My name is Juliana and I am a RN in the Philippines, graduated in 2007 then I moved to California that same year. I have been trying the NCLEX-RN for 4 years now and after taking it for six times I still haven't passed it. I have tried all review materials out there, from Saunders, Lippincott, Kaplan, HURST, NCSBN learning extention, LaCharity, exam cram, NCLEX 3500 you name it but still no luck and I question myself all the time right after getting the official results on to why. I am not giving up and now that I rediscovered again this community and been reading the posts, I've been motivated and inspired again to hit the books, do the questions and try again one more time. I am not giving up. I don't think I am a horrible nurse when I was in nursing school, in fact, my grades were amazing. I seem to think that the real problem here is me not really focusing on my studies and not giving it a 110%. All I have to say is thank you allnurses for the inspiration. I need to clean up my act and just make it and give all my best since I know in my heart and in my mind that I will become a RN here in the USA.
