offered internship, what happens if I don't pass nclex on first try?Register Today!
- by blessedmomw3 Jul 14, '11Hi All. I live in Dayton OH and have been offered an internship at one of our local hospitals. Does anyone live around here or know what will happen if I don't pass nclex on the first try? I am so nervous that I am going to fail nclex (which I think most new grads worry about), and then also to miss out on the internship opportunity, well that would be double awful! Thanks for any advice you have!

Everyone worries about passing the NCLEX. Remember that over 85% of people pass the first time. So think positive and take the NCLEX soon! Statistics show that the sooner you take it after graduation, the more likely you are to pass.
