Last time we talked about the first things you should do if you fail the NCLEX. Today we’re going to talk about what to do next.
Now you need to figure out the content that you might have had trouble with on the test.
Step 1 – write down all of the question categories you had on the test. Examples would be like cardiac, fluid / electrolytes, lab values etc. Highlight those you think you might have had trouble on. If you’re like me when I took the test, some of the questions you’ve already looked to find out if you got the right answer or not.
Step 2 – take some assessment tests. The best I’ve found is online from Saunders – but you can take any that you find, as long as they’re setup similar to the NCLEX test. I would recommend you take two or three. Don’t take three in one day, but one every day. Note your assessment results, you’ll probably begin to see a few trends.
I’m working on a spread sheet to help you visualize the results better and I should have that for you next week.
We have a program that is guaranteed to help you pass your NCLEX test if you failed it. Details can be found here.
