Getting ready to take the NCLEX-RN for the third time.

Nursing Students NCLEX


Hi everyone!

I graduated from my nursing program in July 2017 with a 3.4 GPA. Due to a delay with my transcripts, I didn't get my ATT until November. I began studying again shortly after Thanksgiving. I was using the Kaplan q-bank and taking HESI exams once a week. My scores ranged from 704- 856. I took the NCLEX-RN in January 2018 for the first time. I failed. My CPR was all "near passing standard", except one that was "below passing standard".

I decided to take a week off to drown in self pity and another to clear my mind. Then I decided to purchase Uworld. I really enjoyed it! The rationales are exceptional. It was a great refresher and I learned a lot of new things as well. I took the self assessment and got a "high chance of passing" in the 59th percentile. I work full time at a local hospital. My commute to work is 2 hrs, and 2 hrs back home with traffic. My "study time" isn't very efficient but I try to make the most of it. I was only able to complete 1500 q from the Uworld Q-bank. On June 11, I failed the NCLEX-RN for the second time. My CPR was all "near passing standard" and the section that was "below passing standard" on my first try was the only "above passing standard".

At this point, I'm planning on renewing my Uworld subscription but I don't want take it again until I am consistently scoring 70-90%. I don't know if I'm doing too much or not enough. Any feedback, good or bad, is greatly appreciated!
