The only options for the health care field where you can work without a nursing license are positions that don't require licenses: patient care assistant, nursing assistant, unit clerk, home health aid, and the like. Until you pass NCLEX, you will not be eligible for any nursing positions.

RoyalBlue, your profile says you have two years of nursing experience....but are not a nurse? How does that happen?

At any rate, as Rose Queen wisely stated, you will need to work in an unlicensed, assistive capacity until you possess a license to do otherwise.

You won't be able to find a job in the nursing field until you are licensed.

There are a couple unlicensed positions you could look at, like the previous posters mentioned.

RoyalBlue, don't get down! Take a break.... that is what I did after my third attempt! I took a break for 4 months studying off and on. Look for jobs such as PCA or tech positions. They will give you experience in the nursing field. I just took my exam for the 4th time yesterday. Fingers crossed! One of my friends preceptors took her test 6 times before she passed it. I know no one wants to hear that we may have to take it 4 5 6 times but if you truly want to be a nurse and that is your passion, don't give up! The test does not define you or what type of nurse you will be, just remember that.
