    I passed with the minimum number, 85 I think.

    Hang in there! Getting a particular number of questions doesn't really give you certain odds of passing, other than to say that most first-time US-educated candidates do pass and generally select-all-that-apply questions involve higher levels of difficulty, which is actually a good sign. Let us know.

    There is no way to tell, but from what I hear, the more difficult the questions become, the better you were actually doing. I have seen people pass or otherwise with very odd numbers. One of my friends sat for NCLEX-RN and did all 265 questions, taking close to 4 hours. When she finally looked up, she saw that she was the only one sitting in the test site. And, yes, she passed. Good luck, and I hope that you find out soon.

    I live in New Jersey and I passed with 86 questions. I am pretty sure you passed. If the computer shuts off with that small of a number of questions it usually means you have proved that you have the ability and the computer doesn't need to ask you anymore. If you were doing bad the computer probably would have tried to give you the chance to prove yourself. I think you passed! Good Luck!!!

    I passed with 85. Did you feel confident in your answers? Or did you feel lost in space? More than likely if you felt you knew the answers then you DID pass. Good luck!

    I had 85 and passed. Can you not look on the Cal BON and see if you were issued your license?? We here in VA. could tell our results the 2nd day after taking test, just went to BON and looked up our name to see if we had been issued a license and wala there it was! Good Luck.
