maemae19 maemae19 (New) New

I failed my Nclex exam again and it's already my 5th time,My registration will expired this July, I'm just so frustrated right now, I guess I'm just not fit being a nurse. I'm just so tired and stressed out from all the things that's happening to me. I don't know what to do anymore. :( I studied four years of Nursing and Here I am I can't even apply it, I can't avoid to get jealous to my classmates and my friends because they are already successful in there chosen career as a nurse, and here I am struggling to pass the nclex board exam. Is the exam here in Illinois really that hard. Is there a way I can still apply exam to other states? Is there someone could help me pls. :(

Use UWORLD and study. I don't know how you study but the majority of people who post on the NCLEX forum use UWORLD

What have you been studying or preparing with? What are your weakest topics according to nclex result?

Do you know what areas you are weak in? You've taken this test five times. Five. There's a few concepts you are not grasping. You were in nursing school for 4 years? Or just college in general? I ask because I wonder if English is your first language by reading your post. That may make it more difficult to pass.

You are not a failure. I am guessing that your confidence has been shaken to its core. Once your husband is released from the ICU, start studying with Uworld again. Treat the studying process like a JOB. Wake up at the same time each day. Leave your house at the same time each day and find a quiet place to study. I followed this plan for five weeks, daily, passed NCLEX on the first try in 75 questions. I also wrote out notes on each Uworld question I got wrong. I studied those notes every other day. There is no short cut to passing NCLEX. You have to do the work. You can do it! And Uworld is a great resource. Keep reading posts on this site. You'll gain study tips from others and inspiration to keep going. Good luck!

Great advice this is exactly what i did, i actually quit my job to make studying my job. Woke up every day and studied all day, wrote down notes on questions i got wrong on UWorld.

I did a bunch of practice tests from Kaplan. If you get a question wrong ask yourself why you got it wrong. If you don't know, study the pathophysiology, symptoms, treatment, diagnostics, interventions, patient education. What is your learning preference? Watch youtube videos, kaplan academy, practice tests, reread your books. Good luck. I hope you pass the next time.
