new to this site and need advice

  1. Hi to everyone. I graduated almost 4 years ago and I took the rn board and failed twice that same year I graduated. I never took the board since then and now I would like to try again. It took me this long to want to try again because my confidence was so low then and also circumstances in my life happen so then I had to postpone it. Since it's been more than 3 years and didn't pass the board yet I have to take a remedial course. I would like to know for anyone who also had to take a remedial course what course you took and was it helpful in passing your board. Please also any advice from anyone who has passed the board recently what study materials did you use and any other study tips that you can give me. Thanks. It has to be an approve course for the state of Illinois.

    One thing, people respond to circumstances different. First thing, 'Start telling yourselve you will pass the board the next time you take it'. I did not fail the nursing board, but I did fail a class due to circumstance (.5 point from passing [75] & the Instructor did not even give me the .5 to graduate, that's okay ) right before graduation. I have encouraged and been friends / peoples' cheerleader who have failed nursing board, bars, medical boards.
    First things are first, "YOU WILL PASS BOARDS THE NEXT TIME".
    Go to a book store, get you a nursing board review book and use it. Take the test questions. Study the material that you need strengthen. Make / get you a schedule, one to four hours a day. Questions, Review questions and Study the material you need strengthen (1 hour for questions, 15 minutes break, 1-1.5 hour to review questions, break, 2 hours to study). As you use this method, you will use less time to take test, review questions and study. You may start off with 6 days out of a week, as time go by, the 6 days will turn into 4, then 2. The 4 hours will turn into 2 hours to take the test, review the test and study. YOU CAN DO IT ! Treasure
