NCLEX RN shut off on 75 yesterday.. but

  1. it seems i had to guess on many of the questions. i am worried sick....... i made 99.99 on every school HESI exam, but this NCLEX exam was tough. they say if u get a lot of hard questions, it means u are doing good. anyone have any thoughts on that???? i was just shocked to see that it shut off on 75 (as did my LPN NCLEX 6 years ago). i keep calling the result number and checking online, but no news yet. it seems a lof of my questions were geared towards pharmacology (which im great at) or infection control (who would u room with who ect) and delegation.... TONS of OB nurses coming to med/surg on my test ROFLMAO. please, any thoughts would make me feel better, ill let u guys know tomorrow if im an RN or still an LPN, either way, ill be happy but could SURE use that pay increase!!!:spin:

    It took EXACTLY 49 hours for my "unofficial" PASS to be available at the Pearson website.

    Don't stress.... I'm confident you did well.

    If I could bet a million dollars that you passed I would do it with confidence.

    Congratulations!!!!! You did it!!!!

    btw, when you're on the floor whiping poop off your scrubs, while trying to decode stat pre-op orders (with ER holding on the phone to give your preport), and another patient is yelling in the hallway because you are 5 minutes late with his Colace, remember how excited you were to pass your NCLEX!

    Love, NAT

    Don't worry, if you did your best then you should be ok. The scores take at least two days, so for the next day or so just relax. Good luck:spin:

    Trust us - it's supposed to feel like a hard exam. The NCLEX is set up so that both passers and failers score ~50%. The level of difficulty required to keep you at 50% is what determines pass/fail (which is why it's good to get hard questions, although it's impossible to guess at the difficulty level assigned to each question).

    Given your success on your previous exams, I'd say you're looking good. The number of questions doesn't predict the pass/fail result. However, ~85% of US-educated, first-time testers do pass, irrespective of where the exam stops.

    Good luck to you! Let us know.
