    Hi and
    Sorry to hear that.
    You could try preparing from Saunders and/or Mosby's NCLEX books next time, I've found those to very helpful on my exam.
    Good luck to you!

    Hey Phillynurse,

    So sorry you didn't pass! I STRONGLY suggest that you contact Suzanne, who is a moderator on this board and has several posts on the NCLEX discussion forum on this site.

    Suzanne has an easy to follow plan for passing the NCLEX. I passed on my first try using her plan. My friend had to take the NCLEX 3 times, and only passed on the third try because she FINALLY listened to me and contacted Suzanne!

    If you click "Students" at the top of this web page, then click on the "NCLEX Discussion Forum" thread, you will see a sticky from Suzanne where she outlines the first part of her plan. Click her name to send her a private message so you can request more details--let her know that you will be taking the NCLEX for a third time because I think her plan is a little bit different in that case. All you will need is the Saunders book. Remember that because her plan won't work if you're doing different study plans simultaneously.

    I've seen so many posts from people, including those who had to take the NCLEX more than once, who passed with Suzanne's plan, and the best part, she doesn't charge a dime for it, just does it out of the goodness of her heart.

    So please get in touch with her right away. I don't think you'll regret it! Good luck, you can do it!
