How should I prepare to take the NCLEX-RN?


Dear Donna,

I am a foreign nursing graduate working as an LPN who has failed the NCLEX-RN a couple of times. I am disappointed, but I do not want to give up on my nursing career. I plan to retake the test in June. Do you have any advice that could help me pass this time?


Dear Donna replies:

Dear Joy,

If you haven’t already done so, I would recommend that you either enroll in an NCLEX review course that will prepare you to take the test and/or find a tutor to help you with NCLEX preparation, including test-taking skills. Because your exam date is rapidly approaching, a tutor might be the best way to go.

Find an NCLEX tutor through a local college that has a nursing program. You also can contact your state chapter of the American Nurses Association ( or do an Internet search to help you find an NCLEX-RN tutor in your area.

There also are NCLEX review books in the public library or local college library (you don’t have to be a student there to look at the books) and CD-ROMs you can use.

Best wishes,
