    Why do people fail the NCLEX?

    I'm a student that has failed 3x's I have done all of these and still received a failing grade. Although some material I achieved better on the nclex pn but still failed miserably. Is there recommended classes that can help figure out where I'm going wrong?

    Wow! That is awesome info. I just got my performance report back. I almost made it. My pharm was always the worse now its up and my basic care is down. I will continue to pursue this till I run out. Thank you for the advise I'm looking for a good review course that deals in students failing multiple times. Hopefully there is a class room study course out there.

    Thank you so much classicdame, This really helps. I just returned from gathering applications and a couple surprised interviews. I was prepared with resume and documents but was so let down when they said, "we would start you tomorrow but... (No License, No experience)" I have been a wonderful employee to every employer, never late, always prepared, never rude or a know it all, always ready to dive in to new experiences, and never afraid to ask for help or advise. My clinical instructors all said I was a worthy nurse and did a good job, I just hate having to be held back by this nclex exam. I will take your advise and search for these certificates and do my best to achieve this dream. Thank you again for the advise I will take it as gold.

    Thank you Indy, I am not sure how many times they allow a person to take the nclex pn. I know in Tennessee you are allowed 8x a yr. As for how many times I do not know. I thank you for the advise on the course and surly will look into it. In the mean time I am looking for work. My children and wife had high hopes that I would be in this profession by now but had bad luck 3x on the nclex. I do not know what is offered to unlicensed nurses so I'm looking on this blog for similar experiences and what others did in the mean time. I would greatly appreciate any advise in this area as well. Thank you again for reading my post.

    Life after NCLEX...

    Yes, I failed 3x within 7 months. Now I must find a job, I have a family and need advice from students who have gone through this. Does anyone know what a certified practical nurse may do in the medical field? I will return to the nclex after a break, but in the mean time can someone share their experience similar to this and what they did before returning to the exam?

    Medication Aide and practical nurse... Do you feel as though medication aides are better?
  7. Hello, I am currently unemployed with a A.S. degree in health science and Practical Nurse certificate. I have been unsuccessful passing the NCLEX and need serious advice from a nurse prospective. I have made the decision to start over and challenge the CNA test, look for a phlebotomy course, hopefully find a Medication Aide course, and anything else as that will help me achieve a good job until I return to the NCLEX. It has been to long since I graduated, my family has been under a terrible burden from my lacking of provisions due to unemployment. I live in Tennessee seeking to find help from you, the professionals, who know of graduates that have had the same experience and what they did. Thank you for reading my post and look forward to your responses.

    NCLEX PN positive outlook...

    I would give you my material at no cost but I have collected enough to set up a personal medical library that I want to keep for future references. I love reading the material gained through the years in school and hope one day to return. On a personal note, as my instructors and family has accounted that there was no way I could have failed this exam unless there was some spiritual reason. I know the test like the back of my hand and will tell you that Kaplan, NCSBN, Saunders, and Exam Cram are all you need to pass. Everything else branches from these review courses. Kaplan is great for explaining how to look at the questions and recognize what the questions ask. NCSBN is good for reviewing all subjects by bullet points. Saunders is good for subject break down and answering questions by subject. Exam Cram is the closest I've seen to the actual exam, if you score high on their practice exams you will come close to that same score on the NCLEX. I wish I could tell you what questions you will encounter but I do not want to get into trouble with the counsel state boards for sharing info. They hold true to watching you.

    NCLEX- PN

    Alot of cna delegation and meds. SATA is rough so stick with the nursing process and maslow. Pt safety was extreme so know this well. Yes as drag & drop is plentiful so review all your fundamental skills.

    NCLEX PN positive outlook...

    My reason for this topic was hope for a change in the system. If I was lead to make a difference you bet the bottom dollar I would tackle this exam first and return it to where it belongs, in the professors hand not the governments.

    NCLEX PN positive outlook...

    Hi, Just took my NCLEX PN for a third and final time. Honestly this will be a positive response to people who design the test and students across the nation whom endure this mind racking exam. For those of you who have yet taken this examination you will pass and begin a career of hope, love, and caring for the patients that depend on you. My story is like all others who dream for that day they accomplish a well earned life in the med field. Although I will not pursue a life in nursing I will continue the dream of helping others. Nurses across the land have endured years of hard work, sacrificed fun, and time away from loved ones to become an assistant to Gods healing miracles. They put patients before themselves to return dads, moms, daughters, sons, and friends back in the arms of love and missed families. Nurses are just that, Gods assistant who he entrust with power of healing and comfort. So who truly decides which person will be or won't be a nurse? The organizations, Government, or the professors? How many people will you have to go through before, during and after to qualify as a nurse? Greed is not the answer nor the route which seems right. Placing a tag on what is or isn't a nurse should be left to the authoritative figures who trained you not a bureaucrat who determines what a nurse should be or shouldn't be. This system is broken not because I failed but by taking a system that worked and fixing it not to work for the patients or nurses but to regulate a field which provides true love and sacrifices to witness the reward of Gods hand. I know in conclusion nursing is not in my future. I have been called for many different things in life an have the ability to know when and when not to continue or pursue a field in which I was not intended to do. I hold my self accountable for not passing the exam. It was not the man behind the desk who decided I was going to fail but my own neglect and struggles to become something I was not. In an effort to help others I say, know your nursing process, Maslow, concepts, and brief through everything you know about safety in the care of clients. I have had countless of days and sleepless nights since my graduation in order to pass this horrifying exam. To no avail I failed once, twice, and a third time with no clue to why I failed. Now I realize it was not Gods will. As a believer in Jesus my Lord an Savior, I fasted, prayed, sacrificed, and cried for days to let His will be done. It is finished and thank all the people on this blog for their encouragements and help in guiding me to material that was used with gratitude. Thank you and I pray for all those who are about to take this exam.
