    I am so sorry that you didn't pass Nclex. Do Not Give- up. God is in control of your life. You are breathing, walking and the most important one is that, you are well and healthy. you have the wisdom, knowledge and understanding. Do you have a friend who can help you with priority, or start studying again. You have all your books, your lap-top, and prayer. I have two friends who passed their nclex years ago that help me at least two times per week for few hours, and we discuss what I am doing wrong like who do you see first, like

    The op failed, I never failed the NCLEX, I was suggesting, a review class that helped me pass the first time

    I just graduated in May. Our nursing program made it mandatory that we take the Kaplan course. It's a 4 day course (Saturday and Sunday or 2 weeks 8 hours long). They give amazing tips because they hired people who have written the NCLEX. It came with a book and access to an online question trainer and question bank. I'll admit... I skipped out on a few classes. However, if you attend all 4 days and don't pass, Kaplan refunds you the amount that you paid for the class. I took the NCLEX twice. I failed the first time... I had mono the week of the test and didn't really study because I was sleeping. The second time, I read the entire book, memorized labs I was rusty on, and did all the question trainers and passed with only having to take 80 questions (I had to take the full 265 question test the first time). I highly recommend Kaplan! Hope this helps

    Take Kaplan seriously next time. I think its a touch overrated but it seems to help a lot of people, having failed that many times I am curious to know if you have done this? Why not if you havent?
