Hello allnurser's:

I am currently a PN and just finished RN school and took my RN nclex yesterday. I first of all wish i had known about this site earlier, but since i do now I'll have to start from here. I had 265 questions and left KNOWING I had failed. I felt so angry and upset not to mention depressed and like such a total FAILURE, it doesn't help matters that everybody I talk to says things like: Oh, I'm sure you passed., or Everybody says they failed and they dont. While all of this may be true I just know i failed which is how i found this site. I said to myself, "self maybe you are over reacting and maybe just maybe they are right and you did pass by the grace of god." so I googled nclex and 265 questions and a lot of discussion boards popped up. I started to have a little pick me up after reading some of the responses people left about still passing and receiving 265 questions, but then i found the one about the Pearson vue trick where you go back through the site and try to re-register for the test and if you can you fail. Well ..... lets just say YES I can re-register and i found not one person who was able to re-register and had passed so Yep you got it I feel I failed and NO I don't have the official results BUT why would I be the one mircle case. So I said well at leat you already knew and know you can focus on studing for it again. But the thing is I cant stop cryihg, my heart hurts SO BAD, I feel like a total failure and like i just wasted a whole lot of money and time. I dont know where to begin to try and pick myself up to study again for the test. Yes I know it's possible, and I know there are people that have taken the test 2,3,4,even 5 times and while I know I should be able to pick myself up and just start at it again I just dont know how. PLEASE help I love being a nurse and love helping people but feel like such a total idiot. Can someone anyone point me in the rigth direction?? PLEASE:crying2::cry::o:crying2::cry:

Take a deep breath....you've studied hard for your RN...it will all come together. If you have to re-do the exam...get some mentoring before the next test date. Agree with Morte, take a break.....you'll accomplish your goals...just pace yourself. Best of luck!

There are many that do not pass first time, the key is not to give up. You are grieving and the NCLEX is certainly an exam in a class of it's own.

Give yourself a break and then look at a study guide and set a schedule you can follow. Do not overdo it and try to rush to resit, take your time and get ready to sit the exam. Have a good read in this forum as there is much in the way of hints/tips and support for passing the exam.

Good luck for next time

im in the same boat as you are, i found out i failed the NCLEX RN just like week. It was my first time taking it, i only got 76 questions. I thought i passed when i got out of there because i was getting so many "hard" questions such as priority , sata, but no , i dont think the nclex makers think those are hard. I too got my self together and scheduled another date to take my nclex, which is mid august, very long from now, but i have to wait the days in between. i studied so hard, but i dont think i was good at critical thinking (or ofcourse i would have passed). i just enrolled in kaplan yesterday and started questions last night, i found it really helpful. hope it helps. good luck on your next time. i know we both will make it. you pray for me and ill pray for you. take care
