I graduated from nursing school in May 2004, and I failed boards three times. I am getting ready to retake them for the first time in 5 years within the next 2 months and I am signing up for the Hurst Review. Does anyone have any advice or tips for me?

Same story I failed 3 times too and just got my test last Sat. Still don't know my results but I don't feel good when I went out of the testing center. I knew that my last question was wrong so I think I failed again. :eek:

Your last question will not be a bases for pass/fail. You can fail also by having correct answer on your last question. I'm not giving you any false hope but I strong feel you ve done. It. How many items before the pc shut down?

I did 75 questions. I wanted to be positive too but its hard. I'm emotionally unstable now. I gave my all to everything: I work full time (40 hrs/wk), a toddler to attend to and studying after everything. I know its hard but I managed to do this in order to pay bills. I cannot afford to pay another retake or take online review anymore. (sorry am just venting)

Look mate here's my equation you only need 60 q to answer. Coz 15 of those are not counted Qs ,so that means out of 60 you will need more right than wrong. At least I think 15-20 wrong answer. I maybe wrong on this but on the review I have watch this is what I understand. So last question wrong is not bases who knows it might be a pilot Qs .i know how you feel , like you I have 2 toddler. Also work as full time RN here in England. Be strong. Have faith on himJoe
