Check out Simple Nursing on Youtube. He has a video on there about a woman who had failed the NCLEX five times!!! She worked with him and was able to pass the sixth and final time that she took it.

I am not a nurse or even a nursing student yet (I put in my application tomorrow) so I can only imagine the disappointment and other feelings you are experiencing. You spent all of that time, money, and energy into finishing your nursing program. Do not give up.

No way...dont give up! Take it 10 times if you have too! Remember why you went to school and don't give up on that dream! Maybe try taking some time off if you can the week you are going to take nclex so you can do questions and be more focused. Sounds like you are running on burnout and that can take a great toll on you. You got this...this is just an exam and not real aorld. Ive been told think of Safety safety safety when taking the nclex. Use only one or two resources (i hear kaplan is pretty outdated). When taking the exam think if you could only do one thing and then clock out for the day what would it be that will help you choose the safest answer. Try Uworld it seems to be the most updated.

I feel @HowardRN2017 frustration, but I am not too discouraged to sit for the exam again.

I too have taken the exam more than 4 times unsuccessfully myself. I am not giving up on my dream to become a nurse either. I am a believer too...so I'm going to trust and believe that God will see me through. With that being said, you mentioned needing Stategy if you don't know content. At this point, I am not sure what I know or don't know, so I would consider studying some strategies as a bonus and to increase my chance of passing. What's a good source to use to brush up on strategy? Thanks & God Bless Gloria!

Great advice...I failed 5 times and just bought UWORLD 30 days...I test Feb. 20th for the 6th time. I have had 75-265 questions. I need structure so Uworld seems a bit harder than nscbn would be due to they have a schedule/ syllabus to follow. I like uworld much better though being I have taken the exam 5 times. Very detailed and great graphics.

My dear listen I had fail the nclex 3 Times, December 2017 was my fourth Time and God did deliver me. One thing I never even think about not even one day was giving up... you how many times flailed isn't mean you a failure when you really are it's when you decide to give up. So don't be failure there is hope. It doesn't matter how many times you have to take it what's you need to put in your is that you will make it. That's what's i always say to myself and here I'm a nurse today.you can do it too.

OP, you should not give up until you have exhausted your options. Based on your posts, it does not seem you have exhausted your options. Use the strategies and materials (i.e. such as, UWorld) mentioned so far on this thread. Plus, research other strategies for studying for the NCLEX.

IMO, day shift = daytime drama, but, if you need to, consider working days as you prepare for the test again.
