HELP, what is wrong with me?

    Oh yeah, to top it off, I got home and there was a message from the hospital I interviewed at and they want me! It is the only place I inteviewed because I didnt want to settle. The new program will start in August. oh what to do.. what to do.

    hang in there.
    i took test first time 210 questions and failed
    2nd time i got 265 and failed
    3rd time i got 238 and passed the third time i studied so much and worked so hard i thought i would get the minimum 75 questions and when i didnt i was devastated but i passed.......we dont know how it went till you get your results but think positive.
    each time it took me around 5 hours and i didnt think i could do it but i stuck to it and just kept reading and practising questions (thousands).........be brave.xxx

    p.s nothing is wrong with how you are feeling. many of us are going through the same or have been through this.....it is a very hard test.

    Thanks everyone, I needed this....
    I feel exhausted for putting so much time and energy into preparing for this test. My boss at work even let me bring my laptop for when I have "free time", just to study. So yeah, even though there is hope (as you guys have prooved), I still think in the back of my head, " what if I didnt make it?"
    Thanks again for your encouraging remarks. I will keep you posted either way it goes.

    I feel the same way, just imagine my first attempt at the NCLEX-RN exam I got 75 questions and failed. The second attempt I got 75 questions and still waiting for my results. It doesn't matter the number of questions you got but if you did well enough to pass. Remember God will give you the desires of your heart. I will be praying for both of us.
