    hi everyone... i took the nclex today and i got 265 questions... i was expecting for the 120 question average. i do not know what to think right now and i'm freaking out and i'm really upset. but reading over the posts to this thread, i'm feeling better... does anyone know anything about that rumor where random people are given 265 questions even though they passed at an earlier number as a research thing?

    That is all it is, a rumour, people are not picked at random to 265 questions. We have also had many members pass with 265 or near. I am sure I was near 265 on my third time and passed. Good luck

    Just got the results and thanks god I PASSED!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you guys for being very supportive... All i have been told for the last two days is that people do get all the questions randomly, so dont freak out if you are the unlucky one... most likely if you had really failed it would have cut off before 265. So just relax and try not to loose your mind, cause I know I did..

    I have a feeling of doom right now. I tested today and I had 265 questions, which I was totally not expecting. I was totally prepared to get a little over 100 questions without getting anxious, that is not how it worked. I feel like I failed after going through all that studying I did. I had 10 math questions and I know for certain that I only got 2 of them. I won't find out my results until Thursday and I don't know what to do with mself until then. My thought is if you get 265 questions the computer did not determine if you passed/failed so once the test is completed how do they make a determination? I am soooo seriously trying to remain positive. I have hope and faith that something will work out for me, even if not this time.

    So I just got home and it took me 265 questions. I know the feeling of doom and I wish I could shake it. I wasnt there for the full 5 hours just a little over 3 but I just dont know what to do with myself. I have to wait till Monday or Tuesday to find out and Im terrified. I took the ATI reveiw course and did so well on everything. By no means did I expect it to be easy I just expected it to turn off sooner. Im trying to stay positive but I just dont know. However after seeing what everyone posted I have some faith. All is not lost with 265 and I guess if i have to retake at least I will know what to expect. Does anyone know how long you have to wait to retest in NJ?

    Wait for your results, you may have passed. Many pass with max number. Good luck

    So I just got the results and I did not pass. Im trying to figure out where to go from here. I have already reregistered with Pearson vue and I have the nursing packet refilled out. I just dont know how to study or what to do differently. I contacted my review course coach and im waiting to hear from her to see what she suggests and I guess I will go from there. Trying to remain positive. At least I know what to expect going in there now. I guess I just hate waiting 45 days to retest but it will probably go by fast. I just have to remain hopeful and positive.

    I cannot believe I took all 265 questions! I had been doing so well on my practice tests from Kaplan but I failed my HESI 3 times (eek!). I kept bouncing back and forth from these "further teaching is necessary" to priority questions. And, sad to say, I even had a few of those "recall" questions. I don't know about those "further teaching" and "client understands if" questions... what level are those? High? Low? Ugh!!!

    I don't know what to do!! I just lost it on the way home. I have a job waiting for me... I was just SURE I'd feel better about this. Any advice is appreciated!!!

    I got a lot of those too!I got a lot of teachings,delegation, prioritization,etc. I even had more or less 10 math! I just found out this morning that i passed with 265 questions! I was certain i failed. i was even planning of taking the test after 45 days. But i asked God and Mama Mary for a miracle, I passed!
    I was doing great on practice tests from kaplan, saunders,exam cram,la charity and nclex 3500. That's why i was hopeless when i got all 265. But hey! I passed! God is really good. Don't lose hope. It's possible to pass even if you got all 265. I'm one of those proofs. Leave everything in God's hand now..
    God Bless!

    It doesn't mean anything. I got 265 questions, and I know for a fact I got the last question wrong and I PASSED!!! Best Day of my life. People pass the boards with 75 questions and some with 265.
