Failing the NCLEX a second time - Page 2Register Today!
- Mar 29 by melaniedale28fWhat did you do to pass the nclex?i tried all the books. in my family my dad,my sister and two brothers already nclex rn passers. i just couldnt stop blaming myself.
- When I get a question wrong I usually read the rationale and If i dont fully understand the concept I go to my medsurg book and review.
- The last time I took my NCLEX, majority of my questions were priority questions. I recently bought this book " Prioritization, Delegation, and Assignment: Practice Exercises for Medical-Surgical Nursing, 1e ". I read good reviews and I started doing some of the practice questions. When in doubt, choose the patient that is most likely to die.
- Mar 31 by mbschlossThere are no easy solutions when it comes to studying for an NCLEX. Strategy guides can help you learn to look for key phrasing, but you need a strong foundation of critical thinking to eliminate answers. I've never heard of anyone who has walked out of testing thinking it was easy. You've taken it twice.... have you focused your studying on any of the areas where you got a lot of questions focused? They tend to continue a line of questioning, maternity, mental health, etc until you answer correctly. If you've bought a study guide like Kaplan, or Saunders use the companion CD & read all your rationales.... they don't just teach you why the answer is correct, but why the others are the wrong choice! Remember in nursing A, B, C are all correct, but B is the most correct!
Invest your time wisely & you are sure to pass!
- Mar 31 by Nurse_Do an assessment test first. When you get your result from the BON, focus on the areas you are weak on.
Focus! This is not the time to lose hope.
If you answered 3,000 questions before, you have to triple that this time (if not more). Have ONE resource material and TWO or THREE source of questions (one should be book and the other online), the worse you can do is overwhelm yourself with too many resources.
- Mar 31 by LadyFree28I agree with Nurse_ find out what areas you did not do well in, focus on those particular questions and the rationales. Sometimes people get caught up in the questions and answers without reviewing rationales. Also make sure that your are looking at priority, delegation type questions, like PDA from LaCharity. Know what the question is asking you and the rationale. If math is your weakness, review nursing math as well as lab values. Take your time in reviewing for the NCLEX...make sure there is enough time to study your weaknesses, and there is enough time to review questions and rationales before retaking the exam. Good Luck!
