I took the NCLEX for the first time in June of this year. 265q's and 5 hrs. Fail. I see that most of the folks on here know how that feels. I didn't know what to do and talked with some fellow classmates and this program was recommended. I checked out some of the 'questions of the week' on the Facebook page and they look very similar to what I had seen on the actual NCLEX. I did the 3 week course and saw more of the questions. My opinion is that if you want to see what NCLEX questions look like, you should do this program. I have seen questions from other programs and for me, these are the most like what actual NCLEX questions look like. I ran out of time so I didn't get to see all the practice questions. I recommend that it you want to get all the content and practice questions, do the 5 week course but follow the 3 week schedule and you should have plenty of time to look at the questions after you have seen the content. I took my second test 9-14-13. This time I saw a lot more of those alternate format questions. You know, the ones you hate to see but know you need to be getting. I still did 265q's, and took the full 6hrs. Such a relief when I got those quick results that said PASS. The hardest thing for me was to keep my head in the game after passing the 100q mark but used some of the 'rejuvenation station exercises' to get my focus back. Hey, don't laugh. It apparently worked. I would recommend this program to anyone that is studying for this beast of a test.
Congratulations!! on passing the exam, and good luck in your nursing career. I am going to take the exam in October 5, and I will take your advise. Thank you for the tips. Wish me luck on my 2nd attempt.
Congratulations! You are officially RN and good luck with new career as an RN. I failed 2 times and this is my 3nd time to take NCLEX-RN exam on the 3rd of dec and I've been out from School since 2005. Can you give me some ideas or tips how to study? Did you use other review materials or just focus on NCSBN course?. Thank you and God bless!
That's awesome. I failed the NCLEX twice. I graduated in 2003 and took it the first time beginning of 2004, then again middle of 2004. I just applied to take it again, waiting on sit date. I'm sure the NCLEX is way different then back then. I got discouraged after the 2nd fail and it's taking me this long to go for it again.
