Do You Have What It Takes to Be a Nurse?

Megan Malugani / Monster Contributing Writer

Although people considering careers in nursing come from all walks of life, many potential nurses share a surprisingly common set of questions and concerns, such as “Can I get into nursing school?” and “Am I crazy to become a nurse at my age?” Two nurses and a nursing professor address wannabe nurses’ frequently asked questions.

What if I can’t pass the NCLEX?

Don’t let a fear of failing the NCLEX-RN licensing exam deter you from becoming a nurse. “Don’t decide against nursing because you think you’re not the best test taker,” says Janet Krejci, PhD, RN, an associate professor of nursing at Marquette University College of Nursing. Before enrolling in a particular nursing school, ask about that program’s NCLEX pass rate. Marquette’s pass rate is usually 90 percent or higher, Krejci says.
