    I took my NCLEX yesterday and need some encouraging words if anyone has a spare moment. My test ended at 75, last question being a med calc. I didn't have any delegation, only like 5 SATA and I'm just worried that I was answering the lower end easier questions. I'm really freaked out and sad, not only did I possibly fail...but miserably if I only got 75 questions! I studied my butt off! I felt really confident for the first 30 questions or so but was totally lost on the last 45....there was one medical condition I had never even heard of before!! As I sit here and think of my questions I can think of ones I got wrong...someone help!

    I went over the Kaplan videos and question videos twice, did all of the question trainers and QBank...took me like 3 weeks! I read the entire Kaplan textbook, read half of Saunders...which I thought was way too easy so I stopped and about half of a Lippincott book...which I thought was way too hard so I stopped haha. Honestly if I do pass I will recommend Kaplan to everyone. The $500 is pricey but the rationales that they give do come in handy...plus its a confidence booster. I did not take the class, only the online classes so the price was $418.
    Kaplan scores were
    Q Trainer 1: 78
    2: 70
    3: 68...tough one
    I can't remember the other ones but I got a 78 on the readiness test. It seems like alot of people that only get 75 questions pass?? Maybe I'm totally off here...

    Hey Vegas..Well at this point everything's out of your hands, so really try not to stress. Don't look up your answers either!! This will only stress you out more..I failed miserably the last time I took it..I got 75 Questions. And yes there will be Diseases that you've never even heard of!!! On the bright side, I have family member who passed with 75 Questins too!! So it's really hard to tell if you passed or not..Just wait for your results. Do something Fun while your waiting, catch up with some friends, go out have lunch or a drink and just chill...Are you registered with the Nevada Board as well?? Again Goodluck to you.

    thank you again to evereyone...

    as for readiness..i think that is completely individual. if i could have, i would have taken nclex the day after graduation...i felt that ready for it. but everyone is different, and after walking out of the test thursday, i felt like i didn't take enough time.

    i had to study very little through school. i was lucky that i had alot of practical experience and had paid attention over time. i did however, take the kaplan review. do i think it was worth it? for me, no. i should have just used the online qbank, because unless you need someone there explaining rationales for a thousand questions...the review doesn't really teach you more than what's online on kaplan.
    i did use the book "nclex-rn made incredibly easy". it helped alot in brushing up on things, and also- the nclex forum here where people put out random facts (just be careful here, that you verify the info).
