likewise, you cant predict nclex by our own. i studied a lot. and i don't know how or where to start again.im unemployed too..thinking where to get that $200.theres a plenty of time. i guess 45 days is enough to get another 200 and gain more knowledge for the new nclex. i will probably send my application this week. keep me posted. thanks for the info.

Sorry to hear that you failed. Take some time to regroup then get going on your new study plan. Study as if you had never tested. You can read about Suzanne's plan in the stickies at the top of this forum. Good luck.

You can apply now but DO NOT RUSH to resit. If anyone is considering Suzanne's plan then take a week off, that is part of her requirements then start doing the first tip. Only once you have completed first tip would I say sort a date out and send Suzanne a pm

No one has any reason to feel ashamed that they failed this exam, many do fail and it doesn't mean you are a bad nurse.

I have heard alot of good things about Suzanne's Plan and I'm sure it's probrably great. I also do recommend Saunders, the latest edition. I just took my exam for the 4th time on Feb 12th and I passed. What I do was, use the Saunders CD with over 1,000 questions. I did atleast 100 questions a day...after I took a week off from failing the third time. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THE "PRIORITIZATION, DELEGATION & ASSIGNMENT" by Linda A. LaCharity. This Book is Awesome, it has practice exercises and it worked great for me. I started to get weary after the 3rd test but people recommended it on here and I went and got it. I think this book will really help those out that are having a difficult time with passing. Don't give up! You will pass!!

If it has been more than 1 week since you received your results then you need to start the first tip as it is laid out in her sticky. You only need the book and the first tip is a review Do not rush to resit I would suggest concentrate on her first tip and when you know you are close to completing it then plan 49 days from either the 1st or 15th of the month (depending on where you are on completing her first tip) and arrange your date then send her a pm

abablone12, I don't know about anyone else on here but I feel obligated to give tips and advice. I was once in a position where I felt hopeless but when I read the forums they restored my hope. And I feel an obligation to encourage and uplift someone else!!

i too just received my results and i also failed. i was in complete shock and utter disappointment. my exam shut off at 81 questions. i called the pearson vue testing center and they said i had to call Board of Nursing and ask if they had my records and proof of graduation in order for them to send me a new ATT number (authorizatin to test) and register for the nclex rn again. so its basically the same procedure you did for the first time you applied. hope it works out. im rooting for ya as i am in the same boat.

It is not a point of calling the BON, you need to submit an application to them again as well as pay the fee to them. Your application payment is only good for one try at the exam. Each exam requires payment for both.

There is no Board that will do this without receiving payment again.

(Except for the PN exam for CA, they do not charge you for the license until you pass the exam.)

i have to call board of nursing first and make sure they have my graduation records which they should since i just graduated in jan '09. I plan on callin them tomorrow, Monday morning. then i think i have to register for the nclex all over again through pearson vue and pay that gosh darn $200 fee again. (sux since i am unemployed!!) then after i register i wait for my new ATT # to come and then i can make the appointment for the exam. I'm gonna do everything as soon as possible or as soon as they allow me to do so. so if the board of nusing gives me the OK to proceed i will register for the nclex tomorrow!!!! i'm from NEW YORK.

Don't forget the payment to them for the licensing fee. That will need to be paid as well.

For those of you above that are considering my program;

I require that one waits at least a week from receiving their results before beginning the review. The first tip needs to be completed before I am able to do anything. And one should not spend more than three hours per day on it. Never more than three hours per day in preparing for the exam, or your brain does not retain it.

There is no way that you will be ready 45 days out from the previous test date with my program. The first tip needs to be completed per my instructions, mailings only go out on the first and fifteenth of the month. And your test date must be at least 49 days out from when the mailing is sent out.

You also are going to need to be paying the $80 fee to CA to register again with them, that fee needs to be paid before they will give the okay to Pearson-Vue.

Best of luck to you.

$80?? Is that in addition to the $200?
