Hi I'm Michael and i'm a licensed nurse in the PI. Im here right now in US to take my nclex exam..
My question is how many percentage do i need to pass the nclex.. I know that it depends on how many questions i will be able to answer but in case i answered up to the last, how many percent is passing rate? Is 50% or above?

...Maybe it's just whether you did well enough or not to cross that 50% line?
If you run out of time you have probably done a majority of the 265 questions possible. If the computer is still giving you questions, you have yet to prove to the computer with 95% certainty that you are above the nursing standard or below the standard. So, your answers have been dangling around that line. If the computer didn't eliminate any of the questions, the test would be inconclusive-- you neither passed nor failed. The computer then only considers the last 60 questions. I would rather they take the last 60 (after you are warmed up) rather than the first 60.
