I graduated in May with my Associates in Nursing. I was so excited to get out of school so I can start working as a Nurse. I took my Nclex in July and I didn't pass with 78 questions. I was crushed, depressed, you name it. I did take Kaplan and I had a hard time trying to get the stategies and when to assess and implement. Anyway, I took the Kaplan again, and the teacher this time really broke it down and explained everything. I studied over and over and took the Qtrainers 1-7 twice. I was getting 80's and 90's and was so confident.
I recently took the Nclex again, and to my surprise, I did not pass again with 226 questions. I thought I was doing so well on the exam. I recognized the questions and I was really great at priority questions and I had a majority of that. Now, I'm really depressed, stressed, and I don't want to give up on nursing because I love it. However, I have come to ask myself, "WILL I EVER PASS THIS TEST?".
Now, I have just joined this thread and I have been reading how GREAT Suzanne's study plan is. I do have the Saunder's book, but never used it because everyone was telling me how good Kaplan was. I'm ready for a change, and I'm ready to give this a 3rd try and PASS this time..
Suzanne, wherever you are, PLEASE HELP ME.. I don't think my heart can take another FAILURE.. I'm willing and able to do whatever it takes to pass this test, because this is what I was born to do.. If you need my email address, just let me know. THANK YOU IN ADVANCE...
