    Anyone failed nursing school and went back and was successful?

    Hi, please do not give up. Chance are there is still a chance I say re-apply and prepare to take those nclex style questions. Just remember the most important vital organs are brain, heart, kidney -in that order and the most important elements are oxygen, water, sodium and potassium-in that order. Hang in there

    Studying for NCLEX

    Hi I highly recommend doing practice questions and listening to Mark K audios. Just remember for priority questions that the most vital organs in order are Brain, heart, kidney and the most vital elements are oxygen, water, sodium, and potassium- in that order. Just remember pathophysiology mechanisms and principles to help answer questions as well. Wish you the best

    Failed Nclex after 2 years now what?

    2 BIGGEST TIPS!!! #1 I highly recommend relearning nursing fundamentals, cellular pathology and systemic inflammation pathways from a ICU / critical care perspective really really well to anticipate nursing managements . without science knowledge it will be a challenge to answer questions. #2 i would say please get a clear understanding on the nclex test plan and learn how questions are written. The more you understand how questions are written from a test writer stand point the better Start with saunders and your nursing textbooks with pathophysiolgy book next to it. Go old school.

    Lost in NCLEX resources

    You need resources that will teach you step by step how to answer questions which is why mark k program is so far apart from all the other resources.

    Can’t pass the NCLEX

    I can not agree more with labordude. Have you did an assessment on why most nursing students fail the nclex? Its usually .Not knowing pathophysiology/physiology .Not knowing how to breakdown nursing questions .Anxiety

    Test made entirely of SATA!?

    SATA questions can be a challenge. As for your professor giving the class SATA questions, that is usually the case to help prepare you for the NCLEX. As you progress toward graduation, the exam questions become more complex from knowledge and understanding level to application and analysis level to get you ready for the NCLEX. I recommend to start learning how to master SATA style questions. Google nclex blue print/ blooms taxonomy

    Recording Lectures?

    When recording try to organize it as much as possible and record by topic. Follow the headings in your textbook and record as accordingly. (Which means you will need to do preparation before class to at least have an idea of all the textbook headings and subheadings. The professor will go off topic many times and you do not want to record that stuff) That way when it comes to exam preparation you can review each topic with recordings that are short bursts and not 4 hrs long straight. Make an outline and write the time next to each section too. Nursing school is all about staying organized

    Took NCLEX twice and failed

    Hi. This is another comment i posted for someone else. "Hi i highly recommend reading about "active learning" and utilize it in your exam preparation everyday. You will retain 90%+ when you are teaching it to someone else. Also ive come to realize that we use all the great study material but may not have a full understanding of ADPIE. This is key. If you know each step in detail then you can answer nclex questions. In other words if you know how to write a care plan, you xan answer nclex questions. For example. A-assessment . in this section you need to have prior knowledge of pathophysiology and physiology to assess. Dont learn each symptom one by one, learn concepts, patterns, principles, mechanisms. D-diagnosis. This part tricky. You not only need to know the dx, but also rank the dx in order of priority by maslow needs. In addition learn any differiential dx (simliar) and compare and contrast. Then you move to P-planning this you need to rank priority first as well. What will you do first? Who will you see first? I-implement, E-evaluate. All of this including having an understanding of orem theory and maslow theory is fundamentals. review review review ADPIE and "thinking like a nurse" crutical thinking first

    Took NCLEX twice and failed

    Hi im sorry to hear about your test results. You seem to have used great qbanks but something is missing. Is it lacking A&p/patho content , not understanding maslow, not knowing how to break down nclex style questions? Usually its one or all

    Need Advice

    You are determined and your actions speaks volume. Im glad to see that you went back to school. Med surg class can be a struggle. Is this your first med surg exam? Do you have more exams coming up to make up for this score? If so there is still a chance. Have you scheduled a time to meet with your professor and discuss how to improve?. Does your school have tutor sessions or have you've tried study groups ? Please do not let this one exam get you down. You have it in you to keep going. I know you do.

    My STRUGGLE With The NCLEX!!!

    Hi. My advice is maybe finding a nclex tutor, study partner or a nursing teacher to help you on how to break down and answer nclex style questions? Having someone to hear how you think outloud each step to answer each question may help you the most.
