So I just took the NCLEX yesterday. The computer shut off at 95 questions
. Did the PVT and got the "An exam has already been scheduled....Contact your Board of Nursing.....Cannot schedule another exam at this time...." pop-up.
I was a nervous wreck because I didn't really study at all
. I did maybe a total 300 practice questions over a couple of weeks time and read some of Saunder's Strategies for Test Success the day before the test and that's it.
My test had a ton of SATA like 30-35, a ton of prioritization and delegation, 10 or so meds (most of which I had no clue about), 3 exhibit questions, not a single med calc, but 5 EKG strips....
...But they weren't like "Here's the strip, what's the rhythm?" they were like "Here's 4 strips, which patient would you NOT give this med to?" or "You see this strip, what do you do first
?" I thought I did really well on them, but I almost had a heart attack when I saw them and read the questions.
I was so scared when I got to question 76 and it didn't shut off. Then I started biting my nails when it got past 85 and didn't shut off. I was just hoping and hoping and hoping that it would shut off!!! And finally it did at 95 (WHEW!
) So glad that's over and done with!
