Sorry to hear you have failed. I have answered one of your other questions in another thread

same here

i reached 265 and failed....

oh well...

have to move on

and start reviewing again.

don't lose hope

we know its hard

but we have to do it again to reach for it

Good luck to us

God bless

You can do it! Keep you chin up! rest your mind for a little and then hit the books again!

same here. I didn't take Kaplan review but I bought their book, I guess it didn't help much.

I want to take their 5 day review course before I try it again.

Thank you guys very much. I worked hard t get through Nursing school, so I can't let this discourage me. I just keep repeating this to myself "SETBACKS in life are SETUPS for a greater comeback."

I was reading the application to retake the Nclex and it says a 2hr Medication error course needs ti be completed before you can retake the exam. Does anyone know if that is so?

I don't believe so

I know if you fail 3 times you have to take some kind of remediation course, but you're not required to take that unless you've failed three times

Will differ from state BON to BON.

Which BON is saying you need to do this course?

Didn't know it varied from state to state. In FL you have up to 3 attempts beforehaving to take a remediation course.

Sorry to hear of your failure. Consider trying Suzanne's plan. You can read about it in the stickies at the top of this forum. Good luck.

I'm in the state of Florida, maybe I read to application incorrectly. I'll look over it again.

I did read Suzanne's stickies. I went out and bought the Saunder's 4th edition today but I took my exam 1/14 so it has not been a week yet. I am so tempted to just dive into it again but I am forcing myself to take a break until next week and then start fresh next week Monday.

hi vanilla..u took the exam on Jan 16 and u failed? Does it mean u already recevied the results? bec I took mine on Jan 5, 2009 still no results its been ten agonizing wait....

No, I took it Jan. 14th and I found my results the next day on the florida website. I am in Florida, so I don't know if it's different in other states. Which state are you in?

Ohh sorry to hear that. actually, I also didn't passed the exam.

I took it last Dec31 and got the letter just now (coz there's no quick results for calif) it's a good thing you knew the results earlier.. unlike me that i have to wait for 2weeks to recieve the news...

I'm now doing suzanne's tip coz some of my friends advice me to do the same thing..

don't worry, if we give all we got this time I know that 3 or 4 months from now, we will have the RN written at the end our names!! Good Luck to us!!:yeah::wink2:

Yes if you fail 3 times with Florida you have to do a course as do a few other states but there are just as many that allows unlimited attempts
