    I still dont know if I passed because I was never given a password or a username on pearson vue, and no phones in NJ can call 1 900 phone #'s,
    The first thing you should have received about the NCLEX should have had your username and password. It was the paper or email that basically said, this is not your att..... it was basically confirmation that you had registered. Did you not schedule online?

    I took the NCLEX last Wednesday...stopped at 85 and only 1 math question. Most of mine were prioritization, about 10 check all that apply, a couple on meds and a smattering of other things. I walked out thoroughly convinced that I'd failed but I didn't.. The hardest part now is the wait. Good luck....

    I think that if you walked out of NCLEX thinking that you failed, that is the average feeling that most people walk away feeling. I thought that my exam was a disaster, but it was not. I did not see much of anything that my school emphasized on, or the review course, but I must assume that there was a great deal of critical thinking. I remember laughing to myself saying that it was either that my test was evaluated on two questions, or that the computer saw me cry and felt sorry for me...LOL

    Most people I know (and even myself) scheduled by telephone. I had the comfort of hearing a voice and also, the list of places to sit for the exam was not complete, therefore, I had to speak someone to get to a location that was about a mile from where I lived...much better than taking several subway trains.

    I stopped at85 today as well. I had tons of psych, prioritize, and a huge amount of check all that apply. I just kept saying to myself, "I would love to check all that apply if I knew what the heck you were talking about". I'm scared. I don't feel confident at all. There were four drug questions that I had no idea about, never heard of them. None of my other classmates got more than one check all that apply. Wondering whose Karma I stepped on to get the class quota on my test.
    I have a running joke that I pissed off the computer, because I had at least 7 'all that apply' in a row as well as about 5 drugs that I never saw before. I remembered one of them and checked when I found out that I passed, and I was lucky...it was correct. I remember saying to myself "This answer is TOO crazy...this MUST be what they want to hear..." and choosing it.

    livin my dream, yes I feel the same way you do, I was cut off at 85 questions too and I feel horrible about the test. All of the questions seemed like they were equally hard. I live in Ca. so im still waiting for my results, I took my test on Aug. 17th. I am so anxious and scared because I heard that all of my classmates who have taken the test have passed and to make things worse I graduated with honors and if I don't pass I am going to be so embarrassed. I feel as if I didn't pass but reading the comments here makes me feel better because it seems to be a common feeling. Good luck to both of us. What state do you live in? maybe you will get you results before me.
    What you have to keep in mind is that each person gets an individual exam, and there are those that may have it easier than others, for whatever reasons. I personally don't understand why NCLEX chooses this way of questioning, because it does not seem to prove to me that anyone is any safer, but just remember that this will not be a reflection upon you as a person. Best wishes to you and good luck!

    Livin my dream,
    I too felt like they were equally hard with the exception of a few 2 or 3 easy questions. I think that is a good sign that you passed. I too felt like I failed. I swore I did. I took the RN and passed with 75. I walked out telling my husband I am a genius or I failed miserably. (certain that I failed and not sure what to do next) I also had no math questions at all. just a ton of med ones. Good luck to you but I beleive 85 is a really good sign! My cousin just took the PN and passed with 85!

    I felt the same way. When I studied and practiced random questions, I found that out of every 100, I would get about 15-20 incorrect. Therefore, I came up with this weird theory that if I at least got 100 questions, I can guarentee that I would pass. In fact, I did NOT WANT to shut down at 85...I wanted at least 100. When it shut down at 85, I SWORE that I had too many wrong out of my theory. I considered myself to be on the failed miserably because I was an idiot side of the fence. No one was more shocked than myself to hear that I passed with minimum...and I was finished within 40 minutes.

    I had just taken my boards last September 27. It stopped at 85. No med calculation at all. I was bombarded with prioritizing, diets, and choose all that apply. Now, I am waiting for my result. I can't even sleep. I feel like i'm having a heart attack every time i think about the result.

    I got no maths whatsoever on my N-CLEX RN & passed at 75. I'm sure you did just fine! Stop worrying - it won't change anything anyway!

    So easy to say after the experience!

    I took my NCLEX yesterday (Saturday 9/24/11) in Florida for the PN. My exam stopped around 88 and had no math questions. I freaked because of it! But I just went online to PearsonVue.com and went to register for another exam and the little window that popped up and said " Candidate has previously passed this exam. A new appointment cannot be schedualed." So! I am hoping that means what it says as literally as it can get. Didnt see anything on the internet with this actual wording for posts so here it is. A friend of mine that took it with me got the same pop up. So I think i passed? I will see soon either tomorrow or Tuesday.
