So.... I went threw what most people went threw. Straight out of high school to college. Went for nursing did all I needed to do. Couldn't get into a program, waited 2+yrs. Got frustrated, went to get LVN hoping to transfer to an LVN to RN. Finished LVN took the test, failed!! Family then became an issue had to work, couldn't focus on school. My question is, can I retest after 5or so yrs? Is there a deadline? I want to go back to school. Do I try to restest for LVN and go into a private program like WC and do LVN to RN or is all my time lost? Can anyone help me with this dilemma?

Hello, moved thread to our NCLEX Discussion Forum for best chance member advice. Depending upon your state license requirements, this section has many stories of members passing NCLEX several years post graduation. (Link to state board of nursing found at bottom each page). Check out the advice members left here to retest.

Depends on the State you are seeking a license from. Texas, for example, requires an applicant to test within four years of graduation; others have no limits at all.

What State are you in?
