    FAIL NCLEX RN with 75 question ... need help !!

    I am in Houston, TX. Didn't find an RN job yet, because first I need to go through Refresher Course since I didn't work as a nurse for the last 4 years. Good luck on your Test! Keep in touch!

    FAIL NCLEX RN with 75 question ... need help !!

    Privet Oleg10! What city in Ukraine are you from? I'm from Odessa. You pretty much gave an advise yourself already: you need a good rest the day before Test. It looks like you already did a good job on studying, so on a day before Test don't study at all, get a good night sleep, for sure eat something in the morning, do not worry - you need a clear, cool mind, take your time during the Test, do not rush and do not underestimate that little break - you need it! When do you plan to take NCLEX again? I am sure you will pass it this time!

    FAIL NCLEX RN with 75 question ... need help !!

    Hi there! I know you are frustrated, but a negative result is also a result! Do not give up - you can nail that Test! Now you have an advantage - you've been in that room, you know what to expect! Now, as for orientation... Just reading books is not enough. Practice, practice, practice! You need to answer as many practice questions as possible and make sure that the percentage of correct answers is no less then 85! It will set your mind in an NCLEX mode. I only used 2 books: Saunders "Comprehensive Review for NCLEX-RN Test" and Saunders "Q&A Review for NCLEX-RN test". Both are the latest edition I could find. I did all the questions from Q&A book and CD plus I did some Kaplan questions (just questions, I didn't read any Kaplan's books) and couple of Kaplan's practice tests. Also I've found a link to online pharm book (someone posted here on this forum) and for the last week or two I was going through that book, answering questions after each chapter. That's all. Overall I went through 9,000 or 10,000 questions. I passed my NCLEX-RN on November 19th with 75 questions with the first try! I need to tell you that I've got my Nursing education in Ukraine in 1992, never went to Nursing school here in US, so if I could do this - you can do this too! Just believe, practice, make sure you do good while you are answering questions, leave all your worries outside of the test room and take all the time you need while taking the Test. Best of luck to you!!! In no time you will be an RN!

    Thank you, rodmarkq! Well, to make long story short: I got my nursing education in Ukraine, evaluated my credentials here in US, met all the requirements with Texas BON and they allowed me to sit for NCLEX-RN, but since I didn't practice as RN within the last 4 years I have to take a refresher course (120 hours of theory and 120 hours of clinicals) in order to get a permanent License. That's my BON's rules.

    Thank you, guys! It definetely was a wonderful Thanksgiving. Imagine a huge weight has been lifted from my shoulders. It's not over for me yet: I am an internationaly educated nurse and I have to go through refreshement course before BON will give me a permanent license, but at least I can move forward and apply for that course and then look for an RN position:o) Congrats to everyone who passed and a best of luck to all who is still studying and about to take NCLEX!!!
