I FAILED!!! and i feel so bad!!

Specializes in Sub-Acute care unit, geriatrics.

After waiting for 72 hrs I just found out yesterday morning that I failed. All along I thought i have pass. I dont know what went wrong. I did my best I took kaplan classroom course for 3 mos, i finished saunders, im always getting good grades on my test drills and yet i failed. This is my first time for NCLEX-RN but i feel so bad. Next year i will already move to NY i just thought I will have a new career as I move their. But im still positive I will take the test again, im just waiting for the NYS educ evaluation form so i will know what went wrong.

Now, i just really dont know where to start again? Coz i devoted most of my time studying and just to find out that I fail really makes me sad. Pls can anyone help me start all over again?

You must be heart-broken.

Give Suzanne's Plan a shot. And take off from studying until you get the breakdown of where you need work.

I am so sorry to hear this, but take strength in knowing that this is not the last time that you can take the exam. I suggest that you take some time off and regroup. Don't focus on not passing but what you are going to do differently next time to pass. I wish you well and good luck! Hugs.

The pass rate for those that have trained in the US is about 85%. However for those that trained out of the US, the passing rate is cut in half to about 44 to 45%.

Best suggestion that I can make to you is to never spend more than three hours per day preparing. To do more and your brain is not going to retain it.

You can get thru this exam.

jhowanna, give yourself a week off before you start on Suzanne's plan. Remember start with her first tip and study as if you haven't sat the exam before. Good luck next time and don't give up

As all other posts have already adviced to use Suzanne's Plan. I am a firm believer (esp since just passing my boards) I was skeptical at first...BUT there is something different about her plan than others.

I'm sorry to hear about your results :icon_hug: hugs to you. Give yourself a break for awhile and then go to the sticky for Suzanne's Plan and give it a shot. It's worth it!

GOOD LUCK!! :heartbeat:heartbeat

Thanks Suzanne. The percentage really makes me sad. I understand and im just thinking if whats the difference between the education here and there in US since we're just using the same book.

I will sign up for ur plan soon once im ready, i want to be emotionally ready as well so everything will start right. Thank you so much for your help.:nuke:

Hi roze,

I went to Kaplan classroom course here in the Philippines and used the 2 books that they gave me (Course book and Basics, which are similar:nuke:), Saunder's 3rd ed and assignment, prioritization and delegation by la charity and cd's. So since i will start Suzannes plan soon too. I will discard my old books first.;) We can do this!

Don't be to discouraged, i failed the exam twice.

You need some time off and then start studying again.

I took ten days off and started Suzanne's Plan which I believe will help me.

You should try it.

Thanks everyone. I really appreciate all the support and advice that your giving to me. Yes, I will take a little break first and be sure that I am emotionally and mentally ready before I sign up for Suzannes plan. With your help, support and God's grace I know I can get through this.:nuke:

For the thread that I post before that I stopped at 75 since its closed already i will just post it here.

Yes, I will take the test again and will just need to prepare myself emotionally and mentally and I will now use Suzanne's plan though I will still call kaplan and see what they can do (since I heard from my classmates that many failed).

Regarding the retrogression, I don't have any worries with it since I have a different visa and will already move to NY next year.:nuke:

I feel for you I failed 4 times and hate to admit it... I tried Kaplan also and didn't work for me. It's one thing when you feel like you failed and prepare yourself for failing but when your sure and feel good that you passed and then BOOM.. you fail. I know what your saying I felt like I passed this time and sat for 245 questions which stunk. Take time to get over feeling bad and get right back on the train and try something else and retake them again and again. Hope you feel better soooon and Good Luck!!

SOrry to hear you didn't pass. But you are not alone. I took the test 3 times. It can be done. Take everyone's advice and take some time off, then come back refreshed and study like you have never taken this before. And definately do Suzanne's plan. Stay positive, and tell yourself that you WILL pass next time. Good luck!:icon_hug:

I'm a newbie here. I've read alot about the Suzanne's Plan and I'm planning to try it.:nuke:

hello jhowana, I know how you feel because I have failed once as well. Just don't give up. Take a break and when you get your confidence back start studying again. Try Suzanne's Plan I've read alot of successful stories using it....Godbless! :nuke:
