never give up on nclex!

Posted

Hi everyone! It's great to become a member of this community where we can share thoughts and experiences to people who shares the same. I failed my nclex-rn exam the first time. It was really a horrible feeling knowing that you tried your best to review and yet you didn't make it. Well maybe i haven't pushed myself that much but I really did my best. I think that's what's more important. Doing our best in every endeavor we make. It makes us more eager and determined to be successful the next time around.

I'm reviewing again for the nclex exam and I hope and pray that the next time I sit in front of that computer, i'd finally make it. I'm talking in behalf of all re-takers, that no matter what and how often we fail we still find within ourselves to stand up and never give up in our dream of becoming a Registered Nurse. Believe!!! Good luck to all of us! God Bless!

I hope to hear from you and share your nclex story too!:)

Good luck on retaking the nclex. As you mention never to give up and everything happens for reason always remember that. I havent posted my story here on allnurses, I just pretty much encouraged others since I failed back in October. I have failed the nclex-rn fours times already and though I have gone through my periods of depression if it wast for the Lord I dont know where I would have got the strength to retake again. I have a major testing anxiety and my PCP even prescribed me a beta blocker to her with the anxiety that I was having. I recently received my ATT to retake again and this time I feel confident and prepared. I will never give up on my dream of becoming an RN and I know this is my calling. God willing when I sit for boards again (next month) I will pass:-)

A few scriptures keep me motivating daily: Mark 11:24, Philip 4:13 and 14:1

A friend from all nurses;-) introduce a pretty good study plan to me and for the past month I have been using it. I study daily for 2.5 hours with a short break in between. For right now I am doing content then questions to follow. I am also using flash cards which seem to help me a lot because thats what I used when I was in nursing school to help study.

If I can give anyone advice, do not give up. Keep trying till you pass and try not to get discouraged because you will not be the first person to fail. Always remember to study and pray hard and surround yourself around positive people. Good to everyone taking boards. God Bless

You might not mean any harm but telling people that you don't know their studying plans at all a stranger so to say is really like coming off rude and degrading.Post your nclex tips and leave it at that.Allnurses.com is about nurses encouraging others that are there already or need help getting there.Say what you did to help you when you were in there shoes instead of the opposite.Example: nlcex taker A is not sure of studying management;nclex passer B would say i study two hours everyday for two months from so and so time till so and so time.You get it now:D.Congrats on passing your nclex.

What's the total number of times the board can be taken in the US?

Depends on the state. Some allow unlimited attempts where others have restrictions

Well when I had call back in august they said there was no limit or experation period. The only thing you have to worry about is paying the 200 dollars. However you can call back and confirm.

Just to clarify that is just for new york city. Sorry but good luck to everyone taking the test!

and also in california,no limit in taking d exam..:)gudluck to us future pinoy nurses..:)

No offense to anyone but if I failed the NCLEX more than once, I wouldn't tell people on here or anywhere else. I saw a post where someone finally passed the NCLEX on the 7th or 8th try! Makes me nervous to think of that!

Makes me wonder what schools are teaching (or should I say what they AREN'T teaching) that so many people are failing multiple times and I thank God every day that I passed my boards on the first try!

I know back in my day if you failed 3 times you had to take a refresher course and if you didn't pass the 4th time, you had to go to school again (Illinois).

Good luck and God Bless all of you who are taking it the test!:nurse:

Florida is the same if you fail 3 times you have to take a refresher coarse I do not know what they do after that if a person fails--but I have a friend who failed the 1st time and passed on the 2nd time than I have a friend that is still taking it he has not passed yet and I have been a nurse now for almost 2 yrs (we graduated from the same class) but its not bc he isn't smart but he has a language barrier so I keep my fingers crossed for him this next time---and good luck to you also and anyone one else about to take the NCLEX I hear its harder now than when I took it :nurse::redpinkhe Keep in mind it is well worth it (at least to me) :heartbeat

As a new nursing grad and newly minted RN, I can tell you that 98% of the coursework and testing associated with the nursing program at my school (a well-regarded community college with highly competative admissions) had no relevance whatsoever to the NCLEX. My school's first-time pass rate at just over 84% - not horrible but far from great - I think reflects this. Other nursing programs in the area that teach with the NCLEX in mind do much, much better. One local BSN program that relatively recently started emphasizing the NCLEX in their curriculum saw their pass rate rise to over 98% over the past 2 years. Several local diploma progams are also in the 90's with occasional excursions to 100% (though we are talking small numbers here, averaging 50 to 60 students for each program).

While I understand that nursing school should be more than a prep course for the NCLEX, the unfortunate fact is that passing the NCLEX is the ultimate goal and the milestone used to measure both schools and students. It would seem that the schools and programs emphasizing the NCLEX enjoy much higher first-time pass rates than schools like mine that basically leave students on their own to pass the test. Whether this is at the expense of a broader nursing education is not clear though.
