Sorry to hear you failed. Try Suzanne's plan very successful for foreign trained nurses. I passed on my third attempt and I am sure you will, just don't give up

King James,

I am sorry to hear your news. I failed the first time at 75, and I was not happy to find that at that number, so many passed but me!

If you are practicing as a RN where you are, try not to apply any of your knowledge in the real world with the nclex. Remember the NCLEX tower of nursing. everything on the exam reflects the tower of nursing, not the real world. that's what messed me up, when I took the exam the first and second time. Now I am going in on the 1st of july, as if I never took it before (exception: preparing for the surrounding and what to expect in the room, etc).

When you review...start over, don't just go over your weakest areas. read rationales whether correct or incorrect, go over everything.

use one source.Suzanne's plan helped me out with content tremendously.

schedule your re-test date and stick with it, and gear up for a good 4-6 week review. Suzanne's plan is 45-days long, but it may be more, if you need to go over the chapters in the book.

Good luck, and don't let this exam defeat you, we have to bust the break to get to the other side!

:loveya:

sorry to hear that james... failing is painful. i've had a lot of failures in my life and i still struggle with them. it comes and goes, but what helps me is that I pray to God everyday for strength and guidance to accept the things I can't change...

the following might put things into perspective...somebody sent it to me... hope it helps.

Be encouraged!

This is God. Today I will be handling All of your problems for you. I

do Not need your help. So, have a nice day.

I love you.

P.S. And, remember...

If life happens to deliver a situation to you that you cannot handle, do

Not attempt to resolve it yourself! Kindly put it in the SFGTD

(something for God to do) box. I will get to it in MY TIME. All

situations will be resolved, but in My time, not yours.

Once the matter is placed into the box, do not hold onto it by

worrying about it. Instead, focus on all the wonderful things that

are present

in your life now.

- If you find yourself stuck in traffic, don't despair. There are people

in this world for whom driving is an unheard of privilege.

- Should you have a bad day at work; think of the man who has been out of

work for years.

- Should you despair over a relationship gone bad; think of the person who

has never known what it's like to love and be loved in return.

- Should you grieve the passing of another weekend; think of the woman in

dire straits, working twelve hours a day, seven days a week to feed her

children.

- Should your car break down, leaving you miles away from assistance;

think of the paraplegic who would love the opportunity to take that

walk.

- Should you notice a new gray hair in the mirror; think of the cancer

patient in chemo who wishes she had hair to examine.

- Should you find yourself at a loss and pondering what is life all about,

asking what is my purpose? Be thankful. There are those who didn't live

long enough to get the opportunity.

- Should you find yourself the victim of other people's bitterness,

ignorance, smallness or insecurities; remember, things could be worse.

You could be one of them!

- Should you decide to send this to a friend; Thank you. You may have

touched their life in ways you will never know!

Now, you have a nice day.

God

God has seen you struggling,

God says it's over.

A blessing is coming your way

I totally understand how devastating this news can be, before finding out my results I was a nervous wreck and planned to take it over......You too can prevail against all this....I will continue to pray for you and others because you have come to far to turn back now.......YOU WILL DEFEAT THAT DREADED TEST BELIEVE THAT.
