    Congrats on passing!!
    I also took the NCLEX PN 3 1/2 years ago. It also stopped after 75 question. I left the testing center in tears sure that I had failed.
    But happily I had passed.
    The test stopps when it has a good idea of whether you will be a safe nurse or not. I know others who went to 200 questions and also passed. so if you stopped at 75 you should feel very good. After the minimum questions teh computer had determined that you would be a safe practicing nurse.
    Congrats again and welcome to nursing!

    I passed the NCLEX-PN in 85 Q and under and hour, and the NCLEX-RN in 75 Q and also under an hour. I was confident I passed both times. Yay for you you're all done!!! Congrats!

    When I took the NCLEX in 2000, the study book said that most people would miss about half of the questions; whether you pass and with how many questions depends on how quickly you get to the level of knowledge it takes to pass the exam.

    I would say that, in general 75 questions is a good sign! Everyone has stated the statistics on first time test takers, and I think your daughter should keep those numbers in mind. The odds are in her favor. I too only had 75 questions, and walked out of the test sure that I had failed. But I found out that I passed! Best of Luck!! I'm sure she did great!

    I took my test just last Wednesday. Your daughter's story sounds exactly like mine. It took me 2 hrs to answer 75 questions and like everyone else, I left feeling like I had failed. For 2 1/2 days I couldn't sleep, eat or even find the motivation to shower (eww, I know), but finally on Saturday morning after getting a wake up call from my mom, I decided to check the BON in CA website and sure enough they issue me a license. There is more than just average chance your daughter passed- as it seems by the replys.

    BTW, does anyone know how they decide in CA when your license expires. I noticed in comparison to some of my fellow classmates, my lecense is due to expire a few months earlier than a lot of my classmates- about 5 months to be exact.

    Hello Everyone,

    I just want to share that I just saw my quick results and I passed the NCLEX. I took the exam last Saturday and the test stopped at 75 questions.

    Like everyone else here, I thought I failed because the questions thrown at me were difficult, requiring lots of analysis.

    So it seems that stopping at 75 is a good sign.

    Thanks to everyone who share their experiences here.
