    can someone please answer my question.. i took my nclex pn yesterday...
    i don't think i passed... i stopped at 85 questions..i guessed on more than half of my exam, and i got a bunch of the "easy" questions.. does that mean i answered a bunch of questions wrong b/c i got waay too many easy questions?

    also, i didn't get a single math question.. does that also mean that the computer already knew i was failing therefore it didn't give me the math calculation?!??!

    someone PLEASE HELP ME!!!!!

    You're thinking about this too hard. There is nothing here that gives us solid information about your pass/fail result. Keep in mind that both passers and failers generally get ~50% right and 50% wrong. It doesn't mean that you failed. Let us know how the result turns out.

    No that does not mean u failed but I know how u feel. I took mine on Monday and I am supposed to get the results today.My test stopped at 85 and I am going crazy too. All the people in my class or that I know that stopped at 85 passed. So far I have only read of one person on this site that failed at 85. Now I have a question, can anyone with quick results tell me how long it was before they could purchase thier results????? It has been 2 days and it is still unavailable. Did I fail? What would it say on the BON website if u failed. My name just says pending.I took my test monday 11th @ 8am. HELP!!!!!!!!

    I live in Ca not for sure how it works but I did hear that it has to be exactly 48 hrs before you can even try. But don't quote me on that. Good luck I know you will do fine. Easier said then done huh!!! I took mine yesterday and I also shut off at 85 and had 2 math and 5 meds I never heard of. I felt really good coming out of there cause my questions seemed so easy. I remembered about 60 questions I had and I have verified them in my book and so far I know I missed 3 for sure! From what I have heard is that there are pilot question 15-25 questions that do not count. So I am hoping that is true.. Good luck.

    I felt the same way you did, I actually went to the bar after taking the NCLEX and hid from my wife for 3 - 4 hours. I was afraid and absolutely sure I failed. I fortunately passed, the terrible thing about the NCLEX in my opinion is that you just start getting in test mode and the darned thing just shuts off and says your done.

    Have faith, you know more than you think you do.

    Worst case senario, you retake the NCLEX

    Good luck and Congrats on completing the PN portion of your schooling

    Hello everyone! Well, I took the PN exam today and I too stopped at 85. I'm freakin' out! I already checked my answers from the questions that I can remember and 3 were wrong! Aarrgh! This is so frustrating. What's worse is that I started at 8:00 a.m. and was finished at 9:05. I should've slowed down. I can't help but feel like a failure. I hate the fact the quick results doesn't apply here in CA. So I have to wait for 3-4 loooong weeks! Hopefully it's good news. Congrats to everyone that passed their boards and I hope to be one of them soon!

    Try not to freak out! I know easier said than done... I took mine in Feb. and I felt the sameway. I stopped at 85 and remembered ALOT of the questions I had and I knew for a fact I missed at least 3... It took me 3 weeks and 2 days to get my results. I passed and I know you passed. Just have faith in yourself. It took me about 45-50 min. to take my test. You cant wait for the results now but when the envelope does arrive your heart will drop and it will take you a few min. to open. Well, thats what happened to me at least... Where in Cali are you from? Good luck and keep us posted....
