So I have failed the NCLEX twice so far. I just finished the online Hurst review and I'm taking the Q Review tests right now. I have been scoring between 65 and 72% and it is really starting to discourage me. I also started reading the LaCharity Book for prioritization, delegation, etc and have been getting about 70-75% on those questions. I just don't know what to do anymore. I am tired of spending money on all these books and programs to help me study and it's making me feel so overwhelmed, I have no idea where to start. I will study one area, then test on it, realize I'm weak in another area, and before you know it I have forgotten what I studied before! It has been 5 months since I last took the NCLEX, and 10 months since I graduated from nursing school
. I don't know what to do anymore. I am getting pressured by my family and friends asking me when I am going to take the NCLEX again, but in reality I am afraid to take it because I'm afraid I'm going to spend all that money on an exam that I'm going to fail. I was hoping someone could give me advice on how they study for boards? Like how long do you study for, how do you break it up into sections, etc. Anyone use Hurst review who thinks it worked well for them? How do you study pharm and lab values? I seem to have a hard time in those areas. Any and all advice is appreciated. Thank you in advance.
