Nclex-265

  1. This is my first time posting here, please be patient!! Took NCLEX yesterday......265. I was beyond devastated! At about 225 I felt the urge to throw up, cry, and curl up in the fetal position all at once. When I took the PN last year, I walked out after the minimum. I have a horrid gut feeling that won't go away. I did the buddy system to the test site (we live about 3.5 hours away). One walked out at 75 (her BON actually CALLED her about 5 hours later to tell her she passed!!!) :hatparty: My other friend finished at 145. Is it normal to have this icky gut feeling of failure?
    Thanks!!

    I feel the same way that you do. I took my exam yesterday. When my test shut off at 75 I wanted to scream, cry, and then yell because I felt that I just did not do well. Stay positive (yeah, easier said than done). Good luck to you

    Hi:
    I just passed on 6/23 with 265 and believe me when I walked out I felt I had failed but I passed. I had the minimum with LPN also. Just remember you were still passing in order to keep getting questions and I think if alot of people realized that before they took the test we wouldn't feel so bad while it was happening. I had 265 the first time, 186 the second time and felt better and still failed and passed the third time with 265. I'll be praying for you. :kiss
