Take a deep breath and say, "I can do it!":up:
JUST BECAUSE YOU STRUGGLED IN NURSING SCHOOL DOESN'T MEAN THAT YOU AREN'T GOING TO PASS. Nursing school is designed to be hard because they only want to make sure that they are putting out the best of the best. Whether or not you barely passed the program you need to take into consideration all the other people that might have applied to the program and didn't get in! Be proud that you made it to where you are. Being a single parent of four and working full time is hard but let that be your drive to keep pushing forward! I am the oldest of ten children and worked thirty hours a week, helping my Mother, while in a Nursing program that was four years. If I could do it so can you. In my times of desperation, I looked at my family and said to myself I was going to make it for them. BE PROUD; let your family and yourself be your desire to succeed :heartbeat.
The best advice for you that I can tell you is to invest into a review course. Whether its Kaplan, ATI, HURST, or anything else do it because these programs are designed to help you pass! I used Kaplan and did an online review with the materials that they provided and I passed my first time with 82 questions. YOU CAN DO IT! The NCLEX isn't about how smart you are, it's about how safe and competent you are.
After you have figured out what review program you're going to do, schedule your exam based on the amount of time you need to complete your course. It took me 5 weeks to finish my course and thats when I i scheduled it based on that.
YOU CAN DO THIS!!!!!:w00t:
