    I got 265 questions and am still waiting on my results!!! I defintly feel like I failed Nclex!! I can barely remember any of the questions I was asked!! I just know I cried like a baby all the way home and still some today!!! I find out thursday for sure but it is making me sick to my stomach because I just felt like I didn't know anything on that exam and I did my 3000 practice questions!!! Hey but at least I can take it again!!! I just have a gut feelig that i failed this exam and am very upset about it I don't even know how else to prepare for this exam otherwise!!! I did the Kaplan questions and was making 60's which my teacher told us that if you were making in the high 50's and 60's you are ready for the test, but now I am not so sure!!! Well I have to go work my last couple days as a GN!!!

    This makes me feel a little better! I took mine today and had 265 questions. I would get the harder "prioritizing questions"...like 5 in a row, then I'd get an easy one, then hard. Then a lot of easy ones, then hard. It's hard to know. I was the only one left in the room. I've talked to about 4 people from my school and they had 70-something and passed. UGH. I know everyone is saying that the # of questions does not matter...but it says that it means it took the computer longer to know if you were above the pass rate? I'm thinking that isn't a good thing...? It was hard, I hope I don't have to take it again. Good luck to everyone & best wishes!
    Ok, so I took my exam yesterday, but for PN and mine shut off at 193. I'm hearing all these people ask, including my husband, "were the last questions hard, like the last three and do you think you answered them correctly?" Honestly, I think i got 2 out of the last 3 wrong and the whole test was soooo hard. But i would get a string of easy then hard, then back to a few easy ones, then some harder ones. So does going back and forth give me a not so good of a chance or what? I am so nervous like a lot of people in here!!! And I'm from Cali, so you kno how long I have to beat myself up inside before I find out!

    I've been very unfortunate with the NCLEX-RN. i've been an LPN for 4 years. Took that test, got 75 questions and passed. i've taken this stinking rn nclex 2 x's and failed, (the first time with 191 ?s and the 2nd time with 265 ?s.) I just took it again for the 3rd time(hoping that the 3rd time is a charm) I passed the RN schooling with honors both times....have studied my worn out little butt off. Both times before when I failed, I was only below passing on ONE section!!! Grrr...my first test was psych psych psych...and meds meds meds...meds i didn't even know existed .. the second one just as big of a pain in the butt! Lots of meds (but i ended up being above the passing standard on them!...so here i sit once again going through the agony of waiting!! again!! I don't know how in the world i came down to failing not one x, but twice!! Plus i have the anxiety of not knowing what happens in illinois if you fail the 3rd time...i heard remedial classes and then i've also heard you have to take the ENTIRE last 2 semesters of the RN program again....and the thought of that makes me sick...I can't see going in there 2 x's and being so close to passing they had to give me so many ?s to determine whether or not i could fail it...and walk in and fail after only 75 ?s. This go around it was mostly infection control, safety, meds, priority, MYESTHINIA GRAVIS, and OB!
    And you have to understand, I've worked in geriatrics my ENTIRE nursing career!! Bahh...ok, I'm just freaking. I needed somewhere to vent. thanks for listening to my rant.
    CONGRATS to everyone who did pass, and please please please keep me in your thoughts and prayers...i should hopefully know tomorrow!! if it's good news i wanna know, but if it's bad i don't think i can bear seeing FAIL again lol

    im glad to see this thread. i finished the whole 265 items too and as far as i can remember now (been suppressing myself with the agony of waiting),i had alot of pharma which is in prioritization setup, prioritizations (MS,triage,infectious,everything!), little bit of ob-pedia, 10 select all that apply, 5 not-so-simple computations.but all in all, pharma was the story of my whole nclex. some of them i know, some of them i dont.but even if i know the meds, i still find it hard to answer the question.it wasnt simple at all!!!and that makes me soooo depressed, and had the thought i would not pass.

    i also thought my pc will stop at 75 coz i already had so many select all that apply and computations in that part. but i didnt..and so and so, i got to answer all the questions.i didnt wanna go that far coz i thought id get exhausted and can never answer the questions wisely.but i was alert til 250+..after 250, i got so tired...the last questions still consists of prioritizations, sata, and computation..i felt sick to my stomach coz i got soooo tired of checking if i got the answer right.

    it's true that after the exam,i really didnt know if the whole exam was easy or not.i just forgot.but i was pretty sure it was hard.i still havent got the result and just waiting for it. i hope i will pass just like others did...

    im really nervous now.i was thinking of studying again while waiting for it but am i not too pessimistic if i do that?o well, whatever the result is, i know it's God's will and my faith will still be with me. prayers to everyone!hope we will all pass and be the great nurses ever born!! God bless!!!!

    Hey StrugglerRN, I feel you. I just took the exam yesterday also. I was there 5 1/2 hours I indeed took the whole 265. It seems like they gave me everything from the MEDSURG book. I got 5 math with conversions I was getting them wrong, they threw them back at me. The last time I finally figured it out and did not get anymore. Not too many pharm (thank god). I would not worry about the number of questions you got. Just keep the faith and stay strong. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

    God answers prayers all the time.
