Third time's the charm...i hope

  1. 0 Hey everyone first let me start by saying I graduated nursing school in May 2011, I took the NCLEX (the first time) in June got like 224 questions and failed, I had an RN job lined up for when I passed the first time so when I failed they still hired me as a NCP in another unit so that when I did pass the transition would be swift and I wouldn't have to go through a new hire process, being pumped about that I chose to take it again in Oct 2011 and got all 265...and failed. I gave up on the studying for a while because I was very discouraged, but I quickly got over it and started studying casually again. I've used Kaplan, which I find has questions that most resemble the actual NCLEX questions, I've also used Saunders, and Hurst, and finally Prentice hall comprehensive review. I've decided to start a goal list as to how many questions I do daily ( I hear that's key...questions questions questions ) and I've put in a week off work to do heavy duty studying then take my test the following Monday (Aug 6ish) I've also printed the all nurses review pages. I guess my point to all this is one to let other nurses know to NEVER give up because I know I wont and also to ask for some input, tips, or anything anyone wants to share particularly from third time passers thanks for your time and attention

    Best of luck to you! I love the never-give-up attitude. Perhaps taking some computerized questions so you're use to the actually testing format may help. Go get'em!
