ok so here's my story...i just took the nclex rn for my second time and just found out this morning i failed again... i know im not too stupid, im in sigma theta tau and got good grades in my undergrad... i just dont know what to do right now.. part of my problem is i am in a post-bacc premed program right now , but i want to practice as an rn before i start med school (hopefully). i took the kaplan online course, and thought that helped me, but apparently not enough...im just at a loss right now...i feel like after this has happened that i dont know where else to go.. i dont want to give up after working so hard for my undergrad, but i just feel like such a failure, especially after so many of my friends have passed and my mom is a super successful nurse.. i feel like such a disappointment.. any suggestions would REALLY be appreciated..

I'm sorry you're going through this! I don't have too much advice, sorry.

Any chance you're splitting focus between the nursing/med way of thinking and it's too early to do so without confusing you? Wonder if putting anything in your brain except NCLEX/Saunders info is wise until you slay this beast?

I am sorry and wish you luck. OTOH, you only need the BS for school, right? No reason you can't just get a non-nursing new grad job like any other pre med hopeful....

Best!

Im sorry to hear that.. dont lose hope, it's not the end of the world. Think positive. you can always try again, until you pass.

Maybe you need to refresh your mind.. try to read Saunder's 4th edition/Suzanne's plan. Read Prioritization, Delegation & Assignment by Mosby.

God bless to you.

I know what you are feeling. I have taken it 3 times and have not passed yet. All of my friends from nursing school have passed and at times I feel like a failure. I know that I am not stupid but it is so frustrating to keep failing. I used kaplan too and I thought it helped me but it didn't. I would suggest suzanne's plan. I have heard a lot of really good things about it and everyone who has used it has passed for the most part. I am going to try it to. Just hang in there and keep your head up!! You are going to pass and you will be a great nurse. Just stay positive and have faith!! Best of Luck!!:D

I know what it feels like to know that you're capable and smart yet fail. I failed the first time taking my test too. Here's a quote that has inspired me to heal from that failure and pursue my dream again:

If we fall, we don't need self-recrimination or blame or anger - we need a reawakening of our intention and a willingness to recommit, to be whole-hearted once again.

Don't beat yourself up! Many wonderful nurses have gone down this path and did not give up. My husband is in med school and the experience you'd get as an RN would be priceless if you got accepted into med school yourself. Give yourself time to heal from the experience then begin to develop a new plan of attack. When you went through the Kaplan course, what were your areas of weakness? Knowledge or critical thinking? When you received the results of your NCLEX, did you get above the passing/near the passing standard in any section? Analyze the situation and double your efforts. You can pass the NCLEX!

I know how you feel, I took 3 times already but still don't pass nclex-pn. I'm still waiting the result of my last test 2 weeks ago. Don't loose hope, I know somebody who took the nclex-pn 10 times, then finally pass. Just try,try, and try until you succeed.
