Hi. I just became a registered nurse 2 days ago. My sister and I both got our BSN's at the same college and she graduated in May 2004, myself in May 2005. We both had trouble with the NCLEX. I failed my first time and it took me a year to re-take the exam. I studied very hard with my sister, who took the NCLEX exam for the 4th time with me just this last Monday. I passed and she didn't. I feel awful. She doesn't think anyone has failed the test 4 times and doesn't think she'll ever pass the test. She has put in countless hours, and let me tell you, she knows the material. We've taken Kaplan's prep course and she's done over 3,000 practice questions. We are smart people and know how to succeed at school. We both got 4.0's our last year in nursing school
, so we don't understand why she can't pass this exam. What can I do to help convince her that she can pass? Does anyone know someone who failed the NCLEX 4 times? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
