Feeling sick to my stomach

  1. I took NCLEX yesterday, and today I am sick, just thinking about how badly I probably did. I know that I got the last question right, all the others, not so sure about. Does anyone know if that is a good sign or not? Anyone know that they definately got the last question right, and passed?

    My feeling on it, is you probably passed. If they keep giving you questions till you either have a good enough percentage to pass....or you get a bad enough percentage for them to know you have failed....then I would think that if you got the last question right, that would have nailed the correct percentage and that would have passed you. BUT this is just my opinion and I have nothing to base it on.

    Go out and have some fun with friends/family and keep yourself busy. Soon you will find out one way or the other, and I think you have passed....

    waiting to see

    I sure hope so. Right now I am just trying to keep busy, and my mind off of the test. I visit the pearson web site every hour, hoping to see the results. Think I will go see a movie

    I take my NCLEx Friday, July 2. Everybody that I have talked to think they have done awful when they leave, and then have passed. I have a classmate that only had to take 75 questions, he RELLY thought he had failed, but he passed. I als have classmate that took all 265 questions, and passed. I guess what I'm trying to say is everyone I have talked to that has taken the boards feels as if they have not done well.

    I just took mine on the 24th and found out I passed on the 26th... I for sure felt like everyone else, thinking I had failed... I had 240 some questions and when it went past 75 I was worried..... but knew I was still in the game since the computer was still asking me questions.............I highly recommend not doing any studying the night before or day of the exam... give yourself time to relax..... I can honestly say the worst expeience for me was the waiting... like your doing and checking the site every hour............. good luck and let us know how you did!

    thank you for your advice and encouragement. our kaplan teacher told us not to study two days before the test, and some say to not study one day before the test.. :uhoh21: but this week i've been trying to relax. i am currently finishin up test 6, tonight and test 7, tomorrow- from the kaplan question trainer cd. i will probably do a 75-100 question test tonight and one more tomorrow morning using the NCLEX 3000 cd. i know for sure i won't do anything at all on thursday. is this okay?

    Can I ask you how you liked the Kaplan review???? I posted a thread on the graduate nurse site. Im trying to survey graduates to see if Kaplan is really worth it. Any advice is helpful. Thanks and Good Luck

    Thanks to everyone for the support I really need it, especially from those who know what I am going through right now.

    I remember clearly what you are going thru and I took boards 30 years ago! Back then (boy, do I sound old), it was 2 days of paper and #2 pencil filling in hundreds of tiny circles. The it took 6 weeks to get results. If you got a thin envelope in the mail, it meant you passed because it just had your scores. If you got a fat envelope, it meant you failed because it was stuffed with info on how to study and how to file to retake boards. At that time they only offered them 2 times per year. Talk about sweating out the results! Good luck on completing your program, you are about to begin an exciting and challenging career. I can't think of anything else I would rather do.

    seniorstudent: I definately know what you're going through now; I took my test at 9:00 this AM. 75 questions and I know I got the last one right, but I'm pretty sure that means nothing. I just wish there was a way to find out NOW instead of waiting!
