NCLEX/FL Remediation Help me! :,(I'm

I have failed NCLEX 3x now... and I feel like an incompetent idiot. I can't help but wonder if the school I went to had anything to do with my difficulty in passing. Regardless, I now am required to take a remediation course if I want to test again in FL. I've seen many threads about the remediation, but I can't seem to get a direct answer to my question... Can I test in Georgia, and if so, (and I hopefully pass) can I practice in Florida? I've heard the remediation program is very helpful, but also at a hefty price. What is entailed in the remediation? I've heard I have to do clinicals and all of that! Will I be able to work? Is it 5 days a week?? I just don't know what to do. I want to give up so bad... I'm so tired of getting beaten up by all of this.... :(:cry:

I don't think a license for passing in Georgia would work as a license in Florida, because they're two different states, but I'm not sure. Don't know if they're compact states.

I keep hearing you can just transfer the license.. but then I'll hear the opposite! :unsure:

I have a friend who took the test the 2nd in Texas, and she just did the transfer to Florida.

You could apply for endorsement/reciprocity, but you cant just instantly transfer it from state to state.

What does your CPR state? If you are near passing and go to another state just say? this will only give a further 3 attempts on the basis of a completion of the likes of kaplan and hurst or something similar ? Thats what i was told, i looked into this as i failed my first nclex but passed my second :) i have heard of people on here that failed 3 x in florida and went on to pass in another state and endorsed back to florida with no problems. However if you are failing outright , i would go with the remediation , cos although it costs a lot it is a lot less than a law suit.

I am a nurse in my country and i can say hand on heart its scary! This nclex has made me more confident , i did 3 courses, hurst , nscbn and half of kaplan and am glad i did , hope that helps and remember its not about knowledge so dont think yourself as incompetent , its judgement and safety!

Thanks for your help... I know I'm close! The last two times I took it I had all questions with 30-something SATA and other pics/priority questions. While I'm sure the remediation is helpful, I just cannot put myself back into full-time school again with clinicals and all. I'm working full time and I have bills to pay. :unsure: Not to mention the school I went to should have prepared me better for this. -_- However, I am aware that there must be something I'm not getting. I'm considering doing the ATI prep and see how that helps. It's expensive, but not as bad as remediation. I know in my heart that I can do it, and I know I'll be a kickass nurse! I've got a medical background that not many people have, which will help me! I know it! :D Thank you all for being so sweet and supportive. It helps give me courage!
