    I took the NCLEX exam for the second time on Monday, April 13, 2009. The first time I got 106 questions this time I got all 265 questions. I left the testing center feeling sick. I knew that I had failed. I was already preparing myself to retake the test again. I found out this morning that I had passed!!!!!!!!!!!! It can be done so for all future students who think that it can't be done. It can! Keep your heads up.

    i know this post is a year old but i took my nclex rn yesterday and had all 265 questions. the man guarding the testing room told me that there are people that get random 265 questions and that i should pick myself up off the floor cause i could be one.

    thanks!

    thats what they were told, that 1 in 4 gets 265. randomly. my 265 was like that, peds, ob, psych, maternity, lots of infection control, and tons of prioritizing. and from what my friends who have taken it said, they got about they same.

    it is wrong, people do not randomly get picked to sit max number of questions. as long as the computer keeps giving you questions means it is borderline on deciding your results.

    I received 25 SATA questions, which I hate and 3 dosage questions. The rest of the test was an array of different areas. I will keep you in my prayers. When will you find out your results? Let us know how you did!

    Okay, so here is my story. I am a 2nd attempter at the NCLEX. The first time I took it I got 75 and failed. I took it for the 2nd time today and had 265. I actually felt better this time around. I got between 20 and 30 SATA, 8 to 10 math, a number of priority, who you see first and a number of drugs. I was looking in NCLEX books and they say that you want to have mostly application and analysis questions. Well Math, SATA, priority and drugs fall under these 2 topics. I am hoping that this is a good sign. I too was told at the testing site that it is possible to be selected as one taking 265 questions even if you are doing well, so who knows. Guess I will found out on Wednesday. I am praying a pass, they pay PCA's crappy money for what they have to do.

    hi guys. i just wanted to share my case. Me and my friend took the nclex exam last april 24. we both had 265 questions and we're both very tired and down because we felt we had the most difficult exam of our lives and failed. we have no quick results so we have to wait for a month. we both tried the pearsonvue trick out of curiosity. and to my horror, only him got the pop-up window and i was allowed to the cc page.. they say that the latter may confirm that you failed the exam.. so now im so down and worried. im still looking for other testimonies that disapproves that trick. does anyone know of someone who was allowed to the cc page but passed the exam? help me pls to ease my anxiety.. tnx

    I passed the NCLEX almost one month ago on my 2nd try - with 265 questions - and today I got hired at The Hospital for Special Surgery in NYC in their OR Nurse Residency Program. It's been a whole crazy ride of up and downs since I failed that first NCLEX but now I can FINALLY begin my career. Good luck to everybody...definitely re-take the exam as soon as you can if you fail the first time...don't lose hope.
    Hi Kei35, I am extremely interested in the OR Residency program at HSS. I have applied, and I meet with the panel really soon. I was wondering if you enjoyed the program, and if you thought it prepared you to be an OR nurse. Also, do you have any advice or suggestions about the panel?? I know I want to be an OR nurse, so any information you could share would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
