Hello, so I graduated nursing school at UVA a couple years ago and just cant seem to pass the NCLEX. I am hoping that I could find a NCLEX study buddy somewhere in or near Charlottesville, VA.  

Thank you!

Sorry to hear about your difficulty in passing NCLEX.  Somebody just posted about passing after the fifth try.  Maybe their post will help?

Typically when a person takes more than two times to pass, it's probably because you do not have mastery of the content of what you were taught in school.  You stated you graduated a couple of years ago, this is will make it more difficult since it's been years since you've been exposed to the content.  It's very easy to forget what you're taught if you don't practice or speak about it for a long time.

I would advise to look throughout All Nurses in the NCLEX section as many other students have posted what worked for them to pass.  If you have already tried all of those, I know money is tight for everybody nowadays, but I would recommend at this juncture to look into getting a tutor to guide your focus.  NCLEX isn't your typical test and is difficult.  What makes it even more difficult is if you don't have a good, basic understanding of all the concepts which were taught in nursing school.

Good luck to you.

Thank you so much for saying this. I see so many students thinking just answering questions is enough. Some think.. Answer more, learn more....but what if the underlining problem is the content wasn't learned in the first place! But when you suggest a return to a textbook, they want to buy a new question app. 

The other thing that surprises me is that a graduate that takes 2, 3, or 4 times without passing but finally passes on the 5th try.....wants to share what they did to pass. If it worked for them to pass after 1-4  failed tries and lucky 5 happened (they passed!) why would anyone follow their path of study plans and apps that obviously did not work for them?

If you fail, stop paying for more apps. Return to your textbook to learn what you missed or forgot the first time around. And frankly, do a great inventory of your own knowledge, don't really understand the actions by some heart medicines work..why are chosen more than others?...Study effort 1)
