I came across this site today b/c I did a google search for people who had never passed the NCLEX-RN but wanted to go back and attempt again. I graduated with BSN in 1998 but never passed my boards after 3 attempts. Now I am ready to try again. I am also considering and LPN program. I am not sure if I should just study for my NCLEX-RN or do the LPN program. I'm nervous and have always thought about doing this again. Please share your success stories or those of your friends who have overcome this type situation.

I'm wondering if there are time limits on your eligibility to sit for the NCLEX? Similar to credits expiring within X number of years if not applied to a degree.
It is a bit different, because she met the requirements for the degree, and the degree meets the requirements to sit for NCLEX.When the schools get their quarterly results, it delineates what year the candidates that took it in that timeframe graduated. Believe it or not, I've seen candidates take it longer ago than that. Usually they are unsuccessful though
But you raise a good point; there probably should be a time limit, due to the changes in practice.
