    265 questions? Dont sweat it too bad. I know thats easier said than done. I just took my NCLEX this past Tuesday. (6/25) My two study buddies took theirs the previous week. We usually scored very close together when we took practice tests together. (usually within 3-6 incorrect answers with tests of 175 questions) Both of them only had 75 questions. Both of them passed. I had all 265 questions and was scared out of my mind. I barely slept last night and I was checking the quick results every 15 minutes from 8 o'clock on to see if I failed. I just found out I passed. I have also been talking to some of our classmates that also had 265 questions. Every one of them passed too. Having 265 does NOT mean you failed. It only means you needed more questions to ensure you met the required minimum knowledge. Best of luck to all that are sweating while waiting on their results.

    I wasn't assuming I failed because I had 265 questions. I know I failed, but thanks for the encouragement. I have since bought a pharmacists study guide there was so much pharm on my exam. I need to memorize my drug book. I paid for the quick results and my graduate nurse info has been yanked. I know I failed. Just wish I could hear something soon about when I can test again. Tired of waiting.

    hey everyone,
    I feel just like everyone one here just took the nclex rn finished about 4 hrs ago received the full 265 questions and i feel HORRIBLE!!!!! I am trying to remain up beat and optismistic BUT it is hard i dont know anybody personally that has received the full 265 but thank god i found this site. Hopefully i passed i will check back when i found out if i passed/failed. I took the pn nclex two years ago and felt the same way but ionly had 185 querstions and the computer shut off. I guess a lot of praying is in order:icon_roll

    mshodge6 did you pass??? I took my exam yesterday and I had 265 questions, I feel like I don't know anything right now. I feel like I am not worthy of being a nurse. I have my LPN, I have had it for 1 year now, maybe I should just stay a LPN. I have to wait until Tuesday to find out how I did, this is going to be the longest 2 days of my life. Please everyone who reads this pray for us nurses, this is the hardest thing I have ever done.

    Thanks GinaRNbaby for responding, I am pretty positive that I failed.....I had 3 math questions that were pretty much asking me the same thing. I think I just freaked and started to panick, then I couldn't think strait. I will just have to study more for the next exam.

    Hey everybody,

    I am also one of the few that had 265 questions on NCLEX-RN yesterday. I am feeling like the world's biggest idiot right now. Can we say heart palpitations!!!! :heartbeat I have this horrible pit in my gut right now that says you have failed the biggest and most important test you are ever going to take in your career! I have prayed and studied so much in the past weeks it isn't even funny! I don't know how I am going to break the news to family, friends, and prospective employers that I failed. And if I have to take this test over again, I don't know how I can study more and/or differently than I did before! I wish there was a magic wand out there that could take all of this anxiety and stress. I think these are going to be the longest 48 hours of my LIFE!! lsebeg:

    I would really like to hold onto the dream that it IS possible to pass this test 5 hours and 265 questions later, but I just don't think I can. Part of me wants to go and reschedule the next test right now. Maybe I should?? Can you do that before your results are back???

    Help, I think I am in a downward spiral right now, and can't get up!!!!

    Hang in there CaringJules, I paid the $7.95 to find out the quick results and I passed!!!!! I too had 265 questions and 5 long long hours of answering questions. My brain was mush afterwards, my husband drove and thank god because I couldn't even remember which day it was. I asked him "today is Monday right?" He looked at me with big eyes and said "No. Are you alright?" And all I could think about was how I had failed the test, I even bet him a weeks vacation that I failed. I now have to take him on a vacation (my expense). Well anyways I had went to this site right away to find out how many people got 265 questions and passed. Just seeing that others went through the same thing made me feel better. I wish you the same results as mine, and as far as I can tell most of the nurses that did have 265 questions did indeed pass. Hold your head up, and keep believing in yourself.

    Bgiebs,

    Thank you so much for the words of encouragement. I wish I could say that all of my anxiety was relieved and that I was in a better place, but you know how it is. This waiting is horrible and I can't seem to get that darn test out of my brain! I just KNOW that I failed that test, I keep hoping that I am wrong, but I just can't shake the feeling. I truly hope that I am wrong and that I have the same results as you. I came home and almost sobbed in my husband's arms. He has been so supportive and sacraficed so much. It is so excruciating to think that we got this far for me to not pass at the end of it all. I even asked him if he was still going to love me or be disappointed in me that I failed. He was of course did his best to reassure me that he loves me no matter what and that there is no way that he could be disappointed in me. That is pretty hard to believe when I am so disappointed in myself right now.

    So sorry for the pity party. I figure if anyone understands it is the people that are on this board that are either going through or have gone through the same thing. Sorry Bgiebs, I will try to start believing in myself. It is just super hard right now. Fingers crossed I will find out tomorrow either way.

    Thanks again for trying to lift my spirits!:icon_roll

    Bgiebs and everyone else that has posted on here,

    THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!! You kept my spirits up through my darkest hours. This was the longest 48 hours of my life!!!! I just paid for the results online through Pearson Vue and found out that I passed!!!! WOOHHOOOO!!! I actually got a job offer 1 hour before I found out that I indeed passed my boards. For anyone else that comes on here and thinks that 265 questions and 5 hours can't be done, well...... IT CAN!!!!!! Don't loose heart. Like Bgiebs said to me, keep believing in yourself.

    Thanks again everyone for helping me to have that little glimmer of hope.

    Signed,
    CaringJules..... NEW RN! (man that feels good!!!)

    Oh ubshelly,
    I know exactly how you feel. This was the most daunting test and the wait is even worse. I can tell you that going through this thread and reading all of the posts from everyone else that passed helped to keep hope in my heart that I passed. I also did a lot of praying and did like someone else on here told me to do and that is to believe in myself. No matter what ubshelly, don't lose faith in your abilities and for sure don't give up hope that you too passed this test. It can be done and we are all proof of that. I know that these next days until you find out are the most difficult ones, but keep praying and believing. I will keep you in my prayers :bowingpur Don't worry, we are all proof that you can pass this test!!! Good luck and keep us posted with your results. Remember......

    YOU CAN DO IT!!!

    Thank you so much for your words of encouragement, I want to believe that I passed so bad, so im going to try and keep my spirits up and pray that I passed. Its very nice to hear from someone that understands what it feels like, i tried talking to my boyfriend, but he doesnt have a clue as to how big a test this is or about how unnerving it is. I hope that I will have some good news to report back to you in the days to come. Thanks again for the encouragment.
