Hello Everyone, I have been a lurker for quite some time.. And figured its finally time for me to post as round 2 is getting closer and closer.. I took the RN boards for the first time on June 21, 2004 and got 265 questions and failed!! I was devestated because I was never at the bottem of my class and am in the Nursing honor society.. Well for round 2 I have signed up for the Kaplan course and will be taking the test again the day after the course ends.. August 2-5 is the course and then I will take the test on August 6, at 9:30.... Does anyone know statistics for passing on second try.. I read in one of the Pearsonvue books that 85% pass first time, does anyone know what the percentage is for the second time? Any advice is appreciated!! Good Luck to those waiting and CONGRATULATIONS to all the new RN's..

~Cheryl ( hopefully soon to be a RN)

Sorry to hear that....

Not to bum you out, but the statistics are bad on repeat test takers..... It is a good idea to take a review course, I hope the instructors are good!

I failed the first time also, and in case you didn't know....if you got 265 questions then you were borderline. Keep studying...you will pass eventually. I got that information in the letter from the BON....It keeps going until it can make a definate decision. Just because we get the questions we happen to not know doesn't mean we wouldn't make good nurses. I love OB and Peds and know it pretty well, but those med/surg questions got me....I learned my weaknesses and hopefully I will pass....in OCT....the waiting is gonna drive me nuts!! Good luck next time....I just try to look at it like I am just a stay at home mom with no job and no plans to get one. (Even though I wish so much that I was starting my new life as a RN, oh well one day)
