Took NCLEX-RN today-75 questions

  1. Wow. That test was something else. When it cut off at 75 questions, I just sat there stunned. And now, the 48 hour wait. I sincerely feel I failed, but take a little hope from others who have posted feeling the same way and then subsequently passed. Just wanted to put a little note out to others who know this sick uneasiness. I didn't feel there was a clear answer on any of the questions, and I studied a LOT. Disheartening.

    Am now going to read the "Things to Do While Waiting for NCLEX Results" post. Good luck to everyone about to take the test or those in this excruciating waiting time.

    If it makes you feel any better...I passed on 75 questions , and like you ...was positive I flunked.....but I didn't stress over it...I just said so what....if I didn't pass, I'll just take it again...that's all. I passed after 2 weeks to the day of waiting for my results......the state I got my license in doesn't do fast results......Don't worry..I'm sure you'll pass. Good luck & please post the minute you find out!!!

    Took my exam yesterday ... it also stopped at 75. And I had, and still have, that aweful uneasiness, sistrmoon. I can't remember every being so nervous for an exam. I read and re-read those questions so many times. I felt I studied a lot and was prepared, but add in the nerves and I felt like eveything I learned went out the window. What a stinky feeling!

    Well ... see what happens tomorrow! Good luck to you too! Let us know!

    I studied using the Kaplan book, Meds publishing, and the RN learning extension course from the NCSBN. I have to say, the RN Learning extension course from the NCSBN was good. The questions on that review were the most like NCLEX questions. You can purchase the course for 49.00 (i think that is what I ended up paying) for 3 weeks of access time. Good luck in your studying.

    Well, it's hard for me not to worry, as I've got my dream job waiting for me that's already had to wait for me since I got injured in January(broken leg and foot). So, I don't know how much longer they're going to hold the job.

    I studied using the Kaplan book, ExamCram(I really liked this one..it came with a nice computer adaptive test on the CD), CliffsTestPrep(I really DIDN'T like this one...had a lot of mistakes in it), and the Springhouse Review Cards.

    They are giving you a lot of study materials to self prepare ( a lot of pages) Did you also read this pages or just did questions ? I did compare the pages it is really like big book. I am going to take this course (49.00) Just confused. Thanks.

    I passed at 75 questions. And like you, I was nervous too especially when my friend said that I finished it way too early (less than 2 hours). And what really made me nervous was when my friend knew she passed while I am still waiting to go back home to access my pc. On my way home, I was praying hard to my favourite saint and fortunately the signs I asked of her were showed to me. Until then my worries were all gone and when I checked my Pearsonvue account, I didn't even want to believe that I made it. :smiletea2:

    I just took my NCLEX-RN this morning and, needless to say, I too feel like I bombed it. I got shut off at 75 questions, no med math and I also felt like the some of the answer choices were unclear. I can completely understand how you feel after all the studying and stress. It is reassuring that I am not the only one feeling like this even though nobody should have to . Thank you to those who took it and said they passed after feeling the same way, it really will help me sleep this weekend while I wait for Monday (and my test results) to come. Gina
