Just took my NCLEX today

  1. Hi ,
    I took my NCLEX today. I walked out of the testing center feeling very unsure of myself. I did real good in school. I averaged 95 % .This is the first time I really think I didn't pass.It's really frustrating. Now I've got to deal with the big waiting game. I'm still hoping for the best. Just thank GOD it's not the end of the world and I'm still breathing. lol

    I moved your post to the NCLEX Discussion Forum so that you get the most responses. Good luck to you! Keep in mind that the test is set up so that both passers and failers get ~50% right and 50% wrong, so just about everyone walks out feeling dreadful. Let us know how it turns out!

    I'm trying so hard not to worry. Hopefully by tomorrow I'll calm down a bit.

    How did you feel about what you studied vs what was on NCLEX?

    I felt like I did all that studying for nothing. I was expecting to see something about Cushing or Addisons maybe Pyloric Stenosis or PH balance.Something! But no! I got slapped with the med book. I know a couple meds Metherigine-Pitocin-Thorazine-Lasix- ect.... but I got meds I don't even recall reading about.

    What's your question? You sound like you felt how everyone else does after they take the NCLEX. Enjoy the fact that it's over!!

    Hmmmmm, I guess all felt that way after taking the exam and then suddenly finding out that they have passed the exam. Seems to me that mos here passed that monster exam and I believe that you can also make it. God Bless you!

    the test is very hard, but honestly, the test is not about being smart, or having a high GPA.... it's about logic. The nclex is not testing you to see if you are an expert at nursing, they just want to know if you are a safe practicioner at an entry level position. it's a basic nursing test.
    I felt the same way you did a couple of days ago... but I know in my heart I did the bes I possibly could... I just wasn't sure if I picked the right things.

    *****you will do great!
