    The issue becomes that once someone takes NCLEX and the results are announced, that person either has a nursing license or loses the GN permit. Therefore, anyone who fails NCLEX is ineligible to work in a role as a nurse. That is why she must pass on the first try or no longer have a job. She cannot work as a nurse with a void GN permit unless she has proved minimum competency to be granted a license. In days past, it's possible the facility would have allowed a GN who failed NCLEX to work as an aide, but those days are long past- in fact, many facilities are no longer hiring GNs and require a license to be hired.

    Your child's friend is exhibiting signs of sexual abuse.

    You need to report it to get the other child the help s/he needs.

    While mostly good advice, 50 pounds in 90 days is EXTREMELY unrealistic. I also notice there are ZERO references for sources that would confirm the 'fat burning machine' claim.

    It's not shocking at all. When I received a job offer as a new grad, I was told I could start orientation after I passed NCLEX ...they didn't even mess around with the "graduate nurse" job stuff.

    Quote from Sagegrr
    My sister in law, just got her BSN, and she is working as a student nurse at a veterans hospital in California. She was shocked when they said if she does not pass her Nclex on the first test that they would not hire her as a real full time employee. I have never heard of that before. I think it is wrong if you pass, you pass it shouldn't matter how many times you have taken it. Also, when you apply for jobs, are they able to see how many times you have taken the test?
    Ahhh, but it does matter how many times you have to take the test. At least it matters to some. Honestly, would you want your loved one to receive care from an RN who took 7 tries to pass NCLEX? What if all that nurse accomplished during the 7 tries was how to successfully dissect the NCLEX question format, rather than actually increasing her knowledge base?

    This is a hot topic here, due to the folks who come here moaning about how nursing is their dreeeeeeeam and they just know ​that they are meant to be a nurse, but after 5 tries they just can't get it. Some states do have limits, but I personally think all states should limit.
