Quote from melaniestudent
Just took my first nursing exam. Waiting to find out the results. I know I got one wrong because of a typo...so maybe they will throw that one out. So scared right now to find out if I did badly...>92% is an A. >84% is a B and so on. I just have this overwhelming feeling of stupidity.
It's just the nature of the beast. Nursing tests are unlike any other tests I have ever taken. The type of questions are critical thinking, application based. They just instill a certain degree of doubt upon you after you are finished. My experience so far has been that I typically do better than I think I did. We normally have 50Q MC tests. I always go through and answer all the ones I am certain of first. I go back and then do the ones that I'm not so sure of. I always count how many I wasn't sure of before I turn it in.. Just can't help it. For example, I've had tests where I wasn't sure about 12-14 Q's out of 50, but then when I got the test results I had only missed 3 or 4.Hopefully you will be the same way in this case! You probably did better than you think you did. Good luck!
