    @lloi: Hi Kabayan! I only used textbooks from my nursing school and La Charity PDA. Maybe that's why I failed. I didn't study enough.. But on my next try this July or August, I'm planning to use Saunders, Kaplan, Hurst & Lacharity PDA (you should get the Lacharity book, it's really good).. We can do this! I'm from the DMV area

    @melaniedale28f
    I'll be taking the exam on July too. Good luck! We need to focus more and study really hard this time!

    Hello fellow Filipinos!!! I graduated 2yrs ago also in the Philippines and I passed the boards also that year so i am an RN there. I moved here to the states on 2011 also, tried applying for the CA BON, unfortunately wasn't approved because that year CA BON changed their policies. So anyway, i applied for nevada state, got my att last jan and took the test this april.

    I wasn't able to pass because same as you, i also work fullltime but i took Kaplan. And for me it wasn't effective. I suggest that if you feel like you need refreshing, take a course that's comprehensive and focuses on content and questions and rationale. Kaplan wasn't able to help me with that

    Im going to try to take the exam in June. Has anyone tried to register again in pearson?

    We can do this. We should just focus on this 100% and it will all be worth it

    Use your smartphone to study. It is easier, convenient, and more efficient. I use NCLEX Mastery, Lippincott's app, and Davis mobile

    I am a big advocator of mobile apps. If you want to practice NCLEX questions, your phone is WAY better than a text book. Its smaller and YOU ALWAYS HAVE IT WITH YOU! I find this very nice because I can do a few questions here and there (this really adds up!)

    I don't take the NCLEX for awhile, but Ive been experimenting with different resources and I have to agree that there are some great apps out there (and some terrible ones). I can't say Im a fan of Lippincotts or David Mobile, but NCLEX Mastery is good. I also like to use as many free ones as possible, they have limited questions but can be useful

    Oh wow, we're in the same situation. I think what we need is a review course that can refresh our minds. Being out of school for years makes it really hard, I actually regret not taking it as soon as I passed the board exam back in the PI. But don't worry, we can do it! I mean, we still have it, we finished nursing school & passed our country's board exam. So since Kaplan is all about strategies and the decision tree, I realized I need to REMEMBER the contents first. So from what i've been reading here, when it comes to content, Hurst and Saunders are great. So I'll start with that and when I am AGAIN familiar with the diseases and management, that's when I'll start to use books that are more into test taking strategies. Goodluck with you exam on June!

    I strongly agree with both of you. Smartphones are really a big help, I started downloading those apps you mentioned and they seem helpful. I also downloaded NCLEX QB, it has a lot of questions including SATAS but the problem is there's a glitch, it doesn't post your scores. Oh well! thanks guys! It's a big help since I use my phone like almost the whole time.
