I have been crying since Monday because, I failed my nclex exam. It would not hurt so bad if I had not studied for 4 plus months straight. I actually had no life! I would not go out to dinner or go to the movies nothing. I would wake up take a shower and eat breakfast and straight to the book until late at night. My family is very poor. I am a single mother of 4 and can barely pay our lights and gas bills so I sacrificed and took out student aid and loans and went through nursing school. It was very hard but, I prayer my way through it. I just knew that my family were going to be saved now because, I was going to leave no stone unturned when it came to passing the nclex exam. I used Kaplan, Saunders and Lacharity and this website for nursing facts to study. I don't know how to study for that exam. I still remember most of the questions that I had on the nclex but, what do I do now? Also LaCharity did not prepare me for the type of priority questions and teaching questions that I had. I had SATA questions on medications that I did not know. Allnursing website has given me so much courage when I was getting ready to take my boards. So I decided to seek encouragement and help from here also. Sorry if I was long winded but I am so destroyed right now! Will I every be a nurse and pull my family out of poverty?
