My NCLEX shut off at 77 Q

  1. *Arrrrggggghhhh* I honestly don't know what to think. Just like so many of you here, I'm so anxious about my result. I'm trying to convince myself that I passed. 77Q in itself is a good sign, isn't it? I got a lot of priority questions ("which one should the nurse see first?", "what should the nurse do first?", "what is essential/necessary?"). Those are also good signs, right? I got no med math and only 1 ABG question.
    I'm such a nervous wreck right now. I heard it would take about 1 month to get my official result from the CA board. Some say I might be able to find out in 3 days in their website but I just found out that my school sent my class' transcripts late and they still haven't received it yet. It's soooo frustrating.
    Anyways...I just wanted to vent since so many of us here are in the same situation. Thanks

    did you find out your results yet????? I took mine today and computer shut off at 78.......I'm dying! When I was walking out of Pearson the TA tells me hmmmmm 78 that's a good sign!!!! What does that mean???? I know you can pass or fail at 75, and that if you get past 75 it means you are still in the game - but did we convince the computer with only a few more questions??? I feel HORRIBLE right now!!!!! Please let me know when you get your results, I am in CA and should find out by Thursday. Hope you passed!!!!

    Wow! I just took mine today and I got 107 questions then it just shut off. The board just got out transcripts two weeks ago and every who took the test after the board got our transcripts new within 3 days whether they passed or failed. The was one person in our class who took there boards in early Jan. and it took a month to find out because they did not have out transcripts. Hopefully we all passed.
