My name is Christina Silva and I am a doctoral candidate, nurse educator, and staff nurse. I am performing a qualitative dissertation research study on graduate nurses (GNs) who have failed the NCLEX-RN® multiple times. I need participants for my study and I would like your assistance either as a participant or as a referral source. I would like to thank you in advance for your assistance.
Why am I concerned with GNs who have failed the NCLEX-RN® multiple times?
As a doctoral candidate and nurse educator, I have witnessed family members fail to perform well on standardized exams. I have witnessed nursing students struggle with examinations in school and struggle to pass the NCLEX-RN®. I want to understand this struggle. The best source to help me understand the issue of multiple NCLEX-RN® failure is YOU, the GNs who have encountered problems passing the NCLEX-RN®. Your experience or story will help me to understand this problem.
With today's aging population, nurses are a necessary resource (Bargagliotti, 2009). By the year 2030, the American population aged 65 and older will reach 20% of the total United States population or greater than 70 million people (Lun, 2011; Sade, 2012; Vincent & Velkoff, 2010). With the aging population growing, the professionals needed to care for them must increase also. Many professions including nursing are looking for ways to increase the workforce that will care for the elderly population (Lun, 2011). GNs who have failed the NCLEX-RN® multiple times are a vital part of meeting this need.
Purpose of the Study
The purpose of this study is to understand the experiences of GNs who have failed the NCLEX-RN® multiple times. Phenomenology describes carefully all that is hidden in any act of consciousness. This method seeks to understand every day, ordinary occurrences. This research approach does not seek to provide absolute answers but to provide a means of understanding the participants' experiences of failing the NCLEX-RN® multiple times.
Have you or someone you know completed your nursing program? Have you or someone you know taken the NCLEX-RN more than once and not passed?
If you have taken the NCLEX-RN more than once and not passed and are interested in participating in this research study, click on the link below.

For anyone who has previously read this post and responded, thank you. Initially, any GN who was an LPN was excluded from participation. At this time, the LPN exclusion is gone. If you are an LPN and are interested in participating, please re-click on the link above....
For anyone who has taken the NCLEX-RN and not been successful more than once, I am studying this phenomenon. Above is my research link. If you are willing to share your story, click on the link in my original post.
Already did! Good luck on your research. I admire people who pursue post grad and doctorate studies.
hello there, please if you can help me with your research link cause i didn't find it
This is a research project from nearly 3 years ago, if you follow the link you will see it is no longer active. Are you an LPN who is trying to pass the RN exam? If so you can look around at the long list of threads on this topic on this forum. good luck!
