Hi! I’m sorry to hear things didn’t go well your first go but don’t worry! The NCLEX is HARD!! Many people fail their first time. My advice would be to make a study plan and study your weaker areas FIRST!! I actually found it easier to study after I failed the first time because I knew what I needed to work on. If you’re not sure what your weaker areas are before you get your results in the mail, look on UWorld for that category breakdown and even reflect on your NCLEX. Did you get a lot of the same topic? If so it might be a weak area for you. For example, I remember getting a lot of Pharm and GI questions my first attempt. I also did not score well on these areas on UWorld either so I took these as two of my weaker areas and studied these FIRST!
Also, don’t be afraid to go back into your nursing school notes! If it’s an area you know you struggle on, study and understand the content first before using UWorld, this helped me A LOT! I think my biggest mistake the first attempt was only using UWorld to study. UWorld is wonderful don’t get me wrong, but I also think it shouldn’t be your main source of studying. It should be used to practice applying the content you already know and to practice using testing strategies. I would not worry about your UWorld scores however, remediating the questions whether their right or wrong is the most important part.
Sorry for the long answer but I hope this helps! Feel free to reach back out with any other questions!! And goodluck studying!
