I just took the NCLEX - PN, my thoughts. - page 17

I feel like burning most the LVN review books I bought as they did me no good what-so-ever on the NCLEX. The questions I got came out of left field. Stuff that wasn't taught in school like post... Read More

    Congrats to all that have passed the test!

    Regarding: "www.ncsbn.org website. Any opinions?"

    Yes, I found them to be the best site for the Nclex...best resource ever and worth ever cent.

    Regarding test results?...Mine took 3 weeks to reach me by mail and I lived in Sacramento, CA (where they process them..i assume). This was around the holidays so take it for what its worth.

    I found out that I passed the test.umpiron: I was so nervous. I prayed so much during that waiting period. I was very blessed because I thought there was no way I passed. I can finally start looking for a job because you can now call me DANYA, LPN!!!!!!

    Don't worry about it I am sure you passed not because the number of questions you had but because you prayed really hard. Listen my machine cut off @ 172 questions and i just knew I failed, but guess what I passed and it feels good. I used saunders and Suzzanes testing plan and I was successful andd you will be to.

    The good news is that the vast majority of people that get 85 do indeed pass. Results is 24 hrs.......try waiting 3 weeks!!!!!!! JK> i bet you did fine.

    Lucky you Angeltero with the quick results! And congrads on passing! :hatparty:
    I took mine yesterday 2/26 and have the same feelings as Big B reading back on this thread. Augh. This wait in Calif. is just torture!! How did you ever survive it Big B?
    I'm beating myself up thinking I didn't get one ques. right, but I know I'm only remembering the wrong ones. I need to clear those thoughts and think positive! Now only about 2-3 wks to wait for results.
    And is it true, small envelope=pass lg. envelope=fail ??
    thanks

    The VAST majority of question were priority questions. I had learned all the tricks to answer these in the Kaplan book. Only one big problem....the priority questions in kaplan are a complete joke (very easy) compared to the actual NCLEX ones which were brutal.

    I have heard that too about the NCLEX, as well as management questions.


    So hear I sit and have to wait 3 weeks to get result in CA. I will start checking the LVN board website next week, but I have a bad feeling my name won't be up there and I will have to take the NCLEX again.[/quote]

    Live and learn - I heard that Linda Silvestri's books are the best.
    Don't give up!

    Diahni,
    I hear that our name won't get posted on the website until we pay our license fee. I guess we get the paperwork to send in with the "pass" letter mailed to us? What is it $120 ?
    So snail mail and we wait...

    Yeah I heard the same thing. No names are posted on the LVN website until you pay for your license. I have been waiting 15 days and still nothing! This is complete torture!! I just wanna know one way or another so I can move on. Anyone know how long you have to wait in california to retake the test if you fail? one person said 3 months and another said 6 weeks. Good luck to those of you waiting with me!!

    Poohbear73,
    It's 45 days from the test date according to the NCSBN website. Then you will be allowed to log on to Pearson and make your appt. from what I read.
    But....hey lets not go there!! We can't think like that!

    I was the 2nd in my class to take it. The 1st person hasn't heard yet and it was 3 wks Fri. But then I read another post that it took her 2 wks so maybe you'll be inbetween and hear today! But just like the exam it's probably different for everybody! So we just sit and wait...

    I was the second one to take the test as well. My friend heard back at 15 days and he failed. Ugh...however, there was just a holiday so maybe they are a little behind. I hope I hear something today...my mail comes around three so we will see!!
