Any NCLEX retakers who have been out of practice w/ re-testing out there. We used to have a thread here for each month that would study together. I am a retaker and have developed a serious fear of retaking since I have been out of school for some time. In the field for 20 years but haven't tested in 2 years. I am at a clean slate for reviewing and I have NCLEX 3000 online, Kaplan question trainer and the saunders book. Post for feedback, I am open to it all and hopefully we can start a study thread!

I plan to retest in November 2014

natnat28 thanks for responding. All these months I review the posts and always reply and support other test takers who have failed once twice, to several times. I was even around when they had the random fact throwing. I think that a support group is helpful and now that I just completed my masters in public health, no more excuses it's time that I retake my exam. There is more fear than the studying piece that is outweighing my strength to retake it. I will start a thread of random fact throwing and see where it can help each other. Any more feedback by all means..

Awesome and thanks again for the reply. I will also record my daily practice tests to show any progress and I know that reviewing rationales are really helpful. I heard there are a lot of SATA on NCLEX now and actually seeing them more often is a good sign because the tester is increasing level of ability.

I am in California. There is no limit in taking the exam, I believe it is every 45 days to retest. The exam from Pearsonvue expires 1 years from the date you pay for the exam.
