Do people really pass after 265 Questions-NCLEX - page 7

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

    I am an LPN. I recently took my NCLEX RN. It took me 5 1/2 hours with all 265 questions. I cried when I walked out of the testing center. I was for sure I had failed. I thought to myself, if I have to retake this test, what am I to do. This is the worst, horrible test anyone can take. One day later, I found out I passed. I was so relieved. I felt a load of my shoulder, life can now continue.... So, for anyone who feels it's hopeless, have faith. Study hard because it's like no other test you have ever taken. But, no matter how hard you study, you will never really be prepared for this exam. The questions are hard and different... But, just try your best and pray..alot. Good Luck to all who is taking this exam....

    Well I took nclex-rn here in CA on Oct. 8th and did all 265 questions too! I tried to pearsonvue trick and got the pop up that I can't register. I shall update when I get my result or see my name on the CABON website.

    I had the same experience, I answered 265 questions for 5.5 hours. I was crying in front of the computer but I told myself I have to go on and do my best in each question. I cried for three days but I keep on consoling myself that I might had a chance to pass it since I notice that the questions are getting harder. After three days I checked with the CABON and I saw my name with RN in it. I know that prayers can truly move mountains! For all of you who's still waiting for the result, just keep on praying! goodluck to y'all

    Congratulations to you azalea04, i took mind the other day and i could just tell that i was going to go all the way to 265 questions. I a ma re taker and the furthest i got was 216 the last time so i figured if i went that far the computer still couldn't tell if i passed or not, so know all i feel like doing is crying b/c i have taken this exam so many times, i still don't see my name on the BON website and i feel like such a disappointment to my family and i don't even want to talk to any of my friends abt it b/c i am sure that they will be saying stuff behind my back and i just cant take that right now. I want to pass so bad, the only thing that is giving me hope is that my last 5 questions were the ones with , best , most, essential, immediate which i believe to be high priotity questions. iam so bummed. which i had money to go to the store and drwon my sorrows.
    Thanks for reading , whoever reads!!!

    For dimples 4321 : Thank u!! =). With prayers and hard work, I finally passed The Nclex RN!
    dimples Keep the faith and hang in there! Whatever happens you have to be strong and stay focus. There is no room for frustrations, keep your head up! Do not think that your a dissapointment to your family because its not true. Families are always there for us no matter what!
    Try to assess yourself, what you need for improvements. You reached 216 questions and look at in a positive way. This means that your almost there and you just need to try more harder. You have started everything and all you have to do is finish it, nobody but yourself can help you. Try new things, assess your study habits and always think positive! Think of happy thoughts and remind yourself that you are surrounded with people who loves you and supports you all the way. In my experience, whenever I feel like giving up, I look for a peaceful place and talk to him and express to him my desire to pass the test and give a good life to my babies. This will help you a lot and give you peace of mind.
    I took my NCLEX-RN twice and failed it the first time. The first time I took the test. I studied hard (I'm 4 months pregnant so this makes it more harder) and did everything to be prepared for the test. But I always have doubts and fears which is conquering my mind. I always think of people and friends, of what they would tell me if I fail the test and how I would react. They always expressed that passing the test will be hard since I'm a foreign graduate and that english is my second language. I was so engrossed to the fact that I will prove them wrong that I forgot about my family and friends who were always there on my side who unconditionally supported me on my review. I don't have time to thank God for all the blessings I had. Its like I don't have a purpose. On the day of my exam, I feel very heavy as if something is wrong. I took the test only for an hour and the computer shuts down at 75. I don't even remember anything about it. After three days, I found out I failed. I was in denial and waited until I received the mail from CABON. There it is right in front of me stating I failed. I was devastated and been crying for a week. My three months of study and hard work have been wasted. Getting 75 questions and failing it made me furious! This means that I'm way below. After I talked to my mom and get some powerful words of encouragement, I quickly get my book and started to study again. I told myself that this time there will never be excuses for me. I have to work really hard in order to reach my goals of becoming RN and also to give a good future for my babies. At this time I'm seven months pregnant so its really hard to study and work at the same time. I'm on the verge of giving up but I keep on reminding myself of the purpose why I have to push myself harder. Prayer also gives me comfort and strenght to stay focus. In my spare time I talk to God and tell him that this time I will pass the test and I need his help. I surrounded myself with positive aura. After the taking my first test I waited 45 days, as soon as i got my ATT, I registered and scheduled my test. I gave myself two weeks to study then took my test. The day before the exam, I never touch any book and just spend time with my family and pray. I realized that having a purpose in life helps you to acheive what you really want in life. The next day, I feel so peaceful. I was able to endure 5.5 hours of answering each question. I never entertained any negative thoughts and just push myself to go on. after two days, I checked CABON and there it is my name with RN in it. It was dream come true!! I was so overwhelmed I forgot that I was pregnant, I ran downstairs and deliver the news to my husband. It was the best time of my life! So dimples hold on to your dreams and keep the faith! You will have your day, just be patient and keep on trying! I hope my story can help you in any way!! *hugz*

    thank you azalea04, i hope that i will be able to conquer it next time, i have not gotten the official results as yet but i am pretty sure that i once again failed, b/c my name is not on the bon website and i really don't wantt o do the pearson vue trick b/c that then makes it too real to me. i just cannnot understand how it is possible for me to fail this exam so many times, i have been struggling with this for over a year now, and i am so close to giving it a break, but my family will not allow me to do that. so i guess now i have to hit the pavement and look for a job until i take this exam again next month, b/c not working and stuff is getting to me justa little bit!
    congrats to u though and all the best

    I just wanted to share my expierence: On Wednesday June 29th I went to take NCLEX for the first time. I went into the testing center confidient that I could pass this test. I reached question 75, the test kept going...got to question 100, again..I kept getting questions. At this point I was starting to get so nervous. So by the time I reached question 265 I was crying. I must have read questions number 265 15 times. Through my years of nursing school I always heard everyone say that if you miss the last question, you fail..if you get it right, you pass. That was all I could think about when trying to answer this questions. After about 30 minutes, I finally answered it. As soon as I got to my car I looked up the answer to the last questions and I had answered it wrong!! I cried for the next 24 hours and must have researched every possible scenario to passing/failing NCLEX. The next day at lunch I kept checking the board of nursing and after about the 20th time looking my name was there!!!!!!!! I HAD PASSED!!! I was in complete shock! SO....I am writing this to say, NEVER assume you failed until you have the results! You CAN PASS and miss the last question!!! The number of questions does not necessarily indicate anything! I contribute my passing to the good Lord seeing fit for my to pass on this try! I hope that my expierence will give someone peace about this awful test. Good luck to you all and may God bless you!!!

    My class was split right down the middle.... half of us got 75 questions to pass and the other half had all 265 to pass. Those that failed had random numbers, but it is def possible to pass after 265!

    With lots of prayer and faith, I passed my NCLEX with 265 questions! If I could have done it.....anyone can! Good luck to those who are preparing to test.

    Im now part of the 265 club. I took the test today and only had about 10 minutes left on the timer when I finished. I wish I could say that I spent weeks preparing for the test but the reality is I spent about 5 days cramming material and doing about 1200 questions. I too was suprised as the questions kept on coming, #100....#150.....#200....finally #265! What I hate is that I had such a slow pace for the first 165 questions that I really had to fly thru the last 100 questions in the last 90 minutes! I have not idea whether I passed or not, but I know that I left the test feeling like I had just wasted 6 hours and couple hundred $'s..........so many questions that came down to 2 answers that both seemed like the "right" answer. I hope I passed, but if I didn't I will get it the second time around. I can be knocked down, but I will never be knocked out!
