    Hi, ProfRN4, I know many nurses who earn their nursing degree in America and fail nclex-LPN/RN, just like our friend that hasn't pass several times. I do not think she has language barrier.
    Sakshi didn't have any problem with that post based on her reply to it. And what if it was a language barrier? Why would thinking that be a cause for shame or embarrassment? If I moved to France I'd certainly have a language barrier. Sakshi got lots of helpful advice, which is what she asked for. I don't think there is any reason to inject divisive language into her thread.

    Best wishes to you, Sakshi!

    Its 300 for online review. 350 for live review. But you can only benefit with live review if hurst is going to have it near your area unless if you are willing to spend to go where they have the live review. i failed in my first try too. Im gonna do whatever it takes to pass the 2nd. We can do this!!!
    Everyone is different. I feel you can benefit from the online review just as much the live review

    Hi, ProfRN4, I know many nurses who earn their nursing degree in America and fail nclex-LPN/RN, just like our friend that hasn't pass several times. I do not think she has language barrier. What about the people who earn degree in the U.S, does it means they have language barrier? You sound so foolish for speaking to our friend like this.
    My post really seemed to strike a nerve with you (yet the OP had no problem with what I had to say). She came looking for advice, and I was looking to get a better idea of what her back story was. And now I know.
    BTW, just because you got your degree in the US, that doesn't mean the person DOESN'T have a language barrier.

    And yes, many American born, English speaking graduates fail NCLEX. I never said they don't, so don't put words in my virtual mouth.

    My "foolish" question was not at all judgmental, just a legitimate question. To say someone has a language barrier is not an insult, just a fact. I have a language barrier with every other language but English, and I take no offense to that. Where I work, more than 50% of the student body was born outside the US, so I deal with students with language barriers every day. Many of them who graduate pass NCLEX. But many of them who don't graduate seem to struggle with comprehending the unbelievably complicated language that is English.

    I believe that ProfRN4 was trying to understand if there was a reason why the OP was unable to pass her exam after so many tries. How is that foolish?
    I agree that a foreign education does not have to mean that there is a language barrier, but you would have to consider it as a possibility, especially when one person has failed so many times. You would be looking at any possible causes for this failure.
    I am not saying there is a language barrier problem with the OP. I do not know her. However, that very thought crossed my mind, as well, as a possibility.

    Any and all options have to be considered (no matter how unpleasant) in order to identify the problem... in order to come up with a plan of action.
    Thanks Hygiene! At least someone doesn't see me as being mean. But alas, I am a mother of a teen and a nursing instructor, so it's nothing new :/

    Can you fail that many times and still able to have a license in your state? In WA..you can only fail 3 times before you are no longer able to hold a license..might be worth it to look into that..

    I would definitely use a study guide that provides a rationale for each of the answers. Find out what area you struggle the most in, and study the heck out of that.

    Nursing exams and the NCLEX are very difficult, but you CAN overcome this! Take a breath and a break; let your mind rest, develop a study plan that works best for you, and then dive right in as soon as you're ready.

    Best of luck to you!!

    begosh, correct me if i'm wrong but i think she/he means this book: Comprehensive Review for NCLEX-RN. here's a link to amazon: Amazon.com: Buying Choices: Comprehensive Review for NCLEX-RN [With Access Code][ COMPREHENSIVE REVIEW FOR NCLEX-RN [WITH ACCESS CODE] ] By Hogan, Mary Ann ( Author )Oct-15-2011 Paperback

    It should have a red and white cover. I thought I would respond because I use this book as well and found it very helpful throughout nursing school. I recommend it to everyone.
