I plan to take the NCLEX, almost 8 years after graduating from my BSN program. I took the NCLEX once in 2000 and failed.

My question is: after all these years, will your study plan work for me?

And, I'm unable to test in TX because it's been more than 4 yrs. since graduation. In order to do so, I would have to reeducate. Will it be the same way for any state in compact with TX?

Thanks, any advice will be greatly appreciated!

You will need to get approval from a state to sit for the NCLEX exam. My plan has worked for those that never tested in more than 20 years, as well as those that have tested more than 5 or 6 times.

You do not have a Texas license, so there is no compact license issue involved. Unless there is already a license in hand, then the compact states pact does not come into play.

Thanks for redirecting the post here. I thought that was mostly geared for international nurses.

I am in the process of finding a state board that I can apply to and will allow me to test. I'm currently overseas with my military husband. I never had a license in hand so thanks for also clearing up the compact issue.

And now to your plan. I have the Saunders book 3rd ed. so I will begin there, correct? I have read your first tip but feel like I should be doing more since it has been 8 years.
