I have already taken the NCLEX twice and failed it in the past 6 months. I can only take it one more time this year and then the Michigan state board of nursing requires me to "complete an educational program that is acceptable to the board before you are approved to take the test up to 3 times more." Does this mean I have to retake nursing school? I don't understand.
Also, I've tried Hurst and I have tried learning.ext. I have also tried ATI tests, Kaplan mini question banks, NCSBN question banks, Saunders question banks etc. Someone please help me. I'm really scarred that I won't pass it again and I'll have to retake nursing school!
I studied my butt off when I failed the first time and somehow I did "worse" the second time around. The first time I got all 265 questions and I felt like, ok, if I study real hard then next time I should pass because I was that close, right? So I studies for hours every day, did tons of practice questions and everything and I only got 170 questions this time and failed. Technically that's doing worse than the first time.
The first exam I only got below passing in the psychosocial integrity area, so I studied that. I have not received the results of this exam yet in the mail.
Anyone have any ideas how I can better prepare myself for the next exam? I have a minimum of a 45 day wait period before I can take the exam again but I can't afford to sign up for it so I'm thinking it'll be more like 60 days or so before I can retake it.
