    The limit is determined by the individual state board of nursing.

    Some states you have to take a remedial course before being able to test for the NCLEX a 4th time. Here is a link to thread that discussed this: RN Remedial Course

    depends on your state, in texas there is a time limit and you have to take and pass boards within 4 years of graduating, if not you have to retake the program

    it depends on the state you are going take. here in Florida, you can only take 3x... then after that you ned to take refresher course

    Im pretty sure that it varies by state...in New Mexico, you can take it 3 times before you have to have a remediation. Check with your individual state BON.
