How do you get pass just wanting to die!

Posted

I have been crying :crying2: 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!:uhoh3: Will I every be a nurse and pull my family out of poverty? :nurse:

Be strong and positive. Believe in yourself that one day you will get what you wanted. There are times that we don't achieve things at the time we desperately need them. It happens to many of us. You are not the only one. As long as you and your children have good health, makes you more fortunate than people who are very ill or dying. It is not the end of the world if you did not make it this time.

Do more questions, understand the rationales, and learn the strategies of answering them. Go back to contents if you need clarification. To answer your question, yes, you will succeed and live a healthy life in the near future.

Thank you so much for those kind words :lol2:. I am thankful to God that I have my children & I have our health. I just feel so lost right now and hopeless. I don't know what to do different far as studying. Do I go back and study everything again or do I just study materials that was on my exam? So many questions are cluttering my brain right now.

Only you can answer your question. Keep on trying and you will succeed. Quit and you won't. Good luck.

You actually have used good materials. If you were not happy with them, you may switch to other resources. The key to this exam are to know your content and learn the strategies of answering NCLEX questions. The computer generates a new set of questions each time we take. Focus on areas that you have not mastered. Check with NCSBN the detailed items that NCLEX covers.

If anxiety was the reason, you know very well the alternative therapies we have learned. Good luck.

Thank you so much for telling me about your experience with the nclex. You are so right when you say that God does things for a reason. He does not want us to fail! If God allows us to pass and we are not ready even though we believe that we are. We can end up killing someone and messing up all of the years of training that God helped us through. I did study but not the right way for me. Please try the Hurst online review because she is amazing. God blessed me to be able to take her review class so I know I will pass next time. :yeah: All glory be to God Jesus Christ.
