Omg!  I have read most of these testimonials and I feel like crying...AGAIN!  I can't understand why this has to be so hard!  I passed nursing school and knew I had one more hump which is the NCLEX.  I am so discouraged and frustrated, I honestly feel like I'm going to snap or go through some sort of depression.  I only took the test once, 265 questions and needless to say, i didn't pass.  Once I got to 150 questions, my brain literally tapped out.  I knew at that point that I wasn't going to pass.  Words got jumbled up, and I had no idea what I was reading, let alone comprehending.

I feel so deeply bad and sorry for the ones who have taken it multiple times.  I admire that you kept on going and didn't give up.  And I'm sure after so many times of taking it, the joy is depleted, and it's just a sigh of relief.   I don't want to be in that boat but it looks like that's where I'm headed.  And God knows I can't afford $200 a pop every time to take it over.  I had a job lined up in the hospital to work in the ED, and now I have to wait until the next cohort comes around.  I cry every single time I get a low score (doing UWORLD).  I just can't understand what I'm missing!!  I know for a fact that those SATA questions get me every time! And now, on UWORLD, and the NCLEX, ALL of them could be the right answer

When I got the result back of NOT PASSING, I sobbed and felt like giving up, but I keep telling myself, I'M NOT A QUITTER!  I read where I need to improve but it's hard to try and find the sub subjects on UWORLD.  I didn't get anything that was "below average". 1 section, Safety and Security I scored above average, but the rest were "near average".  Apparently, that wasn't good enough.  I thought this test was based on the "minimal knowledge" and it seems you have to know every freaking disease, med, adverse effect vs. side effect, expected outcome of disease for everything out there.  I don't see how its just for the newly graduated nurse.  More like you have to already have been in the field to know certain meds and what adverse and side effects are..I can go on and on..I need help and I'm hoping someone would read this and reach out.  This is the worse feeling ever.  It's like the light is there, but there's a 1% chance in reaching it.  I put my trust and faith in God, knowing it's all in his time, I just want to stop feeling like the biggest loser ever.  I know that "this too shall pass", but that's all I want is to pass.. I feel I've disappointed my family, friends and most importantly, myself.  I know that it's more so of embarrassment.  I feel like everything that I went through in Nursing school was for nothing, time wasted..there's people in my class that passed who aren't the sharpest tool in the shed (not like I am either but..), how is it that they passed, and i'm still sitting here with my thumb up my butt?!  I have been studying and preparing to take test for the pass 2 1/2 years, my brain is fried!  The stress is unbelievable

I absolutely have to pass this second time around, I feel like i'm putting more money into TRYING TO PASS THE TEST, than actually benefiting from learning the material.  I honestly believe I need a one on one tutor. BTW, I looked at the thing, and the price on that is astronomical!! Unless your taking the test for me, I will never pay that amount in "hopes" that I pass..I can't..

Anywho, thank you to this site where I have gotten the opportunity to vent.  I apologize for the words in caps, not yelling at the reader, just yelling in my head at myself..

I am pleading for someone to help me..

  • I'm sorry that you are feeling this way.
    take in a deep breathe and exhale slowly, relax. take a week or two off studying and relax. laugh , smile , play, watch movies, go out.
    you can face nclex a second time, and you can pass .
    have you registered for ncsbn tutorials? if so consider doing the post test , it should give you a pretty good idea of you deficiencies. or use evolve pretest. with that , you get a reading time table for your deficient areas.
    You can do it, yes you can.
    We can!!

    Hello ovigwe1. Thank you for your reply. It was nice to hear from someone. I'm so fixated on this, I only took a 2 or 3 days off from studying. And it was a struggle to do that because I feel like I'm being a "slacker". My test was on April 4th and it seems like it was last month sometime. It's only been 2 weeks.
    I have a bday coming up this month, so I think I'm going to just really try and enjoy it since its on the weekend. I haven't really checked out ncsbn tutorials, but I will check it out since you recommend it and also the evolve pretest.

    How are you doing and how is studying going for you? It seems as if you're awaiting to take your exam also..

    And Yes! I'm claiming it. We can do it!

    Thanx for reaching out
