Hey Every one,
I’m FINALLY back and will be making a personal post some time later today. First I have to get all my “ask me a questions” answered. I have many of them. This question is from Ajoa and here what was asked:
“Hi its my first time on your site. Congratulations. Are you about to take the rn state board? well I am an rn certified in uk. I have done the accreditation and i only have to sit for the nclex rn exams.
i live in Charlotte. I have tried once in the pst 3 year but failed.I am just stuck. I uk, we specialize and i specialized in psychiatry. Am stuck because yours is more of general nursing and i just don’t know what to do. Please help. Thanks for reading.”
Can’t Pass NCLEX Test
Ajoa thanks for your question. That is awesome you are already licensed in the United Kingdom and your speciality is psych. I have heard that many of the international students have a tough time trying to pass the NCLEX-RN to become a Nurse….so you are not alone.
I think the problem with the test is that it is only given in the English language and this makes it hard for people whose primary language isn’t English. You are correct the NCLEX is more generalized which makes it where you have to know almost everything about ever field such as pschy, OB, med. surgical, Peds, and Geriatrics.
Here are my two suggestions: First, get the best NCLEX-RN study book out there and develop a study plan for yourself. Practice 100 questions daily and read chapters out of the NCLEX book. Kaplan and Saunders are awesome books. Second sign up for a NCLEX-RN review class through Kaplan. Go to Kaplan website and see if they hold any classes in your area, Charlotte. These NCLEX review classes are suppose to be the best. Plus it wouldn’t hurt to give it a try.
Don’t give up because you are not alone. The NCLEX is a hard test! Just keep studying and give it another try. Good luck to you Ajoa! Thanks again for your question and if you have any more questions don’t hesitate to hit me up!
Until next time,
