Congratulations on passing the NCLEX - I am so proud of you for not giving up!! And to all of you who are not giving up and getting ready to give it another go - I am so proud of you, as well!

It is much easier to give up than to figure out what you did wrong, and go at it again.

I know so many nursing students who KNOW the material, but are poor test-takers. Or perhaps English is not their first language. Or perhaps they have a mild learning disability, or ADD. That doesn't mean that they don't know the material. They do.

I also know students who don't really know the material very well, don't read the book, and certainly don't know how to apply what they are supposed to be learning practically... but are good test-takers that can pass any test. The end result is... they pass, but they still don't know the material.

I guess the best advice is - know yourself and know yourself well. If being a nurse is your passion and your calling, then go. Do it again and again until you have mastered the material and conquered the test. And have all the confidence and faith in the world that you are doing the right thing.

If nursing is NOT your passion and your calling, then perhaps you should think twice. This is not a career for sissies! LOL!

Again - congratulations on a job VERY well done!!!

See, all those who posted at what a mean, negative person I was to attack those poor, dedicated people who keep writing their exams are perhaps a good part of what is wrong with nursing. I didn't attack the first poster, nor did I suggest anything about any other responder's personality or intelligence. Yet, because I suggest that this symptom of multiple attempts to pass an exam is an indication of a problem within our profession, MY intelligence and my nursing compassion is ridiculed and slammed. The problem is not those of us who question, it it those of you who blindly, fanatically keep insisting 'we're ok, we're ok, we're good people because we want to nurse'

This symptom, and judging by the number of responsers who also had to write multiple times, is a more and more common one. If you start seeing a symptom repeated over and over in a population do you just ignore it and tell people to keep trying and they will get better, or do you look at the environment, situation, population and potential causes of the symptom and the illness it is spawning?

There is something seriously wrong with a profession that takes 3-6 years of your life, and money and then does not prepare you to pass the licencing exam. If you have to study and teach yourself everything you need to know to pass the exam, what was the schooling doing for you? Teaching you to not queston?

wowm heathiam!!! why don't you just tell her how you really feel about her???

i'd say you can't really know her, either.

i see a problem with new nurses getting a lousy orientation from long-timers too frustrated and burned out to even care anymore (and i'm 56, nursing since 1973, longer than you).

and i see student nurses ignored, not spoken to, not even given a bit of recognition when they are so thirsty just to get a little hands-on. and what are they thinking as they struggle to finish the hard years, take the test, however many times, and pass with enough confidence to face some of the beasts that seemed to not care if they learned in the first place?

yum yum, eat 'em up, don't forget your napkin.

i'd say this nurse deserves a chance to show herself, to learn and grow. she obviously has a brain in her head or she wouldn't have made it through nursing school, right?

so instead of ripping her, and blaming her for the demise of good nursing practice, how about a little encouragement?

me thinks she's struggled enough.

you and judu1106 are way off course here. no one has judged anyone. all that is being said by "healthiam" is that she, as will as others are concerned about the future education being taught to these new nurses coming through. for some reason certain people on this line are not educated enough to understand "healthiam" intent. you and jadu1106 are way out of line here. what was a constructive post by "healthiam" has been turned out to be non constructive and uneducated by the two of you. you need to take a breath and re-read her post!! stop slinging mud and if you cannot say anything constructive then move onto another post.

shame on you!:confused:

the last response i posted in regards to what you said was going to be my last, but it seems like you are taking a direct hit at me and for what? you do not know me either.

whatever worked for you worked for you. but it seems to me that all of the years you worked getting all of your degrees, didn't do much for your intelligence!! thanks for sharing your process of intellectually going nowhere!

seriously, jadu1106, you should have left the post alone as you said, but no, you continue to show your lack of professionalism with your remarks. you are so "green" at this, because you would know that, nurses today barely have time for anymore than meds, and admissions (because you are so young in this, it is more the norm to have several admissions on your shift, thus no time for sit-down tea chats). this is the sad thing about nursing; as those days are long gone in hospital care. as far as you stating that "healthiam" is not intelligent and she is making hits on you" is showing your own "youth" and ignorance at this profession. you should pray that a nurse like "healthiam" is working in the same hospital as you so that you can depend on someone who is as professional, constructive, and can think on her feet (which is more important when you're dealing with a life and death situation). it's not the "sit down talks" with your patients that will save their lives; its nurses who think on their feet and know the answers quickly (and not on their 6th or 7th try). remember that there is not second chance when you are dealing with very ill patients.

think clearly and take this as a life lesson - which is an important lesson in your growth as a nurse. i pray you look at some of the things you have posted and take the time to realize that they were not; thus only then you will realize that you are on the track to real growth and leadership. do not attempt to work with the attitude that you have now as it will erase all the goodness you do have.

i do wish you well for your future growth in the field of nursing. good tip for all: please continue with furthering your education. good luck! :)

to heathiam and those just like you.....it is soo sad that the world is filled with such negative people. after reading your post i had to call all my friends and family members who encouraged me to try again and paid for my test and thank them from the bottom of my heart. there are many doctors, lawyers, teachers, emts, licensed contractors etc who didn't pass thier tests on the 1st try, do you look down on them too. i'm not doubting that you are a good nurse, however you would be a great nurse if you learned to humble yourself! stop thinking you're superior to others just because you "passed your nclex on the first try". change your ways and stop spreading negativity to others.....with that said i pray god bless you.

no once did "healthiam" state she was superior, yet you show your lack of education by interpreting your own judgments into what she was conveying in her post. one of the first things you learn in nursing is not to judge and you are doing just that! go back and read her posts where "healthiam" states that she is worried about the new students who are either not catching on or just did not prepare themselves enough for the boards. no one took shoots at "juda1160" who thinks holding hands with a patient is enough all the time. i'm for all the human touch a nurse can give; however, i'd much prefer a nurse who can make a life/death decisions on her feet as oppose to a nurse who cannot make this decision, but can hold the pt's hand. i want the nurse who can think on her feet and perform the right procedure the first time; as you know nurses do not usually get a second chance to save a patients life.

please re-read "healthiam" posts and think before you shoot out a post that is unprofessional, uneducated and very negative.:crying2: as far as asking god to bless her, trust me; god blesses everyone all the time!

Thanks to kty1, at the very least I know that there are others out there who see the problems and are concerned enough to speak up.

Thanks to everyone for the positive and encouraging words...I am afterall still young and still learning, that is why its important to teach and encourage instead of negative words and discouraging comments.

Can the moderator please close this thread?

Thank you!
