    :redlight: [font=microsoft sans serif][color=dimgray]i took mine the other day in ca and the damn thing shut down at 75 q's. i was hoping it would, but i was also hoping to walk out of there feeling more confident than i did. too bad you couldn't skip questions then go back and answer them later. the whole test took me about 2 hrs (?). it's kind of all a blur. i know for sure that i didn't pass even though i don't have anything in writing from my brn. how long does it take in ca to receive your results? i was looking at the ncsbn website (driving myself crazy) and there are pass/fail powerpoint examples on there. the fail presentation showed 75 questions with the pass example having over a hundred (i think, if i remember correctly). oh well, i guess i have another 45+ days to study. i took the kaplan review and read stuff out of my med-surg, ob, psych and drug books to prep. congrats to all those who did pass with 75 questions.

    Hi! I just took my NCLEX today...it was by far one of the worst experiences. I also got 75 questions and most were pharm and priority! Plus, I had several "Check all that apply" ! I hate those!

    Anyways, I 'm pretty sure I will be one of the few who fail at 75! I did fine in school (also have a BSBA) and got a 98% chance of passing NCLEX on some NLN test our school made us take. I studied by doing Q&A's from a MOsby CD! I just can't believe how bad I feel!

    I guess 45 days to retake isn't too long but I wanted it to be OVER for the sake of my family. Oh well, I'll keep trying if I do fail which I hope to know tomorrow! Can't believe it came down to 75 questions in 60 minutes!

    Did you find out on the rn.ca.gov website?

    Cress101 - don't hang yourself out to dry just yet. I think almost everyone walks out feeling like they failed. Seriously - you may very well have done fine. So many people on this site passed with 75 questions, and almost all said "I was certain I failed."

    I'm waiting for results in CA too. I took mine yesterday.

    Best of luck to you.

    Thanks. We'll see...Are you still really anxious? I'm thinking about what to do to prepare for the next nclex. I'm not feeling like studying right now though. I spent over 6 months studying for this test. I guess that's why I'm not feeling like I passed.

    Cress101...just hang in there and don't forget to breath...I was anxiety ridden and planning for the next test too until 4 o'clock this morning. I don't think there are many people who come out of that test with anything but doubt and anxiety. Three days seems to be the magic number for results right now...When did you take your test? I went on

    and on verify professional license...put in your last name, full name...whatever...my name starts with ab so i was right at the top. Relief is an understatement...good luck!

    I took my NCLEX this morning, and it sounded very similar to yours. Lots of priority, no calculations...shut off at 75. I'm a nervous wreck and it's only been 12 hours! I was shocked when I walked out of that room in just over an hour.

    Good luck to you!!
    Also sounds similar to the one 1 took last year .... guess what? I passed.

    So take it easy .....
