My License Posted today!! YAY! NCLEX!

  1. 2
    Hi! I decided to post here because some many people here can relate to our struggles with passing the NCLEX, while other people just don't seem to 'get' it.
    I took my NCLEX-RN exam on October 9th. I passed it with 77 questions, only I didn't know it at the time! I was a wreck! I have always been told and believed that if your still getting questions then you are still in the game! I did NOT want it to shut off at 75 questions because I was terrified that would mean I failed. I was answering questions and I kept looking to see which question number I was on, only to see if I was still in the game! At the 75th question I pressed next and was sooo happy that I went to 76 because that meant I was still in it! I calmed down and decided that I would go to 80 and then take my first break. Well at 77 the test shut down on me! I was sooo distraught! I left and attempted to drive home, but I was so upset I had to pull over. I tried the PVT trick from my cell phone and got the 'good' pop up, but I was still not convinced because of the 77 questions. 48 agonizing hours later, I found out I passed! This last week I have been checking the SBN daily for my license number and was concerned that maybe they changed their mind! They didn't! It posted today! The moral of my story is confidence friends! Something I need to work on myself! We all can do this! It does not matter how many times we have to take the test, WE ALL CAN DO THIS!

    I live in CA, took my exam on 10/3, 75 questions, got the good pop up on PVT, and I still don't know if I passed. VERY frustrating!!!! I hate this waiting game.

    You passed. My classmate took her boards on Thursday, got the good pop up, and her license posted on Friday. I took my boards on Friday, got the good pop up. You passed! Congrats! I forget how long it takes CA to post things, I got my LVN there in 2005.
