Today is my day!

After a long long summer of studying things have finally come together. I took the boards in July and failed. I went right back to the books. Put my all into the beast.

I retested on Saturday. The computer shut down at 75 and I felt pretty good. As time went on I started to have those feelings of despair. Couldn't think straight!

Then today at 12 pm. 49 hours later there was the word I have been waiting for "pass".

This board has been very helpful mentally and especially finding out I wasn't alone.

Good luck to all!

Thank you all so much!

Kay-- you can do this. Feel confident-you know your stuff. Think about the answers. Narrow it down if you don't know and stay calm.

I understand exactly where you are.

For the teenager with singed eye brow, look out for airway with that, and according to kaplan, it is normal for a babies fontanel to bulge when they cry, all the best to you. Someone correct me if am wrong.

Congratulations RN:nurse: I also took it last month and failed. I'm taking it again next month and I hope to be joining you in the "pass" mode. What did you do differently this time compared to the first time? I'm trying Suzanne's plan using Saunder's Comprehensive Review.

Yes I agree with you. From what I learned in Kaplan, it is normal for babies to have bulging fontanel when they cry. It wouldn't be a priority.

I was much more focused this time. After graduation we did a week long review with a manual. I went through that again on my own and did a ton of questions.

This time I pulled out my Saunders and started reveiwing content and answering the questions. I then paid for the kaplan question bank and absolutely loved that. Also did the kaplan cd-question trainer. I did about 150-200 questions a day for a few weeks.

But I really had to change my attitude. I went in the first time like a deer in headlights. This time I went in telling myself not to be scared--I can do this.

I also went back to the person that did our review and did a retakers seminar. He really reinforced techniques for answering questions, priorities and so on. He did a wonderful job.

I stopped doing anything that had to do with NCLEX two days before and tried to relax. Easier said than done.

Congratulations, Chiefy!! :balloons: Sounds like you followed a really great plan there and you have the results to show for it!

Really good advice: stop studying for 24-48 hours before the exam. It worked for me at finals.

Thanks everyone! I think Im still numb. Numb but happy.

We all worked hard to get to this point--it is possible!:nurse:

thaks for your reply.

Congratulations! You should be so proud for sticking with it and ultimately succeeding in the end. Do something wonderful for yourself. :) You deserve it, RN!

Congrats!! One of my friends just failed and I can't wait to tell her of yet another 2nd timer success story!!:nurse:
