Took the NCLEX today! Yikes!

  1. Oh my gracious! I took the NCLEX today and the computer just shut off at 75 questions...this is good or bad, correct? I just have absolutely no idea how I did. Is anyone out there in the same boat? Great day in the morning. Anybody out there pass at 75 questions and have no idea if you passed?

    Yes and Yes lol. 75 is generally a good thing. I was <> this far from a stroke when it shut off!

    Same thing happened to me! No one walks out of boards thinking they passed, but as we are all testiment to, most do. Just having the minimum amount of questions isn't a bad sign. You may have passed really quickly or failed really quickly, which is doubtful. Keep your head up and your results will come soon enough. I know it's extremely stressful, but we've all made it through!!
    Good luck!!

    Mine shut off at 75, and I passed,for whatever that's worth! In fact, I don't think I've heard of anyone who shut off at 75 and didn't pass. But the waiting can drive you nuts!

    Good Luck!

    I took my boards on 7/12/02. The computer shut off at 75 for me too. I was also in shock. The first day i was in a daze all day long and the day after i was already prepared to hear the bad news. I'm fine now. Pretty confident i passed. I obviously have not gotten my results back..

    Good Luck and let us know how you did.

    I made a post called NCLEX anxiety around the 11th of july. Go back and check it out. I recieved alot of replys with lots of encouragment. They'll do you some good since your in the same boat as me. Christel

    Ditto! That is the worst! I thought I did really bad and it was the opposite. I know you're biting your nails!
    Good luck!!

    I take my boards on thursday but I know from when I took my LPN boards the the minimum number of questions is usually a good thing. It would be hard to be a graduate of any nursing school to fail soooooooo badly that the puter knows you have failed after only 75 questions. I'm sure you did well.
