Help! Nclex 2nd Time!


I graduated from nursing school in may of 09. Unfortunately right after i graduated a family member became very ill. I spent all of summer and most of fall nursing them until they passed away. I took my Nclex right after and of course failed. I had around 90 questions and I was a complete mess. I was shaking couldn't concentrate and felt ill the whole time. Since failing i have recently taken KAPLAN again, and I am scheduled to take my boards again on FEB 25th. I'm finding my motivation to be lacking, and like I have forgotten some things which is so be expected. Is there anyone out there who took their boards and passed after almost a year of graduation??? I want to be able to move on with my life, and I just feel like there is no hope and I am stuck in such a rut.

You will do a lot to shake these negative feelings on the 25th. One way or the other, it is a milestone. Best wishes.
