    congratulations!!! :hatparty:

    i had a feeling you would be posting good news!

    yes, i really do know how you feel! getting 265 questions was the worst. i was there for 4 hours. i was definitely not expecting that. when i took the lpn exam last year i got the minimum number of questions (85) and was out of there in 45 minutes! but the rn test really kicked my butt. i had to keep reminding myself that as long as the computer kept throwing questions at me i was still in the game. i had a cold, couldn't breath, was trying not to disturb the other test takers by coughing, and they had to bring in tissues for me, only 2 at a time. my head was so congested it felt like it was in a vice. not the ideal test taking experience! yes, i tried to reschedule the exam, but all the test dates were booked through july and i'm supposed to start my new job on the 19th (no stress there!) i was so down in the dumps when i left. i drove to the cemetery to spend some time "with" my mom. she got to see me get my lpn, but not my rn and i was sobbing. that's a whole other story. my stupid cold was getting to me and i went through a whole box of kleenix at the cemetery!

    i was so scared to check the pearson site that i had my son on my lap so i could squeeze him for comfort upon seeing the bad news. i was wondering how i would be able to get through taking that test again. and then when it said "pass" i still burst out crying. then i thanked god.
    my whole body was so worn down from the experience that it took a couple of days to actually be able to enjoy the news.

    anyway, congratulations to the both of us! hope you get to celebrate like you so deserve! you're an rn now!

    Thank you surgeryrn. I felt like my mom was there in spirit. When I told my dad that I passed, I burst into tears saying I wish mom knew - and he said, "she knows." It made me feel better.

    I'm going to work in labor & delivery. First I have to move. I didn't want to move until first making sure I passed the NCLEX. Now I have to find a place to live - in San Diego. The stress never ends, but this is a good kind of stress. Much better than the stress of the NCLEX!!!

    You're lucky to be almost done with orientation. Good luck with your career. I'm so happy for you. Enjoy your success!

    I just took my NCLEX exam yesterday, 06/21/07. It was HORRIBLE. I took it over an hour away from my hometown, by myself. I came out just crying my eyes out. I had the entire 265 questions and it took me right at 5 hours to complete it. I feel so awful about the test. I am scared that I haven't passed!!! Does anyone have any words of wisdom, encouragement, anything?

    Hey Kristylayne,
    Dont be too hard on yourself. I felt the exact same way. When the number turned 76 i was in a state of shock and it got worse as the numbers increased. I could feel my mind giving out and convinced my self that i had failed and just wanted to go home. But i said a little prayer and chugged along. I started to tear as i came out of the testing place and the procter looked up at me and could see i was upset. He said to me "Are you in charge of your life?" Im thinking what? He says to me " God is in charge of your life and do you think God would want anything evil to happen to you?" That made me smile but i still cried all the way home and called my mom to tell her i failed. After two heart renching days of waiting and praying i saw the pearsons quick results that i had passed!!! Now dont think im a religion nut cause im not but i have faith that you will do fine. Just keep on praying, God saw all the hard work and effort you put into studying and wont let you down. Keep us posted

    I too took my NCLEX on 6/21/07, three hours from my home town and ended up getting all 265 questions also. It took me about 3 hrs. I was so scared that I had failed I cried pretty much the whole drive home. I got my results on Saturday 6/23/07 and I passed!! Keep your head up and stay strong. Best of luck. Update when you know your results.
