    i feel you.. i've been searching countless hours for an entry level RN job.. and i can barely find one!! arrrrrggghhhh!! most of the opening i see require "at least one year acute nursing experience required." i don't even bother applying for those.. and thats the PROBLEM!! coz i can barely find job openings for RN's that dont require expirience!!

    what will happen to us "new" nurses now!?:angryfire

    I know at least one person who got all 265 and passed... remember the number of questions you get really doesn't affect if you pass or fail because you can pass or fail on any number of questions!
    just what this guy said.. i on the other hand failed at 265 at my first try.. thankfully i passed the 2nd time! just remember the number of questions you answered does not determine the results of your exam..

    the best thing to do is wait for your results.. until then, keep yourself busy to stop worrying so much.. hope you get good news!! good luck!!

    i just found out yesterday that i passed the NCLEX RN!! (wooOohooOoo!! thank god!!) but come to think about it, i have no idea what to do next!!

    the mail that i received only had a a piece of paper stating that "enclosed is my new registered nurse card.." and that "i will receive additional licensing information under separate cover in 3 weeks.."

    any ideas on what those "additional licensing information" might be? Can i just start applying for a job now or do i have to wait for that mail? im on california btw..

    i have no clue what to do next.. any help/advice will be appreciated!!

    (this is long!... sorry, but it has been a long process)

    Become a pro at prioritization. Seriously, these are freebe questions too once you get good at them. Kaplan makes this easy to figure out. Soon you'll be like... DUH, when you see the answer.
    i failed my 1st take at 265.. i had like 60ish% prioritization questions.. i wish i knew how to answer them better.. then my whole take on the nclex will be more like a "freebie"...

    When you say the questions confused you, what do you mean? Were they select all that apply, prioritize? I am studying the Saunders book, and I was just wondering what is different on the NCLEX that is the most confusing?
    i was confused a lot with the prioritization questions.. i had tons of them when i sat for my nclex.. like 60% are prioritization.. failed at 265.. i think one factor is i lacked on test taking strategies.. i was ok on content.. cause i read, studied, answered all the questions on the saunders book (including cd).. and saunders has really good content.. but in order to slay the beast, u'll need content + strategy..

    wow! this is inspiring.. i just failed my 1st take on nclex and im now considering kaplan.. i used saunders as my review material.. unfortunately it didn't quite cut it.. its not that its bad material or anyting.. i actually learned a lot from saunders! yup! read and studied the whole book, used the cd.. great content! but when i sat for my nclex, i was getting these questions that i felt that i didnt know how to answer and confused me alot.. i think this is one of the main reason on why i failed.. i think i need to work on my test taking strategies and on how to answer smart.. and from what i have read from the threads here, kaplan is really good at diong just that..!

    when did you took your exam?,,i know its hard to accept that fact. im still waiting for my result but im grieving now coz i guess i failed since somebody here got his result after taking the exam last 19th..i took mine last 17th and till now i still doesnt have my result..maybe this would help,,my aunt told me to stand up when you fail since it didnt hurt us physically, there are some things that we will fail and it is a learning and we should not end our life or be depressed for one failure..its ok to cry and grieve for some time but to remind you its not the end of your life..stand up and go on with your life, study again and take it..
    i took my exam last dec 8, i recieved my results last dec 22.. im just pulling myself together now and im just tryng to enjoy the holidays.. tnx for the support! i really do hope you pass!! best of luck to you!! let me know what happens ok?

    I did saunders cd and i was scoring between 75 and 83% and i felt really confident.I had a lot of priortization that i coulnd not figure out.assingment for CNA,no activites of daily living.After 100 questions i was so confused the complex questions i was geting and kept using all my strategies.I will wait for th printout and see where i have to work on.I will also study priotization and delegation by LaCharity.Thank you guys
    -ive also used saunders 4th ed as my study material.. on the exam cd i was scoring 70% - 80% even on the alternate questions.. so i was feeling confident too.. i failed at 265 btw, and about 60% of my questions were prioritization! just like you, i had TONS of prioritization questions! i dont know if it was just me or it was the questions, but the prtoritization questions i had were like really hard and confusing for me.. coz the standard "ABC's" technique wouldn't work against those type questions..
