    I don't think he has any videos. I guess it is the students who attend the review class that video it themselves and watch it later on their own to retain what he thought in the class. I am not sure but you can always get a better answer here.

    I advice you to wait until you get your official result so you can see how you performed in all the categories. That will tell you whether it was content or strategy issue. You don't need to panic or get too anxious because it can only demoralize you. I learnt is not good to memorise when studying for the nclex may be that is why you said HURST did not help you at all while so many have testified how helpful HURST was to them in passing the nclex. You need to give yourself a few months rather than rushing it in weeks. All the best to you.

    You made the decision to post, LOL no one forced you to! If you don't have the time then why did you start in on the thread you don't have time for in the first place??

    I'm not ranting, I think I'm being pretty rational. Can't say that's true for everyone though.

    One thing we can agree on is that your time is probably best spent trying to pass the NCLEX. Good luck.
    I can understand that you are one of those mockers who come to allnurses to mock and laugh at people. All I want you to know is that you might have RN title, MSN, BSCN, PHD etc. but it is not the end of the world. Some people have them before you and more will have after you. No one knows tomorrow, you are not the GOD of those are struggling to pass the nclex and you never will be. It is not your business how many times they take the nclex exam. If they think it nursing is not for them, they will stop but it is not in your power to decide for them. No need for you bragging about passing the nclex, some have had all the titles in nursing but couldn't use them which could be because of unforeseen circumstances like illness or other issues in life. I hate having this type of argument but it is very unfortunate I responded to your comment and I sorely regret it. This is my last response to your comments. Have a great day.

    thanks can i delete this
    No need to delete. It was moved to the NCLEX forum for quick response. It helps so others can see your post easily and respond. Sorry to hear you got the bad pop up, hopefully you pass the 2nd time. Please could you elaborate more on why you said that the exam appears to be something you never come across or read before. Did you try practicing enough questions? Or did you just read content and go to sit for the nclex. It will be difficult to only study contents to pass the nclex I guess.

    Says you. I see threads here all the time that make me wonder what the point of posting them was. Doesn't make me the arbiter of what should or should not be discussed though, does it? Your not seeing the value in a discussion means that perhaps you should abstain from the discussion. Those who find entertainment, education, perhaps mere curiosity piqued, let them discuss away.

    Message boards are just that, people talking. Maybe you can picture this thread as a conversation in a cocktail party. You stand by the circle, listen for a minute or two, decide the topic is not an interest, and wander away. Maybe that would be your best move? Or, reconsider and join in. Either way, the person who wrote this thread has every right to be heard, just as you have a right to disagree.

    Viva le difference!
    I don't have time for this post ok. You can continue ranting forever. Good day.

    I think that requesting a thread be closed when it has only just begun, because you didn't like comments on another thread of the same topic is really throwing in the towel much too soon, don't you think? Might even be akin to telling someone who has failed the NCLEX once to just give it up already LOL.

    Anyone can fail a test once, maybe even twice on the same test. Three failures on the same test though? I think that a remediation is in order before allowing a fourth attempt, like already is the case with some state Boards of Nursing. Beyond that, I have to say no. Like several others have already said, and eloquently said on this thread, at some point one has to realize that a significant amount of time has passed since they graduated school, and a significant amount of knowledge, whatever it was that they gleaned from school, has already been lost. It just no longer becomes realistic for someone to consider nursing a viable career option after multiple failures over an extended period of time. That's not pessimistic it really is just realistic. Others are free to disagree, but the OP did ask for opinions. Mine is that if you have not passed this exam in three attempts, you must do some type of formal remediation program. Can't pass on the fourth attempt? You should consider yourself done. My two cents.
    So of what importance is this thread if not for some people to humiliate others. I have not written the nclex talk about failing rather what am saying is that there is no need for this thread. It would have been good if someone who has failed the nclex multiple times posted this thread may be seeking for advice rather than someone who already passed the nclex. It doesn't make any sense! Period!

    Woooo! congratulations. You wrote in Canada, right? What , materials did you use in studying and which one do you think looks like the nclex questions you got in the exam.

    Yes please, try buy it, it is very helpful for CPNRE. But try finish the Saunders and do as many questions as you can with the online code. Tr read the cpnre prep guide 3 times before your exam. Goodluck.

    Difficulty is subjective,but i thought the exam was relatively easy. All the topics were in saunders. even if the exact question wasnt. most of my questions had 6 choices, but only pick answers that you believe are correct. for example if you are only sure of 2 choices only pick 2. Trust what you remember and what you learned. If the saunders is used correctly everyone who use it should pass. Ome thing Ive learned from doing a lot of questions is that I didnt know as much as I thought I knew. Its the simple questions that will get you and sometimes require the most thought. So when youre studying always ask why and what. I forgot to mention I also used LaCharity. My teachers taught me the do not delegate what you EAT rule, I used the do not delegate what you EATS rule for UAPs. I added the S for sterile procedures. If youre planning to use saunders and need help unleashing its full potential, let me know
    Please i sent you a PM. Coud you please check it out, thanks.

    There is no need for this discussion if you have already passed the nclex, because so many will comment in away that you and others will not like. I have read on this forum a similar post and it was shut down because of ugly response. Some will like to belittle others and make them feel less. So my my advice is close this thread.

    How difficult are the SATA questions? Are the like basic or topics you have never come across. I hope you pass. Goodluck to you.

    Congratulations to you. Please what do you mean when you say " It felt very home health and community teaching based which felt completely out of my element.'' What type of questions did you see before you concluded the above facts?

    LOl! That's what you got! You are lucky to get the good pop and hopefully you get your RN status in days. Thanks and goodluck.

    Ive heard different things about the various study methods. First, Saunders is a great tool to help pass tests in nursing school and to practice how to approach SATA and other alternative format questions, but useless on the NCLEX, because the information is too easy. Others say to use either Pearson or ATI to prepare for the NCLEX.
    It is wrong for you to say this because no review material is useless. I have heard some people say it was what helped them to pass. Many have used UWORLD and still fail, and some have passed using either only UWORLD or SAUNDERS or any other review. Use whatever you think is best for you. Sometimes overconfidence is an issue.
