Failed the cna test twice :(

  1. I'm halfway through LPN school with plans to immediately bridge to RN. I have A's and B's and seem to really get the nursing process, care plans, prioritizing care. However, I can't seem to pass the can exam. Its timed and I think that may be the problem. I just feel really down on myself about it. I hope to go into Peds or Nicu eventually, but, working as a cna while in school seems to be what most of the other students do. Anyone else in the same boat?

    Lots of intelligent and capable people are not good at tests.

    If you're doing so well in nursing school, your issue isn't ability.

    Don't fret; you're probably "out-thinking" the test.

    I wish I could share more; hopefully, someone with CNA test experience will weigh in...

    So sorry you didn't pass the test. I just took the test may 6 and passed the exam and I found it to be very easy it was 60 questions and they gave 90 minutes I was finished with 57 minutes left. I brought the CNA Cram book from amazon it helped me a lot. Just don't give up try again. Always get a good nights sleep and eat breakfast in the AM before the test. Best wishes to you
