I used my own research and several online sources to help me. I found that while some schools may offer some sort of accelerated program, many students are still preparing for the exam without the help of their teachers or classmates.
One important reason that I don’t want to re-take the NCLEX is because it is so popular. That means that my current school offers a multiple choice, essay, and a long essay exam for the students to take.
This makes the College Level Exams, (CLE) difficult for students who are not used to taking them. Another thing to keep in mind is that it takes several months before students can take the NCLEX. We are talking about two or three months for one to be able to sit for the exam.
I know that having taken the test I am able to answer almost all of the questions when the computer prompts come up. However, some of the other questions are more difficult to answer. It takes a lot of studying to be able to do that.
So I am looking into taking the test again. But, I am aware that there are many students who were unable to take the test last year.
Many students also do not feel comfortable answering multiple choice test questions. This is not uncommon, as the longer essay, and essay tests tend to be harder to get through.
But one aspect that I will miss the most about the NCLEX is that I was able to take an independent study course that helped me focus on areas that I struggled with. I used the course when I was preparing for the exam. It gave me practice materials, test questions, and answer keys.
This independent study course also helped me research my material before each test and answer questions. It helped me to see the areas that I was struggling with and to address those areas of weaknesses.
At my last school, I was able to retake the NCLEX once, but that was not the case at my new school. I really need to take the NCLEX.
Having taken it several times before is crucial. It is just too easy to fall back on an old method of thinking and not learn.
But I would like to take the NCLEX again if I was able to take an independent study course. I think that would help me learn what I needed to do in order to get a passing score.
