NCLEX Takers Support Thread - page 45

If you will be taking NCLEX and would like to be prayed for, can we start a fourm for this. I know that some folks are not into prayer and I don't want to offend anyone, but I sure need it!... Read More

    Took my test yesterday and finished with 85 questions. It took me over 2 hours to answer them so I was getting nervous that I would run out of time if I got all 205 (LPN). I was surprised and happy when it shut off, I'd been praying for 85.
    I had many SATA questions and med questions, many that i was unfamiliar with. Also a lot of prioritization. While I felt unsure about a lot of my answers, (I actually know for sure that I got one of those med ones wrong since I just saw a commercial for it :wink2, I walked out of there feeling pretty good. Thanks for the prayers, I'm praying for you all too and will let you know when I find out my results.

    Hi everyone-- I have a question.

    I have already taken the NCLEX once and unfortunately I didn't pass (106 questions if you were wondering...) I think it was completely my fault because I thought that since I did well in nursing school there was no chance I wouldn't pass, but oh how wrong I was.

    ANWAYS-- I am scoring like 55-65% on my Kaplan tests and about the same on other question sets I have found. I am scheduled to take it again on Sept 16, but I do not know if I am doing well enough to take it...

    I feel that since failing, I have learned SO MUCH INFORMATION (props to the random fact thread as well as my other studying) but what do you guys think?? Postpone or what? Unfortunetly I have a job lined up so I can't really put it off for that much longer. They were nice enough to give me a second chance after my first attempt, but I really can't blow it this time around....

    Any thoughts?? HELP?? haha please I just need some advice.

    Thanks! KEBFDC

    Thank you all for the prayers but I guess, it's not to be. Just found out that I failed but I'm not done yet...
    My prayers are with all the test takers... may God lend you His wisdom in answering the questions, Amen.

    Hi everyone! this is my situation right now, i am an american citizen but graduated from nursing school in the philippines.im back in boston and i am working as a nursing assistant...i know you all must be thinking...take the NCLEX already. i really want to but paper works in the philippines are taking so long. the state i am in is asking for many requirements such as having to go thru cgfns. and when i read posts about people just being able to get the nclex already, really frustrates me. so i really want to take it. i went to kaplan in the philippines and i learned alot from it. and its been a couple of months already and i dont want to drain out what ive learned because as time goes buy...you kinda forget and ur head goes blank. as i mentioned i am working as a nursing assistant in a nearby rehab place. my goodness...its tough work...as in physical tough work, your on your feet the whole day for 8 hours! and i told myself how can i study? work like crazy and study at home. and they are working me 40 hours a week pa! and the pay sucks...just because i studied nursing school in the philippines, they dont wanna give me the same pay as a nursing student in america workng part time there...i mean come on...we're doing the same job and ur just a student. i thought i would learn from working at a real hospital setting in a america that i would be able to apply it to NCLEX but no...you actually dont learn and people in america really dont go by the book like how its described in the NCLEX.
    so i am taking a step back...there is another job offer to work as a recreation therapist which is more mellow and works with geriatrics but you do more postive things together and definitely will not keep me on my feet the whole day. the pay would be lower and i know i was complaining about my salary already at this job but my focus is being able to eally sit down and focus more on my nclex...
    anyone please feel free to comment
    hi, dont ever give up, even though you may take a cut in pay, you will have time to study more, which will be rewarding to pass the NCLEX! Keep your eye on the prize and continue to pray for wisdom to pass with flying colors. Sometimes we have to suffer a little to achieve the
    'star' Good luck. Only take the test when you really feel YOU are ready

    Hello, Be encourage! I took the test over 11 years ago and failed, I just gave up, until now, I started studying faithfully April 08 for two hrs per day Saunders 3rd ed I did 100 questions per night while working full time with three children at home, correction 4 my husband, It was hard trying to stay focus , But I did it. I also wanted to reschudule my test but I didnt the more you keep putting it off the more you might take time off and not study, if you have a goal then stick to it write a note on the frig. I will be a nurse ! Pray on it and study study. Anyway I kept my same appointment went in 3 hrs early and they let me take it then, I was nervous I prayed before the test during the test after the test, I got the Quick Results in 48 hrs I passed! If I could do it I know you could the info from your school is much fresher. You know if you Really been studying and if you ready. Only take it when you feel comfortable . They can't test you on everything. I will pray for you

    Hey all,

    Well, I too am requesting everyone's prayer for success on my NCLEX. I'm scheduled for this upcoming Tuesday. Part of me is ready, but there is that other part of me that is just nervous, scared, and flat out afraid! I know that I have to visualize success and have a positive outlook. But what can I say?!?! I REALLY just want to get this over with and FINALLY be done with all of it but I'm just too nervous. Any words of encouragement and prayers are greatly appreciated! Such as I have all of you in my prayers as well.

    So it's GOD's turn now to multiply the seeds that you have sown..
    I know the harvest time is near and I'm sure it will be a success.

    Hi Mig,

    I felt exactly the same last week and then I read someone's post that reminded me that God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
    2 Timothy 1:7

    That brought me to tears. I had spent weeks studying, but was so shook up. The night before the text I was just quiet and went to bed speaking good things over myself, I asked for prayer here and had my best friend at school and my husband pray for me too. When I got there I felt like I was in a cocoon of peace, I tuned everything else out and made myself focus. The visualizing I had practiced earlier really helped too. When a question didn't seem to be going anywhere, I used the strategies I had practiced, took my best guess and moved on and didn't let it shake me up. The test shut off after 85 questions and I just found out that I passed, praise God!

    All this to tell you that I also thought about rescheduling my test, but went ahead and took it. I don't think we can know all of the answers, but if you have prepared you should know enough to pass. I will be praying for you.

    Julie
