Took only 75 questions- think I failed the NCLEX

  1. Took it today... we yesterday I guess. Took 75 questions and did not feel good about many at all. I was worried about spending too much time on a given item. When it shut off, my heart just sunk. I have to start orientation at 8 am today for a job that I don't think I can take. I am so angry at myself for not taking more time....

    Looking at the postings has helped a bit- but i am still sure that I failed.... at least MD participates in the rapid result....

    Remember that every nurse will get 50% correct and 50% wrong. It just depends how hard the questions were....................

    I know that this won't change things for you, but just take care of yourself , and you will officially know your score quickly.

    Good luck.......................

    I took the NCLEX today and dont feel good about it at all. I guess we just have to hang in there until results.

    Hang in there. Very few of us come out of NCLEX with a 100% feeling that we passed. It's a tough one.

    I bet you passed! The computer would have kept giving you questions if you were borderline between passing/failing. No one leaves the test feeling like they've passed, for it increases in difficulty level with each question, progressing to level "expert". You most likely passed by proving that you know at least "basic" nursing, since the computer stopped at 75.

    My 7 year old know basic nursing, after all I practiced all noninvasive clinical practicums on her during nursing school, while mimicking others around her... I think she could have sat at that NCLEX and passed with no problems, for as her mom, I am sure I bombed :uhoh21: . That test was UNREAL!!
