Failed NCLEX first time with 265...

Hi all, I graduated this past December 2017 with my ADN degree. I signed up to sit for my NCLEX on February 7th because I had a job all lined up but needed to be licensed prior to onboarding. Anyway, a little history of me, I have severe test anxiety. All through my Nursing school career I would take my exams in the quiet testing room to avoid being distracted. I did U World the first time around and thought that I was doing well, had a high likelihood of passing, and a pretty good rank and percentage. Test day I had all 265 but knew before doing the PVT I had failed. It took me 35 minutes to leave that parking lot. Needless to say, I lost the job opportunity and really felt pretty down. All of my other classmates have passed to date, and it has been a very humbling experience. I have had people tell me they thought it was an "easy" exam, but I didn't think so at all. I know that my anxiety got the best of me, as I don't even remember reading the rules that stated that you could turn of the the timers in the corner. I got my CPR report back and it stated that I was near passing level in all 8 categories. I came across this site and purchased the 5 week course because by then it will be time to sit again, and hopefully pass this time. Any advice for someone like me? 

  • Hello, my story is exactly like yours. How do you like this program compared to Uworld?

    I did not care for this program. It had a ton of content and that's great but my time was very limited. I am hoping to pass this next time around.

    Hi lorilavon

    I was thinking about getting this program can you share with me what you did not like? All my friends (a semester ahead of me) who passed only used UWorld. What are your recommendations?
