    You may have passed. Many times i have read that people have passed with that many questions. Try and stay busy until you get results. What worked for me was to go to a movie. Sending you both positive thoughts.

    Hi, I Found The Test To Be Relatively Hard, But I've Heard That Hard Means Good.. I Got Alot Of Priority Questions Like "which Patient Would You See First"? Which Patient Would You Consider For D/c"? , "which Of The Following Phone Calls Should The Nurse Return First"?....i Also Got Alot On Sle, Burns, Spinal/head Injury, And Alot On Therapeutic Communication.

    Let Me Know If You Think Of Anything Else To Ask...i Cant Fall Asleep I Am Extremely Anxious!!!!!!!!

    Weeeellllll, since you asked (lol)

    Did you take a nclex prep course after graduation? My school requires us to take a week long seminar right after graduation. If we dont, our DON wont send in our paperwork to be eligible to test. Also, how soon after graduating did you test?

    thanks for endulging me

    BMT,

    I am so there. I feel like crap and I know that I have been grouchy to people. I can not wait until I hear my results. This anxiety is killing me!

    Be positive.. I took mine on Feb 2nd, and I had to answer all 265 questions and I passed, and two other classmates of mine had to do the same thing... But I do understand the stress of not knowing.. Its the worst..

    I feel your pain. I took my test yesterday. I only had 75 questions, but that didn't make me feel any better. When it shut off, I thought "wait, give me more questions! I can still prove myself."

    It was the hardest test I have ever taken. Normally, I'm able to narrow the answers down to 2; some of these I couldn't even do that. I had a ton of therapeutic communication and prioritizing questions. I hate those. I've been checking the pearson website every hour to see if my results are in. It's driving me nuts. I wish I had picked up time at work, just to get my mind off of it.

    Happystudent - we were required at my school to take a review course as well. It was an excellent course, and they recommended waiting 4-6 weeks after taking it to take the NCLEX. They gave us a lot of hints about how to remember the difference between certain diseases, or how to remember signs and symptoms of a disease. Unfortunately, I wasn't asked any of that on my test!

    How long do they give you to take the test? How much did it cost you? Did you go to a class, or review books? How long do you have to wait for your results?
