My results are in...I failed!!

  1. I took the nclex-rn on sat dec 9th. I could not wait so I paid for the quick results and unfortunately I failed. I know that I am not the first or the last but today I feel like I'm the only person on the earth!. I am seeing so many people that have been at this same place, and they seem so positive, I hope that I can get that positive too.

    Does anyone know for NY when I can retest? Some are saying 45 days and others say 90 days. and when do I start to count from the time I get the package in the mail or from today.

    Hang in there! This is not too uncommon. I am not sure about the days but go to your state Nsg Board web site. It is on Tennessee's so I am sure you will find it for New York. Good Luck

    hey girl. i don't know the answers to any of your questions, but i would like to say that my best friend took the nclex 3 times before she passed it. all that i can say is that god has not brought you this far to leave you and if you continue to trust in him then he will give you everything you need. it is already yours because god said so!

    Hey Trini James,

    I also took it twice already and didn't pass. You can't stay down about it. Yes it may hurt at first, but you got to take a little break, regroup, and start to study again. YOU WILL BE AN RN..
    To answer your question, when you get your Candidate Report in the mail, it will specify how long you can wait. Most of the times, it's 45 days. The report will also show you the areas that you need to study more of.
    I hope that helps.
    Stay Positive, Stay Strong, and know that YOU CAN DO IT....

    P.S. I used to live in Brooklyn..

    Sorry to hear that you have a setback in starting your career. The New York Board of Nursing website is a bit confusing, I looked to find the info for you and I couldn't. Perhaps you could contact the school you graduated from they would know. The waiting period before retesting usually starts from the day you took the test.

    oh hey... i've just seen this info about the retake policy

    The National Council of State Boards of Nursing, Inc. (NCSBN) voted at its Dec. 5-7, 2006 meeting to raise the passing standard for the NCLEX-RN examination (the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses). The new passing standard is -0.2100 logits on the NCLEX-RN logistic scale, 0.070 logits higher than the previous standard of -0.2800. The new passing standard will take effect on April 1, 2007, in conjunction with the 2007 NCLEX-RN Test Plan.

    iww posted the wrong info... but here it is...

    The NCSBN retake policy allows candidates to retake their examination 45 days after administration of their examination. Candidates who have applied for licensure with a participating board of nursing will be permitted to take the NCLEX examination eight times a year, but no more than once in any 45-day period, unless limited to fewer retakes by the desired jurisdiction of licensure.
    Note: The following boards of nursing do NOT participate in the 45-day retake period. Candidates are encouraged to contact these boards of nursing for their policy on NCLEX Examination retakes: Georgia-RN, Guam, and Washington.

    I took the Nclex last Nov. 9 and unfortunately failed badly. Now, i got my result after 2 weeks(24 Nov) and re-apply straight away. I book my exam again on Dec. 29. do you think almost a month of studying is enough?

    Best wishes on your next exam. It took me a 3rd attempt to pass, so you are certainly not alone.
