took nclex-pn yesterday, only 85 questions

  1. I took the nclex-pn yesterday and the test shut off at 85. I've heard that means you did really good or really bad. I'm not sure if I passed, because there were very few questions where I was absolutley sure I got the answer right. There about 6 or 7 new format questions and lots of priorty questions. I'm just pretty worried right now and praying I passed.

    Don't feel so bad. I took the test today and it shut off at 85, also. I'm thinking the same thing you are, either I'm a total idiot or a freakin' genius! I'll say a prayer for you if you say one for me. Good luck (fingers crossed).

    Good luck to you too. I'm praying.

    Good luck. While the number doesn't mean anything, the majority of people with 85 questions do indeed pass.

    I took boards Sept.12 with 85 questions, and everyone was telling me that I passed but I wasn't sure. but I PASSED!!! But I know how you feel, you want to see it in black and white that you passed, that's how I was. Congrats in advanced!!! :hatparty:
