failed first atempt

Students NCLEX


HI guys

I just failed my first nclex-rn exam with 265 questions.

the letter said all of the content areas are "near the passing standard."

I did all of the questions on Kaplan and getting score of 50-65%. I used the red priority books also and did some questions from A&Q.

I feel sooooo disappointed, and don't know what to do anymore. maybe i should not be a nurse.

can anyone give me some advise of how to study for the Nclex?

Is there any program that will help me pass?

I am bad on the questions that ask you to put two clients in the same room. is there a trick for it?

thank you sooooooooo much.

I feel for you. It's a hard test. I just finished mine yesterday and received 265 questions. I am still awaiting my results. I tried the pearson trick, but my test results are on hold for some reason. I had a lot of trouble with the palm scan and I heard that may be the reason why they are verifying everything.

Just remember that clean and dirty patient's don't mix.

Keep your head up. You can do this...just remember we know more than we actually think we do. I would advise you to do as many questions as you can reading each rationale and even writing them to remember better. Good luck sweets!

seriously don't give... just take it again.. at least this time.. you'll know whats up... was a lot of delegating task to nursing assistant for your part?!

Don't give up, I graduated 7 years ago but I recently passed last 2/14/14 for the first time. If I did it you can do it better.
