please dont leave these forums. we need you here. we need your success to shine when you DO pass so that you may encourage others to keep trying even if they did not pass the first time.
my heart breaks along with yours. you sound as if you have taken this task very seriously and you feel as if you did your best and you cant imagine continuing to struggle against sisyphus' rock any longer and i know that you CAN and you WILL. make each day count by working the CD's of your NCLEX study guides.. this will prep you for the computer type questions. look at the rationales of every question you miss and read it until you understand it.
i need you here so you can hold my hand in october when i take this exam for the first time. im petrified and by that time you will have already passed and you can tell me what i need to hear.
dont give up on these boards or on the state board. please.
Jul 23, '03First of all I want to give you a huge hug. I know this must be a stressful time for you. One of the smartest nurses I know failed her boards the first time. The boards are such a weird phenomenon and I don't think they reflect AT ALL how good a nurse someone will be. Just know that so many of us here care about you. If you EVER need someone to talk to feel free to pm me. I wish you all the best. Jess
Jul 24, '03Dear Peaceful2100 - I am so sorry and sending a big hug your way. Please don't give up. I, too, know of nurses who failed the first time around and after passing the second time, are some of the best nurses on the floor. Just take a couple of weeks to relax; enjoy time with your daughter, take long walks, etc. Then hit the books and CD's again. Before you know it, the three months will be over with and you can test again. We're all behind you and are here for you.
Jul 24, '03Peaceful - Everyone's advice to you is great. I just want to add that I just found out that my preceptor failed on the first try. She is now an excellant nurse who is teaching others. She told me about many others who I respect who didn't pass on the first try. Please don't give up and let us know. Christine
