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:
If you havent 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 (www.ana.org) 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 dont have to be a student there to look at the books) and CD-ROMs you can use.
