Third attempt

Junebug14 specializes in Med/Surg.

I scheduled my third attempt for the 25th. I feel I need to push it back further because I really don't feel prepared..I don't/can't fail another time and my anxiety is getting the best of me. I have been getting very frustrated and losing my ability to concentrate after I do practice questions that I don't do very well on. I don't know what I am to do or how to not be so scared. Any suggestions?

Push you date back and make an appointment to see your doctor. Maybe he can prescribe something for your anxiety.

Thanks, I really feel I am going to reschedule, just needed some feedback from someone else too

Just take a deep breath, believe in yourself and most importantly Pray for more strength and guidance!!!

How many questions did you get your second attempt? And what have you done differently? I would reschedule if you arent feeling prepared you have taken the test twice before so you know the drill. Make sure you are ready. I will be taking my 3rd attempt soon as well

Have you done a review? I suggest doing that. They are quite helpful.

I did a Hurst review before my second attempt. I feel it helped tremendously, but I obviously still failed. The first time, I got all 265 and honestly I had almost no sleep and I found myself not critically thinking.. The second time, it shut off around 208. It was loaded with priority questions. I felt ok during the test, but broke down when I got to my car.

Along with my Hurst review, I used some Kaplan questions, ,my ati tests from when I was in school, nclex mastery and lippencotts. I guess I just didn't study quite enough.

I am in huge financial difficulties right now and simply can't afford to pay for another review. I am trying to use the resources at hand.
