    NCLEX too much?

    Thanks for the encouragement Joe! Making my third attempt and it can be depressing if you think about it and not take action. Like you said it will come at the right time and sometimes we can be our own enemies!

    Gearing Up to Take NCLEX for 5th Time

    Congratulations and best wishes as you move forward in your nursing career. Perserverance pays off if you work hard enough and you have proven that it can be don. Once again, :ancong!:

    Need Motivation and a Study Partner!

    @ blynn9173 - I know how hard it is for repeat test takers to get motivated but you have it in you! Like Kazza1201 said, you have to dig deep. I know as I am a repeater myself. I like you have many resources (most given to me by friends) but I have stuck to Saunder's 4th ED, LaCharity and Hurst. I often have many distractions because I have a 4 yr old at home plus I run a bridal business, so I stay busy. You can email me or PM me with your email address

    Don't give up on your aspirations of getting to the next level! You've come a long way so give yourself some time, pick yourself up and get back 'in the saddle' to climb the hill.

    FAILED my exam today. Asking for HELP re: study tips

    Exam Cram is a book by Rinehart, Sloan & Hurd - it is condensed information. Saunders & LaCharity both have newer editions.

    Failed NCLEX 5 times

    Don't give up on yourself! If your heart is set on nursing as a career, then keep trying one day you will get there. There are many on this forum who have been in your shoes and overcame the 'beast' that we have to pass to get to enjoy our passion. Consider all the advice that you've been given and chose what works best for you and go with it, just don't throw in the towel!

    Your top study materials for NCLEX?

    Hi Sparkle, If you know your content very well you should be ok with Q&A; but it would not hurt to review as if it was your first time - that is what I am doing as it is my third time. Good Luck.

    How to pass on the 3rd try...

    Never give up on yourself! The depression will pass but you have to take the initiative and tell yourself that you are going to do it - don't let fear conquer you. You have our support on this forum and many others have been in your shoes, so dust yourself off, jump back on the horse and study. There are many resources on here especially the random facts and the infection control link.... change the game plan and study as if it was your first time. Best of luck, you CAN do it!
