Grrr Argh!!!

Specializes in nursing home, home health, hospital.

Okay so this isn't my first year as a nurse but I am working on my first year as a RN. Or rather i would be if i had passed my stupid state board exam!!! at first i didn't want ANYONE to know that i didn't pass. i thought how embarrassing is that?? there are going to think that i don't have the knowledge base needed to be a nurse which i find incredibly frustrating!!!! I got my first job on a surgical floor and was all ready to be a "real" nurse and then this happens. what a let down.... then i had to go into my glorious new job and tell everyone the bad news and all they can say is that there are lots of good nurses even great nurses that have failed the test the first time around. But as rude as it may sound i don't give a hoot about those other nurses!! i know it sounds harsh but i don't want to be told oh you'll get it next time. I want to have got it last time. I know it's nice to encourage me for the next time but i guess my bottem is still burning from not passing to begin with. I have wonderful clinic skills so why couldn't i pass some stupid test?? i wish there was a way that they could make the test a little bit more realistic. i mean working as a LPN already and being out in the field i knew that, that perfect ivory tower of nursing doesn't exsist so how am i suppost to pretend like it does?? and why on a Nclex-RN do they feel the need to make LPN sound like little more than a step up from someone in a janitoral position. LPN's are great assests but you'd never know it by the Nclex-rn exam. grr argh i guess im obviously just venting. but i just wanted it sooo bad and have never not passed something before so it just gets my goat...

I didn't get any questions about LPN's on mine.

Just bite the bullet and do it again. Suzanne's Plan has worked for a lot of people.

The RN exam was very different from the LPN. It was much more abstract and required a lot more analysis. I'm hoping I passed.

Hello female12233:

Well, nothing I say or anyone else, for that matter, will make you feel any better. Try not to beat yourself up too much.

I am hoping you will pass the next go-around.

Oh, I'm so sorry. Unfortunately, the NCLEX has nothing to do with preparing you to be an RN. I had lots of delegation questions when I took it (that was the hot topic that year) and I know what you mean about the impression regarding LPN's. Hang in there, you'll pass it.
