Is there anyone out there that has passed the State Boards (PN) while working a full-time job (40 hours a week)? U see I'm running into this issue where I don't know if I should quit my job for two months and study study study or do I work a full-time job and study at the same time. I've taken my NCLEX-PN twice and failed it both time and of course both times I was working a full-time job. The last time I took the NCLEX-PN I was near passing standard in every category and I just feel that if I took the time to study without working maybe I probably would have pass whether it was the first time or the second time. I don't know what to do and I am so confused. I just need some honest opinion out there of what I should do. I really don't have big bills except for one credit card and car insurance. Basically that's just the major things for me right now and also since I live with my parents I give them some money every paycheck. PLEASE HELP..

P.S.... I'm not sure if this post makes sense cuz I am all messed up....LOL

You need to take a NCLEX review it sounds like and maybe cut back on the hours you work. Where are you located? There are several reviews out there that you can take.

i work 40hrs/5days a week and passed my lpn. i started 20january and took march 22. i worked 730am-400pm, study 7pm-11pm sometime 'till midnight. actually, i was off for 3wks before my actual test. i thought, i dont have enought time but i did it....good luck !! you can do it too.

have faith, practice alot of question, make sure you read the rationale.

in nclex you will think about each and every answer choice to decide if it answers the reworded question. and thats what i learned fr. nclex. and you have to know all of the words and their meanings when you choice the right answers. and it makes a big difference also if you practice test-taking strategies.

i took my lpn last year august and failed and passed this march.

its hard for me

esp. b'coz i graduated fr. nursing school for a long years (19years ago) and im a foreign graduate. i did not take the test right a way when i got here in the us due to a family reason....but now, im ready for my rn this coming july. wish me luck and pray for me out there.

if you ask my honest opinion take 2months off and you can concentrate your study. thats what im doing now for my rn. and i dont know how far is your studying now but its help if you take off. good luck.....

Thank you so much I appreciate the response. I was thinking of taking two months off to study and then take the boards. I think I may just do that.

If you can't take off, then, at least cut down on the hours if possible. You may be stretched too thin. Also, a review course, as suggested by someone else, may not be a bad idea.

I live in Miami, FL and there are a lot of review courses offered here but I was thinking after I do my own study for the two months and then take a review course right b4 I take the NCLEX PN. Does that sound logical at all?
