I failed Nclex 3 times in Florida. Considering taking boards in another state

Posted

Need Adv!!!! I have failed nclex 3 times in Florida. I am now required to take a remediation course. I cant afford to pull out 1800.00 for this course. Plus all this extra time they want you to put into it. Need adv on taking boards elsewhere like Georgia or NC. Thanks

Are you going to move and work in another state? If you plan to get licensed in FL they may not let you endorse unless you remediate, even if you are licensed in another state.

Considering it's the same exam in every state, why would you waste your time taking it again without the preparation you obviously need?

In my opinion, you can't afford to keep putting the time and effort into taking the NCLEX unprepared. That gets quite expensive. Moving is not cheap either. Do the remediation and pass boards!

thanks for the adv. I am not moving, but I am trying to avoid having to pay 1800.00 to take 80 hrs of of class time plus 96 hours of clinicals. Ive heard you are able to retake elsewhere without having to remediate and put out all that extra money and time.

You are able to test in other states without having to take the remediation class and extra clinical hours -- I think that the point that enuf was making is that you need to make sure that at this point even if you pass the NCLEX in another state will Florida give you a license? They very well may not since the require the remediation after the 3 attempt and you didn't complete that... You really need to find out specifically from the Florida BON the answer to that question before you make application to another state BON for a license that you never intend to use.

Best of luck.

ETA: you do realize that you don't actually have to sit for the boards in a different state don't you? -- you apply for a license in any state that you wish and when they issue you that authorization to test then you can schedule the exam at your Fl testing site. Pass it and you get a license from the state that you applied to.

What have you done to ensure you'll pass the NCLEX this time? Did you change study habits, the way you work, the time allotted for studying? If not, then it's an exercise in futility.

Other states don't change the test, perhaps you need the remediation course. Think of how much you spent on your education, and you've met this roadblock. 1800.00 may be a lot, but it will be worth it in the end.

Thanks. Will look into it to make sure it can get done.

Hi. Yes, I am currently working with someone. In the past I was just using tools to study. Which obviously was not well enough to get me to pass. Thanks for the adv.

NCLEX is the same NCLEX in Georgia, Alabama, South Carolina or any other state you imagine testing for. What makes you think you can pass it on your 4th attempt without remediation?

I am currently working with someone to help me prepare properly this time. In the past I was just using different tools which obviously was not good enough.

What tools were you using? We might have some advice that can help :)

It sounds as though you still want to be licensed in FL, yet want to side-step what they are requiring of you to become so. While your plan may work to pass the NCLEX, FL might see that you failed to do what they TOLD you to do and refuse to license you anyway. Talk about a kick in the teeth, eh?

Hey, can you please give an update on what you did? Did you end up testing in another state or take the remediation class and clinical?

Thanks
