Is it possible for you to take a refresher course because you graduated a long time ago? Also bear in mind you would be an "old new grad" so get ready for employers to question you. If/when you do pass, please be open to taking what you can get to at least get some experience. Also I recommend you get up to date with your BLS, try getting a few certifications: wound care, suction etc. If you don't have your BSN, please start taking some classes.

Try Mark Klimek audio and Uworld. I couldn’t afford a refresher course. I graduated 3 years ago, failed the first time. I got discouraged and kept putting it off. I started studying again in December and tested in yesterday! I passed! All I did was the audio and Uworld. About 100 questions a day, when I had time, I did  200 or more.

Mark Klimek is the way to go.  I also use ReMar for more content and Uworld for questions, since I have been out of school since 2011.  Testing soon and I feel more confident than ever before.
