sister problem with taking state board

  1. Hi everyone can someone help me my sister is an RN grad yet she is having a terrible time with nclex she has taken it more than 3 times and very dissappointed.
    My question is anyone can help me is ther a way to use the Ada rules if it is known that my sister has severe test anxiety and there is dyslexia.

    I read that in Tennessee you can request special accomodations for disabilities. I would imagine that other states have the same type of management. She may have to go through the BON, I am not sure. My first try would be to contact the school she graduated from and ask them what she needs to do.

    Have you considered going to Sylvan Learning Center and having an assessment done and then having them teach her some test taking skills? A friend of mine did this with her kids . .

    Also, one of my friends from school took the test 7 times before passing . .he just wasn't a good test taker but a GREAT nurse.

    Best wishes.
