    hi everyone, i just got back from the exam. i feel like crap and am certain i have failed.

    despite my studying and practice questions, i left there feeling as though i guessed on at least half of the questions!

    i had 77 questions and it took 2 1/2 hours.

    5 sata, 6 meds, 2 calculations, many infection control, many psych, only a couple peds. maybe 1 or 2 ob. a good amount of med surg.

    does anyone know the significance of getting the last question wrong?

    i have been searching the forum to see if anyone has passed with 77 questions...and i have not found any.

    im just in a really crappy mood right now. im so angry. i feel like this test was nothing like what i studied for!!!

    oh well, all i can do now is wait it out.

    thanks guys for letting me vent.

    Maria, I was SURE I failed, and I didn't. I don't know the exact number I got, but it shut off in the 80s I was so wrapped up in the test, I didn't even remember to look. Don't worry - wait until you find out. I felt very discouraged, too- I really did feel like I missed so many things. You don't know until you know. When you do, let us know!
    My understanding is it's usually a good thing to have a low number of questions. Hang in there! (And remember you're expected to answer fifty percent of the "Difficult" questions - if you got hard questions, that's a good sign!

    Happy Thanksgiving to all! To all who have passed NCLEX, let's be thankful for our blessings. To all who have not been successful, do not lose hope, success will come in the right time. To those who are testing soon, let the Almighty provide you with confidence, readiness, and wisdom today, tomorrow, and the day of your test. Good luck to all.

    Hi PedNurse:spin: i took my exam a day ahead yours. it didnt shut down at 77 but at 75. but i wanted to wish you luck and let you know that along with my prayers for a passing result for myself, ill include one for you as well.

    ive been surfing allnurses for half the day, looking for somebody who took it the same day as me. you're the closest one to it that ive hunted

    i pray we'll make it, and the future others too. then we could bump again here in the nclex forum and share our nclex experiences and advices to help others out.

    in the meantime, let's put this in God's hands. He will take care of us...

    im a nov 20 nclexRN test taker, and seems to be the only one. thankyou for your prayers. it's almost 2am where i'm at, and i cant seem to find sleep... my 48th hour of waiting would be at 10am later this morning. right now my entire everything system's a mess and i cant help it. but i got my faith. ive offered the results to God. He'll take care of me.

    thanks again

    Me neither, I don't think anyone will feel confident for this test. Best luck to us! What are you doing mainly these days? Practice questions or review contents? What books did you find helpfu?
    Confidence in taking the exam will come to you. However, that confidence can easily evaporate ONCE you sat down on that comfortable, reclining chair facing the computer. Especially when the 1st question appeared and you didn't know it! What made me get through it in 50 mins is by LETTING GO. After 5 mins of figuring out how to get pass by Q#1, I let go. I told myself I studied 3 months for this exam, and still have 264 chances to redeem myself. I let go of the fact that the love of my life just betrayed me, and I was alone in a foreign country, taking the most expensive, time-consuming exam of my life. To my surprise, everything became so clear! It's like finding words in Word Hunt, I easily got the stem of the question, and can answer most of it even w/o looking at the options.
    The point is, get those bad thoughts out of your mind. You have 6 hours to finish the test, so TAKE YOUR TIME. When negative emotion sets in, STOP answering until you've cleared your thoughts. DO NOT resume UNLESS you feel good about yourself. Good luck to all of you [IMG]file:///C:/DOCUME%7E1/An/LOCALS%7E1/Temp/moz-screenshot.jpg[/IMG][IMG]file:///C:/DOCUME%7E1/An/LOCALS%7E1/Temp/moz-screenshot-1.jpg[/IMG]

    In the smallest detail of life there is much for which to be thankful. In all of life itself there is no limit to the possibilities for appreciation.

    In each day, in each moment, life's blessings continuously pour forth. In the quiet times, in the grand and magnificent experiences, there is always richness upon richness in the living of life.

    Certainly there are disappointments and pains that come along on a regular basis. Yet when we stand back and look at the big picture, those difficult moments, as intense as they are, only make up a tiny fraction of the overall possibilities.

    On the whole, life is exceedingly worth any trouble, any setback, any difficulty. For always there are countless possibilities of goodness stretching out in every direction.

    The simple appreciation of the positive possibilities in any moment will begin to bring the best of those possibilities to life. Merely recalling how good life can be will serve to make it truly better.

    Life asks much of us, and yet it gives far, far more than it asks. Let's appreciate the countless possibilities, and we can indeed make the best of them real in God's Grace!
