How many of you passed or failed at 265? - page 5

    I took boards in february(2 mos. ago) in California. I had 265 questions and passed....but didn't really review much. I took Kaplan and it helped with getting in the right mindset of how to test. I had alot of priority questions, and several multiple multiples.

    I also wanted to say i think it is really vogue for everyone who passes to say "i only got 75 questions." I'm calling bs and i think alot of people are doing it to make themselves seem smarter than others.
    Wow, I never thought saying " I passed at 75 questions" was considered "vogue" or as bragging. Passing with 75 or 265 questions (or any number in between) = RN. Period.

    I passed at 75 questions. What difference does it make? Im still an RN just like people who pass with 265 or any other number.

    I just got my retake results back. The first time I had 265...second time 265 and still failed Everything said "near passing". I am sooooooooooo upset and EMBARASSED that I have to take it for the THIRD time!!!! :angryfire I don't want to have to be the one to take it 20 times! I am not stupid, why is this so hard for me? I'm really disappointed.....I really want this, I've worked hard.

    I took my nclex 3/28/07, which happened to be my second time taking it. Both times I ended with 265 question. I'm from CA and we don't have quick results, so I've been pretty anxious the last several days. But, I've been checking every single day on the boards of registered CA to see if my name would appear......... and 5 minutes ago, and 72 hours later, I just found out I PASSED!!!!!! with 265 questions on my 2nd time. So, yes there is hope. Hang in there. I'm living proof that it is possible to pass with 265 question. Also, Iwanted to add that I was doing suzanne's study giude the 2nd time around, which helped me pass along with lots of praying. Take care.

    Don't be disppointed ! The NCLEX is basically the last torture in the entire nursing education before you're allowed to practice. It is not designed to tell if you are a good nurse nor designed to see how competent you are at work. It is designed to see if you can read their mind (those who set unreal questions). There are some questions that you will never answer right, such as those ask for drugs that we have never heard of. So, you ask, what's the point? Exactly ! When I studied and took the test, I tuned my thoughts to the NCLEX way and used the rationales I read from the study materials. When I'm at work, I have to use a complete different mind set to get things done. You will soon find out that a lot of smart nurses are not textbook bound. You can pass NCLEX !

    [font=book antiqua]my friend and me found out our results after 10 long weeks.
    [font=book antiqua]we are foreign based and foreign educated....
    [font=book antiqua]as what they told earlier, you cant see your name in ca bon if you dont have ssn#.
    [font=book antiqua]my friend passed and got only a piece of paper informing her she "passed" with no lisence number.
    [font=book antiqua]she has to be in us and work legally to obtain a ssn#.
    [font=book antiqua]be patient... yours will come via post only...
    [font=book antiqua]keep us posted...best of luck with the "waiting phenomena.."

    I had to wait about 1.5 months before I found out my results. I ended up calling the BRN in Sacramento. They told me my school never sent off the transcripts!! So I talked with the lady more and she told me I passed. My name showed up on the website about a week later.

    3rd time is a charm! I wish you the best!

    Believe me, I'm just as suprised as you are. My first time taking the test took 3 weeks for me to get my results. And this time within 72 hours checking periodically through the BRN website, which is pretty quick living in CA. Good luck!
