Just took nclex and about to panic!!!!

  1. Okay I have so many questions that i do not know were to start...\

    I took my nclex-pn exam on may 25, 2007 and i am about to freak out. I want to know my results so badly . Is there any way I can found out if I passed are not. I live in Mississippi and they do not participate in the quick results. I have been checking the sbon website to see if my number will appear. Does anyone know how long will it be before it posts on the website? a classmate of mine said that it will post on the internet on pearsuvue and that she got hers there. but all i see there is delivery sucessful does this mean i passed???

    after taking the test i felt confident the questions were not that hard kinda medium to me. i had to sit and think about them before giving a answer, but there were a few that i did not know. most of the questions were priority type questions like what would i do first type questions. I also had alot of patient teaching questions. there were alot of priority questions dealing with cardio, resp, and maternity.i did not receive any math questions and onlt a few pharm questions that i am sure i missed. The computer cut off at 85 i was there for 1 hour. at first i was glad because i felt good about the test than as the day went by i started to worry that i failed. is there anyway that you can tell if you passed or not by the type of questions you received. i heard that the more difficult the question the better you are doing. what is considered a difficult question and what is considered a easy one.

    is it true that if you ansewr the last question right that you passed and if you got 85 quetions that you passed???

    i am so nervous . i want so badly to pass. please someone help

    Try not to think about it...coz the more you think about it...the worse
    the feeling becomes. I took all 265 q's and sat there for over 5 hrs!!!

    Those feelings you're experiencing are normal. I went through them too.

    I took my test on a Thursday...found out Tuesday morn that I passed.
    I kept myself upbeat all day Friday...started to agonize over the weekend. By Monday I was having doubts thinking the worse had happened, but in reality, I had passed and didnt know it yet.

    My license had been issued on Monday, but the BON didnt post the license till Tuesday on their website. I was getting myself upset for nothing.

    So don't sweat it. Go do something FUN this weekend!!!

    The difficulty level is assigned by giving many students the question as an unscored item (just like you had many unscored items on your exam) and looking at how many people got it right. In general, people believe that priority questions and select-all-that-apply questions are harder, but there is no way to know for sure about the difficulty of an individual question.


    Unfortunately, the last-question-right rumor is just a rumor. A person could still be below the passing standard after getting #85 correct - just no way to know.

    Good luck to you! Let us know what you find out!

    TJames, I feel for you cuz I am in the same boat with you. I too am in MS and took my NCLEX RN on the 24th. Unfortunately, we chose to take our boards on a weekday prior to Memorial Day weekend. Don't expect to see anything on the MS Board website til tomorrow at the earliest due to the holiday. Also I don't know how your friend got her results on the testing website as MS does not participate in Quick Results. When I checked the website after taking mine, I got the same results of "Delivery Successful>." It also said in bold letters that my board does not participate in Quick Results. Good luck. Don't feel like you are alone. I waiting just like you are.

    Thank you so very much for the encouragement. I can't hardly wait to find out my results. To make matters even worse my car broke down on me Thursday night and my mechanic is not available until after the holiday so I have to sit here in the house the whole holiday weekend waiting in agony for my results.

    Is there any other way that I can find out my results ???

    Good luck to everyone who is waiting for their results in the state of Mississippi a state that does not participate in the quick results

    I'm afraid we are going to have to suffer together until it is posted on the state board website. Otherwise wait until it comes in the mail. I am an LPN hoping my "LPN" will change to "RN" on the website. O by the way. It used to be that the size of the envelope showed you whether you passed or failed: Large=Failed, Small=Passed. The size of the envelope does not matter anymore as pass and fail come in the same size envelope since the License are different now.
