  1. 0 This will be my 3rd attempt taking NCLEX-RN. I am loosing confidence. There are many nights that I just couldn't sleep and I could not stop crying wondering how I am going to pass this test. I am going to loose my house if I don't pass this test. I am doing Kaplan online course and NCSBN subscription for 5 weeks. I already have a set date for the test October 3, 2009. Need advice on what other tools/materials to help pass this test. Any help/advice will be appreciated thank you.

    I am on the same boat. This is my 3rd time to take this damn exam NCLEX-PN. I am sick to my stomach and trying to figure out how will i pass this stupid exam. I hate all this people who made this exam, i hope there all d---. This is the only thing that makes my life miserable. I swear to God after passing this test i will burn all my nursing book...I starting to hate this career. I've been reviewing for two months now and still the same low score..i dont know how to figure this out..maybe this nursing its not for me..I dont hate Nursing..i just hate this stupid exam that we all have to go tru...grrr!

    I also envy those who passed..but i always think to myself..that passing my second time will make me better.. i will value my job more than the ones who passed the first time, because i know what it feel like to be a failure... we all will be PN and then we will be able to celebrate as the others on this site.. then we will be able to write our success story on how we passed and help others who are also struggling through this exam... I am praying for myself and each and everyone of you .. good luck to us all!!!!!!!!

    Same boat here. 3rd time is a charm. Keep positive attitude. Work out. Eat well. sleep well. Keep studying. You will get it...keep in your mind, this is a passable test. Answer lots and lots of questions, do well in these questions. Don't take life too serious.

    I have to take mine again too--for the third time. I'm just hiding in my room, with a bottle of wine! I just found out I failed twice.

    It's okay to have a bottle of wine and cry if you need to if that's what helps you feel better. but after few days or a week you need to get back to studying again just like me, I will be taking it in few weeks, we will get through this just have faith. Good luck,

    Have confidence and make a slogan 'I can do it". Keep doing question and read your content. Have your anxiety undercontrol, Anxiety is one of the may obstacle of failing exam. Wish you best of luck!

    Me too, I have failed it twice and had stopped even trying for the 3rd time until 3 weeks ago. I had been feeling the void of something in my life. Then I decided that I have to do this. It has made my life much happier. Needless to say it has been 4 years since I took my last NCLEX, so I have to work much harder. I have started from scratch and started getting ready for it. This forum is a great way to share your thoughts and anxieties. Get them out here. Scream and yell all you can. I agree with the slogan "I can do it", I really think it should be "We can do it". I know I will be able to this time. I am gonna take my time and get ready for it and nail this son of a gun. I know you will too. Take some time (as much as you can, I know some of you are taking this sooner than the other) bang your heads on the wall, scream and yell, once all the frustration is out, concentrate on the exam and nail it. We all have to.

    True, after a few days I'm working on trying to pry myself off the pavement and try again. I received my results today, it says I did better than the first time--good news.

    I'm going to take the advice of another nurse on here, not to tell anyone of my 3rd test date--to keep the pressure off of me. Seriously, having to tell people that I failed is so disappointing.

    We will all get there, it just will take us longer, our minds weren't designed to take this style of exam. Not everyone is good at this standardized test. Hey--we made it through the program, now we have to keep on trying--we'll do it!!! At least we all have each other. I seriously am so thankful to find others, it's nice to know I'm not alone.
