I will keep you in prayers. I have come to realize that when our paths are derailed, God has better plans! I will pray for you and God's paths to become more clearly laid out for you.

love hugs and prayers

Sorry you didn't pass. I agree with those that said the NCLEX 4000. My hubby used it and said that some of the questions on the NCLEX were right from the CD. After using it for a few weeks before the boards he felt confident and walked out of the NCLEX saying that it was the easiest test he ever took. Good Luck :)

I failed my first time too. It sucked. I felt terrible. But I knew that one day did not determine what I knew or didnt know. I went in there so nervous that I could not focus. 265 questions of pure nerves. That was a year ago...

Today: I feel I still have a lot to learn but overall I feel like I am a good nurse. Last night for example my night manager was asking patients how their stay is going. And my patient told her that I was one of the best nurses she ever had. As I walked away I over-heard my night manager tell her that I was a really good nurse. My primary manager has asked me to start training for charge. She wants me for permanent charge on my weekend. She has also asked me to sign up for the next preceptor class our hospital has to offer.

The moral of the story...

That test says nothing about what you know and what you dont know. It shows what kind of a test taker you are. Im the test anxiety victim.

Advice for you...

RELAX. When I failed the first time I promised myself that I would study in that 45 days. I didnt. I worked and spent family time. Each night I would promise myself that I would start the next day. Well the next day never came. When the 45 days was up and I sat down to take my boards I was no more prepared than I was on the first attempt. I was just more relaxed. I knew what to expect. I knew that my support system was there if needed. And I knew that I COULD and WOULD do it.

GOOD LUCK TO YOU!!!!! RELAXATION IS THE BEST ADVICE I CAN GIVE YOU...from experience.

I am so sorry to hear you did not pass. My daughter's room mate graduated in 2008 and she did not pass on her first attempt either. She delayed her retake for almost a year.We just heard last week that she passed. You can do this. Don't give up. Get some advice as others have said and move on. You got through nursing school and that is quite an achievement. I have worked with some great nurses who needed to take NCLEX more than once.

Thank you. I know my weakness is Pharm. I am starting with that first. Any suggestions how to study/memorize signs/symptoms, what the med is for, contraindications?

OP you can try:

Kaplan NCLEX-RN: Medications You Need to Know for the Exam (Kaplan NCLEX-RN Exam) - 2008 I believe?

Chicago Review Press Pharmacology Made Easy for NCLEX-RN Review and Study Guide(Pharmacology Made Easy for NCLEX series) - Although, I believe it was published in 2001 so it may be a little outdated lol.

Or, maybe one of those "Pharmacology Made Easy" books.

I think if you keep taking the questions on the DVDs mentioned in all the previous posts, you'll do really well. I believe the DVDs are divided up into sections so you can focus on your weak points. Give yourself enough time to take it again so you can prepare yourself and you'll do great. But beforehand, pamper yourself lol: Get a mani, pedi, spa treatment, anything to center yourself and give yourself confidence. Best of luck again and let us know the outcome!
