    Everyone feels like they failed. Its normal. Dont worry about it and dont stress.

    I remember the day I took mine. A two hour drive home in silence with the looming knowledge that I had surely failed. Don't beat yourself up...you studied, you took it now take a break. Get out and do something for you. It is out of your hands right now. Either way, life will go on and I am sure you did a lot better than you think.
    take care

    I was certain I had failed my NCLEX and fortunately I was wrong! I know this is impossible but try not to stress too much. Also, Im not sure what your state is like but in Ohio you can check license verification online at the state board of nursing website. I had my results under 24 hours. It might be worth checking out.

    I think it's a good sign if you feel that way LOL. I thought I had passed my first time and was shocked when I failed. My second time I would have bet money I failed... I was like 99% sure I failed--- and somehow I passed. Hang in there... we are her for you!!!

    From what I have read, practically everyone feels that way.

    I hope you will get to share good news with us soon.


    I agree with the above poster, either way, life will go on. If you pass, GREAT! If you don't, DON'T GIVE UP!

    You are VERY normal. EVeryone I know that has taken the NCLEX feels like they failed and that it was the worst thing they have ever done.

    Don't get yourself into a slump though. I'm sure you did great!!! Keep us posted.
