    I think when I took my boards it was a day and a half of testing, preset number of questions, everyone had the same. I believe it was the first year for the comprehensive board, 1982. Anyone remember more details? Please refresh me. Thanks. Also, BEST LUCK ON PASSING TO ALL COMERS!!!

    75 for me too today. no meds, only 1 alternate answer question, no OB, no peds specific, and only a couple of psych that i remember. majority were priority (who will you see/ call back first?) and a TON of drugs. my drug questions were really hard, most of them i have never heard of, and werent easily identifiable!!

    i am trying not to do the "who passed/failed at 75?" game. i know that number of questions doesnt really matter, but have heard from several places that only getting 75 is a good sign. i think that, for my sanity sake, i will go along with them for the next 48 hours!!

    even though i know it is a little (maybe a lot) obsessive, i couldnt help checking the website tonight. of course, there is nothing there!!! come on, do they REALLY need 48 hours to grade a computerized test? it should be automatic!!! it cuts off after so many questions, and then the screen pops up and in huge letters it will say your name, with "RN" after it!! now wouldnt that be fabulous?!!!!!!

    EXACTLY! when you take the HESI, it instantly tells you the score, plus the questions you miss AND the rationale.. so how hard could it be for NCLEX to say " Pass" or "Fail" when it shuts off?? its a freakin computer, it KNOWS what you have scored. its not like the monkeys in the corner have to pull out their fingers and toes and tabulate the score!!!!!!!!

    Hi,

    NCLEX is scored TWICE which is why it doesnt give score right away.

    Im with you all. Took mine yesterday at 9am...blahhhh. Soooo many meds. Most of which I had/have never heard of and the generic names didn't give any clues into their classes. Shut off at 75 but Im not feeling it. Im in California so I could be waiting weeks...I sure hope Im one of the lucky ones who gets results in 3 days...Good luck to all!!!

    yes!!!!! awesome, so awesome!! i am so happy for you and everyone else that passed.

    okay i take mine in 32 hours :uhoh21: :stone

    i know i have to stay positive...i am finishing studying today by finishing the prioritizing, delagation and assignment prep book. i will have done every question in the book. i will also look over math, like 10 problems or so which i am not worried about, do some more nclex cd questions from nclex 3000 and lippincott. tomorrow i will exercise in the morning, go to the beach, have my massage, go out to dinner with my husband, relax and hopefully fall asleep real early and no studying. friday is the day.....wake up, eat breakfast and go (look over my list of values as well before i go in). then i have to wait until monday to find out :behindpc:
