Hi, I am new to this website and figured maybe I would find some help here. I graduated from a 4 year University in Michigan with a bachelor's degree in nursing, graduated cum laude in 2005. I've taken the NCLEX exam three times and failed. I was working as a graduate nurse, then a nurse intern and now as a nursing assistant. Over the last few years I've kind of given up on becoming a nurse, yet I'm told all the time how good I would be as a nurse. I've stayed working in the hospital just to keep me around nursing and to try to keep my skills up. Am thinking about taking the test again, but I will definitely need a refresher course and some help in how to study for this test, considering whatever I was doing before didn't quite work for me. I did practice questions and took Kaplan, but it didn't help. Am having trouble finding refresher courses for people who are not RN's yet. Does anyone know of a good refresher course for a non-nurse? Any words of wisdom or ideas about what I should do would be very much appreciated. Thank you!
