Took the Nclex yesterday getting that dreadul message..


I used a cancelled debit card and it says payment declined. So I guess I did not pass but I will wait for the offical results to see how close I was to passing. Hopefully the pvt is wrong but am taking one day off and hitting those books again. No time to waste. I have to pass this and I will!!! Will let you know if the trick worked or not....By the way they told me at the center my results may go on HOLD because I was having alot of issues with that palm thing. Oh well life just has to go on.

I'm sorry that you did not get the good pop up. However, I have to say I love your attitude about it. It may have knocked you down for a bit but you are already back up ready to fight again. With that mindset, you can definitely do this. It's only a matter of time. Best wishes!

To my understanding... When doing the "trick" you should use a valid credit card. Good luck! Keep us updated.

It says payment declined because you used a cancelled debit card...?!

Instead of doing the "trick"...

Can you pay for quick results?


Keep looking at your BON's website.

Best wishes.

HOW are you studying?

The issue may not necessarily the source of the review, but how one approaches the NCLEX itself: understanding the four concepts of becoming a competent, entry-level nurse:

1. Safe, effective care;

2.Health promotion;

3.Physiological Integrity;

4.Psychosocial integrity

Will determine WHAT the question is asking you; the question may be Respiratory related-but is it a Health Promotion or a Safety, or a Physiological or a Psychosocial one? Would you know the difference and choose the BEST answer?

Once one understands the concepts of NCLEX, they can do so successfully.

Don't necessarily look at content; you know most of the material because you passed nursing school; begin to do questions related to each concept; review all questions and rationales; ANY rationale you struggle with, THEN review content. Lather, rinse, repeat.

When practicing the questions, prepare the questions like a mock NCLEX exam, review the minimum and then work up to the maximum for endurance purposes.

After looking at your report, focus on the weakness and review questions and rationales; make mock NCLEX tests and start with the minimum and gradually until the maximum; you have to have an endurance in answering application questions.

After each "exam", make sure you are reviewing the rationales; any rationales you are not clear on THEN look up for content.
