    I have taken my boards the maximum amount of times and failed. I am not eligible to retest. Does anyone know what to do now?

    Call the BON in your state and see what they require. Some states require you to take a remediation class before taking the NCLEX again.

    Apply your college credits to a different field and return to school to pursue another career.

    Try contacting your state boards and ask them what they would recommend. Maybe you need to think about a refresher course to review. They do have NCLEX courses that help you to prepare for the boards exam. Think about doing something like this to assist you in being successful the next time. Good luck

    You're talking about the CRNA Boards? Couldn't you take another course in another school and then retake the boards? Are your courses applicable to a Nurse Practitioner program? Do you have trouble taking tests? Won't your professors mentor you by giving you verbal tests? Don't quit!

    I think contacting your State BON would be your most sensible move. They can tell you if you need a refresher course, or to repeat the entire school process. Or if there's another option you don't know.

    Good luck!

    Could we have some clarification Jax? Are you talking about the NCLEX (to get your RN) or the CRNA boards? Thanks for the additional info.

    If you are referring to the Certification Exam for the CRNA, you have a max of 4 attempts per year, and you have 2 years after graduation to become Certified, which adds up to 8 attempts. If you've reached these limits, then you must repeat a nurse anesthesia program to again become eligible.

    I am talking about my CRNA boards. Do I have to be certified to practice, or are there states out there that don't require certification?
