Do people really pass after 265 Questions-NCLEX - page 3

Ok. Now I'm really frustrated. I was sitting in that room for over 3 hours and watching the questions count all the way to 265. I was the last person to leave. I'm not feeling very confident. I know... Read More

    OK- I was that person who took the WHOLE test and passed. The lady told me the computer shut down after 80 questions but was programmed for the whole test. Lucky me- and YOU.

    hahaha! oh okay.. they said the last question matters coz its a basis what level of bloom's taxonomy is the last question. for example, my question was psychia its about communication 'nurse to patient', they said (my friends) its an analysis coz you have to think what is the best reply to be given to the patient. oh my! i guess u know i'm in the middle of crisis..anxiety actually hehe

    I have been studying a lot and here are 4 rules I found for prioritization.

    1. Acute beats Chronic (appendicitis beats copd or chf).
    2. Fresh post op beats medical (acute or chronic) or other surgery
    3. unstable beats stable
    4. This is to be used as last resort-The more vital the organ the higher the priority. These organs are listed in order of how vital they are:Brain, lung, heart, liver, pancreas.

    This is in a study guide I have from a class that a friend of mine took.

    that's a good notes you got there.. u know when u answer prioritization, it would depend on the situation, mostly u use ABC's. can u tell me what question ur confuse at? lets try to digest it.

    265 is just the number of questions you got. It does not mean you passed or failed. Try to stay positive. Hang in there. Good luck tjosh.

    Well! I have used this forum for 'support reading' and feel it is time to give back. I sat for the boards Tuesday Jan. 6th and received 265 questions. Like everybody else here it killed me! Today is Jan. 7th and
    "I AM A REGISTERED NURSE" Nobody will get the relief they need from this forum during the 'wait', but I did get some and it helped. As I was getting high in numbers during the test I kept remembering what they told us in school "If the test has not shut off, you have not failed" I also could not get the statistics that I wanted in raw numbers of how many people pass vs. fail at 265. Although, unless those who failed at 265 don't post, it is easy to see, that there are more people posting that they did pass at 265. I too, was sure I failed and could remember tons that I had no idea what the answer was and some that I simply screwed up on. It is a horrible feeling coming out of that test and I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy. I heard how bad you feel, before the test and still could not appreciate untill it happen to me. Good Luck to all who have taken the test and are waiting and to those that are going to take the test!
