Hi guys, I'm a BSN international student, born and raised in the states but went abroad for school and I'm kind of at a loss. For the first time i took the NCLEX, i stopped at 75 and failed, for the second time i stopped at 86 and failed but that meant i did better than the first time. I just recently took the NCLEX for the 3rd time and stopped at 75 and when i went to do the PVT, it went through, meaning that I failed and inherently did worse. I've been doing Uworld and did an assessment exam for each time i went to do the NCLEX. the first 2 assessment exams i scored borderline and for the 3rd assessment exam i scored very good which is the best. I did many practice exams in preparation for my 3rd attempt scoring in the 60s and 70s in Uworld and a Kaplan Practice Test Review Book.

I was confident on my 3rd attempt but I did worse despite my scores during my review. I don't know what direction to go in right now and I'm kind of lost. Any tips and words of encouragement? Much needed right now.

Evaluate your content weakness areas and improve them. Evaluate your critical thinking skills. What types of questions are you having the most difficulty with - SATA? Priority? When you do Uworld, go over every rational right after you answer the question. See if you are thinking about/ approaching the question in the correct manner. There is some weakness (es) that you need to make yourself aware of - so you can pass the NCLEX.

Are you able to evaluate what is being asked? Are you able to easily identify at least one or two incorrect answers and cross them off? Look for important words in the questions and answers.

Uworld evaluates your weakness areas. Start there and evaluate your previous tests. I found Hurst review to be very helpful on content. Uworld very helpful for critical thinking and SATA.

Good luck!
