Help!!

Posted

I have taken the Nclex 5 times and the last 3 times my results said near passing. I am so just down in the dirt. I thought I had passed this last time but I was wrong. Can someone give me advice on what to study? I also have test anxiety and I have medication for it but I think maybe it didn't help me 😯

Sorry to hear about your situation. You are not alone and you've came to the right place. In order for us to fully get an understanding on what direction to guide you we need a little more information. You did share that you have test anxiety. Did you have test anxiety in nursing school? If so, what helped and what didn't help? There are plenty of test anxiety tips on here or online that can guide you. Also, did you have other commitments during your study time( ie working full time, etc) Did you understand the nursing concepts (ie physiological need vs safety need, ABC/triage, leadership management(who do you see first? delegation) and anatomy/physiology)

I did have test anxiety in school but it wasn't bad because I can handle taking paper exams. Something about a computer exam makes my anxiety rise. I know I have issues with getting it down to 2 answers and 90 percent of the time i gett it wrong. I have 2 kids under 2 at home with me. I try to study when they nap or are in bed. If you have maybe better study ideas for park and priority questions that would really help too.

PDA book is great for priority questions. I highly suggest you first review the prioritization concept before doing practice questions
