Thank you PUMP ACTION NURSE: I called the Nursing board after waiting since the 11th and the lady told me they don't have any info about me yet in their system! but she told me: Never give up!!! so i took it as yes u failed and wait for ur letter around the 10th day after u took your test! It was my 2nd time taking the test! i had my RN-IP couple months ago and after failing the 1st time i lost my job and since then i've been dying of sadness ever second! I thought this 2nd time i was going to make it! i took kaplan twice and i passed all the test 65-75% i don't know what went wrong this time! i have to wait for my letter that will said the areas i had problems with! Thank you for the support! i guess i just have to wait for the letter to make it formal my 2nd failing!

Fairy, don't lose faith. I'm assuming things are kind of slow since you are living in Canada, they might need more time processing these kind of paperwork. Seems like you are hauling major butt with Kaplan scoring that high. I have a feeling that you might be weak in one area because with score like yours on Kaplan you should have no problem passing the test. Anyhow remember I had to wait over a month to get my result, but that one month of doing nothing cleared my head. Then that day came when I got the call. I did not open my failure letter because I was living all over the place when I went to school, so I used my relative's address for my mailing address. I did not even open the letter, my cousin open the letter from Sacramento and told me over the phone that I totally bombed the test and threw the paper away. I did not even know where I stank on that test. All I know was that the NCLEX is no regular test. It is testing your safety and your judgement. I studied, build up my knowledge base and answer questions with the mindset of safety in mind and that is how I made it through. Just keep a positive mental attitude and above all else, don't fret if you fail. Just retake it again. I know it sound easier said than doing it but dont stress yourself out. A stressful mind wont get you anywhere. Just relax and enjoy your hobbies or hang out with friends or relatives till you get the official result. I'm here if you need any help or have any questions.

That's the spirit! :yeah: At least you have a job to pay for those fees, better than me going to mommy and making her pay my dues. I think you are in a better position than most grads who just graduated and have a license, since you are a new grad working as a CNA, after you get your RN license, its a guaranteed RN job since most hospital accept internal applicants than outside applicants. So dont fret. You got something going for you and it seems like you are getting closer to passing that test. Strengthen your weak point and stay focus on the test, I'm sure you will get that license soon. Good luck ;)

To Pump Action...Congratulations!!

Thank you so much for sharing your experience and advice. I'm scheduled to take the NCLEX-RN for the first time on June 17th. I went on this board to read other people's thoughts and experiences on the test. I really love your positive attitude, it's making me feel a little better about the test! I'm taking Kaplan and reviewing the Saunder's book to prepare.

Good luck on your future endeavors! And thank you, once again, for your insight :)

:yeah:Congrat to you for a doing a great job! You have imspired me to continue my journey of taking my nclex for the 3rd time. The 1st 2 times that I took the NCLEX, mentally I feel I was not fully prepared. I took the Hurst review, and I am now reading Kaplan 2010 Edition. Wish me luck, I take my NCLEX exam Sept 14, and I hope this is enough time to get my mind right. I have bad anxiety, but I feel like I'm ready to get this over with. Any suggestions anyone?:smackingf

your post was so inspiring!! i can relate to it. only difference was i was sooo anxious the 1st time. i was crying on the way to the test and during. it was not attractive. but now im starting to study again and i think i will stick studying for a few hours a day. i heard a lot about the delegation book. so i'm going to try that. i just wanted to say congratulations and to everyone who failed the 1st or 2nd time....we will all pass! and this will only make us stronger and better nurses.
