NCLEX RN exam when you stop at 75, pass or fail?

  1. Here is it, i just pass the nclex rn exam and my exam stop at 75, im very worried because when i looked at my book my answers were wrong particulary on delegation, prioritization and infectious control this are all cases. Ithink all in all it was 20-30 items, well i considered this as hard questions. But im sure that i got all the easy questions. So when you think about this you consider your self as afailure because according to the NCSBN 50 percent of the easy and 50 percent of the hard questions must be correct to pass but in my case i dont believe it cause i only answered the easy questions. so when you take your exam ask your self "have i aswered the easy question surely"? and if it is 50 percent of the entire exam then i think you will PASS.

    With 75 questions you can pass or fail. There is really no technique to help you figure it out ahead of time.

    You either passed with flying colors or you failed big time.

    This question has been asked hundreds and hundreds of times here. There is no way to know if you passed or failed other than through your BON.

    Hi! New person here - I think what this person is saying is that she passed, but that she feels uncomfortable with the ones she got right versus the questions she got wrong - is that correct?

    There is someone that posted an amazing thread about how the test works and why so everyone thinks they failed it, and as someone who has never taken the test, it was a huge education as to how it worked and a very interesting read.

    Moved to NCLEX Discussion Forum. Would just like to echo the thoughts of the previous posters. We sympathize with you, but there really isn't a way to forecast your results just based on the number of questions or a description of question types.
