Please pass the emesis basin!

  1. I feel so sick! I took my NCLEX-RN today and felt like I knew nothing at all. I guessed at just about every question. I had 105 questions mostly priority, delegation, one select all that apply, medications I never had heard of before and patient teaching. I feel like nothing could have prepared me for this exam. I did so many questions on Saunders and Lippencott Cd's and did Kaplans strategy book but now I feel like it was a big waste of my time. Everyone tells me this is a normal feeling after taking the NCLEX but I feel like a such complete failure I could just cry.

    Hang in there Shanna. everyone I know (including me) felt this way after taking the test. I felt I was guessing on a lot of the questions and also had drug ?? that I had never even heard of. It's a normal (but awful) feeling. Chin up!

    Good luck on your results, Shanna. Try to get out and do something fun while you wait.

    pass it on when you're done...i need it too after my abject and utter failure at the nclex this morning. yrrgh! i can't believe how stupid, incompetent and uneducated i am...what was i thinking? if i weren't so macho (laugh) i'd be weeping like a baby. glad i ain't alone in the heartbreak though.
