4th nclex attempt

Hey there! I'm Katherine and graduated from nursing school back in 2015. I have taken the nclex 4 times, have failed 3 times (took it for the fourth time today). I am feeling super discouraged. I live in Florida which means that after failing 3 times you have to do mandatory Remediation course with clinicals, not to mention that I got my education in PR and when I came here they made me take the same course because my credits weren't enough...so yes I have taken the same course twice. 

Anyway...today I took the test again and I feel like I bombed it. The test was basically alzheimer, OB and peds questions and to be honest I kept getting questions that seemed waaaay to simple (since is an adaptive test of course it makes me feel like I did awful). Towards the end, question 77 I had no clue what they were asking and the last question was the oddest question I have ever seen. Needless to say...I'm feeling devastated already.

Needed to get the frustration out in here since I really don't want to share with my family.

I'm sorry you're in this situation 😞 Although doing a remediation course is not ideal, I think it will be extremely helpful to you. If you fail a 4th time, there is either a large amount of knowledge you are missing (you have to have a really in-depth knowledge), or you're not studying the right way. Your educators might be able to figure out an ideal study plan for you. I think it would be helpful to get a personal tutor if this is the case. 

Also, do you have a psychological disorder that might be hindering you? For example, if you have crippling anxiety regarding the NCLEX, you might have to treat that first. You can have all the knowledge in the world, but you can fail the NCLEX again if you are just too anxious to focus.

If it makes you feel better, I thought I completely bombed the NCLEX as well when I took it. I think most people feel that way, regardless of whether they passed or not. Don't give up! I know you can do anything you set your mind to!! 🙂

It is what it is, if you failed then you can move on and keep studying. The sooner you find out the better. It will hurt if you failed, but if you passed and when you pass, you will forget all about failing. You will be able to move on with your life.
