    you havent gotten your results yet- so dont get to down on yourself just yet! Wait and get your results before you decide what your going to do with the REST OF YOUR LIFE! I wish you the best of luck! And just have faith that you did the best you could do and hopefully it was good enough!

    I don't totally agree with that b/c in the past 6 months I have seen people who computer shut off at 205 and they passed..and just today my friend who took it on last tuesday cut off at 85 and she failed!! So I think ya just never know??
    well, i took the test and it was alot of priority and meds i have never heard of, then on top of that it stop at 85...i stopped and top a breath, along with a pray...then i raised my hand to let the lady in charge escort me out the room...man that was a long ride home, going over the questions in my head saying i answered them correctly or not...But I had to wait 24hrs to pay for the early results, i covered my eyes when i click the results button and Dam, I PASSED, my heart was like jumpin out of my chest and i screamed, for stress relief. So all i can say is study the question format and relax, i took it the first time i had 196 so i was really worried because my career was on hold til i passed the test. SO I PASSED i still cant believe it, but i took my time, breathed and studied 2 hours a day at the library.

    Apparently, I passed...according to my friend, who looked at the MN Board of Nursing website...I still haven't had the guts to look yet. *L*
