    so then, does anyone KNOW someone who failed and stopped at 85???????? May put me a little more at ease too.........
    This informal voluntary poll here helped me feel confident when I was waiting. Its by RNs who stopped at 75 which is their minimum. As of last time I checked it was only 10% that didn't pass.

    I had a friend who failed her NCLEX @ 85. She said she really felt good about the test and probably passed... but after a couple of weeks, she found out that she actually failed. thats was 2 years ago.. and now, shes planning on retaking it again.

    however, i passed @ 85! it was the most nerve-racking thing ever! so keep your head up.. im sure you did fine!

    I only got 85 questions and I passed. I have only known one person who failed with less than 90 questions.

    I am so afraid that I did not pass my boards today. My test stopped at 85. I was like don't do this to me. I studied, but I just feel as if I didn't pass.

    So many people walk away feeling the way that you did, yet the pass! I wish the same for you. Good luck!
