Passed NCLEX RN on my 3rd try!

When I took the exam the first time I didn't study at all. I just wanted to get it done and over with, and did a cram session two days prior. So after I graduated I signed up to take the exam 2 weeks after graduation. Bad idea. So when I failed with 265 questions i was devastated. But the next time I was a little more prepared. I used Saunders NCLEX RN to prepare and no other resources. I was lacking motivation at this point and had a hard time focusing on studying. I did the best I could to stay motivated, it was hard after failing once. So when I though I was ready I took the exam again, and again I failed with 265 questions. I wanted to give up and never take it again, but my husband would not allow it. He continued to motivate me and encourage me daily. So after 3 months since I took the exam I decided to finally give it one more try. So I bought Kaplan and started that program. It was best decision I ever made. It really trains you on how to break down each question. I studied and did the Kaplan program for 3 more months. When the program was over I knew it was time to take the exam again. I was very nervous because this time I really gave it everything and studied so hard!! I studied for 3 hours a day those entire 3 months. Kaplan provides so many questions to practice, it felt like I never ran out of questions to take. All i used was Kaplan. I scheduled by exam. Two days prior I got super nervous and rescheduled for 5 days later. Funny thing is during the last two exams I prayed so hard everyday, and have been disappointed so I stopped praying until this exam day. I went in sat down and started by exam. I was so happy when the computer shut off at 75 questions, but was also sick to my stomach because I though maybe this time I sucked really bad. Why wouldn't i think that? I already failed twice. If you are in the same situation as I am please do not give up. Yes it sucks, and it breaks you down but keep going and keep trying.

CM07 I read your story and that is exactly what I am going through right now I want to give up its frustrating and it's driving me crazy. I help people study for the test and they pass so why not me. I pray everyday and even during the test but I still fail (twice).

It is very depressing. I felt like i was stuck and I could not move forward with life if this was not completed. I was accepting that i could be an LPN forever and that I didn't need to be an RN. I had to fight hard to get myself out of that and get my head right again. It is hard but don't give up, your time will come :)

I did the same thing, today was my 3rd try, and I thought I will not bother to check the result until I will receive the official one. Unfortunately, I was tempted to check by registering again and bad news because they took $200.00 payment even though I do not know if I pass or fail. I chatted the customer service he said the pearsonvue tricks will take your money without returning it whether you pass it or not. I am so sad knowing that pearsonvue has this new tricks. 5o they get our money for not waiting the 48 hours period. I had no idea their new tricks at this time. My agony is double, the waiting for the result which I think I fail and the no refund of my registration :(

Congratulations! Good for you, at least you had a good pop, mine was nothing, so I am sure I fail Again:( then took my registration payment and not refunded. Double sad :( :(.

So if I have this straight, you willingly submitted a payment of $200 (you had to go past two screens confirming your decision to submit payment). You are then angry that Pearson Vue TOOK the payment you offered for another registration? They provided the service of registering you, you paid the fee. That's it.

You aren't being punished, they didn't 'trick' you, YOU tried to play a game (the rules of which are splashed all over this forum). Why do you think you should get a refund for your non-refundable payment, that you submitted KNOWING it was non-refundable? Heck, if anything, since you did not pass twice before today, you might NOT want to do the 'trick' since you stood a pretty good chance of having the payment taken. I just don't get this.
