Feeling like failure. Not happy in my life.

I am very depressed and I went online seeking free help because I am so unhappy and life is not getting any better for me. I took the PN exam today for the second time. I got 205 questions this time just like the first time. I felt ok with the first 50 to 60 questions, but things started making me nervous when i went past 85. I should have rescheduled my exam because other things in my life are not working out. Past 6 weeks i studied my a^^ off and I can't seem to get ahead. I made A's and B's in school. What has happened to me? I don't see the point in taking it a 3rd time. I can't afford it. I borrowed for the 2nd test and now I just say screw it. I should have not taken it today. I am kicking myself.

Life has a way of kicking us in the rear. Dont give up. If nursing is your passion then keep on going. Take a deep and relax until you find out for sure. Many have passed with that number. You may have surprised yourself!!

I don't know what to tell you... There are people who have taken the exam more than three times and have succeeded. You don't know yet whether you passed or not, so try not to be too depressed until you find out how you did.

Best of luck to you! :icon_hug:

Maybe you did better than you think you did? I don't know what to say. I wish I some words of comfort, but just try to get through thee time until you know for sure. I will keep my fingers crossed for you and I truly hope it all works out.

I am sorry to hear that. I am sure after what have been through and what you are going through is normal. Keep your head up and I am sure things will go your way. You've come this far, don't give up now.

See how it goes, just because you received another 205 doesn't mean you have failed again. Hang in there and don't give up

Good luck

your not a failure...........STOP! we all have bad days but life still goes on and you can do it. You made it in school, do not throw that away, do it again and again and again until it happens and it will........have faith....he won't let you down........hugs

Hi , i feel your pain for I have the same situation I took NCLEX-PN 3x, first 2 test I end up with 205q my 3rd time was 97q and just got the result last sept. 26 and it's not succesful, I know how painful it is especially with financial, but I have to let you know that don't give until you succed this pain is temporarily only that's what I told myself, there are some who took the test for 8x and passed they never give up. You should do the same thing to. You need to refocuse yourself and start studying again I suggest to do Suzanne's plan, you can find it on the sticky note. We can study thru here PM me all the time, if you need to, thanks! I pray for both of us to pass next time..:)

Just keep trying..

You are not a failure..

A girl from my class just got 205 Q and we were sure she failed till she got her results, she passed w/205, it is possible! DONT GIVE UP YOU WORKED TOO HARD IN SCHOOL:heartbeat

Please do not give up, there are many of us that feel your pain with not passing the NCLEX. I have failed twice and preparing to test for the third time. So, keep your head up and think positive!!!! We can and will pass the NCLEX!

hang in there....!!! just remember don't give up...you can do it.:wink2:

I feel the same way. I can't seem to pass this exam yet I graduated with a GPA of 3.7 in nursing school. All of my classmates seemed to pass and all have jobs, yet here I am jobless with student loans that kick in next month. I tried so many different things and ways to study...i am lost

we all have our shares of feeling unhappy, dissatisfaction, disappointment,, all that stuff...but we were created in such a way that we could bounce back and get up from where we are right now...so don't give up...hold on a little longer.

I'm sorry you didn't pass I know how it feels because I have not passed my nclex-rn boards twice now. It is hard and really makes you feel depressed at first but you got to keep your head up! I really isn't the end of the world life will go on and you aren't the only one who hasn't passed. You will pass though but you may just struggle with test taking more than others like me. Like you I also got pretty good grades in school so it's not all about how well you did in school its about your test anxiety and how well you take tests. So just relax for a little while give your self time for it to settle back in and start studing when you are ready. Also do not rush into your test for the third time God will let you know when it's time to take your test again and he will help you come up with the money needed. Hope that helps :) Good luck!

dont give up GOD is good and if you did fail dont quit
