Getting ready to take the NCLEX for the 6th time

robesher robesher (New) New

So, after failing the NCLEX 5 times, I am now getting ready to take it for the 6th time. I have been studying the content and been really focusing in test taking. I refuse to give up and will not let this test get the best of me. I have way too much time invested in this.

I have been getting a lot of help from the Nurses that I work with, and my D.O.N. has been so supportive.

I am feeling good about this because when I got my results from the last test i was near passing on everything and had taken all 265 questions. I plan to take my time with the NCLEX and make sure I read the questions and answers.

I'll keep you all posted on how it goes. My date is August 25th so I have time to get ready. If anybody has any test taking tips for me, it would be greatly appreciated.

Good luck in your endeavors. I have a suggestion. I reviewed with NCLEX Made Incredibly Easy. This book breaks down everything very well. Prayers going up! Know in you heart that you will pass and if nursing is your passion, you will get this!

I think one thing that really helped me pass in 75q was to turn off the clock in the upper right hand corner. I took my sweet time with the first 75. I thought through each and every option. I told myself if the computer didn't shut off at 75 I would pay more attention to my time...you can do it! You know what to expect and you sound like you want It more than anything.

Hi Erin1984;

This is something that I have wanted for a long time. I started back in 1986, a year after graduating high school and things happened that put it on the back burning. then after being a bartender for 26 years I knew it was time to follow my heart. I am now a 47 year old wife that needs this and wants this. I have worked hard for it, and will get it no matter how many times I have to do the NCLEX.

Thanks for the support

Robesher... That's the spirit and I hope and pray you find success this time. Good luck!


You will pass! Now go write your name on a piece of paper and put RN after it. Put it where you will see it every day. Believe it will be so because you are going to make it happen.
