Yep it was so devestating but what can we do other than study like there is nothing else to do. I start an lvn seminar course on the 6th so well see how that goes. Did u get a next test date yet?

yes i have scheduled exactly 45 days of my first exam date.. which is the minimum i have to wait..my theory behind that is if i wait too long, i dont want to forget the base knowledge i already have from nursing school.. our school teachers had encouraged us to test as soon as possible because as time delays, we will forget more things.. therefore; forty five days is enough for me.. i am studying every day, and making sure i address my weaknesses.. i also am going to start kaplan .. and my next exam is going to be in mid august..

The percentage doesn't matter, except to make someone who didn't pass feel worse. If you are the one person whose vehicle gets T-boned in an intersection by someone traveling at 70 miles/hr, it doesn't help you feel any better to know that you are in the 0.001% of people this happens to. If you didn't pass, start preparing to pass it the next time around. Good luck.

ohh.. i dont know how you will have to go about..but here in ny.. all you have to do is reapply at pearsonvue.. register at pearsonvue.com and pay the 200 dollars.. and then the ATT is sent in the email.. i dont have to pay the BON another 90 dollars for license fee.. and the my ATT starts from my time of "validity" which is 45 days from my initial exam.. hope this helps.
