Just took my NCLEX-PN today

  1. 0 and I'm just so so so scared.

    It was just so scary.

    The computer shut off at 85-- which is minimum. And I just felt like... UGHHH OMG. Like I felt like I didn't know as much as I needed to, and just was taking my best guess at all of them. I mean, I guess there were only a few that I really REALLY had no clue on, but there were also very few that I was 100% sure on, too. Just so scared, sick to my stomach.

    I tried that supposed Pearson Vue trick to find out early, and got the "good" popup, but I just feel like that's not like a guarantee.

    Just a whirlwind of emotions-- I want SO MUCH for that silly trick to be right, but I also don't want to get my hopes up and be HEARTBROKEN when I find out for sure.

    AUUUUGHHH somone console me.
    How did you guys feel about your test afterwards?

    I think it's a better sign than not to get cut off on the minimum. I think if you answer wrong in certain subjects they add more questions. I hope that helps ease you nerves a little bit...

    I used ATI books that I got in school, and a Kaplan strategy guide. And my notes, and drug notecards I had made through school.

    Good luck to you
