NCSBN NCLEX-RN Review (Failed first time)

Posted

Hi everyone!I took the NCLEX-RN exam last December. Unfortunately, I failed. It was my first try too. Kaplan review did not work on me. Tried to read the Saunders book at first but then I felt overwhelmed and not for me. I admit that it was my fault. I felt that I did not give my best at all. I also had doubts in myself. And so on...But then life goes on. And the world does not stop there. So am I. God wants me to be prepared as in really prepared wherein not just to get over NCLEX but to pass it and use all my learnings & experiences into the nursing reality. Life lessons learned. Now, I'm more determined to pass the exam and share my blessings as RN out there. Giving up is not in my dictionary. To make this not long, I would just like to get any feedbacks from anyone of you regarding the NCSBN 15 weeks course worth $160 or any week course it offers. What do you comment about it? The content review? The questions? Is it worth it? Any suggestions or anything to share about it would be highly appreciated. Planning to purchase it since NCSBN manages the NCLEX plus it's complete and updated. Thanks.

I used NCSBN Learning Extension for three weeks and I found the questions very similar to NCLEX.

I am planning to purchase the 8 weeks review. The reviews are great that's why I want to try it. All the best to you. We will pass NCLEX soon. STAY STRONG!

If you do their entire nclex review along with all their questions then you should be fine. A good content base is necessary to pass with the new nclex standards.

Thanks. How did you do on your exam? Was the content review helpful?

I passed in 75. The questions were very similar to those on NCLEX in style and difficulty. I used a bit of the review for things I needed review in, but mainly used the questions at the end.

Is their content review good? I really need to work on my content. What was your experience on it? Thanks.

One thing I wanna purchase it, is because of the questions since they are the ones who make the them. What did you use most on your content review? Did you find their content review helpful? Did they cover everything? Just curious. Thanks.

They cover everything and have helpful links to terminology, pharmacy, etc. the review is comprehensive. As I mentioned, I used it for a couple of things as a refresher, and then did all the tests and practice questions. I didn't know about it until a couple of weeks before my exam and hadn't planned on purchasing a review, but it was well worth it for me....good luck!

Hi Atom, I read the reviews on the NCSBN/Learning-ext website and also on allnurses, there are couple of threads about the program.

I have taken the NCLEX my first time and failed. I believed I failed because of anxiety and lack of strategies. I am using the NCSBN learning extension 5 week review this time and I can say that it is the similiar to the NCLEX. 75% is needed to "complete" the questions in each section. I am scoring in the 70s and 80s on the practice exams on the first try. I would highly recommend this review. Yes it is long, but the practice questions at the end prepares you. I am also using the Saunders Q&A cd for content, the 35 page study guide and kaplan strategies book. I am using the virtual ATI as well because my school is paying for it, it is only helpful in content and to be disciplined to study (in my opinion)
